The right way to wear cheap
I love bargains when clothes shopping and always try to shop cheaply however when shopping cheaply I desperately try to ensure it doesn't actually look cheap. Here are my secret do's and don'ts Cheap Chic List...
Do - Shop in the sales of more expensive high street shops, but don't buy anything you don't need, doesn't suit you or you don't love instantly!
Don't - Shop head to toe in cheap clothes and especially not from the same shop. For example I would dress Tiger in a tee from H&M, jeans from primark and then a pair of Converse.
Do - Shop in charity shops, you can get some great find. Just look at this Zara leather Jacket I found for a few pounds.
Don't - Buy ill fitting clothes. I think cheap jeans are easy to spot. I usually opt for skinny or straight legged as they tend to look better on. If you prefer baggier then spend a bit more.
Do - Spend a bit more on the pieces you wear often for example coats, jackets and shoes. You will get more for your money in the long run.
Don't - Buy clothes with horrible material. My mum always laughs at me as I always like to give clothes a good stroke! If it makes me shudder I won't buy it (a bit weird I know!) Personally I stay away from velour and fleece jumpers and head towards to knits and jersey.
