This new year, resolve to spend less money for fashion and style. One can easily build a great designer wardrobe full of key fashion pieces like a black dress, a great pair of jeans, fabulous black pumps and a structured white shirt. Out with the old regimen of spending a ton of hard-earned cash to buy designer items. In with smart shopping for the savvy fashionista.
With online hubs such as Gilt, Gilt fuse, Ideeli and Haute Look, one can get high quality designer items at up to 90% off retail prices. Not everyone can afford designer fashions, and a great tip is to mix and match price points. The key to looking fabulous for less is knowing what to buy at affordable stores and what to spend a lot of money on. A well-made Calvin Klein wool suit, for example, that fits great will cost a fashionable penny, but it will last a long time, giving you more style for your money. Pair it with some great eye-catching jewels from an affordable store like Forever 21 and you’re good to go.
One should try investing and perhaps spending a little more on classic wardrobe pieces and jewelry that transcend trends and seasons. Mix these pieces with inexpensive, trendy items that can at withstand at least one or two washes. Building a wardrobe with cheap, ill-constructed pieces is akin to building a house on a rocky foundation. It’s cute, it’s trendy and it’s stylish, but it will break, tear or fray after two washes.
Not everyone has the cash to spend on a $200 pair of jeans, but paying $24 for that same pair of jeans may not seem so far-fetched. Shop smart with discount deals from online shopping arenas that offer quality, designer styles at steep discounts.
