Purchase staple clothes

As stated at Lifehack, the first thing that you should do in your bid to style yourself on a budget is to purchase a few staple items of clothing. This means opting to invest in garments that are neutral and uncomplicated — a good old-fashion plain white T-shirt, for instance. By filling your wardrobe with these kinds of items, you will have more options when it comes to combing and accessorizing certain styles. As a result, you will be able to avoid wearing the same style twice without having to constantly go out and purchase new clothes.

Make your style stand out at big events

The clothes that you wear on a day-to-day basis play a major role in your overall style, there’s no denying that, but it’s at the big events where your fashion sense will draw the most attention. If you cannot afford to kit yourself out in the most stylish garments on a day-to-day basis, base your expensive purchases around your upcoming events instead. By dressing up at big events, you will ensure that more people see you wearing the very best items of clothing.

Whether it’s a birthday party, a wedding, a christening, or a national holiday, if you have a big event coming up in your diary, splash the cash and make sure you look amazing at it! If this leads you to explore cash loans so that you can afford the very best clothes, then so be it. So long as you know you are going to be capable of paying back the money you borrow on time and in full, there’s nothing wrong with taking out a short-term loan in order to finance your style.

Invest in one or two statement items

No matter what you are wearing, you can create the illusion that you are supremely stylish by wearing or even holding items that make a statement. These items will distract onlookers from the rest of your ensemble, which, in turn, will allow you to source cheaper clothing options.

A briefcase is one such item that is always sure to make a statement no matter where you carry it. When you delve into the market for a new briefcase, ask yourself the following questions and you’ll be sure to find the perfect one for you:

  • What will you be carrying in the briefcase?
  • Is there a day-to-day purpose of the briefcase?
  • What type of work do you do?
  • Which material would you like your briefcase to be made of?
  • What color do you want the case to be?
  • Will your favorite case be consistently convenient? If not, are there more practical options?

See, you really can stay stylish on a budget! By filling your wardrobe with staple items of clothing, by investing in one or two statement items, and by resolving to stand out at big events, you’ll be sure to turn heads no matter how much you spend on styling yourself.
