7 Ways To Slay Your Style On A Budget

True story: most of us aren’t rolling around in extra money we’re willing to spend on ourselves. I can spend so much on my kids without hesitation but when it comes to myself? I’m all, “$50 bucks for a shirt?! Oh no. Can’t do that.” (Am I right, mamas?) But get this: you can still have style on a budget.

I always tell my husband, that even if we win the lottery, I’ll probably still shop at Forever 21 and H&M. If you ask me where I got this or that from, I am not ashamed to tell you I found it at Ross. I think a common misconception is that you have to have a lot of funds to feed a style addiction. You see all these Instagram accounts with red bottoms, Chanel bags, Gucci belts… as if name brands make you stylish.

Wearing name brands does not mean you have style.

I REPEAT.

Wearing name brands does not mean you have style.

Fashion may be all about name brands, but style is how you slay whatever you’re wearing. Keep reading for some of my favorite ways to keep up your style on a budget.

 

You don't need to break the bank to look like a million. Follow these tips to see how easy it is to have great style on a budget.

 

1. Stop shopping online.

Shopping online is addicting but if something doesn’t fit right and you need to send it back, chances are you’ll spend more money than you intended to. So unless you know you’ll have no trouble fitting into an item, avoid shopping online. But don’t worry, you don’t have to quit cold turkey-you can find amazing deals online for accessories (and some for really, REALLY cheap.)

 

2. Take a friend so you don’t overspend.

Even though I have trouble buying things for myself, when I do get out there sometimes I justify doing the most with “I never buy anything for myself.” While it is nice to splurge on yourself, take a friend to help keep you in check.

 

3. Sell what you never wear.

We all have clothes that just sit in our closet, waiting to be worn. We tell ourselves we’ll wear them one day but let’s face it…we know we won’t. Resale sites like Thredup, Poshmark & Depop allow you to sell those clothes and make some money back. And most importantly, clear some room for some new finds.

 

4. Go thrift store shopping.

Speaking of resale sites, aka online thrift shopping….you can find some great pieces at brick and mortar thrift stores too. I once scored a brand new pair of $200 Jeffrey Campbell boots for 13 dollars. THIRTEEN dollars y’all. Do I need to say anything else?

 

4. Save on the basics.

This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many people I see throwing away money on basics. I mean why buy a white v neck for $25+ up when you can get it for under $5?

 

6. Invest in a tailor.

It might seem a little pricey at first but you’ll ultimately save money if you love and wear clothes that fit you perfectly…and that doesn’t always happen right off the rack. Plus, you’ll look that much more put together and flawless.

 

7. SLAY GIRL, SLAY

I always say that confidence makes the clothes werk *snaps fingers*. And it’s true, it doesn’t matter how great of an outfit you have on- it all goes to waste if you don’t feel comfortable in it.

 

You don’t need to break the bank to look like a million. Once you start following these tips, you’ll see how easy it is to have great style on a budget.

Until next time loves,
