Fashion Doesn't Have To Be Expensive


We all know those people that buy one item of expensive clothing and feel like they’re the next Kim Kardashian, when their bank account is saying they’re definitely not. To be honest, we’ve probably all been guilty of this at one point or another. There’s just something about a brand new piece of clothing, that really hurts your pocket to buy, that just feel so damn good. All girls want to look their best, so sometimes life just takes us to the more expensive shops. But this article is here to tell you you don’t need to be splashing the cash all the time to look good. There are ways of looking fabulous without hardly spending a penny. Here’s how you can do it.


Upcycle

You’ll have old clothes that you don’t really like anymore, or don’t fit like they used to. Well, this doesn’t mean they have to be a write off. There’s so much you can do with old clothing to transform it to something funky and new. For example, that old top that rides up your belly a little now, you can easily turn it into a cropped top ready for the warmer weather to come back to us. All you have to do is cut a neat (ish) line all around the top. Measure it on yourself first and make sure you aren’t going too high, you’ll only waste a perfectly good top. Then, to neaten the line out a little, grab yourself a needle and some thread and triple stick the line. Fold it up slightly first to get rid of the jagged edges, and make sure it is a triple stitch. The last thing you want to be doing is walking around with it coming undone.

Shop Around

We’re all suckers for buying the first thing we see, when in reality a shop down the road could have the exact same top, or it’ll look exactly the same, for half the price. Don’t just rush to buying something because it looks perfect and you can’t live without it. Chances are it isn’t going to sell out straight away, and a quick shop around isn’t going to make it disappear. It could however, save you a lot of money. Now, this next bit of advice is something that a lot of you might turn your nose up at, but charity shops are some of the best places to grab a bargain. Some people turn their clothes in because they’ve took the tag off to find it just doesn’t fit. You could be having a brand new piece of clothing, for literally pennies. Some of the things in there might have been worn once or twice, but there’s just so many bargains to be had you’d be silly if you at least didn’t give it a go.

See, we don’t all need to walk around flashing our expensive clothes like Kimmy K to look good, there’s other ways of doing it without even spending a penny, which at this time of year is definitely a good idea.
