Your Image is everything; your personality should reflect your image and fashion is all about bringing out your character. I firmly believe that you are what you wear and people tend to treat you base on your dress. Over time that evolves, but how can we keep up with evolution, looking good and feeling good without breaking the bank? Well, I for one do not shop a lot. I live frugally, and I do believe in looking good but saving money as well. Here are some tips on how to look good while being comfortable on a budget.

 

GREAT DEALS 

Shop for the best deals: I personally don’t shop at outlet malls, less, of course, it’s Black Friday, or they have an exclusive deal. Here is a list of stores that have great prices with stylish designs.

SIGNATURE PIECES MUST HAVES

Focus on items you need; this will avoid overspending on clothes you won’t wear and be able to mix and match outfits, thus producing many wearable styles. Here are some of the styles you must have for a budget friendly functional wardrobe. These items are easily paired. Having a blazer, you will be able to pair with a casual, professional, preppy or even sexy look.

Casual Tops

Heading to the park, out of town or even to the shopping. Having just a few casual tops, you can always switch up and wear with your jeans or skirts.

Must Have Skirts

Having a pencil skirt is perfect for church, work, meetings or dinner. The flared skirt can be worn casually and preppy. Sometimes we need skirts to switch up a bit.

The Ultimate Black Dress

Going out on a date, don’t know what to wear? How about a little black dress. Every woman should have a little black dress; it is so functional.

Stocking

Stockings are a perfect accessory for church (certain types) date, work or if you just want to look sexy. I like stockings because it allows me to wear my short dresses comfortably without worry about exposing anything. But it does gives a classy look that I like.

Sneakers

Heading to the mall, park or even if you just want to be casual sneakers are great if you want to dress down and be comfy. Sneakers can be worn with shorts, jeans, pants or even dresses. Make sure to know which goes with which. Not all sneakers fit perfect with certain attire.

Shoes 

I love ballets because I hate heels. I wear the to church, school, work, outings, dates etc. Ballets can be worn anywhere, it is so functional, classy and cute at the same time.

Pumps 

Pumps! If you’re able to manage these bad girls you can definitely pair them with your jeans, skirts or shorts. I wear pumps to work, meetings, and other functions. Depending on your personality, having these types of pumps with a neutral look you can’t run out of items to pair it with.

MAKEUP

How important is makeup? Makeup is not definite, but it does bring out a more professional and put together look. You don’t need a whole makeup kit to look nice. Simple foundation, lipstick, blush and mascara is just fine.

ACCESSORIES 

Handbags

Handbags tend to last longer than clothes you should splurge on a decent handbag rather than a cheap handbag that won’t last for 6 months due to its poor quality. Having at least 5 necessary bags in your closet will def do you well.

Sunglasses + Watch

Accessories such as sunglasses and watches give an added flare to your look. You don’t need to wear 1mil accessories to look good, sometimes simple is best.
