Hey budget babes! If you’re strapped for cash after your hols it’s time to get thrifty! Who said you have to spend loads of dollar to look good? Not us! Get yo’ thrift on with these tips for looking good without breaking the bank.

Shop the boohoo sale

We get it. Sometimes you’ve just gotta have a bit of retail therapy. Have a lil root through our sale and find yo’self a style steal!


Up-cycle your garms

If you’re a crafty kinda gal, there’s new clothes right under your nose! Old jeans? Give ’em a snip into denim shorts. That old tee might make a cute crop – and adding broaches, patches and buttons to old jackets can give ’em a real style update.


Get basic

When you do buy new clothes, go for basic staple pieces that can be easily dressed up or down. A simple black dress can be jazzed up with sassy make-up, heels and a whip-worthy ‘do. You can mix ‘n’ match them with everything, too.


Clothes swap

What else are besties for but sharing clothes? We bet your squad have some serious envy of your ‘drobe, and you’ve deffo spotted some outfits to die fo’ of theirs. Why not organise a clothes swap of all the stuff you don’t wear anymore? Anything that doesn’t get swapped can go to a thrift store or charity shop. One girl’s trash is another gal’s treasure and all that.


Thrifty vintage and charity shops

If you love to be unique and totes feel those vintage vibes, you can always pick up some pre-loved pieces for a bargain price in charity shops and vintage stores. It might take some diggin’ but you’re sure to find the waviest garms and some one-off pieces no one else has!


Clear it out

We know it sounds kinda counter-productive- you need new RN! But if you’re anything like us your ‘drobe is probably bursting with pieces you forgot about. Have a day to clear that place out and actually look at your clothes. You never know, there might be a little beauty you completely forgot you owned right where you left it!
