How to get your summer style for less

PUT DOWN THE PLASTIC | How to get summer style for less

Buy a few versatile outfits

When the weather is warm, people tend to spend more time out of the house. After all, there are parties to attend, picnics to enjoy, and summer walks to be had. So, it means you’ll be out more, and that brings your wardrobe into focus. The big issue is circulating your outfits so that you don’t wear the same clothes over and over again.

Thankfully, a few versatile pieces will come in handy to ensure you always look your best. There is a wide selection of women’s sundresses and jackets, not to mention t-shirts, which you can mix and match. That way, no one will question your fashion sense, and there’s no need to buy a ton of new clothes.

Shop around for the best deals

There is an odd saying which goes, ‘more is less’. Now, no doubt can this be true in certain circumstances. But, why would you settle for less when you can have more? Yep, it is possible to still buy an online basket full of items without spending more than your budget.

The trick is to shop around for the best deals. As long as you have the time and the patience, there are plenty of bargains just waiting for your approval. A tip: make a list of all the high street stores and visit their websites. You never know what you might find!

Try a stab at budget makeup

Clothes aren’t the only things that you can find for less online. Budget makeup also exists, and it’s a handy tool to have if you’re working on a budget. Adverts tell us that the best makeup is expensive, but that isn’t always the case. There are some outlets which have cheaper stuff that is just as good if you give it a try. Or, you can attempt to find the brand names for less. If you’re thrifty, you can even make your own at home.

Hit the gym on the regular

Most people think about changing their wardrobe, but they never think about changing their bodies. Of course, your body’s your own, so there is no need to alter it if you are happy. However, if you do want your clothes to fit better, the gym can help. When you lose weight, everything you own seems to be much nicer because of the way the fabric hangs on your frame.

Working out will also enhance your fitness, which will improve your body’s features. A healthy body, for example, means healthy and greater looking skin. (And who the hell doesn’t want that?!)
