June 24, 2015:Â Who doesn’t want to look good? But the barrier line for most is the budget; to look fashionable.
However, fashion is not always expensive. With a little bit of looking around and help, you can get a cheap yet fabulous wardrobe.
Donâ€™t fall for brand:Â Brands are self-stating, but brands are expensive. So to start with, donâ€™t fall for branded clothes. Start being reasonable and save cash.
Learn to sew:Â Sewing; it is one of the most useful things one can ever learn. So if you have a basket full of discarded clothes with pulled out stitches, fix them yourself. Here’s a small and creative idea that you can apply. Pick up contrasting coloured threads to sew the hemlines. Contrast is never out of season.
Use shawls as scarfs:Â Once they fade, shawls find their way straight to the trash. But this item of clothing can be more useful. Old shawls can be used as scarves and team them with tees and denims. They instantly add a spark to dull coloured tees.
Keep your eyes and ears open for sales:Â Annual or seasonal sales are the best time to transform your wardrobe. Off-season sales help you to stock up. All you need to do here is a little seeker for the room of sales.
Add loads of jewellery:Â Hit the flea markets and pick up inexpensive jewellery. They could be anything from bangles to anklets. The best part about them is you can use them with western as well as ethnic wear.
Redesign your worn-out tees:Â If there is a stack of old tees that you are about to use for floor mopping, drop the idea. Take a pair of scissors and get down for something new. You can cut a few of them from the bottom and make new crop tops.
Whites are never off:Â White is not boring and it does suits everybody. And you must have a white shirt because the classic combination of a white shirt and blue denims never goes out of fashion.
Online shopping:Â Some websites offer as big a discount. So seek out on your social networking profile for such discounts and even get out for window shopping online one day. But be sure of your size.
Your trash is someone’s gold:Â It is not always unfortunate to have friends who are as broke as you. There must be some items of clothing in your wardrobe that you might dislike, but someone else might like and vice-versa. Who knows, your friend might have that one for you.
