Stacey’s secrets are about secrets in fashion and styling tips. A fashionista who is a model that can make a simple outfit pop! My column is here to help women and men shine even more through what they wear. This issue I will explain how to be fashionable on a budget.

Let’s begin.

Trying to keep up with everyday fashion but only making minimum wage at your job? Let me give you some advice on being stylish and fashionable on a budget.

Some girls want to have the latest clothes seen on Fashion Nova or what Kylie Jenner is wearing on their Instagram. For those of you who don’t know, Fashion Nova is very well-known online clothing brand for women. They sell the latest fashion that celebrities are wearing, but even Fashion Nova is expensive.

My favorite place to find good deals on clothes is Forever 21 sales section. Forever 21 can have its expensive sections, but I actually find those clothes to be not that fashionable. Being fashionable is about mixing up pieces you already have to make something better. So, for example, when I shop in Forever 21 I remind myself of the clothing I already have in my closet. That way I don’t have to buy an entire outfit, I can just add to what I already have.

A sartorial side tip would be to purchase clothes a season ahead of time. Since it is spring, now is a good time to purchase all your winter clothes from fur vest, long trench coats, and sweaters because those items are on sale and retailers want to push out that inventory.

Another way you can be fashionable on a budget is selling items you never wear. If you are on a budget you can sell your items on where you can earn extra cash. Poshmark is an online community where people can buy and sell their clothes.  Just sign up, take a picture of your item, share it for shoppers to see, then ship once you have a customer then earn cash.

According to Who What Wear, an online fashion styling portable where women can get tips and information on the latest news says wear menswear can be cheaper. If you’re looking to buy a suit jacket for it’s much cheaper purchase it from the men’s department instead of women’s.

What I want you to take away from this article is learning that you can still be stylish, but also still have money in your pockets. I hope everyone can take something away from this. I’ll see you in the sale section at Forever 21!
