When it comes to slaying, quality and quantity take a different meaning. Quality doesn't mean labels, designer or anything fancy, and quantity doesn't mean a stuffed closet.
How to slay on a budget
Use these tips to make epic pocketfriendly fashion statements.
Each piece plays an important role in the quality of the whole look and the various pieces are switched to make a thousand looks for a statement.
Swap designer clothes for thrift
A designer outfit or piece shows that you stay up to date with trends and your favourite designer but you don't necessarily slay. Designer apparel is also saturated with 'fakes' that anyone can get.
Styling thrift and non-designer articles of clothing is what sets you apart and makes your statement.
If you cannot forego designer and it fits your budget, wear only one designer article per outfit. Thrift clothes are divided into unique and cheap first class and second class clothes for all preferences.
Buy multi-purpose clothes
Invest in major outfit enhancers. This includes: jackets, that you can repurpose for different outfits, coats, accessories.
Switch two-piece clothes
Swich two-piece outfits with other clothes. This means if you buy a matched outfit, you can wear the top with different pants or skirts, and the pants or skirt with different tops.
Buy neutral colours
Make 80 per cent of your closet neutral colours or mute colours. Shouting colors are easily memorable and risk fading over time.
It is harder for neutral colour to suffer the same fate. They will be long lasting and you can style them with a wide range of colours and accessories.
Buy multi-purpose shoes
Your choice of shoes style should favour most clothes in your closet. If you love heels, have a pair that matches well at least most of your dresses or skirts.
Lastly, slaying is not a daily must-have. Pick your moments to minimise pressure on your wardrobe. It also doesn't have to be glamorous each time.
