Fashion Tips For Uni Students On A Budget.

Original post on: New lune

As a uni student, it can be hard to juggle between your education, job (if you have one) and your other responsibilities.

On top of that, budgeting can be much harder! Looking at your income, saving money and making sure that all your bills are covered – I would say it’s a lot of responsibilities for someone who just entered adulthood.

At the end of the month, depending on your situation, there might not be much money left in your account to afford the items that you want.

It’s a struggle that every uni student faces at some point. Buying the things that you want/like while still having enough money in case of an emergency and making sure that all your expenses are taken care of is a dream for many students.

For a student who loves fashion, this situation can be even much harder! That’s the reason why in today’s post, I wanted to share with you some tips on budgeting for (working) uni students who love fashion.

Without further ado, let’s jump into the post!

  • TAKE ADVANTAGE OF STUDENT DISCOUNTS

It would be a shame not to take advantage of the student discounts that are available to you. There are there for a reason! Some retailers might provide a different discount for instance, some might give you 10% off whilst another might give you 15% off so it’s always worth checking it out. Instead of buying something for the full price, buying it for a discounted price is always better.

  • CHECK AFFORDABLE WEBSITES

Just because something is affordable doesn’t mean that it’s not fashionable. Always check for affordable fashion retailers! A great example would be Hidden Fashion which was relaunched in 2017.

You can find tops for as cheap as 99p and get an entire outfit from head to toe for £25 which is a bargain!

They used to have 15 in-person outlets but now they are focused more on the e-commerce side of the business which is perfect for students or anyone who wants to purchase their items online.

Their website showcases their entire catalogue and they do have collaborations with influencers which is amazing.

  •  CHECK WHAT’S IN YOUR CLOSET

One of the common mistakes some people make is not knowing what’s in their closets and buying something impulsively.

Always know what’s in your closet and what’s missing, that way you are not tempted to shop impulsively.

It will prevent you from buying the same types of items as well as not spending your hard-earned money on something that you don’t really need it.

  • CREATE A BUDGET

It’s always good to create a budget for yourself which in this case is a budget for your personal needs and that includes your outfits, accessories, etc.

Ask yourself what’s the maximum you can spend in a week or month while still having enough money for your savings and expenses.

This will allow you to splurge on yourself while making sure that you are not going too overboard.

  • SELL/PURGE YOUR CLOTHES

If you have any clothes that don’t fit your style anymore or that you simply don’t like, sell them! It’s something you should do quite often. Not only will it make sure that your closet has items that you can grab onto instantly but it will also help you earn some money on the side without doing anything.

  • CHECK VINTAGE FOR INVESTMENT PIECES

If you are someone who absolutely adores fashion then check vintage for investment pieces that you can have for years.

Make sure that the pieces you invest in, are items that are versatile, flexible and not something you can only wear once.
