Being on a Budget Does Not Mean That You Can’t Look Stylish

Living on a budget is a very sensible thing to do. It means that you can be sure that you are living within your means and not getting into debt. It also helps to ensure your financial security for the future. After years of spending what they like many fashionistas have been hit hard by the recession and are horrified at the thought of buying less clothes. For most women looking stylish and trendy is vitally important for their self confidence. But it is possible to live on a budget and look gorgeously stylish and in fact those that spend a lot of money on clothes can sometimes look far from stylish.

The secret to looking stylish on a budget is second hand clothes. Well it is not really a secret at all as more and more people are catching onto the style potential of second hand clothes. They are a lot cheaper than new clothes but you can find really good second hand clothes. They are often a lot better quality than something that you could buy new in a cheap high street fashion shop. I know what I would rather have, a well made piece of clothing made of a quality fabric that may well have been hardly worn and costs next too nothing. This beats a badly made piece of clothing in a cheap synthetic material, that does not fit or hang well and could possibly have been made in an unethical sweat shop.

The key to looking stylish in second hand clothes is to ignore the latest fashions and trends in favour of the styles of clothes that really suit you and make you look amazing. Of course you will often find when you buy second hand clothes that they fit in with the seasons trends anyway either because most trends run for a year or two anyway or there are many trends like nautical, sixties, seventies and floral prints that just keep coming back again and again.

When you shop for second hand clothes, it is important to have a good idea of what will suit you before you start. You can find out what are the best styles to suit your body shape by reading books and magazines but trying clothes on is always the best way to be sure. Also it is good to have an idea about what colours of clothes suit you. You can work this out by holding the colour next to your face to see whether it makes your complexion look glowing.

Once you have established what type of clothes make you look and feel great, you should think about what sort of clothes will suit your life style. Do you spend most of your life working in an office or looking after children. You should look for clothes that will be suitable and you will get a lot of wear out of.

Being stylish is not about how much money you spend. It is about how you feel and how you pick out the clothes that you wear. It is completely possible to look very stylish and live on a very tight budget, it just requires a little time and thought.
