Affordable Fashion for Fashionistas on a Budget
You don’t need a million dollars to look like one. Buying an expensive outfit from an exclusive brand does not guarantee an impressive appearance. Fashion can be cheap and yet create an impact. All you need is a bit of effort in the right direction
Closet Clearance: Clearing out your closet from time to time will give you the required space to shop for new outfits. This way you can stay up to date with the latest fashion trends. You might be surprised as to how many things you might need to get rid of – too many outfits of the same colour or too many comfortable tees but no party dress or those few outfits that are waiting for you to lose just an inch, so on and so forth.
Colour: It is all about choosing the right colour. The right shades in the right composition can accentuate your looks. For example, black is and will always be in fashion. Also, any outfit in black looks expensive even if it is not.
Fit: Clothes that sit right on the body always compliment your entire ensemble. So, even when you buy outfits off-the-shelf, it is a good idea to get them tailored to fit you.
Body Shape: Learn about your body shape and wear clothes that suit your body type. For instance, if you are an apple shape then wearing crop tops will only make you look worse.
Accessorize: Invest in plenty of accessories. Whether it is jewellery or handbags or shades, accessories are important to complete a look. They add that necessary edge to an outfit. Be creative and try out different looks before you zero-in on the right one.
Innerwear: The perfect innerwear can highlight or destroy the look of an outfit. Wearing the right bra or underwear helps an outfit to sit perfectly on the body.
Sales: Sales are a great way to enjoy brands at affordable prices. So even with a limited budget you can still own a Jimmy Choo.
Thrift Shops: Thrift shops and flea markets are great places to pick up fashion at an affordable rate. Ofcourse, only if you have an eye for it. Street shopping at Sarojini Nagar (New Delhi), Colaba (Mumbai), Pratunam (Thailand), Oxford Street (London) are amongst some well-known locations for budget shoppers.
Last but not the least, everything looks good with the right attitude. So be confident and most importantly love yourself.
