As someone who loves to combine latest trends and wardrobe staples daily, I am very much aware of how costly getting dressed can be. With that in mind, being smart with my clothing purchases on a monthly and seasonal basis has become very important to me. However, I understood that shopping does not have to mean breaking the bank. You can look chic while staying on your budget.
I always try to spend less on trendy things that I know will not be usefull in a next season. It would be just waste of money. So instead of buying Réalisation’s Naomi slip skirt (which is, by the way, gorgeous) for $180.00 I bought the one from ASOS for $39 and couldn‘t be happier about my decision.
Of course, there are things that are really worth the investment. A dark pair of skinny jeans can be a good investment since it is easy to pair with clothing items that will allow for a smooth transition from day to night. The classic little black dress, white shirt, a good pair of boots, a nice handbag, a nice suit, and a good pair of sneakers are some of the wardrobe essentials that you want to own.
So if you’re on a budget and are looking to save but still want to buy some affordable and trendy items, let me suggest that you consider some of these items below.
