How to Stay Fashionable on a Shoestring Budget


Want to stay fashionable but your bank account can’t seem to keep up? Worry not, for there are a lot of ways on how you can stay stylish without breaking the bank. Simply put the following tips to work if you want to dress to impress even with a shoestring budget.


  1. Opt for Timeless Accessories

A lot of jewellery and clothing stores in Singapore sell unique accessories each year, but most of these items actually lose their popularity in less than a year. To avoid wasting your precious money on these pieces, choose to keep timeless accessories on your wardrobe instead. Some of these accessories that you’re better off investing is a vintage black dress, a pair of classic hoop earrings and an infinity scarf. If you’re careful enough, these pieces should at least keep you looking stylish for five years.

  1. Know Your Clothing Store

Once you find clothing shops that work for you fit-wise, start getting familiar with their sales, as well as how they price their items. If you know that they often mark their products down, then wait for that particular item that you love to go on sale. Finding a store that fits you size-wise also helps because when you already know what your size is, you can just order stuff online without worrying whether or not it’ll fit you.

  1. Get Creative With Your Clothes


Even if you don’t have the budget to purchase clothing pieces from Paragon Shopping Centre or The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, it’s still possible to make your clothes stylish by doing a little bit of DIY. Not only will your clothes look more fashionable than most generic styles, they’ll be completely exclusive. Plus, you don’t need to worry about showing up on an event and finding another person wearing the same outfit as yours.

  1. Mix and Match Your Outfits

Mixing your affordable clothes with one or two investment pieces is another way of looking stylish without breaking the bank. Simply splurge one a pair of jeans that fit perfectly, a pair of classic pumps and a nice purse, then just fill in gaps with your inexpensive accessories and separates. Now, you get to stay as fashionable as you want without breaking the bank.

  1. Get Inspiration From Someone Else’s Style

Getting inspiration from other people’s outfit choice is another way of making shopping for clothes easier and cheaper for you. When you see a getup on someone that you absolutely like, immediately go back to your wardrobe and assess the pieces that you already have. Through this, you’ll get an idea as to what items you lack, allowing you to focus on purchasing these items as you start shopping.

Staying fashionable doesn’t have to cost you that much. If you’re just creative and resourceful enough, you’ll definitely be able to come up with several outfits that certainly won’t go out of style.
