Seeking Trendy Yet Budget-Friendly Fashion Finds? Here Are 5 of Them

Being fashionable doesn’t have to break the bank. Many budget-friendly options still look great and let you express your vision. Here are five of the best trends that don’t cost an arm and a leg — even if their purpose is to cover them!

1. Thrifted Statement Pieces

Clothing that really says something makes a big splash in your wardrobe. However, many people shy away from purchasing these items because they’re too loud or expensive. But a statement piece is an absolute must for any trendy wardrobe. One way to get them for less is to thrift.

These are often filled to the brim with buried treasures that can transform an outfit into something exceptional. A statement piece doesn’t have to be anything too extravagant, either; as long as it’s something unique that speaks to you, you’re bound to find a way to incorporate it into your wardrobe.

2. Versatile Basics

Basics will never go out of fashion; they’re the cornerstone of every good outfit and should be in every wardrobe, not just those who care about fashion trends. With enough basics, you can easily mix and match elements of an outfit. It also makes it much easier to make more unique pieces to work, like a thrifted statement piece, if you have a more versatile closet. Best of all, high-quality basics last much longer, making them cost-effective since you don’t have to buy new ones each season.

3. Say-Something Accessories

Like a statement piece, accessories can add intrigue and personality to any outfit. Investing in pieces like a fun belt or hat can make it much easier to make an otherwise basic look on-trend. You can often find extremely cheap accessories through fast-fashion stores. While this is a budget-friendly option, remember it’s always best to spend your money on something that will last—something that fast-fashion pieces are not known to do very well.

4. The Oversized Blazer

We’ll get more specific with our items and move on to a piece that’s seen a major comeback: the oversized blazer. They can elevate the most casual outfits into something dressier or more sophisticated.

We recommend opting for blazers with a more neutral color, like navy or black, so you have more opportunities to match them with various colors and patterns. And since oversize is in right now, you don’t have to concern yourself much with the fit — just make sure it’s well-made; maybe buy yours from a thrift store or on clearance at a department store.

5. Sneakers

Sneakers: the perfect combination of fashion and function. A well-made pair of sneakers can go extremely well with everything from casual attire to something more hip and attractive.

This is another time where, while the sneakers themselves might be more costly than some would spend, you’re making an investment; shoes are never something you should buy just because they’re cheap. That said, there’s no reason you always have to pay full price either, since many discount retailers offer fantastic options that will keep you comfortable and fashionable.
