How to Dress for the Holidays Without Breaking the Bank

By Shirin Mehdi

Everyone looks forward to the holidays – It is that time of the year when you want to stop worrying about the world and just spend time making new memories with friends and family.  It is also a time to dress up and look your best and that comes with a price tag.

But let that not dampen your holiday cheer because you can look great while spending only a few bucks if you invest in the right pieces of clothing.  Making the right fashion choices will not only curb unnecessary expenses but will also help you save the environment!  Sustainable fashion is all about owning a little for a long time.  So, shopping smartly is a win-win situation for both you and our beloved planet Earth! 

Here are a few ideas:

Wear the worn and jazz it up!
There is a reason the little black dress and that dapper tuxedo are absolute wardrobe must-haves.  You can wear them until they cannot be worn anymore and no one will know.  Styling them differently each time is the key.  Owning versatile pieces will never fail you.

Look for fun separates:
We get that men love to flaunt their suits during the holidays and women are always looking for pretty dresses to wear, but it is neither sustainable nor sensible to do so.  Collecting fun separates over time will save you from the anxiety of holiday dressing.  You can mix and match and look different each time.

Bling is a sign that the holidays are here.  Bring out the best of the shoes, bags, scarves and jewelry you own.  It will help make your outfit stand out, making what you think is dull and boring, more interesting.

Stop lurking around fleeting trends:
Everyone wants to stay trendy and fashionable, but remember that the classics never go out of style.  It is wiser to invest in evergreen pieces that you can wear time and again than to spend on current trends that won’t even last until the next season.  Your style is unique and it is all about celebrating who YOU are.  Stay true to being you.
