As much as we all want to have the hottest new pair of shoes, the cutest new dress or the incredibly stylish jeans, it’s not always possible. Money is a rare commodity in a lot of families, whether you’re a parent, a college or University student or simply trying to make ends meet while working. Well, you’ll be happy to know that just because you’re on a budget it does not mean that you can’t afford a high end, super hot wardrobe – it just means you’ll have to look a little harder. Luckily, I’m here to help.

There are many ways to spend you’re money wisely, here are just a few:

Vintage and Second-Hand Stores – Some people cringe when they hear the words vintage, second-hand or used clothing. It’s really not as bad as it sounds. Most second-hand clothing is barely used and many places won’t even take the clothing unless they are in mint condition. It’s going to take you a little longer to look through all the designs – and some of them may not be a high end label like Burberry – but once you find one, you’ve hit the jackpot. Vintage clothing is extremely popular in Hollywood as well. Many of the hottest celebrities who can afford to spend thousands of dollars on their wardrobes choose to buy vintage instead.

Buy a Few Pieces and Maximize on them – One piece of design clothing isn’t going to break the bank. So if you choose one that you really like (preferably a jacket, sweater or something that can be mixed with a number of other pieces) you will be able to maximize on the one piece by wearing it with a number of other outfits. Likewise, articles of clothing like scarves and sweaters will be even more effective when it comes to mixing and matching because they can be used more often and paired with more outfits than say a pair of jeans or shoes.

Look For Deals – Smart Shopping is the best way to save money. Looking for deals may be a little more time consuming than just whipping into a store and purchasing the first amazing piece that you see but, in the end, it’s definitely worth it. The best time to look for deals is either at the end of a season or when a store/company is relocating or closing. Generally, seasonal sales are the best way to save money on designer clothing, so make sure you keep an eye out at the end of each season.

Saving money on your designer wardrobe really comes down to smart shopping. If you can’t afford a $400 dollar shirt then don’t buy it. Wait until you find a deal that fits into your budget and you’ll be much happier in the long run.
