Chic On A Budget: Unleashing The Fun In Frugal Fashion Finds

Clothes shopping can be an expensive process, but luckily there are plenty of ways to save money so we are going to dive right into how you can create your capsule wardrobe or help you find one-of-a-kind pieces to add to the collection.

Shop Online

Quite often, you can find the best deals online, plus there is the fact that you can quickly view clothing options sold at different retailers, allowing you to find clothing options that best suit your preferences. When you click on many clothing websites, there will be a popup message or a website banner stating that if you sign up for their email newsletter, you will get an additional discount on your purchase. This is a good thing to do to reduce your spending and keep up to date with your favourite brands. 

On top of this, you can also search for the website name with “voucher codes” on Google. You may be able to find websites that have money-off codes that you can enter into the website you are buying your clothes from, allowing you to get further discounts. Some of these codes may not work, but by trying several from different websites, you are likely to find one that does. 

Shop Around

Make sure you are looking at clothing options from several different retailers before you make your purchase; this can allow you to better understand the average price you should be paying for certain items. This means that if you come across a clothing piece that is way more expensive than the rest, you can avoid it unless it is something that you want. 

Shop During Sales

Waiting until sales is a great way to save money, no matter what you are buying and clothes are no exception. Most clothing retailers have at least one sale per season of the year, which means that generally there are at least 4 sales per year. This means that you won’t have to wait too long to take advantage of a money-off sale; in some sales, you can save up to 70% of the full retail price. There are plenty of different sales during the winter season, offering men’s hoodie sales and other winter clothing discounts that can help you save money and stay warm during the winter. 

Make A Budget

Even if you find some great deals, you are still spending money when you click the buy button. It is important to be mindful of your spending to ensure that you do not accidentally overspend. It can be easy to spend money when you are shopping for clothes for your next event. To avoid doing this, you should make a spending budget before you start looking at clothes and stick to it as best you can.  

Choose Quality Over Quantity

Ensuring you are buying good quality clothing from respected brands can mean that the clothing you do buy will last for longer. This is because the clothing manufacturer’s process and the materials used will be of higher quality than cheaper alternatives. This can provide you with better value for money than buying cheap items of clothing, as cheaper fast fashion clothing items are likely made out of materials that are of lower quality, meaning that cheaper clothing items are likely to wear out and break quicker than clothing of higher quality. Meaning that you are likely going to have to replace cheaper clothing more often. Buying high-quality clothing lasts longer and can save you money down the road. 

Shop Second Hand

Buying clothes from a charity shop, a car boot store, or second-hand websites such as eBay can leave you with some amazing savings and expose you to a range of new styles and brands that you may never have heard of before. By shopping second-hand you can sometimes find clothing that is almost brand new at marked-down prices. Other pieces of clothing may have some scuffs or marks but you will be able to negotiate the price down when you notice these defects. You could even get some great vintage pieces, like fun 80’s mens clothing styles that are making a comeback! 

Mend Your Broken Clothes 

If you have clothes that have rips, or tears or are broken in some other way, you should consider either learning how to fix them yourself or taking them to a clothes repair shop to get them fixed. In many cases, the cost of repair will be a lot less than the cost of purchasing a new piece of clothing to replace your broken items. While you are repairing old clothes, you can make them unique in your own way by sewing a different colour material onto them than what was originally made by the manufacturer.

Buy Childrens Shoes

If you have smaller feet, you may find that children’s shoes fit you; this can allow you to save considerably whenever you are buying shoes. Children’s shoes these days come in many different styles and many of them look the same as adult trainers, so there is no need to worry that people are going to notice.

Swap Children’s Clothes

When smaller children get older, they rapidly outgrow their old clothing, meaning that clothing for your child can quickly become expensive. You can mitigate this by swapping children’s clothing with other families and speaking to friends and family with children who have already outgrown the clothing that you require for your child, as they may have some clothing that they can give you.
