Scour the Sales

Winter is the time to buy summer clothes on the cheap! You can look online at the bundles of chic sundresses that are discounted at this time of year. The internet is one of the easiest ways to find amazingly inexpensive clothes for summer. Try to ignore that the wind is blowing outside and the air is so bitter you can’t leave the house without your bobble hat. Use your imagination to escape to warmer climates and think about what you might want to be wearing when the sun decides to make an appearance. If you scour the sale items now you’ll be all sorted when summer hits and you won’t get caught up in the mad-dash around the shops in the sweltering heat. You’ll save yourself a fortune by opting for sale stuff, so your bank account will be pleased too.

Sharing is Caring

Your best friend has the best sense of style. She rocks the effortlessly chic look every single day, especially in summer. Her clothes are perfectly pressed and her sandals always seem to match her satchel. If you didn’t love her so much you’d probably hate her. Have you ever thought that she might be thinking the same about you? You should totally combine both of your magical makeover powers to create a sensational summertime style. Gather together all of your resources and pool them into one bundle of fun. If you share your clothes with your bestie you’ve got twice the amount of clothes to play with. Mix and match your styles and create whole new looks for summer. There may some things that she’s totally sick of, but you adore them. You will gladly take them off her hands! Make it an enjoyable activity and you’ll find your wardrobe will look brand spanking new.

Double Up

There’s no distinct line between day and night time outfits you know. Have you ever thought of enhancing a plain and simple outfit so that you can wear it for any occasion? You have a plain old pair of denim shorts that you never wear. They’re so boring and just, blergh. You should jazz them up with a shimmery top and a pair of heeled sandals and voila! You now have sleek and summery outfit that looks just like new. Dress up a plain sundress with a light-coloured tailored jacket and you’ll transform a casual day outfit into a smart evening ensemble. Don’t be afraid to clash your colours now and then either, as long as you’re bold and confident about it you’ll pull anything off effortless.

    • That is the best time to shop, Jacqueline! I love a good bargain! I also love finding ways to style the pieces right away even when they are off season. Obviously it works better when buying summer pieces in winter than in the reverse because you can just work some layering magic! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
