Clothes can be expensive but with these tips, you can start saving money on fashion. I have spent many years struggling to afford clothes. My circumstances have meant that I have prioritised by buying food, paying bills and buying clothes for my children. Buying clothes for myself has always been the thing that I have gone without recently.
I have made excuses for not buying clothes for myself over the past few years. I have enough clothes in my wardrobe, they get messy when my children hug me and get sticky food (usually raspberry jam) on my back, I don’t really have many evenings out any more and that I could use the money for a day out or trip to the cinema instead.
It has got to the point where I need to buy new clothes, after avoiding it for so long. I feel scruffy and I have gone up a size. It doesn’t bother me that I have put on a little bit of weight but it does bother me that my clothes are a bit more snug than I’d like. They are starting to feel uncomfortable.
I have been looking into how I can afford some new clothes and have come up with the following solutions:
Saving Money on Fashion
- Shop when there is a sale on. There seem to be sales on throughout the year nowadays. I do like to look at the clothes in Next so I will be keeping note of when their next sale starts.
- Using voucher codes. There are all sorts of sites out there that offer voucher codes. You just have to have a look online. I have found some online discount codes for New Look, which will come in useful.
- Charity shop bargains. I was pleasantly surprised to find some lovely items in my local charity shops, at a very affordable price.
- Write down your clothes budget and stick to it.
- Sell your old clothes.
New Look Promotional Codes
After looking at all of these options, I was impressed with the My Favourite Voucher Codes website. I really like New Look clothing, as I feel these clothes fit my body shape and the sizing is what I would expect, in my opinion. The New Look promotional codes are something I am going to look into more when I choose and purchase my new clothes. I think this will help my budget to stretch further too. My Favourite Voucher Codes donate 20% of their profits to charity. By using these voucher codes you’re donating to charity.
My Clothes Choices from New look
I really like this Blue Denim Single Pocket Tie Waist Shirt Dress. It looks so cool and comfortable for the summer months. I like the length of the skirt, which is mid-length. I can imagine wearing this during the daytime.
This White Floral Print Funnel Neck Vest looks very appealing. Although I sometime like to wear plain clothes, this looks like something that is a bit smarter. It also looks like a top that I would be able to go out somewhere special in. I like florals at the moment, so this is one I will certainly keep in mind.
These Grey High Waisted Leggings are the type of leggings I’ve been looking for. I have bought leggings before that have rested more on my hips. My body shapes doesn’t really suit low waisted leggings so I have never felt comfortable in them. As these New Look leggings have a higher waist, I think that these would suit me better.
I think the New Look promotional codes will come in very handy this summer. I am looking forward to refreshing my wardrobe in an affordable way.
