How To Look Amazing When You're Skint*

Every girl wants to look amazing when she goes out with her friends. The trouble is that all the latest fashion items are very expensive, and most people don’t have a lot of money. With that in mind, I wanted to share some tips and tricks that have worked well for me over the years. Contrary to what you might think, it is more than possible to look fantastic regardless of your financial situation. We all made mistakes when we were young, and most of your friends probably have a poor credit rating too. Don’t let something like that get you down when it comes to looking great and feeling confident. There is always an answer, no matter how bad your finances might appear. 

Make your clothing
Okay, so, high-street fashion is very costly these days. Girls who want to reduce their spending but still turn heads when they enter a room could look towards making their clothing. Your mom and gran probably did that when they were young. So, following in their footsteps might not be the worst thing in the world. You can buy materials cheap online, and there’s always someone who’s willing to show you how to use a sewing machine. Who knows? It could be the beginning of a new and profitable hobby. Work hard to improve your skills, and a career in fashion design might seem more feasible. 

Recycle old clothing
Most girls wouldn’t be seen dead in last year’s fashion items. However, it is possible to recycle them and turn them into something original. Maybe you could cut and combine two dresses to make something nobody has ever seen before. You’ll soon become the envy of your friends when you look amazing in clothing they can’t buy. Just be warned they might want to place orders that could keep you very busy. No matter what your wardrobe might look like now, customising your clothing and using some creativity will work well. 

Buy from a catalogue
You need to be careful about getting into too much debt because it will affect you in later life. That said, some companies do provide catalogue credit accounts for poor credit customers. If you can’t afford to purchase the clothing you want outright, that could be the ideal solution. You usually have to pay interest on top of the sale price, but the company takes that money in installments. That means you don’t need to find it all in one go. Getting all the clothing and beauty products you need is simple. You can look stunning without breaking the bank or placing too much strain on your finances. Just make sure you fully understand the rates of interest applied.

You should now have a good idea about the best ways to look amazing when you’re skint. Don’t let a silly little thing like money get in the way of your enjoyment. So long as you don’t land yourself in heaps of debt, who cares?
