Keeping up with current fashion trends can be very expensive. As moms, we love our leggings and yoga pants for around the house. Still, we want to look good when we have the opportunity to get out and interact with other adults. Working parents have the added challenge of creating a fashionable wardrobe for the office without breaking the bank. Finding online deals takes stress out of shopping for fashionable clothes.

Best online deals for clothes

Consider buying used items

People without children can probably find time to search through items at consignment stores. However, parents often find the only time they can shop online is after the kids go to bed. The good news is just because we’re shopping with our devices instead of our feet, we can still find great deals on gently used items.

There are many options for finding used clothing online. One of the most well-known sites to use for buying all sorts of things is eBay, and they have listings for pretty much anything. Their site provides a variety of ways to limit your search, so you can find the size, brand, or even color that you want. The downside to eBay is that the listings will include many outdated items.

Online shoppers can find more recent clothing items for sale on sites like thredUP. If you’re looking for something like a special occasion dress, you can also save money by renting designer dresses through sites like Rent the Runway.

Search for coupon codes

You will be amazed at how many coupon codes are available for pretty much every website out there. Before you finalize your transactions, check to make sure that you do not forget to apply discount codes. A simple search for “discount codes” and the name of the site should yield a couple of different options for you to try.

Try to apply several codes to your transaction, because you may be able to combine a couple of different offers. If you’re having trouble finding a coupon code that works, always check out the homepage for the site. Deals are often highlighted there to entice shoppers to venture further into the site.

Search for trendy, off-brand clothing

We all have our favorite brands, but branching out and trying alternatives can give you the look without the high price. Be honest; no one really looks at the tags on your clothing. I’ve been pretty impressed with the affordable clothing offered on Amazon. They have trendy-looking items for really low prices.

Plenty of other sites offer cheaper versions of your favorite styles. They might not be heirloom quality, but if you’re someone who is continually updating their closet, it may be a good option.

Take advantage of rewards programs and sales

If you are hopelessly devoted to any specific stores or brands, make sure to earn some rewards for your loyalty. Sign up for email newsletters, and you can receive coupons and learn about upcoming sales. Don’t forget about planning ahead to make purchases during yearly sales or special holiday promotions. Some brands and sites that reward repeat customers with discounts you can apply towards future purchases.

Some sites and brands that only offer special pricing on special occasions. You can still save some of the cost by using a credit card with a cash-back or another type of reward program. Any easy way to find these reward programs is by going to Google and typing the name of your favorite online store followed by rewards or loyalty program. Just make sure to pay off your balances in full, or else the interest charges will cancel out your rewards.

Look for free shipping — and shop strategically

Finally, shipping charges are a sneaky way to end up paying even more for your online purchases. Most sites offer free shipping once your purchase adds up to a certain amount. Make sure you’re not paying $15 for shipping, when you could add on a small item and get everything sent to you without any extra charges.

Staying up to date with current trends is going to be expensive if you are an impulse shopper. By being more strategic with your spending, it is possible to save quite a bit of money. The keys are planning ahead and thinking a little outside the box. A little extra effort can help you be both fashionable and frugal.

Do you want to add a few new items to your closet this spring without breaking the bank? We have 11 fashion finds that are all under $50! From a classic baseball hat to super-trendy joggers, these spring style must-haves will fit into your wardrobe… and your budget.

Spring Fashion Finds for Under $50

10 Must-have spring style essentials under $50

1. Classic Baseball Hat

You need one for super-sunny t-ball games… or for super-rainy ones, for that matter. Ditch that old stinky hat that you run in for something a little more stylish.

2. Tassel Bracelet

Tassels aren’t just for shoes anymore! They’re so cute on bracelets and necklaces and fresh for spring.

3. Luxe Bright Lipstick

If you’re going to splurge on something for your spring wardrobe, make it a new, bright lipstick. There’s nothing better to bring some life into clothes that you’ve had for years.

4. Floppy Hat

Good for the beach, for trips to the park and for sitting down for a few minutes to read a book in the backyard (because we know a few minutes is all you’ll get with kids!). Don’t be afraid to go big!

5. Stripe T-shirt

Stripes are always in, but don’t forget to add a new striped tee to your closet each season.

6. Clubmaster Sunglasses

An updated take on aviator sunglasses, these are a fun way to add spring style accessories to your look!

7. Jogger Pants

If you haven’t jumped into this trend yet, don’t wait any longer. Jogger pants look great on everyone, they’re insanely comfortable and, when paired with the right pieces, they are very stylish, too.

8. Cognac Carryall

Cognac goes with everything. Do  yourself a favor and add a bag in this color to your wardrobe. It’s timeless and season-less.

9. Denim Jacket

If you live somewhere that’s warm year-round, you probably already have a go-to denim jacket. But, if you don’t we suggest one in a lighter color to fit into your spring wardrobe. You’ll have it for years!

10. Gladiator Sandal

Always in style and always available in fresh, new styles each spring, a gladiator sandal is going to be your on-the-go sandal for spring.

Three cheers for short coats!

Now that we’ve set our clocks back in preparation for the cold weather seasons, it’s time to get serious about finding a coat that’s not only chic and keeps you warm but also is budget-friendly —  the holiday season is coming up quickly! While it would make sense that one coat could do it all, there is something about wearing a field jacket with a party dress that just doesn’t make sense.

Mix it up, wear your coat anywhere

While some of us will brave the cold weather sans coat in favor of showcasing our stylish party frock, I for one will not be in the party mood if I show up to the party shivering from head-to-toe. Eliminate that scenario completely by adding a dressy coat to your winter wardrobe that will go with everything from sequin dresses and skirts to tuxedo pants and heels. Of course your sequin and metallic coats DON’T have to just be for parties and special occasions. For an everyday look, layer your dressy coat over a plain T-shirt and pair with jeans and loafers for a casual chic look.

Now that fall is officially here, we can all enjoy our pumpkin spice lattes and wear the season’s footwear of choice…boots. Yes, boots! I, for one, believe that no one can have too many pairs of boots. There are so many different styles, heights, and colors, and they can go from really dressy to super casual. This fall season there are three types of boots to keep in your wardrobe: riding boots, ankle booties and dressy boots. However, buying three new pairs of boots at one time, can either set you back a few hundred dollars or if you’re budget-savvy, all three pairs can cost you less than $140.

Here’s a look at the must-have boot styles and how to get the most bang-for-your-buck when it comes to your boots this fall. Happy shopping!

There’s nothing easier than throwing on a dress in the summer. It’s one piece so there’s no fuss, easy to pack for a vacation and can go from day to night with a change of your shoes. However, as much as we love summer, it will be over before we know it so spending a fortune on new dresses isn’t a great idea. Here’s ten perfect summer dresses that are not only stylish but also budget-friendly which means you’ll have plenty of money left over for those wedges you’ve been eyeing.

10 Perfect Summer Dresses (under $100)

 

There are three key dress styles to wear this summer: the maxi dress, the sheath/shift dress and the fit and flare. A maxi dress is easily the most comfortable and universally flattering dress of the three styles. The maxi works great as cover-up or can be dressed up with wedges for date night. The fit and flare dress looks great on those with an hourglass figure and flats or heels work with this look. If you have a boyish figure, the fit and flare dress can help create curves where you want them most. The sheath/shift dress is a nice option for those that are pear shaped to slim you out in all the right places.
