College days are the special time of your life that you will remember forever. Have you ever thought about what makes college life so special?
Yes, there is only one thing that makes these years the best years of your life; i.e. “you are on the receiving side, all the time”. From the care and kindness of your parents and teachers to the love of your buddies; and from the golden opportunity of getting valuable knowledge to the prospect of having a wonderful career, you are on the receiving side all the time.
At this young age your looks are naturally fascinating, however you always strive to look even better. And why not, you are energetic, have awesome looks and an attractive personality. However, to look fab one has to buy trendy clothing and other grooming stuff. That is usually out of reach for most of the students. Here are seven ways you can look Fab on budget.
1. Define Your Fashion
Looking fab with scare resources is very much possible. However, you have to define your fashion style. Most students are caught up in the major brands such as Nike sneakers, Hermes handbags and to use lot of jewelry; as they are going to compete with Emma Watson or Tom Felton. However this perception isn’t correct. You can meet all the fashion standards without spending on such extravagant things. Moreover, you have to understand that using more fashion stuff at a time, is not the key to look Fab.
2. Develop your Fashion Budget
Students are very good at developing and managing their finances, so why not to develop your fashion budget? You just need to allocate fraction of your income or pocket money for the grooming stuff. Money is yours and so is the choice, but I just want to advise you to allocate your finance for the purchase of stuff that you really need. Also prefer quality stuff that can last for at least few months.
3. Choose Unbranded stuff over Branded
Irrespective of that you love branded clothing stuff or not, you have to understand that wearing named brand clothing is not the only way to look fab. Yes, I agree that renowned fashion brands set the direction of fashion trends however if you look around, there are some other companies who produce high class clothing at a much more reasonable price. This is for whom? It is for you and me. All we need to realize that we can live without brands.
4. Look to your neighbourhood discount stores
You can get great fashion items in discount stores in your local neighborhood; all you need is to visit them often and take your time searching through the racks of clothing. You should visit it at least twice a month.
5. Search for Online Discount Shops
Online discount stores are a great way to get trendy clothes and spend less money. Forever21.com, Wetsealcom, gojane.com, Target.com and H&M – Hm.com are just a few names that will offer you trendy fashion stuff at quite affordable price.
6. Search for E-Coupons
E-coupons are just like loyalty cards, you just can save up to 50% and even more on such coupons. Deal catcher, Any coupons, retail me not and Coupon craze are the prominent E coupon sites.
7. Receive special offers from online shops
