Holiday season is in full swing and everybody seems to be jetting off here, there and everywhere for a week or two on the golden sands of an exotic country. Every year we dream of these summer months when sat in the office; the weeks where we can relax carefree with a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other. It’s no secret that holidays are expensive and it’s an unwritten rule that any holiday requires a brand new holiday wardrobe. The items bought are likely to be only worn on holiday as our British climate just doesn’t allow for bikinis and beach dresses all year round, unfortunately. So here’s some tips for buying a holiday wardrobe that won’t break the bank and leave some extra cash for the much needed winter coat in months to come.
Work Out Which Wardrobe Essentials It’s Worth Splashing Extra Cash On
When buying your holiday wardrobe, you’re going to need the essentials such as t-shirts, shorts and socks. In order to save yourself some money, use to understand whether it’s worth spending more money on an item or buying it cheaper, depending on how long it will last in terms of general wear and tear. Usually shorts will last longer than socks, so spend more on a high quality pair of shorts and less on some basic socks.
Be Savvy in the Sales
There are various times during the year when sales are on, and the summer sales are a big one. These usually take place in high street shops and online from July to September, with items getting even cheaper towards the end of September when the summer season is over. Always check the sales first for any holiday wear, and be extra savvy by shopping for next summer in this year’s end of season bargains. Trust me, you’ll save a lot of cash.
Recycle Your Current Clothes
Don’t feel like you have to buy everything for your holiday wardrobe. A great way to save some money but still have plenty to wear is to reuse clothes from your last summer holiday, or even better, recycle your current clothes and make them summer suitable. If you’ve got an old pair of jeans that won’t last till the winter, get doing some and cut them down into a brand new pair of shorts. You don’t have to be a pro to make yourself a great new item for your summer holiday.
If you’re still struggling on a tight clothing budget along with paying for your fabulous holiday, don’t panic, will ensure that your summer goes as smoothly and comfortably as possible.Once you know the ways to buy a great holiday wardrobe on a budget you’ll be set for life, and will look incredible on all those sun kissed holidays to come.
