How To Give Your Wardrobe A Boost On A Budget
While you may want to give your wardrobe a makeover, we don’t always have the budget to buy a shelf full of new Armani jeans – however, that doesn’t mean you can’t give your outfits a refresh. Try these cost-effective buys and ideas for a new look for less.
To start off, you need to purge your wardrobe. Before you add anything new, you need to get rid of anything outdated or obviously not right for you. If these clothes are in good condition, why not sell them online – this could raise some extra funds for your new purchases.
Anything that’s already in your wardrobe needs to be well looked after – so buff dress shoes, clean up casual trainers and get to the dry-cleaners with coats, jeans and anything else which doesn’t hold up to normal washing.
Next up, make a list of some of the key purchases you need to cover with your budget. New jeans are a must for covering your bases – make sure you have at least a black and blue pair in your wardrobe.
Basic t-shirts also make up a good base for your wardrobe, so ensure you have your neutral basics covered.
If you’re looking to keep your wardrobe feeling luxurious, even on a budget, then consider what colours you choose for purchases. Even though luxury brands will have offerings in bright colours, choosing a refined palette of black, white, grey, olive green and navy blue, along with gold or silver jewellery and accessories, will look expensive even if you’ve bagged some bargains.
