Summer Fashion on a Shoestring Budget

Being a fashionista is expensive, especially if you like nice clothes. There are many ways you can save money on your wardrobe but we’re so used to simply buying new things we sometimes don’t realize that there’s no need. In fact, you can easily revamp your wardrobe for summer and spend less than $100 doing it.

Revamping

Start by revamping your own wardrobe. Do you have items that can be reused, cut up, customized or adjusted to make them new again? Refashioning, a term meaning taking your existing fashion and making it new again is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to revamp your wardrobe for summer. Cut your jeans into shorts, cut long t shirts into crop tops, cut sleeves off, and consider adding some simple embroidery or beading yourself. You can literally have several “new” items without spending a penny just with a pair of scissors and some thread. Another great thing about refashioning is that you can also use your partner’s wardrobe for items they no longer need like this awesome shirt outfit:

Thrifting

Thrift hunting is a love/hate experience. Some people love finding bargain items, especially those that have designer labels for next to nothing. The issue is that thrifting is often time consuming. Consider hunting in stores in areas where the looks you’re after are more likely to be found. If you’re in an upscale area you’re more likely to find upscale items at the thrift store, the same goes for boho or hippy looks. Thrifting has also made it online and while searching on ebay is tedious, stores like ASOS Marketplace, Poshmark, ThredUP, and Refashiona are all much easier to navigate and look like normal online shopping. Refashiona even has a memory section so that you can read a little about the “experience” of the clothing you’re looking at.

 

Swapping

Clothes swaps have gotten more popular recently. These parties are groups of people coming together with their unwanted items and having a swap sale. If you like something you trade with an item of yours. Everyone gets new clothes and no one has to spend a penny! These parties are perfect for people on a budget as long as you’re wearing a fairly common size. If you’re struggling to get items that fit you consider hosting your own party for only those items such as plus or petite.

Yard Sales

Yes, yardsaling usually isn’t for clothes but thanks to things like facebook marketplace and craigslist many sales have gone online so you can browse from the comfort of your own home. If you find something you like make sure you’re making the meet safely by only bringing the cash you’ve agreed on, leaving valuables at home, and meeting in a well lit public area. This is one of the cheaper choices for a wardrobe revamp because most people avoid buying used clothes they can’t try on but if you’re pretty sure of your size or are buying an item to refashion anyway then it’s perfect. Don’t be afraid to ask if you can try something on first and make sure you ask all the details before handing over any money.

Clearance Sales

 

Walk the stores and you’ll be sure to find Clearance Racks. These are usually items marked down for quick Sale. Most of the time to make room for next Season’s Fashion. Sometimes, they may be marked “Damaged” and only require a quick Fix. You can see some New Clearance Items Reduced in our Shop Online Store Here:On Trend Clearance
