How To Be Stylish Under $50

As a college student, when it comes to shopping I have to budget myself. I mean if I could go out and purchase $500 worth of clothing right now I totally would do it but that's just not realistic lol. I love affordable clothing though and throughout the years I have mastered in finding the best sales and getting great deals on fashion. Here are a couple of ways that I maintain an affordable budget while shopping.

1. Shop the sales!! I make sure I'm subscribed to my favorite stores through email so I can be notified when a sale is going on. Gap, and especially Old Navy, are my all-time favorite sale sites. Old Navy is always marking down clothes and sometimes they'll hold sales like "take an additional 30% off already reduced items" etc. LOFT has also been holding some amazing sales recently as well.

2. If you see something you like that's overly priced there is always a clothing store that sells it cheaper. For example, Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots that run around $800. I've always wanted a pair and if I had the money I would most certainly buy myself a pair. However, I looked around and got myself a similar pair from Target for only $30!

I'm also sharing with you guys below some easy outfits you can put together that are under $50.
