Upgrading your wardrobe doesn’t always come cheap. But the good news is that whether you have lost weight and no longer fit into your old clothes, need to replace clothes that are old and worn or are simply getting tired of your current wardrobe and want some outfit upgrades, there are plenty of great ways to save money on fashion. The key here is shopping around, looking for deals and offers, and being open-minded about what you buy in order to take advantage of savings and potentially find a new style. Here are some ideas to keep in mind when buying new clothes, to help you save money. 

Use Coupons:

Spending some time to look for coupons that you can use to get money off the new clothes you buy is a great way to save money, and very easy too. Fashionable attire doesn’t have to be expensive, and you can save even more money by using a coupon aggregator tool that will search the web for you to help you find money-off deals from your favorite fashion brands. You can often find coupons to use when buying clothing either online or in-store, so there are plenty of options available whichever way you prefer to shop.

Buy Second-Hand:

The rise of the fast fashion industry means that there are more clothing items floating around than ever before. And, one of the best parts for you is that many people buy items of clothing and only wear them a few times before moving onto something new, meaning that you can often snap up second-hand fashion steals and get clothing that’s almost brand new at a fraction of the price. Check out selling apps like Depop or get on eBay to find preloved clothing that you can add to your wardrobe for less. 

Sell Your Old Clothes:

The best way to make money for your new wardrobe and make the actual room in your wardrobe for all those new outfits is to sell your old clothes. You can create an account on a popular fashion selling site like Depop or put your clothes up for sale in bulk on sites like Facebook Marketplace to make quick cash. Some places will also allow you to sell your clothes to them by weight but bear in mind that this option will probably make you the least money. Selling your clothing items one at a time might be a more time-consuming option, but it will definitely pay off. 


Recycling your old clothes is a great way to get some new fashion pieces without spending a penny, and the good news is that you don’t have to be an expert on the sewing machine to do it. For example, you can easily turn an old pair of jeans into a new pair of shorts by cutting them off, or you could tie-dye an old, plain t-shirt to give it a new lease of life. Before you throw any old clothes away, consider whether there’s anything new you could do with it to turn it into something different. 

Organize a Swap Shop:

If you have friends and family members who wear the same size as you, and you’re all looking for new things to wear, why not organize a clothing swap shop? All you need to do is get everybody to bring the clothing that they no longer need and you can swap items with each other if you find something that you like. It’s a fun way to get new clothes for nothing and you can turn it into a fun, girly day too. 

When it comes to getting a new wardrobe, there’s no need to spend tons of money – keep these ideas in mind and get your new looks for less.
