Fashion calls for Splurging without Breaking the Bank!

For all true fashionistas, great style is something that can’t be compromised. But in today’s shaking economy, price can play a major factor when deciding what items we should spend our hard-earned cash on. There is no need to cut back, just choose wisely while you’re perusing trendy boutiques. You can still look like a million dollars and avoid committing a fashion faux pas by sticking to a budget. Just follow these simple tips and you will be on your way to looking fabulous for a fraction of the cost.

1. Purchase transitional items
Buy clothes that are multi-functional and can be worn season to season. For example, a cute tankini will add a splash of colour under a fitted jacket for winter, but can be worn alone in the hot summer months.

2. Splurge only on the good stuff
Invest in some classic pieces like a comfortable pair of jeans or quality made black shoes that can be worn over and over again.

3. Take your time and shop around
Due to the recent economic downturn, a lot of stores are having great sales, so head to your local mall or boutique and look around before you commit to buying at full-retail price.

4. Look for 3-for-1 promotions
Many of the larger stores carry a full line of clothes, accessories and even shoes. You may be able to add new pieces to your wardrobe from top to bottom.
