The team from GiffGaff are offering some great deals on free SIM cards and they approached me to find out how I do fashion on a budget as part of their Tips for Living on a Budget series.
I am a serious bargain hunter when it comes to clothes as saving for house isn’t an easy job when I want to look fashionable all the time!
My parents have always told me to buy one expensive time and build around that, but, for once, I didn’t listen! I’ve bought myself lots of cheaper items so my outfits look fresh all the time!
The first obvious port of call would be Primark. I’ve recently stocked up on ‘work clothes’ from there. I opted for some smart cropped trousers and lots of coloured shirts. The trousers are a mere £8 each and I purchased them in black, coral and cyan. I chose shirts in coral, light blue and black at £8. I also grabbed so super cute checked tops at £6 each. These give me so many out choices! As I type I’m wear the cyan trousers and black shirt and have been complimented on how great my trousers are!
Here are some shameless selfies of myself and the partner is crime to show off the amazing colours of my new shirts, and the black trousers are making a sneaky appearance too!
I would also say places like H&M have great options too, a little pricer than Primark but still really reasonable.
I bought these beauties for £15, teamed them with a white vest, and the blue shirt pictured above unbutton slightly and I felt amazing! No-one knew my outfit cost as little as it did! I have seen trousers just like this in Zara for £30!
Sales are always great too! A pair of trousers I bought for £3 in the H&M sale go perfectly with my coral shirt and it’s a total bargain outfit!
If you’re an online shopper then looking in eBay is a great way of saving money if you’re not worried about where your clothes come from. Of course there are plenty of shops on there selling brand new clothes too!
This amazing find cost me £7!
Also the likes of Boohoo, Missguided and Pretty Little Thing offer fashion at really affordable prices
