For a long time I used to buy cheap clothes to save money, this would save me money in the short term, however, in the long term I realised I would end up spending more. Because the clothes would wear off quickly and fast especially after the first wash. So decided to start spending money on quality garments. This did not happen overnight. Here are some of the secrets to shopping quality clothes without break the bank.
Go around when the clothes just hit the store and look for items that fits within your style and preference, try them on but do not buy them just yet. If you find something of quality and you love it, take a picture and/or the barcode and keep it. Wait for a few weeks when the same item will be sold at a discounted price. This has helped me get some quality clothes without break the bank.
Personally I prefer not to shop during sales because it takes more effort to find the right piece and it is easy to get impulsive. But this is also a good way to buy quality items at a discounted price. For this to be efficient and easy, do window shopping beforehand and go into the store knowing exactly what you would like to spend your money on. If you would not buy an item if it were full price, then don’t buy it just because it’s on sale.
Off season buying
Buying clothes when seasons are changing is also a good way to find quality items at a good price. Because clothes tend to be reduced in price. I buy my winter clothes mid spring and I buy my summer clothes beginning of fall this way I’m sure to get quality for less.
If you have a designer outlet closer to where you live this is another way you can get quality designer clothes for less. I’m not into designer clothes as much but i do love timeless and quality items. I will buy a designer only if it’s a timeless piece. If it’s on trend I will as much try not spend my money on but buy something which is going to fit well with my personal style and match with what I already have. I discovered this not long ago and have found some quality clothes without break the bank.
Another way to find quality for less is thrift shopping, like shopping from charity shops, you save money and also make your spending go towards a worthy cost. Also if you like being creative this also a way to get used clothes and remake them to your desired look.
