Working with a Limited Budget

The smartest way to make use of limited funds is to buy pieces that can be easily transitioned between seasons. Those cute dresses you wore in the summertime can be transitioned for cooler temperatures with cardigans, tights, and a nice pair of boots. Layer tanks tops and graphic tees under jumpers, blazers, and leather jackets to warm up your wardrobe, or pair them with one of this season’s must-have items—the plaid button-down shirt—for a look that exude ‘90s grunge.

Neutral pieces that work well with many hues—black, brown, navy, and white—should be the basis of your wardrobe. You can always add a pop of colour to your ensemble with a scarf, bag, or costume jewellery later on: these accessories tend to be much less expensive than blouses and trousers and can be easily updated to reflect the most current trends. That being said, don’t be afraid to invest in a few pieces that stand out from your everyday essentials. These can be worn on special occasions to take your style to the next level.
