“Fashions fade. Style is eternal.”Yves Saint Laurent
Saving money is hard. It’s a fact. We all know it. Saving money can be especially difficult if you a weakness like myself and so many others: shopping. I have put together some of my tips to save money but still looking good.
One of my favorite types of fashion is fast fashion. Fast fashion is your stores such as Princess Polly, Pretty Little Thing, and FashionNova. Stores like these sell trendy pieces as well a few staple pieces that can be worn every day. Their prices are great so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank over a top or a pair of shoes that you won’t be able to wear next season.
Shopping at consignment stores is a great way to get designer goods for less. Sites such as The Real Real, Net-a-Porter, and 1st Dibs are great for when you’ve had an eye on those Golden Goose sneakers for a few months but can’t justify spending $500 on a pair of sneakers.
Forget everything you’ve heard about knock-off hand bags. Amazon, eBay, and Purse Valley are great places to visit when you’re dreaming of Dior but still can’t convince yourself, or simply can’t afford, to swipe the card on designer goods.
Personally, this is a task I simply do not think I could accomplish. A capsule wardrobe is comprised of one nice dress, two tops, four bottoms, a few pairs of shoes, and the necessary accessories. All of your pieces will go together, making it one hundred times easier to create different outfits.
Buy Neutral Colors
By purchasing neutral colors, you allow yourself to have pieces that are timeless and will never go out of style. Sure, neon is in right now. But will you really wear that neon green sweater next fall?
Black on Black
Boujee on a budget or not, black on black is always a good idea. By wearing your black staples, you can instantly create a chic outfit that can be worn time and time again. Throw on a black bodysuit with some black ripped jeans and your favorite black booties and I promise you will immediately look and feel like the girl boss you are!
