DESIGN SCENE GUIDE: How To Stay Fashionable On A Budget

Pretty much every single woman out there wants to look her very best. She’ll want to wear the nicest clothing and pamper herself with the greatest makeup. The only problem here is that this can be very expensive. Usually, the best fashion accessories and attire are much more expensive than non-trendy items. A lot of women do not have the money to splurge and look great all of the time. The good news is that you can still be fashionable even while operating on a limited budget.

You’ll find out how below. Read more after the jump:


First and foremost, you should realize that pretty much every store out there is going to hold a sale at some point or another. At the end of the winter, most clothing boutiques are going to discount their winter attire. You might not be able to wear the clothing immediately, but it will save you a lot of money. With that being said, buying out of season is a wise decision. You should also do your best to take advantage of store closings. When a store is set to close, they’ll be eager to get rid of everything and the prices will be greatly reduced.

Buy From Friends

Whether you’re looking for clothing or accessories from LYR Design or another trendy designer, you’ll definitely want to speak with your friends. There is a good chance that your friends have some of these items and they may no longer want them. Instead of letting them get dumping in the trash, you should offer to buy them. You’ll get a big discount and you’ll get great clothing too. Just make sure that your friend isn’t trying to stiff you!


If you want to be very clever and you’re working on a very limited budget, you’ll want to try trading items. There is a possibility that your girlfriend loves your shoes and you love her earrings. Why shouldn’t you swap with her? You’ll get the item that you want and you won’t pay for anything. Plus, you’ll be clearing up a little space in your room or closet!

Charity Shops

If you want to find deep discounts on fashionable items, you should definitely check out the local charity shops. Goodwill and other charities take donations and sell them at a deep discount. You’ll be surprised at the amazing items that you can find in these stores. Unfortunately, not everything is going to be great and some items are going to need a lot of cleaning. Just keep this in mind when you enter a charity store. Nevertheless, they’re well worth checking out.

Sell It All

Finally, you should try selling some of the items that you no longer want or need. Your closet is probably crammed full of clothing that you no longer wear. If this is the case, you should sell it at a yard sale or put it on eBay. This will help you solve two problems in one action. You’ll clear up space and you’ll be adding a little of cash to your pocket!
