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!

 

 

5 Winter Shoe Styles Every Woman Should Own

It is common knowledge that if you have warm feet, then the chance of the rest of your body being warm is quite high. With that in mind, I thought I would put together a list of some winter essential shoe styles that you need to own this winter. Check them out below and tell me what you think of the styles.

 

  1. The Black Heeled Knee-High

The black heeled knee-high is back on trendy and I am loving it. It has only come back into style in the past few years, after years of it being a no-go. Knee-high boots, when paired with the right outfit, can look chic and classy and can also help keep your calves warm.

Black knee-high boots are the most versatile. They can be dressed down with a pair of jeans. And dressed up for a night on the town with a skirt or dress. The choice really is yours!

 

  1. The Classic Chelsea Boot

Chelsea Boots are a great boot style to invest in throughout autumn and winter. They can pretty much be combined with any outfit. Chelsea Boots most commonly come in black and brown, both of which look amazing with black and blue jeans, or even a skirt and tights.

They often come with a small heel to give you an added bit of height, but it is also small enough for you to get away with it in the office or on longer walks.

The above Black Chelsea boots are ideal to wear with both jeans or dresses and skirts, as they are plain and design-free, plus they’re the perfect height on the ankle.

 

  1. The Black Heeled Boot

Take any outfit from day-to-night by simply swapping out your flats for a classic black heeled boot. Teamed with a fitted pair of jeans, they make the ideal smart-casual outfit..

Not only does it give you a little more height and give off the illusion that your legs are slimmer, but it will certainly add some style and chicness to whatever outfit you’re wearing.

 

  1. A Dark Trainer

While the statement white trainers are great for the warmer months, you need to think about how they could potentially get ruined from the wet mud that may get splatted onto them in winter. While they look nice to start with, white trainers are quick to get dirty.

Dark coloured trainers, such as black and navy, are great for disguising little spots of mud. This is why they’re a great addition to a winter wardrobe. I have a few in my shoe collection and they come in handy.

 

  1. The Biker Boot

Biker boots have become increasingly popular in stores over the past year, most designed with long studs and buckles. While they’re probably not best paired with delicate skirts and dresses, due to their chunkiness, they certainly look great with a big, thick jumper and jeans.
