The smell of fall is in the air, and it won’t be long until people will be pulling out hoodies to wear to high school football games. If you’re on a budget and your fall wardrobe is in need of a revamp, you might be worried that you’re going to have to deal with last year’s outfits instead.
Never fear, here are five ways you can reboot your fall wardrobe, even when you’re on a budget.
First, Take Care of the Unmentionables
When it comes to revamping, the first thing you want to take care of is your undies. Everything from your panties to your smooth back bra are available in new styles and colors, and you can find them at inexpensive prices most times.
Don’t forget to add socks and stockings into your budget as well.
Take Stock of What You Already Own
Before heading to your favorite store, mall, or even online to do your fall shopping, take a second to take stock of what you already own. Dig into the furthest, darkest corner of your closet and pull out things you probably haven’t seen in a while. You’d be surprised at the cute outfits you’ll find or be able to piece together from the back of your closet.
Learn the Art of Layering
Fall layering not only keeps you warm and cozy, but it’s also a stylish way to dress, and not nearly as expensive as a whole new wardrobe. For example, throw an oversized full sweater over your favorite tank top, so that you can peel it off when the day warms up.
Fall days can be cool in the mornings and still a little hot in the afternoons, so layering is the perfect way to keep ahead of the changing temps and bring a little flair to your wardrobe at the same time.
Repair What Can Be Repaired
Just because those shoes are worn or there’s a rip in your favorite autumn dress doesn’t mean that you need to toss them and buy brand new. Instead, find a reputable tailor and breathe a new life into those old clothes.
They’ll seem like brand new and you won’t have to spend as much, making it a win-win no matter how you look at it.
Upgrade With Accessories
Upcycle what clothing you already own by using cute accessories that make them look new. Accessories have the ability to elevate your favorite fall outfits to another level in a simple, yet effective way.
Always Be on the Lookout for Deals
Never pay full price. There are plenty of deals out there to replenish your fall wardrobe, you just need to know where to look for them. Whether it’s online or in the stores, scour the internet and sales papers to help you get more for less.
After all, why would you pay full price for an outfit that you can get a day later at half-price or less at times?
Shop at Vintage and Thrift Stores
You’d be surprised at the deals you can find when you buy at the vintage shops and thrift stores in your area. It takes patience, time, and you need to have a good eye but often you can find high-quality garments at low prices. Many of these garments are designer items, and you’ll pay half of what you would for brand new.
These are just a few of the best tips out there for replenishing your fall wardrobe on a budget. Remember, your outfits don’t have to be brand new, there are plenty of options out there that will keep you warm and cozy for half the price.
