In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing some of my tips on how to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank. With the cost of living crisis still going on, it’s safe to say that most of us are feeling the pinch. But with a new season arriving soon, you may want to pick up some new items of clothing to give your wardrobe a refresh for the new season. So here are a variety of ways to do that without it costing much money.

Shop Affordable Clothing Websites

My first tip is to shop on websites that offer cheap women’s clothing such as Dear-Lover. Dear-Lover sells a wide range of quality clothing from casual wear, loungewear, activewear, and outerwear to shoes, swimwear, bags and more. They also cater for plus-sized women which is a big plus in my book as it can be hard to find affordable plus-size clothing that is stylish and on-trend. There is a good array of styles, colours and patterns across the website for both straight-sized clothing and plus-sized clothing so you can easily pick and choose from their wide range of clothing to create a full outfit. They also have reviews available on each item of clothing which I think is really handy too.  


Here are some examples of clothing available on Dear-Lover -

 Vinted 

If you’re looking for clothing from more expensive brands or designer brands then Vinted might be worth checking out. You can easily search for what you’re looking for via the free app. For instance, if you’re looking for a red floral dress from a particular brand then you can search exactly what you’re looking for and use the filters to find the size you need, the style of the dress and also what condition the item of clothing is in. 


Repair Clothes Instead Of Throwing Them Out

Another way to update your wardrobe whilst also saving some money is by repairing clothing that you already own. Instead of throwing out a piece of clothing because a seam has ripped or some buttons have fallen off etc, you should repair them instead. Sewing up a seam or re-attaching a button is easy. If you don’t know how to sew then there are lots of easy-to-follow tutorials on YouTube and you can buy a basic sewing kit for about £5-6 on Amazon. It’s also quite satisfying to repair a piece of clothing and give it a new lease of life. 


Check Out Your Local Charity Shops

Another tip is to visit your local charity shops and have a good browse through the rails. They can be a bit hit and miss but sometimes you can drop on some good bargains. Also if you are open to repairing clothes like the above tip then you may find a piece of clothing that’s been heavily discounted due to it needing to be fixed. 


Host a Clothing Swap With Family and Friends 

My final tip is to host a clothing swap with family and/or friends. This obviously only works if you are the same or similar size to the people you’re doing the swap with but they might have some clothes just sitting in their wardrobes that you may really like and vice versa. It’s also a nice way to get together with your friends and family.
