Can You Buy Clothes On A Budget?

Posted by

One of the biggest questions for women (and sometimes, men as well!) is how to maintain a proper wardrobe on a budget. The first question: is it actually possible? The answer, is yes, of course it is! The second question: if so, how? Read on below to find out!

  • Quality over quantity – clothes can be some of the most expensive things you can buy if you look hard enough. You can find branded clothing such as sass and bide pants tops online, but even then, the price tags can be quite intimidating. What most people do when on a budget is making their way to the sales cart of the department store and picking out the cheapest tops and bottoms in bulk. The thing is, cheaper clothes tend to be of a lower quality, which means the clothes you buy will ultimately get ruined much faster than the higher quality, more expensive articles of clothing you do not buy. The point is, save money and buy a few quality tops that you can wear for years instead of annually buying new clothes.
    • Time your purchases – the year-end and festivities-related sales can end up like warzones, and they can make the whole appeal of shopping quite dismal, but you cannot deny the fact that you can easily save hundreds of bucks on your favourite Camilla dresses sale. Accordingly, another good point for building your wardrobe on a budget is to always try to buy clothes during sale events. Remember, the sales do not always have to be the largest sales of the year – such as Black Friday – even your regular weekend sales or end of season sales are good ways to spend less!
      • Know how to take care of your clothes – most people do not think twice about labels but throw all their clothes into the washing machine. The most you can expect the average person to do is separate clothes on the basis of colour or type. However, this can be one of the biggest reasons why your clothes get easily ruined. As you would know, each article of clothing comes with a specific label which denotes the instructions on how it should be washed, dried and ironed. If you do not understand what the symbols denote, simply google them – but the point is to follow them (or try your best to follow them). You will find your clothes will last longer than usual (or more correctly, last as long as they are supposed to).
        • Have rules with buying clothes – and finally, always follow this general rule when buying clothes: unless it is for a specific event (and you cannot do without it), do not buy an article of clothing that you cannot pair up with at least three other articles of clothing in your wardrobe for three different outfits.
