New clothes are a necessity. Every now and again, our clothes will wear out and we need to replace them; that, or they just don’t fit us anymore (I find this happens more frequently when I’ve been indulging in cake, no idea if these two things are related though…) However, clothes can be expensive these days so getting yourself some new togs can be pricey, but I’ve put together this little guide for saving a fortune on clothes!
Create a Capsule Wardrobe
By creating a capsule wardrobe, you’ll eliminate the need to buy too many new things. Your capsule wardrobe should all intertwine, so you can create lots of different outfits. You can do this by picking similar colour schemes and bearing what you usually like to wear in mind while buying. If you don’t have a capsule wardrobe, you’ll always have the mindset of having nothing to wear and feeling stuck when you go shopping. At least this way you can create a variety of outfits and you’ll always know what to look for when buying. You’ll hardly need to buy anything new at all once you have the basics!
Look for Voucher Codes Before You Buy
Looking for voucher codes before you buy is a great way to save a fortune when buying something new. You can nearly always find a voucher code if you look properly, and it should only take you 5 minutes. You could end up saving £30 or more with the right voucher code!
Buying vintage clothes is a great idea as they never, ever go out of fashion. You can keep and wear them for years, and nobody will bat an eyelid. Not only that, you can sell them on without losing money on it providing it’s in good condition!
Customize Old Clothes
Rather than buying new clothes, why not customise your old clothes? You can make them totally different by making trendy holes, cutting the sleeves off, and even dying them. They’ll look brand new and you won’t have done much to them at all!
Look in Second Hand Shops
Second hand shops can be amazing for finding bargain clothes. Many of them hardly worn or brand new! If you’d rather do this online, you have eBay and Depop. You can usually find exactly what you’re looking for, for a fraction of the price this way.
Rather than buy something outright, why not rent it instead? You’ll only pay a small amount, and all you need to do is make sure you keep the item in good condition before sending back. Lots of sites offer this now, and you can wear a dress you never would have been able to afford otherwise!

I use them all the time, and it’s so satisfying when I really get my wear out of a bargain item, or better yet, rent something and don’t end up lumbered with something I won’t wear again. Leave your own tips for me below – I’d love to hear them!
