There is literally tons of advice out there about how to style our clothes, the different kind of styles and dress codes, and what’s hot and what’s not in current fashion; but when it comes to money-saving tips regarding clothing, there is little information available. So, here’s a post about how you can save money on your clothing…
Invest in classic pieces and limit splurging on the latest fashion. There are some trends like summer prints, winter whites and the like that will always be in fashion year after year, but there are other tends like culottes, skin-tight latex suits that are momentarily considered stylish and tossed out the next season. We’re not saying never invest in these new styles, but limit your purchases to a certain limit.
Another money-saving tip when you’re buying basics is to shop at the end of the season; for instance, you can get some really amazing discounts on sweaters, cardigans and woolen scarves at the end of winter than at the beginning – you can later use these pieces during the next winter!
Learn some basic sewing hacks; learning to fix the hemline of your skirt, pants or jeans, sewing in shirt and pant buttons etc., can save you big bucks in the long run as compared to running to your local tailor for simple alterations. If you can, learn basic tailoring in your spare time, and consider buying a used sewing machine from a yard sale or eBay – this can really come in handy for thrifty DIY projects and small adjustments.
Make a list of clothing you need for the season and be on the lookout for good sales and offers. Like this one for instance – a whopping 40% discount on your purchase when you shop using your Gap Card, Banana Card, Old Navy Card or Athleta Card.
