Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty cheap when it comes to my wardrobe.
Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, and looking nice, and (most of the time) shopping. BUT, I like to get value for money. I would rather a number of cheaper items than one designer piece. I perfectly understand and agree with the logic of fashmatics, but as a uni student who works thirteen hours a fortnight, I still like to get as much stuff for as little as possible.
“That’s all well and good,” I hear you say. “But, Ally, why are you telling me about how you don’t spend money on clothes?”
Because!, dear reader, being thrifty means you’ve got to be a little more imaginative when it comes to the clothes you already have.
Here are examples of two pieces from my very own wardrobe which I wear in different ways.
Here is a dress and a cardigan. They are worn here, in the traditional style.
And then again in a not-so-traditional style.
Turning the cardigan back-t0-front gives you a second top, and tucking your dress under gives you a new skirt! Throw in a belt to keep it all together and BAM, new outfit with things you already had!
What handy thrifty wardrobe tips can you share?
