How to Find Bargain Fashion & Skip the Junk

Everyone wants to look great! There’s really no doubt about that. But when you’re operating on a tight budget, you’ll need a lot of creativity and keen skill to find the best pieces at a bargain. That is why it is important to learn the ways of how to find bargain fashion & skip the junk.

The good news is that the options available for the fashion conscious is unlimited. There are so many places you can find the best bargains when it comes to fashion items. The only thing that you need to make sure you do is to focus.

The key to finding the best fashion bargain is to do your homework before you even start shopping. Here is just how you can do it.

 

Go through your wardrobe and have a clear definition of your style

Most times when you go shopping you go there with no clue as to what you are looking for. In the end, you buy things that neither fit you, nor appeal to your style. The worst of it all is that you spend a lot of money on a piece or an accessory that you’d probably never wear.

The best way to go bargain shopping  is to go through your wardrobe before you even think of going shopping. Take a mental note of what exactly you need and the true definition of your style. This will give you a clear definition of what exactly you are meant to look for when you go shopping.

 

Bargain fashion shop during off-season

Like I mentioned in the How to Look Stylish on a Tight Budget post, shopping during off-season is the way to go. Shopping during the off-season gives you a variety of choices to make. The only thing is that you’d probably have to wait for the coming season to actually wear the clothes. That means that you need to make sure you plan ahead before you do your shopping during the off-season, but it is definitely worth it. Shopping during the off-season opens you to quality clothing at discounted rates. You end up buy high quality clothing at a really low price.

 

Scout for coupon codes

Yes, there are coupons codes for quality and stylish clothing. These coupons give you the clothes at a discounted rate, saving you a lot of money, so they are worth looking into.

 

 

 

Find out when your favourite store will stock new merchandise

This will require that you go undercover, well kind of. Clothes stores stock regularly at certain times during the month. If you want to get bargain fashion, then you need to keep up-to-date with when they actually get new merchandise. When the store gets new merchandise, the old stock gets pushed to the back of the store and their prices drop considerably. This gives you access to quality, yet cheaper clothing.

 

Check out clearance stores for bargain fashion

Contrary to what some people think, you can actually find a lot of stylish clothing items from clearance stores. You may even get a chance to see a couple of designer outfits. The best part of it all is that they come at affordable prices, making you look stylish on a budget.

OOTD: Lace in Peplum

Thank God the weekend is here at last, and I can show off this outfit of the day aka ootd: lace in peplum. This week has been so hard. I am extremely happy today is Saturday and I get to put my feet up. You have no idea how excited I am. It has been an extremely busy week with me juggling my life, blog and my freelance jobs. I am thankful to be this busy but I think I need to schedule in some proper ‘me’ time so I don’t breakdown, lol.

The thing about working for yourself is if you do not know where to draw the line, you will be working every minute you are awake, and I mean serious working – the fastest way to collapse….

I have decided to start taking my wellbeing a little more seriously, for the sake of my health and my career. I am not useful to anyone if I fall ill so easy does it going forward. I am going to relax a little and find some time to unwind without any gadget around me, like a holiday digital detox. So no laptops, phones, tablets or camera. I may schedule that for this weekend at some point, so don’t be too surprised if no new post is uploaded until Monday.

Enough of me moaning, back to the fun stuff now, I wore this outfit some days ago. The sandals and top are new wardrobe additions, and I adore them both.

The pink crochet lace peplum top is an excellent fit. I love the lace design and the pink colour is fab. It is a chic piece. I love the fact that I can style it in various ways.

The khaki tie-up suede block heel sandals is also fabulous. I love the tie-up design and the gold accent heel, which is a perfect height for me. The khaki colour is also pretty and new colour in my wardrobe. I can see myself rocking these two for many years to come.

5 Style Tips for Women

OOTD Cape Dress

Sense of style is a personal thing, and it takes ages to develop a true personal style. Some of us are born with a flair for fashion and style, some of us develop it as we go along, but one thing is for sure, our sense of style evolves as we age. Most of the outfits I thought were stylish 5 years ago, I won’t be caught wearing them today.

Our sense of style projects a message, a message that is received as soon as we step into a room, even before we open our mouth. So it is very important to make sure your appearance is speaking the language you want it to speak, and sending the right message.

Here are 5 style tips you could implement today:

 

Pay Attention to your Self-esteem

Before we talk about fashion and style tips, we need to talk about the most important tip of all. Your self-esteem is very crucial to how you see yourself. If you don’t feel good, you won’t believe you look good, no matter how good you look. Working on your confidence is the first step to building your personal style. You have to feel like a million bucks to look like a million bucks, and convince others that you are a million bucks. If you don’t love yourself, no one will.

Pay Attention to your Undergarments

Your underwear sets the foundation for your outfit, so for your outfit to look great, the foundation has to be solid. I know many women neglect their bras and underpants because no one sees them when they are out and about, and they are so wrong. If you are wearing a full pant underneath a bodycon dress for example,  I will see it, just like if you are wearing the wrong bra size, people can tell from the outside. Get rid of the bras that don’t fit and go shopping for new ones. Your style will thank you for it.

Start paying attention to your underwear, they have the power to take your outfit to a whole new level. For bras, I love to shop Victoria’s Secret and Ultimo. I have tried many and I think these brands have the best bras in the market. For pants, I like to shop Debenhams and M&S, they have the best sets of panties, and super affordable, compared to others.

 

Less is More

Less is truly more. When it comes to colours, prints, patterns, makeup and accessories, I like to keep them as simple as possible. I try not to have too many colours on at the same time, I stick to one ‘busy’ print, pattern or accessory. I also try to stick to the makeup rule of emphasizing the eyes or the lips, but never both, and these tips work.

Less is more when it comes to style, but then again, whatever rocks your boat!

 

Invest in Statement Pieces/Accessories

Now this is a tip I need to follow a lot more this year. I need to invest in more statement pieces and accessories, especially jewellery, bags and shoes, because I believe they are good investment, and are classic and timeless. Building a personal style is really not a day’s job, but I wish it was, I would have my entire wardrobe stocked with everything I need.

 

Know your Body Shape

If there is any tip you follow here, make sure it is this, next to the self-esteem tip of course, I think they are the most important. To dress your body shape stylishly, you need to know what your body shape is. I covered female body shapes extensively on this blog some months ago, so you really have no excuse, if you still don’t know your body shape. Catch up if you missed the series.

 

So there you have them, my 5 style tips for women.
