Are you tired of feeling like you never have anything to wear? Or that you never have enough money to buy the pieces you want?

How to Dress Chic + Classy on a Budget

Do you groan every time you look at a price tag on a piece of clothing you really want?

Dressing chic on a budget can be hard, especially if you don't have enough money to buy super expensive classic pieces and you don't like buying pieces that won't last.

Don't worry though because today I have a bunch of tips to help you save money while looking chic and classy! You're welcome!

Tips for How to Dress Chic + Classy on a Budget

1. Save up + Buy One Item at a Time

If you save up to buy one item at a time, then you can buy something on the more expensive side that is better quality.

This can also help you to avoid shopping sprees! :)

2. Know What You are Going to Buy

I always use this tip. Sign up for your favorite store's email list so that you can know whenever they are having a sale. Then around once a month you can drop onto the site and see if there is anything that you like.

If there is, don't spend your money at once. Pin it to a special Pinterest board like "Wishlist" or add it to your favorites bar so you can come back later.

Now all you have to do is wait until it is on sale or you have a coupon and then you can buy it for less. Plus, when you don't buy it on an impulse, you can decide if you really like it, and if it is worth buying.

3. Wait for a Holiday

If you wait for a holiday, then most stores are going to be having sales. It is a great time to buy it then especially if it is Black Friday.

4. Invest in Basic Pieces

If you buy basic pieces like a white tee or black skinny jeans, you can make more outfits with that piece. Plus basic pieces always look chic too! Investing in coats and jackets is also a good idea if you live somewhere cold because you will wear them a lot and it will make your outfit more classy.

I find that clothing in neutral colors always looks more expensive than clothing in bright colors and bold prints, so keep this in mind when you are shopping.

5. Add Some Cute Accessories

Adding some cute cheap accessories can take any look from plain boring to super stylish. Even though the cheaper accessories may not be the best quality, if you pair them with one of the pieces you invested in, it will elevate your whole look.

6. Don't Buy Cheap Looking Items

Stay away from cheap-looking clothes and if you are buying them online, make sure that you read the reviews and you check the sizing charts.

The sandals in these pictures only cost me around $10, but because of the neutral colors and the braided straps, they don't look super cheap.

Also, avoid clothes that are trendy today, and out of style tomorrow. Stick with classic pieces that you like and make you feel confident. Stay away from clothes that are purposely made to look used: ripped, holey, stained.
