If you are on a tight budget, there are many ways to get quality clothing that will make you look like you paid top money for it. The first thing to remember is to avoid buying something just because it is on sale.

When looking at clearance and inventory at department stores, make sure you try the outfits before parting with your cash. There is nothing more off-putting that a poorly fitted suit or tight trousers. As returns are not probably possible for items on clearance, trying them on will not only ensure you have a good fit, but also that they look good on you.

Consider looking at thrift or secondhand shops. You will be surprised at the number of items from high end brands that you can find at these stores. There are also pre-owned clothing which are real gems worn only once or even not at all. Again, make sure to fit the clothes before buying them as it is not possible to return them.

Stick to the classics so it is easier to mix and match pieces that you already own. Even if you have the urge to go for the latest trends on the fashion scene, if your work calls for mature and proper outfits, then you should focus your time and money on these.
