Summer is coming, despite what the constant rain storms might say. As coronavirus restrictions begin to be lifted, you might be overcome with the dire need to chuck your entire wardrobe and buy up your local shops! Summer is the time to show off your beautiful outfits in the sunshine, but unfortunately, shopping is an expensive hobby to take on. 

If you are searching for ways to save money on your outfits this summer, you have arrived at the right place. In this blog, we will explore how to save money on gorgeous outfits this summer!

Buy versatile pieces that can be worn different ways

Fashion is all about choices, so it’s understandable if you want an array of clothing options to choose from this summer. In an ideal world, we’d walk into our giant walk in wardrobes, picking a new dress for each day, without a care in the world!

In reality, though, most people have a limited budget for their summer outfits. For that reason, one way of saving money while still giving yourself options is by buying versatile pieces that can be worn in different ways.

What does this mean? Let’s take a look at an example. The new UK clothing brand Never Fully Dressed has got the right idea – they stock high quality pieces that can be reshaped into entirely new pieces, if you have the know-how!

Never Fully Dressed aren’t the only brand that sell versatile pieces – search for reworkable pieces for your summer wardrobe 2021!

Go second hand – even if you’re skeptical!

When most people want to buy a new piece of clothing, they immediately head to the webpage of their favourite brand. 

However, second hand clothing is coming back into style. This is largely due to the emergence of increasing climate consciousness and platforms such as Depop giving people access to second hand clothes. 

If you aren’t used to shopping for second hand clothes, you might have missed out on many incredible money saving moments! Why not head to eBay, Vinted, Depop or any other second hand clothing platform to see what you can find? You might find high quality clothes, shoes, bags and accessories that are in great condition and are under half the price of retail.

Got an event to go to? Hiring is your best option

If you are considering buying a brand new outfit for an event, such as a wedding, you might be alarmed at just how much you could be spending on a new dress, shoes and bag. 

One way that many people get around this is to Hire dresses. This is an increasingly popular way of wearing a fabulous, high quality outfit to an event, without having to splash out hundreds, or even thousands, on the piece. 

Hiring clothing is also a super sustainable option, making it an even wiser choice in today’s climate!

Final Thoughts

Looking fabulous every day doesn’t come cheap – but with these amazing strategies in place this summer, your bank account won’t hurt so badly!

 

 

Stylish Designer Summer Bags

*Collaborative post.

Spring is in full swing and summer is around the corner. It is almost time to get rid of the spring coats and embrace lighter pieces and stylish accessories. I am always excited to style summer pieces and accessories. The warm weather makes me want to shop my closet and fill up gaps. This year, I am really interested in stylish designer summer bags. I have my eye on a few designer bags already, and I am looking to get rid of some very old bags I have in my closet.

Stylish Designer Summer Bags

When it comes to designer bags, they cost a lot more than regular bags sold on the high street, so I like to shop around and ensure I am buying a designer bag that I would hold on to for many years. There are four things I look for in a designer bag –

Authenticity – I make sure they are original and not fake designer bags.

Colour – It has to in a pretty versatile shade that I can match it with other different pieces easily.

Good size – I like my bags to come in decent sizes so I can shove all sorts inside them, but I also like having some designer small bags for other occasions.

Affordability – Obviously I only go for bags and things in general that I can easily afford.

Here are some stylish bags I am looking at this summer:

Marc Jacobs Small Traveler Bag

This stunning bag by Marc Jacobs is such a beauty. I love the design a lot. The blue shadow colour is one of my favourites parts of the bag. I also love the size. I should be able to shove books, wallets and all sorts into this Marc Jacobs bag for a weekend away. It is also effortless chic and would be a nice addition to my bag collection. I can picture myself wearing this with a white t-shirt, a blue jeans and a pair of blue, white or black sandals.

This lovely bag also comes in black, red, slate green and beige. So there should be a colour for everyone. It currently retails at £180, which is budget friendly for a designer bag. Do you like this Marc Jacobs bag?

 

Marni Cellulose Shopping Bag

I love a good shopping bag and this gorgeous Marni Cellulose Shopping Bag ticks all my boxes. It comes in a lovely colour and handy size. I can shove all sorts inside it and it looks very stylish as well. It would be a great accessory for days at the library and when I am out and about shopping. I can see myself rocking this bag while wearing a nice blue pair of jeans, t-shirt and sandals. It would be a gorgeous look for sure.

This beautiful Shopping Bag by Marni also comes in black for those who prefer black handbags and it currently retails at £250. What do you think of it?

Chloe Daria Small Bag

I am a huge fan of the Chloe brand and this small bag right here is simply gorgeous. It comes in beautiful shade of sepia brown, and it also comes in a variety of shades from sweet beige to army green. I love the structured design and the many different compartments. It would look amazing with a dress on a night out.

If you like to spoil yourself, you can grab this beauty for £1, 331. What do you think?

These three stylish designer bags tick all my boxes and would be nice additions to my bag collection this summer. I love the different designs and each one of them would fill a gap in my bag collection.
