15 Brilliant Tips For Looking Stylish AF On A Budget

1. Backwards Shirt

A button down is an essential item to have in your closet. It’s perfect for work, going out, and dressing up or down. Make this shirt even more versatile by wearing it backwards! Leave it open in the back and then knot the bottoms into a bow. You’ve got yourself two shirts in one!

2. Nail Growth

Get your shellac manicure to last longer with glitter nail polish! Nail growth is quite recognizable when you get a shellac manicure, so applying glitter nail polish right on that growth will freshen up your manicure and save you from making many pricey trips to the nail salon!

3. Stain Removal

Sweat stains are so annoying to get rid of, so don’t let them ruin your favorite shirts! Get those stubborn stains out with hydrogen peroxide, dish washing detergent, and baking soda. Mix this all up and let the mixture sit on the stain for an hour. No sweat stains are getting in your way of being stylish!

4. Sunglassses

A new season means I want new everything! Suddenly, I’m not digging last year’s sunglasses anymore. Jazz those shades up by gluing on your favorite crystals. All of a sudden, they became new again!

5. Tight Shoes

I always get so tempted to buy the cheap shoes I see at some retail stores, because duh, they’re cheap! But I know from first hand experience to not even think about it because of all the pain they cause. Blisters everywhere, all over my foot! Now I can finally buy those shoes and make them comfortable by putting on thick socks and using a hairdryer to blow on the tight parts. Let your shoes cool while still wearing them and repeat this until you have a good fit.

6. Chipped Nail Polish

Chipped nail polish? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Seriously, I don’t have time to redo my nails. Using glitter nail polish to cover up your chipped nail polish is brilliant and super easy! Freshen up your manicure in one easy step.

7. Makeup Tubes

Stretch the longevity of your fleekness by opening up what you thought was empty tubes of makeup. Cut your makeup product tubes open and you will find loads of product you can still use. Save your trip to the drugstore or Sephora for another week.

8. Jean Jacket

Bored of your old jean jacket? New ones can get pretty pricey. Stick with your old one and reinvent it so it can become a staple in your wardrobe. Customize your own jean jacket by ironing on affordable patches.

If you ever have the displeasure of having a pen explode on you, I feel your pain. It is a nightmare to get it out; you have to work your fingers to the bone to get rid of the stain. Use your handy dandy hand sanitizer and hairspray to get that mess out! Don’t spend money to replace your top or at the dry cleaners!

10. Blanket Scarf

If I’m cold, tired, or lazy and I’m at home, it’s normal to see me walking around the house wrapped in a blanket. If I want to proceed with my day, I have to part with my blanket, and doing that is such sweet sorrow. Keep your blanket on all throughout the day by wearing it as a scarf. Is it a scarf? Is it a blanket? That’s a secret you’ll never tell. Stay warm and cute!

11. Old Blazer

Want something new to wear, but don’t have the money to go out and buy something? Story of my life! If you have an old blazer buried in the back of your closet, this DIY is perfect for you! Turn something old into something new and create a statement piece you will love.

Vinegar is an excellent deodorizer and will naturally destroys the germs. Hang your sweater to dry and the vinegar smell go away as it dries!
