Everyone knows what that Friday feeling is like. Work is nearly done for the weekend, everyone’s game to go out in the evening, and you’re sure it’s going to be a great night. There’s only one problem: you have nothing to wear, and you don’t have the funds in the bank balance to head out and buy something new. So what do you, stay in or head out feeling less than confident in what you’re wearing? The answer is, neither: instead, you take our advice, and look fresh even when you don’t have all that much money to play with.

Revive That Lost Favourite

When people say that they don’t have anything to wear, they don’t really mean it. They have a lot of clothes after all! They just mean they’re bored with what they have in the wardrobe. But most people have more options than they realise; it’s just that they’re only exploring level one of their wardrobe. Go deeper, into level two, and you might find that there’s an old favourite just waiting to see the light of day again. It’ll be like buying a new piece, but which costs nothing and you’re already familiar with.

Treat Yourself…to Something Inexpensive

Your bank balance might not be bursting at the seams, but unless you’re in severe dire financial straits, you’ll likely have some money to play with. The trick here, therefore, is to get the most bang for your buck, and that means finding a bargain. The next time you’re looking to treat yourself on a budget, check out Very discounts and promos; they’ll help you to get a new outfit without paying full sticker price. No-one said that looking good had to cost the earth, especially when there are so many deals to be found online. You just need to know where to look.

Borrow Your Friend’s Clothes

But let’s say you don’t have the time to buy anything, what do you do then? It’s oh so simple, you hit up your friends. After all, if they’re not willing to help you and lend clothes, are they really your friend? We don’t think so. It doesn’t have to be a one-way street, either; you can give them the pieces that are nice but which you’ve worn recently in exchange.

Nail the Hair and Makeup

Some things will be beyond your control when money is tight, but some things you can own. Take your hair and makeup. That’s all on you! Learn a new makeup tutorial, and spend time getting your hair just right, and you’ll always look good. We’re not going to say it won’t matter what clothes you’re wearing when you look so beautiful…but it’ll at least be less of an issue.

When In Doubt, Whip Out the Classics

If nothing else fails, just whip out the classics. That dress that fits you to a T will make you stand out from the crowd even if you only wore it a couple of weeks ago. At least you’ll look great!
