How to Dress Well on a Small Budget

1. Have lots of basic clothing pieces which are easy to mix and match with almost anything and are suitable for all seasons e.g neutral (black, white, grey) coloured tshirts, lots of jeans and trainers. To make this plain clothes a little more interesting pair them with bold prints and statement pieces of clothing. 

2. Charity shops are the best place to find cheap clothes and if you look hard enough you will always find some amazing buys. Although I've never found anything designer (cry) my friend bought a Calvin Klein coat for £20! Vintage shops are also amazing but can often be expensive; if you live in London Google East End Thrift Store. There you can buy clothes for £1 each or fill a bag for £10 or £20 depending on the size. Although the clothes do smell a bit after a few washes they're good as new ;p

3. If you're not into wearing previously owned clothes, then another way to save money to know when the sales are on. Online shops such as Asos will nearly always have sale section where you can buy your favourite brand's clothes for less. If you happen to live in a city there are nearly always sample sales going on. To find them I usually search them on twitter or Instagram. 

4. Diy is the most fun way to give your old clothes a makeover. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube or diy blogs such as P.S I Made It. Customizing your own clothes is a brilliant way to turn something you hate into your new favourite piece of clothing. 

5. I've never actually won a giveaway competition but I always enter because I might get lucky one day. Loads of blogs host giveaways on a regular basis but so do lots of clothing brands so follow your favourite shops on their social media sites to keep up to date with any competitions they may hold. 

6. One of the easiest ways to make a fairly dull outfit more interesting is to accessorize. When buying jewellery I like to invest in lots of statement necklaces, earrings and rings as it is a simple way to boost an outfit. 

Hopefully this helped some of you :)
Lots of love,
