The weather is gradually warming up and the trees and flowers are starting to bloom. As the sun is starting to shine brighter you just want to put away those heavy sweaters and boots and bring your spring fashion forward. However, if you are budget conscious and looking to manage credit card debt, you know that it is not always possible to afford an entirely new spring ensemble. So here are some tricks and tips to build your spring wardrobe on a budget.
Tips for Creating Your Spring Wardrobe on a Budget
Start with what you have. Building a closet on a budget always starts with taking stock of what you already have. Pick out the possible layering pieces such as tank tops, scarves, light jackets, etc. Don’t leave anything out in the process. Take stock of your jeans, shoes, and accessories too! These clothing items are applicable in any seasonal wardrobe. Sorting out your closet this way can help you decide what exactly you need to purchase, and what can be donated or sold to make some extra cash.
Invest in basic colored pieces. Every closet must have the basic colored items such as a black/nude pair of shoes, cardigans, jeans, khakis, etc. It is easier to pair these items with anything that is already in your closet. It is ok to invest in one or two spring shaded cardigans to layer your outfit with other basic pieces such as a pair of jeans and a tank top.
Accessories can add flair to your outfits. This way you can stick with basic colors for your clothes and add the touch of spring colors with colorful accessories which you can find for much cheaper than buying newer clothing.
Start with shopping bargains. Make sure you check out the sale section first for the hidden gems. Walk to the back of the store first and work your way forward. You will still find great items but you will also save money because you will find the less expensive items there too. Also consider shopping at thrift stores, consignment stores, or garage sales for things you need to jazz up your spring wardrobe on a budget.
