Keeping fashion budget-friendly isn’t just about scouring the clearance racks. Make the most of your style investments by choosing items that you can get the most use out of. These items are easy on your wallet and will keep you looking stylish for every occasion.
An everything dress
Dresses can be the most unnecessarily pricey fashion item if you aren’t careful. To make your purchase as budget-friendly as possible, you want to make sure it’s something that can be worn in the greatest number of circumstances. A dress that falls just above the knee is perfect, since you can dress it up with heels for a night on the town or pair it with some plain stockings for a more professional look. Also aim for a cut that isn’t too cleavage-baring, one that can be used as work wear or dressed up with a hot necklace to accent your decolletage on the weekends. H & M offers dresses that are both flirty and chic. And starting at just $19.95, they’re a purchase you can certainly feel good about!
A do-it-all scarf
Scarves are the perfect budget-friendly accessories because it’s incredibly easy to find inexpensive options and they can also be used in a multitude of ways. For example, spend a mere $15 to buy one at Spring and you’ll have a great do-everything accessory. Sweep it easily around your neck for a super relaxed look, or roll it thin shape and wrap it around your head in lieu of a headband. Or, for a simple way to colour up your accessories, tie it creatively to a neutral-toned purse.
An embellished tank
Tank tops are among the most inexpensive clothing items out there. And an embellished one is an extra-great investment since it looks great under a blazer for work or all on its own for a night out. Urban Planet has plenty of stylish tanks that are easy to customize however you need.
Leggings are a wondrous item of clothing to have, seeing as you can easily get a pair for under $10 and they can be worn with a wide variety of pieces. If you want to make a bold fashion statement but aren’t ready to fork over a hundred bucks for a magenta blazer, try magenta leggings. Leggins come in virtually every colour, pattern and print imaginable, so you can surely find the look you crave. Or, if you’re more in the mood for bottoms that can be worn with just about anything, go for a solid black legging. Just make sure, when purchasing cheap leggings, that you stretch and bend in them in the fitting room before you buy. Some leggings are inexpensive because they’re made with cheap, thin fabric , which may show off far more than you intend when you bend over. But once you’ve tested them out, they’re a purchase you can definitely feel good about!
