CAIRO – 5 February 2018: With all those different clothes and new trends coming out every season just begging to be bought, one might begin to associate money with good clothes and a great style. An association that I totally disagree with as money can never buy taste or style; it’s something that comes from you no matter what budget you have at your disposal. With that being said, here are some tips that can help you be stylish with whatever budget you have.

Tip#1: Try to always go for solid colors over prints

Ever wondered why full looks in one color are considered chic and elegant? One of the main reasons is that solid colors have the ability to make any fabric look amazing and clean. They tend to also be a great tool in your closet as you can basically style it any way and with almost anything. While on the other hand, prints may exaggerate the flaws of cheap fabrics, and look extremely off-putting as they tend to attract attention.

Tip#2: Choose simple, clean designs

Clothes that have ruffles, fishnets, or even fancy closures are usually considered fashion pieces which makes them go out of fashion easily. In order to avoid that and get the most out of your money, you should go for cleaner leaner designs that are known to stand the test of time.

Tip#3: Look for garments that you can combine or layer

Clothes that can be combined with different flannels, cardigans or accessories are a great investment and a huge money saver. You get to spend money on only a few items that in the end can give you endless outfits and boundless possibilities to choose from.

Tip#4: Vary your textures not just your colors

We all get to that time where we get extremely bored and notice that we’ve been wearing the same colors again and again every day. At that point, some of you might hit the shops and invest in a newly colored piece that of course won’t go with your current wardrobe. Consequently, you’ll end up buying more and more of the color to try and fit it in.

This will not only cost you money, but also add to the problem as it’s again the same thing over and over again. Let me suggest sticking to your color pattern, but investing in different textures as they can look extremely different and give you various looks even with them all being the same color.

Tip#5: Spend more on accessories

Accessories are the reason why you can obtain several looks from the same outfit. You can dress an outfit up with some heels and a nice bag, or dress it down with a cardigan, a backpack, and some sneakers. They are the core of any closet and, in this case, your best friend if you need to look stylish on a budget. Accessories can help you style a basic outfit to fit the never-ending trends.
