5 Tips for Minding Your Budget While Still Killing the Fall Fashion Game
Looking to start fall in style, but can’t trust your budgeting when it comes to shopping? Check out these five tips to rock that fall fashion without breaking the bank!
Keep it simple with staple items
It can be so easy to fall in love with trendy prints and patterns, but when push comes to shove, you can’t wear those memorable items multiple times a week without raising some eyebrows. Keep it simple with staple items that you can wear more frequently, creating multiple outfits, making what could have been just one in to three!
Did someone say sale?
Have you ever found an item you couldn’t live without, bought it at full price, and then saw it a month later on sale for half the price? Believe us, we know it happens more often than not. Tip: take note of awesome finds you must have now and put a reminder in the notes app on your phone to check back in a month. You’ll most likely find a surprise deal that could save you tons of cash!
Turn your summer favorites in to fall trends
We all have that favorite summer outfit that we dread giving up when the cold weather blows in. What if there were a way to continue wearing it, but with a little twist? Try layering! Wear your favorite tank under a jean jacket or a long sweater over an everyday t-shirt dress. Not only does it change things up, but you’ll be able to wear some of your summer favorites all year long!
Stay away from online shopping
Yes, we know it seems impossible! It’s easy when shopping online to throw everything in your cart and press the checkout button, whereas in a store you can easily decide if something doesn’t fit or just isn’t what you were looking for. Plus, who wants to go through the process of online returns anyway?
Take note of what you already own
When shopping for your fall wardrobe, take note of what you already own so you’re not buying something new just because. For example, do you really need that twelfth white t-shirt or a fourth pair of black booties? We’re all at fault of this, but why not save on what you already own and treat yourself to something new!
And remember that nothing tops off a new fall look better than a great smile! Good luck and happy (budget) shopping!
