Updating your summer closet on a budget

We’ve been there, and we’re sure you have too… that awful moment when you open your closet, look at all of your clothes and can’t find anything at all that you want to wear!

Everyone wants to look good and feel great in the summer and a big part of that is being happy with the clothes you’re wearing. But we understand it can get expensive to buy new clothes all the time. So we’ve put together some budget tips for updating your summer closet!

Accessories are you best friend…

It’s not always new clothes that you need, it’s new things to wear them with. A colourful necklace, bag or belt will brighten up an old outfit, making it look brand new. Accessories will often be a lot cheaper than clothes items, especially if you look in thrift stores or markets.

Swap out your old clothes…

If you have any friends that are a similar size to you, and they’re fed up with their clothes too, why not organize a clothes swap! Make sure all the clothes you swap are in a good condition (don’t try and give away your ripped and faded items, that’s unfair!) and you’ll end up with some outfits that, although are old for your friends, are brand new to you – and you won’t have had to spend a penny.

Get thrifty…

Instead of going to your usual department stores, check out thrift stores, flea markets and online vintage stores like Preloved & Thrifted. You’re sure to find some great items at a really low price. And remember, vintage looks and one-offs are so popular, plus you’ll never have to worry about wearing the same outfit as anyone else!

Look out for sales…

Summer Sales are the perfect place to pick up some bargains. So if you decide you really do want to buy some new clothes, wait for the sales. You could pick up some really great items for a third of the price. But remember there’s a difference between ‘wanting’ and ‘needing’ – if you can spruce up your current closet for now and wait for the sales to begin, you’re sure to save a lot of money and not ruin your budget!

Check out online marketplaces…

Another way to buy new clothes without spending too much money is by using sites like eBay & Facebook Marketplace. Online marketplaces are a great way to grab some bargains! Sit at home, browse and take time to find the best deals. You could even grab a few things for FREE!  Remember that Qmee works with eBay too so you may even earn some cash rewards whilst searching for a new outfit or find some great discount codes and offers.
