Unless you’re blessed with the bank balance of a Kardashian, you’re probably always on the look out for a clothing or fashion bargain. Saving cash on your daily style is a must do in this day and age, and whilst it’s not always possible to source out Gucci for High Street prices, it is sometimes possible to find alternatives which are almost as good (or at least very close), for a fraction of the price.
We all want to look our best, so if you want to copy your favourite star’s style, how can you do it with a much less well-endowed bank account?
Charity Shops Are Your Friend
Charity shops are full of top finds, especially when people clear out their wardrobes and donate what they don’t want. That means great bargains for you, perhaps on items that are very close to the catwalk looks you’ve been eying up!
Vintage Isn’t Always Pricey
When you hear the word ‘vintage’, you probably instantly think about high price tags. This isn’t always the case, and again, charity shops are great places to spot vintage finds. Not everyone appreciates vintage clothing, and could simply throw it out, leaving you to pick it up for a bargain steal!
Fashion and style isn’t about conforming to rules, it’s about self-expression. So, how about making your own clothing? Find a picture you like, buy the material, and learn how to use a sewing machine! Before you know it, you could be your own clothing designer!
High Street Alternatives
Most big named High Street stores know that people want to copy the looks of their favourite celebrity, and in that case you can usually find many similar looks on the High Street. It might not be identical to the jacket or top you saw your favourite catwalk model wearing, but it’s not far off!
Be EBay Savvy
Just like the charity shop example, e-Bay is a veritable banquet for cut-priced clothing bargains! Spend some time perusing, and do a few bids. Don’t get too over zealous; you don’t want to spend more than you can afford! It’s entirely possible to grab some great pieces for a much lower price tag.
These are just a few ways you can be fashion savvy and copy your favourite celebrity, without having to sell your soul to get the same look! Shop around, be a little creative, and don’t be afraid to dig around in charity shops and online auction sites – you never know what you might find!
