Here’s the big question everyone wants an answer too: how do I stay fashionable without spending tons of money? Well here are a few ideas that might help you save a little. Start off by going through your closet and removing the items you don’t ever wear (believe me if you haven’t worn it in a couple months, you probably won’t at all) and try donating them, or bringing them to places like Plato’s Closet for a couple extra bucks. Once you have done that figure out what you need and what you like. If you go into a store with no idea, you are going to end up spending money on unnecessary items that you very well may never put on again. Always bring someone with you, don’t go in it alone. When you’re alone you have no other opinions, and even though your opinion is what matters most, it can help to have a little input from the peanut gallery at times.
Then, last but not least, where can you go to get the best deals. I find myself more often than not at stores such as Forever 21 and H&M; I find that they have everything I’m looking for and their prices are never outrageous. On the other hand, they aren’t always the best quality. If you are looking for clothes that cost a little more, but in the long run will last a lifetime, try stores like Kohl’s, Macy’s or American Eagle. If you dig a little, you’re sure to find something that fits your style perfectly, that will end up being worth whatever you spent on it. If you LOVE it, buy it.
