Filling your wardrobe with fashionable gear does not need to be an expensive affair. In fact, with a few well chosen pieces, you can make the most out of your teen clothes on budget… and still have a few more dollars to spend. Here are some tips on how to be hip, happy and well clothed despite having a tight purse.
1. Always choose clothes that are easy to mix and match with just about everything. Clothes like these can be dressed up, dressed down, accessorized or what-have-you, thereby providing you a completely new outfit each and every time. Try to have at least two pairs of jeans and several pieces of clothing in base colors (black, brown, gray and white.) These could be easily partnered with almost anything.
2. Go for classic designs rather than what’s hot at the moment. The one thing you have to remember about fads is that these come and go, and may become passé before you can blink an eye. The last thing you need is to be stuck with a wardrobe full of unwanted fashion. Classic cuts, colors and styles will help extend the wear of your teen clothes on budget.
3. Always, always save your receipts, in case the clothes you bought do not match the rest of your wardrobe. Sure, the fitting at the store might have looked great on you, but then you end up with just one look – and one that you are not even sure you like. It would be better to return the piece of clothing, rather than spend more money trying to match it with other pieces, or trying to make it look good on you. After all, despite these pieces being teen clothes on budget, you still need to make sure that you would be comfortable to wear the same pieces several times over.
