There are so many trends we want to follow this season alongside many designer labels we covet. We all have a favorite holiday look, but often times the reality of a small budget gets in the way of achieving some of those celebrity style looks.
Well, a girl can dream, right?
For the majority of us (especially us moms who are busy buying for the kids and everyone else on the list), it would be such a treat to also have the ability to pick up something for ourselves. We may be on a budget, but we also want to stay chic and trendy as we attend that holiday party this season!
Here are 3 secrets to staying chic on a budget this holiday:
1. Search and Use Those Coupon Codes: Many of your favorite brands will offer FREE SHIPPING on orders in addition to offering a sale. When you find that fabulous little black dress or the new boots you want to sport to the next holiday party, do some homework and find out where these items are offered at the cheapest price. Then, use a site such as RetailMeNot to get the latest coupon code. You'??ll probably be surprised at how much money you can save just by using the code!
2. Get the Look for Less: Dreaming of a designer handbag or expensive pair of jeans? Shop stores such as Marshalls and TJ Maxx which offer many name brands and designer labels at very affordable prices. This is one of the best ways to achieve the designer look you want at a price tag you probably can afford.
3. Go Vintage and Work with What You Already Have: You would be surprised at how much you can already make fabulous by what'??s already hanging in your closet. Pull out some clothes you haven'??t worn in awhile and pair different pieces together. You'??ll be amazed at the different looks you can achieve with what you already have. Still want something new? Then splurge on a fun, new piece of jewelry you can wear with an outfit you already have or a brand new pair of heels '?? that will make the whole look feel fresh and new.
