It is believed that for a man to wear classy and stylish clothes he has to have a good paying job or business. Clothes, like any other things, don’t come cheap. While this may hold some level of truth, it’s not always the case. Sometimes you just need to know basic savvy tips to upgrade your wardrobe.
Buy clothes off-season.
Timing your clothing purchases is of great essence. Buying what is hot, trendy, and in demand will likely rip you off your finances. Therefore, you must plan your purchase depending on the season of the year when clothing prices have dropped. Certain types of clothes cost less when they are out of season. Buying a new Nordica ski jacket months before winter is a sure way to get it at an affordable price. The same goes for summer outfits.
Host a clothing swap party.
Sometimes you may find out that you have pieces such as a woolen sweater from years ago that you don’t like in your wardrobe. In that case, invite friends to a clothing swap party. This allows you to improve your wardrobe while bonding with your friends. Remember that what pleases you may not please your friend and vice versa. However, there is a good probability that you will get a new style of shirt from your friends’ pool at no cost.
Rent one-time suits.
There are clothes that you will only wear on one particular occasion, and you won’t need them again. Be practical and determine if there is really a need to spend a fortune buying what you won’t use in the near future. Renting suits is cheaper and much more convenient. Asking your friend to lend you a suit for a night would be better than spending hundreds of dollars for something you’ll only wear for a night.
Now that you have an idea of how to appropriately dress on the cheap, swapping your wardrobe shouldn’t be stressful. Do your homework right and try to mix up the latest trends, fashion, styles, and designs without much heartache.
