On a budget but still want to look stylish?
Many say looking good on no money is impossible. But real style is not about how much money you spend, so get creative and stop shopping for the same things over and over again.
How many pairs of black trousers does one woman need?
We live in a world where fashion is now so cheap and disposable it leaves us all looking exactly the same in poor quality, ill fitting clothes not to mention the fact children are being used for slave labour to give us our already too cheap fashion fix. If you care anything about people having the right to fair wages or the planet; vintage, eco, recycled and second hand is the way to go and will not cost the earth, literally.
Style is unique, fashion is for sheep. First step styling, a black base layer. Lots of us wear just black, it's safer and slimming but try jazzing it up with a little red hat or gold clutch bag, both can be found in a charity shop.
Just one unique piece will help you stand out from the crowd and it is better all round to spend £12 on something designer, second hand that will likely last a lifetime than something the whole world will be wearing made by a child. Think about it. Stepping out of your styling comfort zone is way less risky when you don't invest a whole load of cash and charity shopping, even if you over consume or make mistakes in the beginning, you are helping big style and can always give stuff back, worst case scenario.
Practise your style and help stop textile waste going to landfill by finding your fashion confidence and losing your status anxiety.
Style should never cost the earth.
