The New Year is the perfect time to start fresh. Unfortunately, after the holiday season, most of us don’t have money for a new wardrobe. However, you don’t need to break the bank to refresh your look. By updating your closet with just a handful of pieces, you can avoid the post-Christmas winter wardrobe rut and stay on budget.
Here are three tips for affordable additions to your wardrobe that will see you through what’s left of winter and into spring!
TIP #1 – Accessorize
Throwing on a colourful scarf is the perfect way to jazz up any outfit. Plus, it will keep you nice and cozy through those cold winter days.
Suggestion: Exauree from Aldo Outlet, now $35
Pick up this super soft and stylishly-coloured boucle brushed scarf! The pointed tips of this piece allow you to recreate all of your favourite scarf styles.
TIP #2 – Layer
There’s an art to layering and it all starts with the right cardigan. By investing in a trendy cardigan or two, you can make any outfit feel new again.
Suggestion: Knitted Cardigan from Dynamite, now $21.00
This affordable, open-fronted cardigan will layer perfectly with all your favourite denim and basics. A relaxed fit makes this piece extremely comfortable — not to mention stylish!
TIP #3 – Dress up
A little professional wear goes a long way. You don’t have to invest in a full tailored suit but adding a contemporary blazer to your wardrobe is a good way to refresh your look.
Suggestion: Sopron Paneled Scuba Blazer from Guess Factory, now $34.99
Style this blazer with denim and a simple white tee for a refined version of office casual. This streamlined blazer features a modern paneled design and cute pocket details.
