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.
