8 Ways to Dress for Less and Still Look like a Million Bucks...


Being a college student, I pride myself on finding ways to dress for less.

As much as I’d like to go crazy buying up new trends and expensive shoes, it just doesn’t work in my budget.

Many students like me have budgets that we must stick to.

No worries though!

I’ve found ways to stretch the dollar so that I can dress for less.

1. Clearance

Since I know I’m on a budget and I must dress for less, I head my hips straight to the clearance rack.

Clearance may have things from last season, but in all honesty the change in clothes from summer to spring, or fall to winter, isn’t all that different.

Just check it out;

you’ll never know if you don’t try, right?

2. Thrift Shopping

Thrifting is probably the easiest way to dress for less.

Most items in the thrift shop, although worn, are only gently used.

If you know you’re going to be shopping for specific things just pop into a thrift shop and see what they have, before you go to a department store.

3. Hand-Me-Downs

To dress for less or, wait, there is no "or"!

Dressing for less is something that our parents grew up with and forced us to do if we sisters.

Now, it’s possible to still wear hand-me-downs.3

The funky styles of the 80s and the 90s have made a comeback.

Take your mom’s prom dress for example.

I bet you can wear it to work as a maxi and it’d be perfectly fine.

Just try it!

4. Glam It Yourself

Do-It-Yourself crafts are another way to dress for less.2

Just poke around on YouTube or check out Pinterest, or anywhere on the Internet really, and I can guarantee you’ll find great ideas for DIY projects...

or as I like to call them Glam-It-Yourself.
