7 Tips To Save Money On Clothes
We all want to have a fabulous wardrobe, but most of us don't want to pay the extortionate prices that designers like to charge. However...
1. Learn How to Make Your Own
Learning how to make different items of clothing probably isn't as hard as you think it is. Some items will be difficult, but you can move on to them after you've successfully made the basics. If you've ever had dreams of becoming a fashion designer, this idea is perfect for you. All you need is the material and a sewing machine. Imagination helps too. You'll own clothes that nobody else in the world has!
2. Shop In Charity Shops
Vintage shops are full of quirky buys that again, nobody else will have. Shopping for vintage clothes is more eco friendly, as it's like recycling the garments. Many of them are in great condition and you'll add a unique touch to your wardrobe. The same goes for charity shops. You just need to be patient enough to sift through and find the good stuff.
3. Try Designer Outlets
Designer outlets often sell quality garments at a fraction of the price. This may be for a stupid reason, such as the label being sewn in wonky. That doesn't make it any less real though! You can find lots of designer steals at places like this.
4. Save Coupons & Discount Codes
You probably don't realise it, but coupons and discount codes are there all the time. They get sent in the post, in magazines, and even to your email address. Many fashion bloggers have codes to give their readers, so in most cases it's a case of doing a quick search online to get a discount code at your favorite shop or some GUESS coupons. Never purchase anything online without searching for a discount code first!
5. Hold Clothes Swap
If you and your friends all have a love for clothes and are similar in sizes, then you may like to hold a clothes swap. You can invite as many people as you like. All you need to request is that everybody bring a bag of their unwanted clothes. You can then negotiate and swap things you don't want of your own with things you'd like of theirs. This is a great way to recycle! Something you're bored of will seem brand new to your friend, and vice versa.
6. Buy Second Hand
By searching on sites like eBay, Depop and Craigslist, you can buy second hand items. Many of these have only been worn once, so you know you're going to get a quality item. In many cases you can find something you've been lusting after on eBay for half the price.
7. Keep An Eye On Sales
Keep your eyes peeled to find designer sales online. A pair of KG shoes that were once extortionately priced, could be found with 60% off or more.
