Funding Your Fashion: Clothes Shopping Tips & Tricks

When it comes to looking and feeling good, a lot of it can come down to what you wear and how you wear it. If you feel uncomfortable with the clothes you’re wearing, then it shows. When you feel good in what you’re wearing, your posture will be better, and your confidence and sass will just ooze out. So having the clothing that you like to wear and feel good in is a must, right? Of course, your confidence needs to come from within. But when you have the clothes to go with it, you can just slay!

Here are some of the ways you could get the dream wardrobe that you’ve always wanted so that you can look good and feel good. Shopping, anyone?

Thrift Stores

A lot has got to be said about looking in thrift stores for clothes, and not just because Macklemore tells us about it. You can find some really good pieces in there, especially if you like to wear clothes that have a bit of a retro or vintage vibe to them. The good news is that the prices are nearly always what you can afford, so why not give them a try? It can be fun looking around them too, as there are some really unique choices.

Store Credit

Some stores will offer a store card that you can use to get greater discounts on their products. Usually, for signing up, you will be able to get a discount on your purchase, as it is an incentive for signing up. The important point to remember is that you should only be spending on it what you can afford, and if there isn’t an incentive for using the store card that day, then use cash or a debit card. There is no need to get into debt for clothes, but if you can get money off and can afford it, then why not?


Bonus Credit Cards

If you have a credit card that offers you an incentive for spending on it, then like above, as long as you can afford to spend on it, then it can be a good way to get the items you need, as well as get some air miles or other incentives. If you’re going to shop using a credit card then it is a good idea to look for one of the 0 apr credit cards so that you won’t be charged any interest. Just make sure it is all paid off before the zero percent interest time is over.

Look For Cheaper Versions

If you have a taste for the finer things in life, then that can be all well and good, though it will take a toll on your bank balance. So think about what you can be doing to spend a little less. The chain stores out there can have such good deals on really good look-alike pieces, that they could be worth getting instead of the designer pieces. It does pay to shop around.

How are you planning to get your spring and summer wardrobe equipped over the next few months?
