Everyone assumes the only way to look Fabulous is to buy and wear expensive pieces. This is very far from the truth. Sis, you can slay on a budget. Slaying is less about the cost of your pieces and more about the choice of pieces you decide to buy.
Here are a few tips to help you look fabulous when you’re on a budget.
Avoid logos and remove all tags from your clothes
Big logos make outfits look cheap because showing logos as a sign of reputation makes you look like you’re trying too hard and therefore reeks of desperation. If you want to look like you’ve got a fat bank account and look fabulous, don’t make yourself a walking billboard for brand names. Go for clean clothes with silent logos; go for sophisticated coats you can match with a logo-free handbag.
Buy clothes that fit your body
In most cases, wearing outfits that are too big or too small reflects poor taste or lack of resources. The most obvious sign of wealth isn’t bling, specific brands, fabric, or a particular style—it’s tailored clothes. If you want to look rich and fabulous, you need to make sure your clothes fit like they were made for your body. Clothes need to fit your form and flatter your figure, whether you’re talking about casual or formal wear.
Quality over quantity! Fewer quality pieces over lots of cheap clothes.
But being on a budget is never an excuse for buying low-quality clothing. In all honesty, I’d prefer 4-5 quality clothes to a complete wardrobe of tasteless and crappy outfits. First, never buy too many clothes at once. Then, don’t be lured into buying special offers and discounted low-quality outfits.
I think this should be common knowledge, never buy clothes to keep up with the trends. Trends come and go, and the clothes you’ve filled your wardrobe with will quickly become useless. Your wardrobe should hold tailored, versatile, and classic enough pieces that won’t go out of style any time soon. It’s worth saving money for a great pair of jeans that fit you perfectly and versatile enough to mix with other clothes in your wardrobe. A pair of well-fitting black jeans must be a good investment for the office, clubbing, and a day in the park.
Also, you want to splurge on a nice bag, make sure it’s a versatile color, that it’s big enough to suit your needs, and that it’s a style that you like.
