Tips for teenagers on a budget



Do you have a really tight budget and would like to follow the newest trends or just buy what you saw in an expensive store. Here are some tips and tricks. Ofcourse there are always sales or clearance, which you should always look for. But you just can't always find things on sale....

1. Get inspiration

Magazines

They are probably the best inspiration you can get, they can also show how to mix and math certain items and they tell you about the newest trends.






Stores
Instead of buying the expensive designer clothes, you can get inspired by the styles they are presenting or finding a similar item somewhere else. They can give you ideas about which things might fit together or what items that would fit well to the rest of your clothing. Online or in stores, both are a good way to get inspired.
Runway
Here you can really high fashion inspiration, instead of just from stores or magazines. You can see the colors, textures and styles for the upcoming season and get some ideas into how you can mix them into your everyday wardrobe.

2. Make a list with things you need or want for the next season

                                      

Then cross out the things you really don't need and the unessecary things. Just narrow it down as much as possible. Example: Do you really need another shirt, do you not have enough?

3. Think of ways to reuse your clothing items


  

Can you think of new ways to combine shirt or sweater? Example: Putting a sweater over a skirt...it looks amazing, if you do it right and something you might have not expected. There you go a great new outfit. Also sometimes you can take a dress that is really boring and pimp it up with some diy lace detailing or some embroidery.You could also transform boring outfits into trendy ones. Sometimes you just need a staple piece or a new trend to give your boring outfit the extra spice you want.

4. Research and compare prices

I personally love doing this. If I see something totally overpriced, I think of a way to either diy it or look around in stores or online to find something cheaper but still similar.

Example: 

Junior's Quilted Skirt Charcoal S(3-5)Grey Jersey Kilt

Now these look pretty similar, the one on the right may not have as nice outfit with the actual item (the skirt). But if you just look at the skirt, its actually pretty cute. Now the one on the left is 17$ and is from target (love shopping there) and the right one is 45$ from topshop. Let's say you've been looking for this trend, but your not quite sure if you really like it. The one from target would really be a better choice, especially if you don't have a lot of money and are on a budget.


Hope this helped to all the teens that have the same problem as I do...

5 styles I am tending to

http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12763601/?claim=n3mmw3a28sw">Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I always find myself adoring many different types of styles and I can never decide which type of style is mine. It will probably take many years untill I have really completly found my style. So I am introducing many of my favorite styles, that I think I am tending to. Does anyone feel the same way? Like everybody knows what their own person style is and I am the only one not sure about it.

1. Urban Style

  

I am totally inlove with this style, because it is so casual, edgy and it really gives off a laid-back city vibe, defenitly think that I am tending this way. The sunglasses and beanies, the ripped jeans and simple colors really gives off a urban vibe.


2. California Style



This is a style that can be really daring, with crop tops and highwaisted shorts. The wavy hair and summer prints are really fun, young and innovative. Like always I'm just not sure if I would dare that kind of style, I guess I am to scared of what other people think. Other people can pull it off and if I do it right, I can probably do to.


3. Hippie take on Black/White




Completly adored by this style, I don't think it's who I really am. I may throw in one or two of those elements into my wardrobe. This style is completly edgy and outgoing, it can tend to go into a really grungy kind of style. Its a more daring take on the urban style, it doesn't include as many colors and prints.

4. Real Edgy




The flanel, black leather jacket and beanie style has really got me inspired. I wouldn't go full out, but throw in some elements of it would really give an edgy vibe to my outfits. It can really look cheap, if you combine it wrong. But if you take the right twist on it, than it an still look really stylish and simple.

5. Streetstyle




Hope to once conquer this style and really dare to do this. It's really unique and outgoing, I love it. At my age it really doesn't  make sense, still being in school,but when I'm older I really want to get out there and dare. This style has a wide range, you can mix prints, wear socks with heals....you can think out of the box and do whatever you want. It really inspires me.


It may take me some years untill I have completly found my personal style, but here are the 5 styles that inspire me daily, that I look foward combining. What do you think would help me find my style? Anyways, hope you enjoyed this blogpost and follow me on bloglovin for more posts like this.
