2 golden rules to stay trendy on a budget

Hi Everyone,

“Absolutely no one wants to look frumpy and outdated in public. Being trendy has become one of the essential ways to be socially adequate.” What a dramatic entrance! Hello ladies, how have you been? I hope that this post finds you well. Social media and the internet have made everyone of all age groups aware of the growing trends, the lushest stores, and expensive luxurious brands. However, many find it a challenge to adopt a trendy lifestyle.

Contrary to the common perception, to be trendy, possessing millions of dollars is not necessary! There are many ways to stay trendy on a budget, but for today let’s just cover 2 of the fundamental rules that anyone can follow to achieve a fashionable lifestyle.

1- Staples are versatile
When shopping, make staples your priority. Find basics that are cool and trendy but not over the top, one of a kind piece. Plain, monochrome T-shirts of different designs, basic pants, shorts, Classic denims, and leather jackets may sound boring but they offer versatility when it comes to styling them for different occasions. Accessories can always be added on top of a plain dress or suit to glam-up the look. The key here is to Style Your Favorite Basics in a Myriad of Inventive Ways – incorporating trendy accessories and hairstyles.

2-Shop your closet 
Declutter Your Closet & Get Reacquainted with Your Wardrobe. It’s time to go shopping in your closet. You'd be surprised by all the wonders that lie within your own wardrobe. From this season's biggest fabric trends (such as leather, crochet, vintage denim) to the print trends that were all over the runways (pinstripes, polka dots, vintage florals) and the silhouettes that are trending right now (voluminous, billowy dresses, puff sleeves, wide-leg trousers), scouring your closet for some of these specific styles will keep your looks very au courant.

And remember the key here is to be creative: Color play, break convention, Go retro or DIY fashion. Everything works. Trends come and go, you can’t discard everything in exchange for a new one each season. It is always better to be creative and think of different ways to achieve the same trendy looks that others spend hundreds of dollars on.
