    Where’d the allowance go?

    Whether your parents are forcing you to get a job in college or you’ve always had to fend for yourself, it’s hard to make fashion trends a priority while you’re at school.


Still, you want to look good while you’re doing good in class, which is why you need ways to be stylish and trendy on a budget. This is how you can set a trend on your campus next semester.

Shop Sales

Always check the discount pile at your favorite stores before shopping for items marked at retail. If you’re shopping at a store that sells things you love, you may find something you had your eye on last season in the sale bin. Don’t be afraid to buy clothes, home décor, and more out of season to save money.

Pro-Tip: Use the toggle function when shopping online so you can sort items from lowest to highest price. This allows you to scroll through what you can afford.

Follow Your Favorite Brands

A great way to get a hold of high-end items you may not be able to afford otherwise is by following your favorite brands’ social media or newsletters. They may announce special deals or giveaways. Always wait for a deal before purchasing stylish items you love.

Pro-Tip: The more giveaways you enter, the more likely you are to win one! Get your friends in on the fun when you tag them.

Use Your Discount Codes

Styling your life is expensive, even when you’re budgeting. Don’t forget to use the discount codes and points you get for signing up and making purchases from your favorite companies. Get affordable boutique furniture that’s built to last or high-quality outerwear when you take advantage of coupons.

Pro-Tip: Save or star emails with coupon codes! You’re more likely to remember you have them if you highlight them in your inbox.

Shop Second-Hand

Find many top brands and luxury items at consignment stores. Truly, you never know what you’ll come across at a pawn shop or thrift store. Often, you’ll find slightly used items that are still good quality.

Trade, Barter, and Borrow

Connect with your friends and family and trade things you don’t want. Many people have stuff around their homes that they don’t use and want to give away. Arrange a swap with your friends or co-workers so you can hunt through one another’s treasures for things that might be useful to you.

It’s difficult to furnish a dorm or be a trendsetter when you’re working with your own budget. Still, it’s a learning experience every adult tries to perfect. Finding ways to be stylish and trendy on a budget is different for everyone.

You may enjoy thrifting more than looking at sales. Or you may only be able to afford to enter giveaways right now. Either way, put your efforts toward something worthwhile during these important years to accomplish goals of any size.
