Even the simplest dress becomes much more valuable when it is appreciated and a lot more worthy when envied. What good is a piece of accessory if it does not get you a few dozen compliments?
You know you’re a fashionista if dressing-up is your favorite game and you always dress to kill for every social do. While you may love being addressed as a fashion icon and enjoy the perks and authority that come with it, you have to admit, being fashion-forward and stylish at all times is not always affordable.
There are, however, certain tricks you can use to meet both, your fashion and finance goals. Here are a few tips that will help you be fashionable without breaking the bank.
1. Find Big Brands at Lesser Rates
You may like sporting the coolest brand and being applauded for your style quotient, but wearing brands doesn’t guarantee that you will make a style statement. Further, most brands come at a high price.
To resolve this dilemma, many online shopping sites offer big brands at lower prices. These are usually resale items but in good condition. You will get them at a reasonable price with a lot more variety to choose from compared to a regular physical store. So do your research, browse through multiple online sites and grab a steal.
2. Subscribe to Newsletters for Secret Sales
When it comes to shopping online, a valuable piece of advice is to subscribe to the newsletters of all the best shopping websites. While you may feel that the endless promotional emails from them will jam your inbox, there are some worthy benefits of receiving them too, namely free fashion tips and notifications for secret sales!
Several shopping websites offer a sneak peek into their website’s secret sales to their subscribers. This means only you (and the other subscribers, of course) will know about and be able to buy the merchandise at slashed prices. Shoppers and visitors who haven’t subscribed will not be able to see or access these sales at all. So, hit that subscribe button now and revel in your stylish exclusivity.
3. Keep Checking Local Websites
If you are a frequent online shopper, you already know this trick. For others, a good way to grab the coolest stuff at affordable prices is to browse through shopping sites of local vendors. So, if it’s a specific Flamenco skirt or an exotic pair of Indian jutis you are looking for, Google the top ten local Indian or Spanish shopping sites. Of course, Amazon and eBay will feature right on top of the list but do check the sites listed below them. You will find gorgeous stuff at affordable prices.
These sites are real treasure troves and with the online world coming closer by the day, they charge minimal delivery and transport charges. Try buying the same goods from your frequently-visited luxury websites, and they will cost you a bomb. Local websites not only offer goods at reasonable prices but also ensure authenticity, uniqueness, and quality.
4. Get There First
The early bird catches the worm. This adage applies to fashion enthusiasts too. When an online sale is announced, get on the website on the first day itself, browse through categories, and if you find good deals, fill your cart with everything you need. The best stuff and the biggest discounts come early, and goods get sold at a fast pace. This is why you need to be there as soon as the frenzy begins.
Make sure, however, that you purchase the maximum stuff from your most preferred website. Check the deals on every website, but purchase from the site(s) that has goods that resonate with your sense of style. Being a fashionista-on-a-budget means being smart and savvy while being stylish. You don’t need to splurge on every website that announces a sale. Compare well and purchase better.
5. Shop Accessories and MakeUp Online
Wearing accessories and cosmetics are a big part of the style game. To truly slay, you should be adept at using both. The good news is that plenty of websites offer great deals on accessories and makeup. You can get them 20-30% cheaper online than at physical stores or pop-up shop prices.
It is suggested that you do your bags, bracelets, necklaces, scarves and earrings shopping online as you are bound to find a much wider range at truly great prices. Because online stores are totally in-sync with the reigning trends, they are definitely the go-to option for those who like being fashion-forward.
So there you go, a few quick tips on always being stylish on a budget and impressing one and all with your fashion prowess! Are you ready to dazzle yet?
