5 Tips to Buying Stylish and Trendy Clothes

Sell or trade 

Selling or trading clothes that you no longer need or wear can be a great way to get more stylish and trendy clothes. Check what you don’t wear anymore especially the outdated clothes and those clothes you have grown out of. Ask any of your family or friends who is interested and swap with them. Maybe it’s a pair of trendy shoes your sister or best friend don’t wear anymore. Ask them to set aside what they don’t need any more and buy or trade whatever you like.

Review your closet 

Before going out to your favorite store to add on to your closet, review it first and get rid of what you already have. Get rid of what you don’t need first, then look at what you have. You may have a nice fancy top that may match well with the stylish pair of pants you saw online. Try to create different fusions with what you have and add on to what you don’t have.

Do less online shopping 

Online shopping may be easy for anybody who is always busy and doesn’t have time to go out for shopping. It will be also a great option for you if you already know your size because some times what gets delivered on your doorstep is not exactly what you anticipated for. This can also be costly and time consuming because you have to pay for the items to be returned before they are shipped to you again. So, shop less online unless you are shopping for accessories. Shop sparingly online as you try to compare both online and offline shopping.


Thrifting is a great way to buy stylish and trendy clothes on a small budget. In fact, clothes you buy in thrift store are high quality besides being affordable. What’s more, thrifting can be done both online and offline. You can browse through online thrift store and get exactly what you want, at a price several times cheaper than any big clothing store you know. Even more, with the use of social media, you will find a lot of thrift store pages where trendy fashion is bottomless.

Know your style 

It is important to know the kind of fashion style which suits you. For instance, if you like gothic, then you need to know where to and where not to shop. Shopping in general stores for gothic fashion may be expensive and you may not find everything you want there. Instead, shop in stores that are purely gothic, for example, The Black Ravens which is an exclusive gothic store. You will find more stylish clothes in these stores and you will be able to keep up with any current trends.

    Oh, I love all of your tips! I am currently finishing up with my closet decluttering and getting rid of so many clothes, shoes, and bags that have just been sitting there gathering dust! I want to definitely minimize and be more selective.

    I have recently found a love with thrift shopping and I get some of my best things from there. There are so many cool style s and things you would not find in regular stores for dirt cheap. I do shop on line every now and then but not as much as I do in brick and mortar stores.

    Thanks for the tips! I see fashion as a form of self-expression and anything you wear is an extension of yourself. I find condfidence is key! If you are not confident in what you wear it won’t look a great no matter how trendy it is.

    Thanks for these tips. I used to sell my preloved items usually before buying new ones. I also love to scroll through blog posts to know the latest trends and on the sale items.

    I actually love online shopping. I only shop retailers that have free return shipping. I just don’t like spending hours in a day at a mall, looking through a bunch of clothes. I personally like being in my pj’s on the couch instead.

    I love this article. As a frugal shopper I love thrifting, clearance shopping, and everything else that saves me money. One tip I have is trading also. There is a site called Listia that allows you to bid on products using credits, instead of money. Basically, you trade rather than purchase. You can find the site using this link – https://www.listia.com/r2aleb3/BFHCBJ

    These are great ideas. I’m totally on board with the whole weed-out-what-you-don’t-need-from-your-closet concept.

    Thrifting is my favourite because you get to buy quality clothes for lesser price. I just choose the ones that are not really worn out. These are great tips!

    Thanks for the tips! When clothes shopping,I tend to shop for clothes that are classic rather than trendy.

    I love to go out and shop till I drop. But, recently I’ve been trying my best to shop but still save more money. These tips should be helpful.
