Know Your Style
Defining your individual style is very important. Know what colors suit you and what kind of style should you adapt. Don’t spend money on wrong pieces. Just because its on trend, doesn’t mean you have to wear that. Find clothes that suit you and your body shape. The cloth should make you feel comfortable. So go for such clothes that make you feel good about yourself and you know that you will wear it often.
Spend your money smartly. Don’t shop for outfits, instead buy separate items like jeans, skirts, tops and pants that you can easily mix and match. Buy these separates in one or two basic colors. One of those colors should be your hair color. Buy your shoes and belt in your hair color. It looks very stylish. For a pop of color, buy shoes and belts in bright red, yellow, turquoise, green or blue, but make sure the colors go well with most of your wardrobe.
Keep an Eye Out for ‘Sales’

Go to your favorite’s stores’ website and sign up for their newsletter. And you will be notified about upcoming deals and sales via email.

Flea markets are another great options to buy trendy clothes at dirt cheap prices. When your clothes look cute and fashionable, it hardly matters where it’s coming from 🙂
Buy your favorite accessories, be it sunglasses, earrings, bracelets, necklace, scarves or handbags, at low cost shops and buy many. Accessorize, but don’t overdo it. The key is to wearing a great dress with a single ring, a pair of small earrings and a sleek necklace is fine. To jazz up a low-key outfit, pair it up with a funky watch or belt. For example : wear a fitted tee and jeans and a pair of cute flats. Wear one significant piece, like a beautiful necklace to make your neckline pop! And if your hair is done up, then wear a pair of beautiful earrings.
