Fashion on a Budget

Seems like more and more people are asking how to stay fashionable on a budget. Lets face it these days everyone is also trying to save as much money as possible. However, there are many ways to stay stylish on a budget!
* Don't Impulse buy! This can leave you feeling guilty and asking yourself why you spent that amount on the item. Instead wait it out. You'll get a bigger bang for your buck. Many stores put merchandise on sale in order to prepare for the next season.
* Sign up for email lists! Many stores offer promotional and weekly emails updating you on sales
* When shopping always buy your basics. Everyone needs a good pair of black pumps, black pants, a good stylish pair of jeans, and a fun and warm winter coat. In the spring/summer buy your basic white, black, or denim shorts/skirts. That way any color tops can go with them and you can make more outfits! Accessories can also spice up an outfit. When on a budget check out H&M for fun and cheap accessories!
*Allow yourself to splurge on a few fun items you know you will wear with your basics. It's alright to treat yourself every once in a while ( if you can) just remember to treat yourself to items you know you will wear!
* Love an item but just can't afford it? RESEARCH! Go online and check out other stores/boutiques that may carry the designer and search for the best deal. Compare prices.. if that doesn't work be patient and hope/pray it goes on clearance!
