During the global pandemic, you might have found that your personal style suffered. Especially if you didn’t have anywhere to go, maybe gained some weight while being stuck at home, and suffered from some emotional issues due to everything that was going on in the world and your personal life, it’s only natural that your desire to care about how you look kind of went out the window.
But now that the world is back in full swing, it might be time for you to start elevating your look again so that you can feel proud and comfortable whenever you step outside the house. To help you learn how you can do this without having to invest a small fortune into your wardrobe, here are three ways to elevate your style without elevating your budget.
Focus On Fit
One thing that can make any wardrobe look sloppy is when the fit isn’t right. And luckily, you don’t necessarily have to pay a lot of money to find clothes that fit you. While you can take your clothes to a tailor to ensure that they are custom fitted to your body, this is going to be more expensive than just buying clothes off the rack. So if you can find clothes off the rack that fit you well, you’re automatically going to have clothes that look elevated.
While many people are focused more on the size of the clothes that they are wearing and will beat themselves up if they wear a size that they think is bigger than it could or should be, no one else really cares about the size of clothes that you wear. What they’re really going to notice is if the clothes fit you well and how confident you appear while wearing what you’re wearing. And if you can get those two things right, your style will skyrocket.
Aim For Quality, Not Quantity
Something else that people often make wardrobe mistakes with is buying clothes simply because they are cheap in an effort to save money. But when you think about how much money you’ll be spending over the course of your life by purchasing “fast fashion”, you’ll be much better off investing in pieces that are quality over quantity. So whether you’re buying synthetic leather products or a quality made jacket, it’s worth it to spend the money to buy something made well that you can add to a capsule wardrobe.
If you aren’t in the habit of reading labels before washing clothes, start doing this. If you haven’t used your iron in years, bring it back out so you can press your clothes before wearing them. And if you don’t clean your shoes or jackets on a regular basis, try to make this more of a consistent thing. All of these things will help to elevate your look and make your clothes and accessories last longer.
If you’re wanting to look better without devoting more money to your wardrobe, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you see how this can be done.
