Looking good is all about feeling good, but sometimes, we pay the price for our fashion spending. The costs do add up, especially when we try to stay in line with the latest trends, but there are ways to make savings.
So, if you are looking for ways to change up your look on a budget, here are some tips we hope you find useful.
Set up a price alert
When browsing your favourite fashion sites, you might be disheartened by the hefty price tags that are sometimes on display. But by bookmarking such sites, you can check back in occasionally to see if the prices have dropped. That is if you remember to do so, of course, and assuming that you pop by at the right moment, as prices can rise and fall at any moment.
This is why you should set up price alerts. You can sometimes do this on the sites themselves, or you can use a site such as Hot Drops, as they will let you know when your preferred items go on sale. You need never miss a discount on your wishlist items again!
Visit wholesale clothing sites
Wholesale fashion sites are great for anybody looking to save money on clothing, as prices are affordable and the items on offer are usually in-trend. A quick Google search will link you to all kinds of wholesale retailers, including Missi Clothing for dresses and knitwear, and Legwear International who sell wholesale legwear. These are just a couple of examples, but whatever you’re looking for online, you are bound to find what you need at discounted wholesale prices.
Sign up to sites as a new customer
When you first sign up to a fashion website, you can often benefit from a welcome discount that has been set up for new customers. This is a great way to buy something for less. But here’s the thing. Once you have made use of the discount, you then have to pay retail prices or wait for a sale. Or do you? By signing up again, but this time with a new email address, you can trick online retailers into thinking you’re another new customer. You might need to use a new bank card, however, or use an alternative payment method, such as Paypal, especially if they already have your payment details on their system.
Check Amazon Warehouse deals
You’re an Amazon customer, right? If so, head over to the Amazon Warehouse section of the site and check out the items that are on offer. These are all items that have been returned and that aren’t eligible to be sold as ‘new’ anymore, but most are still in a brand new condition. You can often pick up the latest in fashion but at discounted prices, and if you’re a Prime customer, you will be able to benefit from free shipping too.
These are just a few of the ways to make savings on fashion, so don’t assume you always have to pay full price for everything. We hope these ideas were useful, but if you have any other suggestions for our readers, please leave us a comment in the box below.
