“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” -Coco Chanel You may not be boasting the same checkbook as a super model, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress chicly. You don’t need designer labels to look like a fashion icon; you just need taste and to know how to wear clothes regardless of where they’re from.
How Do You Carry Yourself?
The way you carry yourself in your clothes will make a world of difference. Your confidence, elegance, and grace will make or break the outfit. When shopping, buy articles that you can get the most use out of and serve as a staple. Buy pieces that you can mix and match. Blazers, cardigans, jeans, slacks, and black dresses are things you can mix up. Alternate different shoes, handbags, and accessories to vary your look. Accessories are a must. They will give your outfit a fresh look. Invest in a few nice belts and scarves. Other accessories to include are hats and fun jewelry. When considering handbags, shop for them online. There are plenty of websites and companies that make high quality handbags “inspired” by the real thing. Take a look at the latest issue of a fashion magazine and see the trend or what the celebrities are wearing if that is your way. Then go online and get a similar bag for a fraction of the cost. Consider clearance shopping for the upcoming year as a way to have the ideal wardrobe at the best price. Particularly, seasonal sale clearance shopping helps you step up your wardrobe at a fraction of the cost. If you see something that is too expensive, then wait for it to go on sale. You will have to be more patient, but it will be worth it to get the piece you want and stay in your budget. Vintage clothes are also a fun and fabulous option. You can find amazing deals at vintage stores. Look for classic styles. Of course, the cheapest way to dress on a budget is to borrow clothes! If you have a good friend with great taste and you happen to be the same size, then offer something of yours or maybe even a favor in exchange for using a fabulous item of hers. There are many great deals online. With a simple search you will find even designer names with slashed prices. Before you buy something, check online for a better deal. You CAN dress to impress without going broke. Have a limit and stick to it! Pay for it when you buy it. Remember, it isn’t what you wear but how you wear it! Happy shopping!
