My Tips to Save Money on Your Winter Wardrobe

Buying a new wardrobe each season can be ridiculously expensive. Who has the money to do that apart from rich celebrities? That being said, most of us still need new clothes to keep us comfortable and warm. I have some tips here that will help you to save money on your winter wardrobe. Enjoy!

Swap With Friends

Instead of going out to buy new clothes, swap with your friends instead. Grab some clothes you no longer want or wear, and tell them to do the same. Then agree on things to swap! You’ll all end up with completely new clothes and at no cost to you.

Buy Vintage

Vintage clothing can be expensive, depending on what you buy. However, you won’t usually pay more for a vintage shirt than you would for a regular shirt. So, why buy vintage? Because you can wear it again and again! Nobody is going to look at a vintage item and know where it’s from or what season it was. They’ll simply think you have a unique style. You can really get your wear out of vintage clothing. Plus, if you ever get to the point where you want to sell it, you’ll get more for it than a recently bought item!

Find Voucher Codes

I never buy clothes without looking for voucher codes to get money off first. You can bet I’ll at least find a code for 10% off or free shipping. You may need to check a few different sites and test a few different codes, but you’ll usually find one that works! 


Buy Second Hand

Instead of buying brand new, buy second hand. Check Depop, eBay and similar sites to see if the item you’re looking for is selling any cheaper. Usually, second hand items have only been worn a handful of times. Sometimes they haven’t been worn at all! Always check for a second hand bargain before you buy new.

Learn How to Layer

Layering items is a skill. Once you’ve mastered it, you can take an outfit from drab to fab! Not to mention create a look using clothes you bought a while back, and nobody will be any wiser. There’s no need to keep your summer clothes for warmer days. You can easily make a dress suitable for winter by adding tights, boots, and a jumper or coat!

Sell Old Clothes First

Before buying new clothes, sell your old clothes. Put them on a selling site with a low starting bid to get interest. This works especially well with brand name clothes and designer items. You should be able to get back a lot of money, which you can then put towards buying your winter wardrobe!

Use these tips to save money on your winter wardrobe and you’ll love the results! You’ll have more money in your bank for winter activities, which can be useful with Christmas just around the corner. If you have any tips of your own you’d like to share, make sure you leave a comment below.
