CLEO (Malaysia) - - YOUR LIFE, YOUR RULES! -

Let’s be hon­est, how much ex­actly do you spend on your clothes and ac­ces­sories ev­ery month? And let’s not even start on shoes and make-up (damn you, Sephora). Keep­ing up with the lat­est fash­ion trends is not an easy (read: cheap) feat. It’s a con­stant jug­gle be­tween keep­ing your fi­nances afloat, and hav­ing your make-up and out­fit look­ing on fleek. But what if we told you that you could stay at the top of your fash­ion game with­out hit­ting rock bot­tom in your bank ac­count? We spoke to Com­pareHero.my, who are ded­i­cated to help­ing Malaysians make smarter and well-in­formed fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions in life, and short­listed these five tips.

Look to the In­ter­net for style in­spos. With celebs flood­ing ba­si­cally ev­ery so­cial me­dia plat­form, you shouldn’t have any trou­ble look­ing for muses. Mu­si­cians and ac­tresses aren’t the only peo­ple to model your look after; fash­ion blog­gers and Youtu­bers tend to have re­ally savvy tips on look­ing chic, with­out max­ing out your card. In­sta-stalk these icons now: prices of these items have al­ready been jacked up to min­imise any sales loss. Scope out garage sales, vin­tage or thrift stores around your area in­stead.

Be­sides, thrift shops are like the trea­sure throve of fash­ion — there’s usu­ally a chance of un­earthing some truly gor­geous vin­tage pieces.
