With her latest hit, Ariana Grande has gotten all of us dancing to the beat of “I see it, I like it. I want it; I got it”. The reality, sadly, is very different. Though we all do match our voices with hers whenever the song plays on the radio, most of us cannot hope to match our bank balance with hers. With hardly enough in our accounts to last us a month worth of necessities, “we see it, we like it. We want it, but we don’t get it.” Unfortunate, isn’t it?

Living on a budget can be hard. But it gets super difficult when you have to walk away from that adorable top in the store because of its ridiculous price tag. You know that particular top was made to be worn by you! You can pull off wearing that top better than anyone else in the store, and it would look banging with the white pants your best friend got you for your birthday, but still, you cannot own it just because you don’t have that kind of money lying around.

Thrifting can have its drawbacks

A small budget is no excuse not to look and feel good about yourself. So how can you afford high fashion on a budget? Getting pieces from thrift stores can be a risky business – you wouldn’t want to end up with a skin disease trying to pinch some pennies, right? Besides, it is a rarity that you find something actually worthwhile in a thrift shop. Mostly, these shops store discarded clothing that nobody else wants; with cheap material, bad stitching, and god awful designs. You are worth so much more than that!

Isn’t it extraordinarily unfair and frustrating when you are a fashion buff, but everything you like in stores is super expensive? There are so many times when you are left wishing you had the money to afford your style. All this bomb fashion sense wasted because of lack of funds, ugh! But just the unfortunate fact that you are not a millionaire (sigh, if only!) shouldn’t keep you from looking your best, right? Rich people are not the only ones who should get to look glamorous! Being on a shoestring budget should not stop you from flaunting your unique personal style!

Fortunately, looking great does not mean you have to drown in debts or choose between your lunch and that Gucci handbag. By following a few tips and tricks, you too can look as stylish as Ariana, and without throwing away precious bucks. To assist you with looking like you have just walked off of a runway while not racking up debts against yourself, we have prepared a list of affordable, trending items that can make you stand out in the crowd.

Shop the classics

 

shop the classic

A great way to save up on those precious dollars is buying a few staples to add to your wardrobe. Investing in a few trendy, basic pieces is the best advice we can give to a fashionista with challenging funds. These pieces, like this biker style leather jacket at Leather Skin Shop, can prove to be a onetime investment that is sure to last you for a very long period. Biker Leather jackets have been a part of every fashionable man’s wardrobe since the 1900s, and they are not planning to go anywhere anytime soon either. Priced only at $199, this piece of outerwear will keep you up to date with fashion on a budget.

Let your feet do the talking

Ignoring your footwear when picking out an outfit that makes you look like a winner is a grave fashion mistake. This season, I would recommend tan men’s Chukka boots to include in your wardrobe. Brown is an often overlooked color which can enhance your entire look so well. Why the Chukka boots are such an excellent investment is because these can be dressed up and down, both. Pair this $199 army inspired commando soles (which combine high functionality with the best style) with a slightly oversized sweater and dad jeans for those colder evenings to look casually chic. For a smarter casual look, pair it with slim suit trousers and a dress shirt.

 Accessories can go a long way

Wearing a hat is a great way to add a unique touch to your style. Accessories work so well at showing off your individuality and creativity. To get that country aesthetic, incorporate this classic leather cowboy hat in your outfit. Costing only $99, this will surely prove to be a great addition to your wardrobe.

 Our chic backpacks have got your back

Trust us, and there is nothing that can make you look more dapper than a small, cute leather backpack. Ladies, you do not have to cry about the impractical, tiny pockets on women’s jeans anymore, that will not even hold a cell phone. With these affordable, contemporary backpacks, forget all your troubles of keeping your personal belongings safe and secure. This elegant backpack is priced at only $39.99 at the Leather Skin Shop.

Avail the sales at Leather Skin Shop

 

A smart shopper buys her wardrobe when the products are cheap. If you want to appear fashionable without overspending, keep your eye open for sales and discounts at your favorite stores. From the current sale at Leather Skin Shop, you can find really cute and practical handbags (like this one, currently costing only $39.99) that will give you the desirable sophisticated air of someone who has their entire life worked out. What’s more, now you can afford the best of fashion on a budget, with the free shipping at Leather Skin Shop.

There are millions of ways you can stay on top of the fashion game while being short on cash, only if you are willing to get a little creative and commit to the cause. Fashion on a budget is no longer an abstract concept. With these tips and products from Leather Skin Shop, you can now strut your way in life while looking sexy and on top of all the changing trends!

Maybe the dim lighting made the puke green skirt look like a dazzling, emerald color. Or perhaps you discovered that the pair of jeans you got is not an original Roberto Cavalli product.

Leather has the unique potential to be accommodated in every look that you are trying to pull off while also accelerating it. But sometimes, adding a leather product into your outfit of the day can actually dampen your look instead of lifting it up. This happens when your favorite leather clothing has become crumpled up and does not look its best.
