Fashion finds for the frugal girl

  Thursday 25th September 2014

Let us all rejoice as we kick our flip-flops to the back of the closet and breathe a sigh of relief that bikini season is a long nine months away. It’s time to pull out the oversized sweaters, dark colored leggings, and riding boots because autumn is here! However your excitement may be dwindled as one look into your closet leaves you feeling a little worse-for-wear (literally).

As you peruse through the tops you were photographed in all last holiday season, the pants you’ve worn to work for the past three years, and boots that have clearly seen better days your disappointment sets in and you’re left asking yourself the question: how can I look great and cutting edge this season without dissipating my savings?

It’s almost impossible to completely revamp a full wardrobe, and as much as we all would love to look our stylish and most put-together selves this season, for a majority of us it’s financially impossible to do a complete overhaul. Instead, we have to balance our budget with our binging by finding affordable, yet fashion forward places to supplement our style needs this fall.

After doing a lot of research on the World Wide Web, we stumbled on some sites that are perfect for your autumn and winter wardrobe without breaking the bank:

This site offers leggings in every color of the rainbow and over-the-knee socks that are right on trend for the season.

Another one-stop-shop for great trousers, blouses, coats, and knitwear that are offer prints, bold colors, and varying textiles to make any drab closet turn instantly fabulous at low costs.

Great online retailers who sell inexpensive shoes and accessories for every palate; their rain boots, scarves, and bags have funky styles that are as affordable as they are cute.

Nothing is more on point this season than over sized and over the shoulder wools. Everything from cashmere, lamb’s wool, British wool, silk, and beyond is offered for a steal.

Wherever you decide to shop to bring your fashion up to date, remember not to sacrifice your hard earned cash on all your clothes. Instead, visit one of these or the other amazing retailers on You’ll find generous discount codes and free shipping offers without even having to step your tattered old boots out the door.
