If you are in college, chances are your shopping mantra is: look stylish, spend minimal. And that can be quite a challenge, especially if you don’t know where to buy and what to buy. But don’t worry — we’ve got some pointers that will help you shop without making your wallet lighter.
1Create your own style
Go for clothes that suit your personality and body type. Looking stylish is one thing but being comfortable is also important. And who says you have to choose between the two?
2 Make your own fashion budget
You’re in college, you can’t splash the cash at your own will. Your fashion purchase should be like an investment. Go for quality rather than quantity.
3You don’t need brands to look good
So forget about the labels when you go street shopping. What you need is an eye to pick up an outfit that looks and feels good.
E-coupons and online discounts are a great way to get trendy clothes at affordable prices.
5Always go for low-maintenance clothes
You don’t want to waste time hand-washing or ironing your clothes if you’re running late for class, right? So go for clothes that are easy to maintain.
6Buying shoewear can be quite a tricky affair
Make sure you opt for semi-casual footwear which goes with any kind of outfit, and is durable.
7Want to buy formal wear?
Get it tailored rather than buying from showrooms, for a long-lasting, good quality outfit.
