How to Update Your Wardrobe on a Tight Budget

We have to spend lots of money or buy really cheap clothes. That is absolutely false. Check out these quick tips and tricks to help you freshen up your wardrobe for less.

Take an assessment of your existing wardrobe. Your wardrobe should have at least the following basic easy pieces: a little black dress, a white blouse, a neutral cardigan, a knee-length skirt, black dress pants, a pair of jeans, a solid color tee shirt, a solid color turtleneck, a jacket, a pair of heels, a pair of boots, a pair of dress flats, a pair of casual flats, and a basic handbag.

Stores are practically giving things away at the end of each season to make room for the next season’s goods. You can find out about these sales by joining a store’s mailing list. Typically, a store will start spring sales in March and have clearance in April. July is prime time for summer sales to start, running straight through August in clearance mode. Fall sales will start in September through October. Winter sales will start directly after Thanksgiving. Sales will continue through the holiday season and clearance starts the day after Christmas through January.

Some of these stores may have frequent shopper cards to aid you in your shopping.

You can also take your old clothes to the consignment shops and hopefully get money back to help you make updates to your existing wardrobe.

Another easy way to update your wardrobe is to use trendy accessories. Inexpensive, trend-right jewelry and shoes can totally enhance your look without breaking your budget. If you have to buy a pricey item, get your money’s worth by investing in a classic shape and color. This way you can get more than a season’s wear out of it.
