How to buy cheap dresses online

The warmer months are on the way and it is time to start think of spring/summer outfits. I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months. The fact that I can show off my legs without tights is amazing after months of wearing layers. Dresses are super easy to style in the warmer months. I like to have quite a few dresses to wear on a daily basis when the weather allows me. Which is why I am always on the lookout for cheap dresses online. When it comes to most things, you do get what you buy for. So if you buy cheap, you get cheap. However, that isn’t necessarily the case when it comes to buying dresses. It is possible to buy cheap dresses online and get decent pairs for your little change.

I love buying quality items so I tend to spend more usually because I wear my pieces for years and years to come. But sometimes, I just want to shop for cheap dresses to wear in the summer. I also love shopping for cheap dresses for girls as well, for my little diva.

Here are some ways you could go about buying quality but cheap dresses online –

Shop the sales

This is the first way to go about shopping for anything online. It is always sensible to target the sales for items you have on your Wishlist. For cheap dresses, you can get loads online whilst the sales is on. Many high street stores have huge sales on and off all through the year. I buy many of my summer dresses online during the sales. It is great because I could save over 50% of the initial RRP. Shopping the sales is the first way to buy cheap dresses online.

 

Shop tried and tested brands

When shopping online, you should be very careful and shop only on websites you have successfully shopped on before. I avoid unknown brands online to avoid any surprises. Many of these new brands will send you pieces that look nothing like what they have photography on their website. So do be mindful of that while shopping online. Also, buying from tried and tested brands means you will buy the dresses in the right size as well. Many of us have different sizes from shop to shop. This is easily taking care of when you shop with brands you know already.

 

Go for pieces you can style in different ways

It makes to shop for dresses you can style in different ways. That way you get more wear out of them. I love items I am able to dress up and down. That way I can wear it on a casual day out and on a date as well. Buying dresses that can’t be styled in different ways or worn to various places means it is likely to get buried in your wardrobe for months.

If in doubt, read reviews

This is where consumers and fashion bloggers come in. If you are unsure of a particular dress or brand, always look out for reviews. That way, you get to read an unbiased (hopefully) review and can decided if you want the piece or not. A quick Google search with the dress and brand details will likely bring you up to speed.

How to be a fashion designer

Being a fashion designer is and always will be a dream for many. I remember wanting to be a fashion designer when I was a young girl. I dreamt about designing various fashion collections but I never got into it. The idea was fun but I didn’t have the right skills or passion needed to follow it through. So the fashion designer dream died a natural death. I know many fashion designers personally and I know how difficult it can be to stand out in the saturated industry. It is almost like blogging, you have to bring your creativity to the table, it has to be different from anything else out there, or the competition will bury your fashion designing dream quickly.

How to be a fashion designer

If you have your mind set on being a fashion designer, here are some tips I got from a few successful fashion designers, they may work for you –

 

Develop your creative skills

If you don’t have any, fashion designing may not be the right job for you. For you to become a successful fashion designer, you need to have a good eye for colour, shape and design. Some are naturally good at these things, while others may have to work a little harder to develop their skills. Going for a fashion course or apprenticeship may help you acquire the skills needed to excel in fashion designing.

 

Build your portfolio

The best way to learn is to keep practising. Building a portfolio while you work on developing your fashion designing skills is a great idea. As we all know, practice makes perfect, and developing your portfolio is one way of practising. It also allows you show prospective employers or clients what you are capable of creating.

 

Choose a niche

The best way to stand out in the saturated world of fashion designing is to choose a niche, especially in the early days. This allows you make a name for yourself in a niche. It is faster to grow when you choose a niche. You could play around with a few niches until you find your sweet spot! Some fashion designers choose to focus on womenswear only, others pick swimwear or menswear, the choice is yours.

 

Make the most of social media

Social media is one way to promote your creative designs so make the most of them. Instagram is a great platform to start on as it is very visual. You could set up a YouTube channel as well to promote your work even more. The sky is only the beginning.

Outfit Post: Are we fashion victims?

Hey Fashionandstylepolice Lovers! Who are fashion victims I hear you ask? A fashion victim is anyone who is at the mercy of fashion trends and who has no style boundaries. You are a fashion victim, if you buy everything you see on sale just because it is half price, regardless of whatever it would suit your body shape or complement your existing wardrobe. Many years ago, I thought  fashion victims were those men and women, working extremely long hours in factories, for very little wages. Now I know Fashion victims are everywhere and more and more people are victims of fashion and style.

I was once a victim of fashion, drowning in the fashion fads and struggling to keep up with every fashion trend. I am thankful that is no longer my story. Fashion trends are simply that. I shop for what suits my personal style and what I need, not what the fashion gurus tell me I need. The way I see it, fashion trends are for informative purposes only. They sometimes inspire me but they do not control me and it feels great to be able to shop for what I really want.

I got this lovely sparkly sweater some days ago. It is a new addition to my wardrobe and I am loving it. I love how easy it is to style it up or down. The blue jeans is also a new wardrobe addition to my jeans collection. I love the colour and it suits like a glove! A woman can never have too many pairs of jeans. It is one piece I am forever wearing, season after season.  Are you jeans lover?
