Jesus wept. VAT is going up to 20%, our wallets are empty due to holidays in Euro-cities and the sales have wiped us out. Plus, next season’s stock is all but ready to drop. What’s a girl to do? Easy, just try these fund-free fashion styling tips. It’s not what you wear, it’s how you style it…
THE COAT AS CAPE
We all know that a coat is a key seasonal purchase, but what if you haven’t got £1K to spend on a Celine topper? No matter, just style it out! Grab last year’s trench/cocoon/parka and perch it casually on your shoulders a la Alexa. Simples.
THE TUCKED-IN JUMPER
A well-documented look at the shows on and off the runway. Take a loosely-cut jumper, push up the sleeves, tuck it into your shorts, skirt or trousers (the fuller the better) and add a coordinating belt.
THE TUCKED-IN HAIR
No jumper? Tuck in your hair! A favourite of fashion editors and posh girls, all you need is long, straight hair and a minimalist jacket/coat/cape.
THE GAFFER-TAPE SHOE
So… what are your no-spend fashion tips?
