Style changes with the seasons, but remixing the contents of your wardrobe every season can be costly. Fancy updating your look but don't have the budget? Keep reading for our top tips and tricks on how to revamp your wardrobe for less.
Learn How to Sew
Why not treat yourself to a crash course in dressmaking and watch the bank balance rise as you spend less on clothes? Once you learn how to sew, you can make yourself a glittering array of garments in bespoke fabrics in styles that suit your personality. You’ll spend a fraction of the cost of buying from stores and your clothes will be one of a kind. If you’re not a crafty type, why not spruce up your old clothes with DIY embellishments?
Host a Clothes Swapping Party
One girl’s trash is another girl’s treasure and chances are, your friends are feeling wardrobe-fatigue too. Why not grab a bunch of pals and host a terrific clothes trade party? Even if you don’t find anything you like, you’re bound to have fun in the process!
Invest in Key Pieces
Rather than being a slave to trends and updating your wardrobe every season, why not invest in a few simple, elegant staples that will last the test of time? A great quality winter coat in an everlasting design is worth ten cheap and cheerful jackets, so source your new purchases carefully and considerately (a top tip for all you impulse shoppers!).
Take Advantage of Sales and Deals
If you must buy clothes new from the store, make sure you’re getting the best deal possible by waiting for sale season to start. Most shops are online these days, so scour the internet for coupons and flash deals to make sure you save the most money possible.
Do a Good Deed
If you're set on a few new seasonal additions, why not get a warm feeling inside and donate old and unwanted items to a charity shop. That way you scour for bargains at the same time, safe in the knowledge you've helped someone out.
