How to look good on a budget

Whenever you are fashion lover or you just don’t have time for that, you should always have few pieces of clothing that will make you look fabulous and also expensive with no effort and all that for a low price. You have to choose pieces of clothes that they are unique and define you and your character. Once before “must have” were black and white and that was all, but now that has changed in a very good way.
First of all, golden rule number one is shopping in second hand shops, charity or thrift shops. Going to this stores, you can find so many great items, which are endless pieces and for a very good deal. Also, you just have to make sure that they are good quality and make sure that they are in pretty good condition.
When you buy something no matter if it is shoes, bags or t shirts, never choose the color that is currently in fashion. The reason for that is the item you buy, it should last longer and those season pieces are just for a few months. For example, if you buy a t shirt or a jacket that they are on a neon color, imagine the next season how you will look like. For that, choose some neutral colors that will match perfectly in any combination that you have chosen. You will always look good, and you will reach for that expensive vibe we all want to achieve. Black is always a good choice and like we said, that is a “must have” color in your closet, but sometimes try to mix it or even better, try to replace it with some beige, pink or even blue color, it will make miracles for you. Try to play with the colors, prints and textures, with mixing and matching them and create something that will suit your personality very well. For example, you can wear a red jacket with blue pants and green t shirt. Try to keep the jewelry and accessories to a minimum. When you try to focus more on the clothes and colors and less on the accessories, it elevates every look. You can never go wrong with that.
When you buy clothes, you always have to remember that the fabric is the key of the whole outfit. You always have to look if the fabric is good, especially for ironing, because what is the point if you buy something and you can`t wear it because it took you too much time for ironing.
Also, last but not least, when you go shopping for shoes, buy them in a color that is not in trend, but be careful with their shape, which means not too pointy, not no narrow and the most important to be super comfortable. Usually, when something is in trend, we sacrifice ourselves for not comfortable items and spend too much money on them, and that leads us into total disaster. Instead, try with this kind of suggestions, and you will see it for yourself.
