It’s that time again. Time for a Spring wardrobe that will get you out of the winter blahs. You can’t wait to revamp your closet with all things new in fashion.
Before you start worrying about how much this will cost, check out these wardrobe saving tips. There’s even a tip below that won’t cost you a dime!
Multi-function, multi-matching and multi-layered clothing. You know, that reversible dress, those pumps that can be worn with jeans or dress pants, or that knit/spandex item that can be worn as a skirt, a mini dress, a halter or a headband.
Check out those awesome, versatile yoga pants that can also be worn to work from www.betabrand.com or interchangeable leggings and layers from companies such as www.marmot.com, www.lululemon.com, and www.nike.com.
Scottsdale has some of the best consignment stores where you can find a quality, trendy, and designer fashion for a lot less, including the popular resale shop www.mysisterscloset.com. Many of the bargains you can score still have price tags.
Yes, you can get brand new items for your Spring wardrobe at thrift store prices. Making the time to bargain hunt can save you $50 on a pair of Lululemon crops or $300 on a pair of Jimmy Choo heels.
If you know people who pay full price for authentic, genuine, name brand “stuff”, find out where they donate those items. Then scoop them up at a fraction of what they paid.
Yes, you can rent designer handbags online for a special occasion or rent formal wear for that one-time event at online purveyors like www.renttherunway and www.bagborroworsteal.com.
You can also rent ordinary items to add to your Spring wardrobe collection.
Join a subscription service.
Services like Stitch Fix or Trunk Club allow you to go online and choose new items to be sent directly to your home every month. All you pay is the subscription fee, unless you decide to keep the items your borrowed. You have the option to buy what you like or return them.
Subscription services for clothing are great because they provide options that are trendy but don’t take up space in your closet for long. They make your co-workers wonder how you can afford all the new looks. They even help you discover your unique style.
Score some major deals at the end of each season. For instance, buy bathing suits in August and coats in February, which are heavily discounted to make room for incoming seasonal inventory.
This goes for accessories too, like buying name brand gloves, scarves, and hats in the Spring.
Your home may need a new Spring wardrobe too. Buying throws, pillows, bedspreads, and sheets in the offseason can save you big bucks but keep your home looking trendy and stylish.
Don’t be afraid of a “slightly irregular”.
To the manufacturer, slightly irregular can mean it’s missing a button. To the buyer who can sew on a button, this means deep discounts on high-quality fashion. Even if you can’t sew, you can take it to the professionals who can, still saving you money.
If there is a smudge of lipstick on a shirt you love, you can likely get the price slashed at the store. The money saved can be spent getting the shirt professionally cleaned. Instead of passing on the slightly damaged or irregular, embrace them.
Keep Timeless Pieces Timeless.
You have favorites. We all do. The cashmere sweater, concert tee, or little black dress. If they are starting to look their age, don’t worry.
There are things you can do, for FREE, to keep them looking fresh.
Fold important items rather than hanging them on a hanger to avoid creasing. Wear a camisole under delicate blouses to protect from sweat stains and always follow the washing instructions. Do not attempt to wash dry cleaning items at home––you wouldn’t want to risk damaging, shrinking, or ruining any item.
Get Professional Help.
A professional cleaner can bring dying clothing back to life. Take advantage of the offers from professionals like Prestige Cleaners. They provide that extra care that keeps your clothes looking fresh. They even offer free minor repairs that include button replacement, hooks ‘n eyes, and fallen hems.
