In my previous outfitpost I was telling you how easy it was to look great with less clothes and I got some nice compliments for that post. Reason for me to spend again some more time to show you some tricks how to look stunning with less. I collected all my shopping experience and wrote a "What To Do" list for you readers. I hope it will be useful. Enjoy.

 The main rule number one is.

 
01 KNOW WHAT YOU BUY:
Of-course it's nice to buy as many as you like in cheap stores (I do it myself sometimes) but saving up money and buy the real musthaves is the better work. I do not say you have to buy expensive clothes all the time but I remember how happy I was when I finally were able to buy my YSL Leopard sneakers after saving up some money. Everyone knows that musthaves makes your outfit complete. See those kind of buys as an investment cause nine out of ten it lasts much longer. To be honest with you I rather prefer one Designer item than ten crappy-made items but that doesn't mean it has to be expensive. Luxury don't have to be expensive.

 
02 COPY CAT THE BRANDS:
When I go to Fashion week or when I am surfing on the webs I see amazing clothes. Unfortunately my wallet is not always allowing me to buy those things so, what to do?
Well, shops like Zara or H&M are the key to Copy Cat the styles of the shows you like. Usually a collection is about a concept, when you got the concept you can create the same style in your own way and look much cooler. For example my studded bracelet on my picture. I bought it very cheap at a vintage store. It kinda reminds me of the Hermes Bracelet, No ??


03 SALE SALE SALE Oh how I love sale and I think many of us do. Ofcourse I did not paid the full amount for my YSL Leopard shoes. I patiently waited until the shop had "50% discount" written on their window. Lucky as I was I ran inside, grabbed my shoes, paid with my saved up money and Viola, there they were, my beauties !! Besides that I was able to buy lots more crazy stuff like my Dolce & Gabbana shades thanks to "sale" and the "saving up rule" !! Killed two birds with one stone.


04 DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) Next to buying things you can clean out your closet. By cleaning out your closet you will find things you will never wear again. Most people will throw it away but wait.. Why not customize it ?! It makes your style rare and hard to copy. People will ask you where you are buying your stuff and in times like these I think it's really important to stand out from the crowd, be creative with your style and play with it. Be different. Cutting off the sleeves of a blazer can make the difference and no money attached !!

I'm wondering if you readers have some more tips about the issue "How To look Fashion for less"  issue. Tell me..


DOLCE AND GABBANA / Gold Pilot Shades
COLD METHOD / Gray Pull-Over
ACNE STUDIO / Faux Leather Pants
YVES SAINT LAURENT / Cavalino Leopard Sneakers
VINTAGE / Studded Bracelet

Beauty Follower zei

Great sneakers!

Sharon zei

Superleuk stukje!

Ik moet mijzelf aanleren om echt wat meer te sparen, zodat ik wat betere kwaliteit kleding kan kopen.
Ik koop toch wel vaak mijn kleding bij de H&M of Zara...

En ik ben echt een fan van DIY!
Ik houd ervan om mijn eigen ding te maken en te dragen.
Ookal kan je ze soms kant-en-klaar in de winkel kopen, ik vind het zeker de moeite waard om er even wat tijd in te steken.

I know it. I have heels in leo look, but unfortunately I think for far too rarely reuse. And if I had sneakers with the print, that would be too conspicuous :D
Follow each other? Would be glad! Love,

Cool look & good advises!

Nog als reactie wat jij hebt achtergelaten:

Het lag denk ik ook aan mijn loon.
Ik zat gewoon nog op school en werkte dinsdagavond en zaterdag in een Supermarkt, daar verdien je nou niet echt genoeg mee om in goede, dure items te investeren :p

Nu ik een tussenjaartje heb en gewoon ga werken zal ik zeker (proberen) wat meer te sparen voor mooie stukken.
Zoals de ASH Titan boots die ik al heel lang wil!
