7 Top Tips for Dressing with Style on a Low Budget ...


Don’t fret about dressing with style on a low budget!

It’s much easier than you think.

I’ve had to dress cute and fashionable on a budget since I was 15 and first started working.

I started buying all my own clothes at this age, and besides gifts, I continue to do this to this day.

I have also never had large amounts of money to spend on clothes, and have had to be pretty resourceful.

Believe me, I wouldn’t buy pricey name brands now if you paid me to!

I enjoy finding cute clothes that last a long time that are budget buys.

There’s nothing better than that, and also having plenty of money to spend on something else.

Check them out below and let me know if you have any of your own to share!

1. Try Consignment Shops

When I was a teen, consignment shops were one of my first stops for dressing with style on a low budget.

For starters, many people I knew, including myself, sold clothes to consignment shops, so I knew the clothes would be cute.

You also needn’t worry about someone knowing you bought it there.

For starters, who cares, and secondly, they won’t know if you bought it there or the local mall.2

Most consignment shops only carry the absolute latest trends, not older fashioned stuff.

I like this idea better than thrift stores because they’re more selective about their inventory and keeping it up to date.

The bonus is getting inexpensive clothes that are in style and lightly worn.

2. Shop Superstores

Can I tell you a secret?

My favorite places to shop these days are Wal-mart, Target and TJ Maxx.

I have no shame in this either!

I love saving money and all these stores now carry designer name brands, not just unknown brands that don’t fit or last.

Walmart now carries my favorite brand of LEI jeans, and Target’s Mossimo line is one of my favorite.

I always hit up TJ Maxx when I want a good budget buy that’s super trendy from top designers.

I’ve found $400 bags at T.J.

Max for under $50 and tops for as low as $6 or $7.

Being frugal is about being honest.

If the clothes are cute, long-lasting, and fashionable, do you really care where they come from?2
