Fall is right around the corner and now is the time to update your wardrobe! Seasons are changing and the days will grow cooler soon. Before you start shopping for new clothes, a summer-to-fall closest change over is necessary. Raid your closet and pack away all things summer. This also the perfect time to purge old clothes that have been collecting dust. If you a haven’t worn it in a year, get rid of it! Don’t try it on, don’t think twice, just toss it in a bag and drop it off at the nearest thrift store.
Now that you have space in your closet for new fabulous fall fashion, the next step is to create a shopping list. If you’re on a budget, this is the best way to stay on target and spend wisely. First list the must-have pieces that you will NEED, such as sweaters, scarves, leggings and boots. These are the items to focus on buying first. Then list items you want to splurge on, such as that irresistible leather skirt or those funky platform heels. If you’re behind on the latest trends get inspiration from your favorite blogs and magazines.
The hard work is out of the way, now it’s time to have fun and SHOP! Transitioning to the next season can be costly, but there are a few ways to cut corners and save money. You can find basics such as scarves, sweaters and denim in thrift stores for a fraction of the amount you would spend in an expensive department store. Also, when shopping in thrift stores you are more likely you find unique, one-of-kind pieces. Ross, TJ Max and Marshall’s are also great stores with massive discounts and the latest trends. Fall is all bout layers so rack up on pieces that are easy to mix and match to help you create multiple looks. Even though the temperature will be cooling down, you can still look HOT!
