December is finally here, which means that it’s now officially winter. As well as dreaming of snow, chic tree decorations and all that yummy Christmas food. There’s probably one other thing on your mind – your winter wardrobe.
Come winter, and all the most beautiful scarves, polo necks, ankle boots, and bobble hats appear, as if by magic. Not to mention all those beautiful sparkly dresses, perfect for those office parties you’re sure to attend.
We would all love to treat ourselves to a whole new winter wardrobe. But sadly, with presents to buy, the reality is that many of us can’t afford to treat ourselves. Or can we? Money might be tight, but that doesn’t mean you can’t upgrade your winter wardrobe.
Want to stay stylish this winter without breaking the bank? The good news is, with these tips, you can.
Buy from wholesale sites
Have you ever wondered how some people always stay in style, even when they’re skint? Wholesale sites are the answer – these are the gems of the fashion world. These sites offer reduced prices on various items, making it easier and more affordable to stay stylish. From clothing sites to online accessory stores, if you look around you can find some incredible deals.
The best part about buying from these sites is the fact that the quality tends to be high. Although items, like wholesale bags, are affordable, they tend to be well made, and of course, stylish. They’re not knock off designs; they’re well-designed items sold at discounted prices. Pretty amazing, right?
Sell unwanted clothes
The chances are that you have a few items in the back of your wardrobe that you never wear, am I right? If money is tight, but you need to update your wardrobe, have a clear out and sell what you don’t want.
As long as the bits you’re selling are in good condition, you should make a tidy profit. Obviously, the brand of the item will affect how much it’s worth – designer items will always go for more money than high street ones.
Where you choose to sell your old clothes is up to you, but websites like eBay and Vinted are great for selling pre-loved items on. Facebook selling and swap groups can be great for selling unwanted clothing – so make sure to check these out. Any money that you make from selling your unwanted items can go towards your new wardrobe.
Take advantage of discounts
The key to being fashionable when money is tight is shopping the sales. Oh yes, sales really are a skint girl’s best friend. If you notice that a store is having a deal day, take advantage and have a browse. The chances are that if you look hard enough, you’ll find the odd gem to two.
To ensure that you don’t miss any discounts offered by your fave stores, sign up for email updates. That way, you’ll automatically be notified when there is a sale or discount day on.
When it comes to sales, many stores offer as much as 50 percent off. When money is a little tight but you still want to look stylish, taking advantage of these deals is a must.
It may seem almost impossible to be stylish when money’s tight, but it doesn’t have to be.
