Fashion magazines give you the illusion that you have to spend a lot of money on expensive clothes in order to duplicate the same classy and chic look as the models in the advertisements.

But in actuality, you can be just as elegant and trendy as those models, even if you are on a budget. You just have to know how to maximize the power of your spending money. Many times, it is not what you buy that enhances the sophistication of an appearance, it is how you wear it. By allowing yourself to think creatively when purchasing clothing and accessories, not only can you be in style on a tight budget, but you can constantly keep your wardrobe updated without breaking the bank.

Learn How To Be A Picky Charity Store Shopper

It can be tempting to turn your nose up at the thought of digging through thrown-away clothes, but many people do not know that higher end stores dispose of their seasonal clothing by donating them to charity shops. That means you could find brand new items from department stores and boutique that still have the price tag on them. Even more, high priced, name brand purses, wallets, belts and fashionable jewelry can be found at charity shops, hardly used and like new. What is better is that many charity shops do not know the true value of the items they receive, which means you can pay a few pounds for items that cost hundreds, even thousands of pounds. That makes charity shop shopping a very attractive method for buying trendy clothes by spending the least possible.

Shop Online

There are many stylish clothes and accessories sold on the internet. Many online stores such as Mydeals offers voucher codes and discount codes that allow you to buy the clothing that is hard to find in the stores, but at a discount that fits your budget appropriately. Many of the items you will find online are hard, if not impossible, to find in the department stores. And if you managed to find them, the price is likely to be marked up significantly. By shopping online, you can add signature pieces to your wardrobe so that you stay under your spending allowance, but remain stylish.

Buy Separate Items That Offer Versatility And Flexibility

One of the tricks that models use to achieve classy looks is to reassemble old piece with new piece to create an entirely new look. The best way to get the most out of your budget is to buy interchangeable pieces That could be paired in different arrangements. Colour blocking is a popular way of combining tops and bottoms of varying colours while still creating a unified and stylish look. You approach this technique by shopping intones, such as browns and blues. Or, you could pair a series of colours together that all work together. For instance, grey and yellow work together well. Yellow also looks appealing when worn with orange, and grey looks regal next to blue. If you shop for a collection of tops, bottoms, purses, shoes, belts and jewellery in each of those colours, you can create countless numbers of colour coordinated combinations that are extremely sleek and individualized. Just pair any of 2 colours at a time, coordinate the clothing and accessories so they complement each other, and you could find yourself wearing a unique ensemble every day of the week.

Now that you are aware of ways that you can be fashionable while monitoring your spending, the only thing left to do is beside the types of looks you are going for. You might be feeling bold and want a new hairstyle or hair colour to compliment your new look. However, you choose to approach this new direction, try to incorporate your personality into it. After all, your fashionable appearance is a creative way to express yourself to the world and those around you.
