You don’t have to blow your entire salary or life savings just to achieve stellar style.
After all, what’s the point of looking good if you’re broke? Being a smart spender can go hand in hand with being a smart dresser. Allow us here at Piggy to help you unleash your chicest self on a budget.
Check out our tips below:
Have a shopping schedule.
Yes, we know a lot of you go shopping to feel better, but it would help to schedule shopping time instead of going on sporadic spending sprees. This way, it’s more rewarding because it’s something you look forward to and would maximize knowing that’s all the time you’ll get for a particular period, say in a week. In effect, you’ll be wiser with your shopping decisions.
Set aside your feelings.
Again, we know just how much happiness shopping can bring, but when you’re too focused on the joy it can give you, there’s a tendency that you’ll keep on buying stuff thinking that the more you purchase, the happier you’ll be. Think carefully about why you’re buying that piece, if you really need it, and what else you can purchase for the same price (say, a gym membership that would be more beneficial in the long run).
Have a clothes swapping party with your girlfriends! You’ll hit three birds with one stone here: Get new clothes without shelling out a dime, de-clutter your closet, and make your friends happy by giving them a shot at those pieces of yours they’ve always wanted.
Have an OOTD photo diary.
You may or may not upload your “Outfit of the Day” diary online — perhaps keep a journal of polaroids or just save the images on your phone. By documenting your everyday looks, you’ll have a better idea how to mix and match the pieces you already own and what items you need to buy in order to level up your style — instead of just purchasing whatever catches your eye until you realize you now own too many clothes.
Look fab all day, every day by making smarter shopping decisions that would allow you to get more out of the pieces you already have and the pieces you want to buy. To get the best deals each and every time you go shopping sans any wallet worries, just turn to Piggy.
