Many of us think that if we don’t have an endless amount of money to spend on clothing, that we will never be able to achieve a more stylish look, but this is fast from the case. Even if your budget is very limited, there are lots of things you can do to improve your wardrobe and look more stylish each day, as you will see below.
Easy Ways to Be More Stylish on a Small Budget
Throw out anything that isn’t right
You might think, being on a budget, you need to hold on to as many clothes as you can, but if anything in your wardrobe doesn’t fit, doesn’t look good on you, or doesn’t meet your style goals, toss it out, or even better donate it, and take a look at what is left and how you can streamline what you have to make as many cute outfits as possible. This will almost always end up with your looking more stylish because you will have kept the best of your wardrobe.
Curate a capsule wardrobe
When you are on a small budget, then quality is much more important than quantity. Instead of buying lots of pieces of cheap clothing, it is better to invest in one higher quality item like one of these beach graphic tees or a statement coat that will last you for years. Read up on capsule wardrobes, work out the minimum number of items you will need to make it work for you, and set about filling your wardrobe only with the best of each item you can afford.
Make unexpected choices
Most of us are very safe with our sense of style, We wear clothing in the same expected way that everyone else was, and it means that we don’t stand out or look particularly fashion-forward. So, it stands to reason, if you want to look more stylish on a budget, you should think about wearing clothing differently so you will stand out and make a splash. For example, you could team your leopard print blouse with a long floral skirt to have a clash of patterns or you could wear a leather biker jacket with a beautiful ball gown to create contrast in that way, Think outside the box and your style will certainly start to improve.
Focus on accessories
If you don’t have a large fashion budget to play with, then accessories are your best friend. A really beautiful bag or a bold pair of shoes can transform even the plainest outfit. Even cheap costume jewelry can transform a boring white blouse into a stunning outfit if you choose judiciously and create contrast in terms of color, style, and texture. So, make sure you have a well-stocked accessories section in your wardrobe and make sure you make use of it by accessorizing every single outfit you wear and you will be known as someone who is effortlessly stylish.
So, you see, it really is possible to look more stylish when you only have a small budget to work with, you just need to be smart about your fashion choices.
