3 Tips For Looking Fashionable On A Budget

by Elizabeth Morgan 2 min read

With prices rising every day, it can be hard to find affordable clothes that you love. But looking great does not have to cost you! We will be sharing with you three great tips on how to look fashionable for a fraction of the price.

Ways to get amazing fashion at amazing prices

1. Thrift stores

Want to bag a bargain? Then head down to your local thrift store! With vintage and retro items, as well as some designer finds, thrift stores will help update your wardrobe, without your bank account having to pay the price! Thrift stores are especially ideal if you like a retro-style aesthetic, or if you are simply trying to relive your youth – you will definitely be able to find some key 80s and 90s items waiting for you to try!

Thrift stores are a great place to find some rare, discontinued designer pieces, so make sure you keep an eye out for them. Thrift stores are also a great way to contribute to saving the planet, as the clothes are pre-loved, and no machines or factories are needed for their production.

2. Online shopping

With more and more people shopping online, why limit yourself to the shops you already know? With companies such as ASOS offering their own bespoke clothing, whilst also offering a marketplace for vintage items, there is a whole new wardrobe awaiting you.

70% of clothes sold on the ASOS Marketplace are now pre-owned – all you need to do is get online and start browsing. Don't feel limited to online stores though. With websites such as eBay and Depop making waves, they are a great place to pick up a bargain, and many of the items on there may be discontinued.

Good vibes only


With sales becoming a regular occurrence, why bother splashing out full price? Simply wait a few months and grab the top you've been dreaming of for a fraction of the price! From dresses to shoes, sales are a great time to revamp your wardrobe, without having to feel guilty for treating yourself.

No matter the time of year, a sale will either be in full swing, or a sale will be close to approaching. Sales are also a great time to step out of your comfort zone and try something new! Seen a dress you've been in love with, but don't think it is your style? Pick it up during the sale and try it out. If it doesn't work for you, it can be donated to charity and brighten someone else's life.
