We know what it is like being a poor, broke college student. We also know what it is like when the weather’s getting warmer and you finally have a chance to show off that body you have been working on all winter long. Those long cold days at the gym have finally paid off, and now it is time to showcase your hard work. But like every masterpiece needs a great frame to accentuate it, to show off your body you will want some great outfits. Shopping on a college student budget is no easy task, but it is certainly achievable.
To pull this off, what you are going to want to do is plan ahead, first of all. Start planning your spring wardrobe now. Do you want tops, bottoms, swim gear, footwear- what is it exactly that you are looking for? College students are notorious for leaving everything until the last minute, but this is something you really will benefit from if you can start figuring out what you want now. Once you have identified the categories of clothing you are interested in, start identifying favorite items.
Remember that planning ahead? Now is when you begin to act. Once you know what you want, start keeping an eye out for great discounts and coupons on the clothes you really want. For instance, if you have determined that you want swimwear, Aerie is having a 50% off sale on all swimwear right now. Why would you bother paying full price, or even 75%, somewhere else when you only need to pay 50% on Aerie’s great products? Do you see what we are going for here?
If you have planned ahead, you can take full advantage of great discounts and coupons when they crop up. You can dress well and look good on a college student budget. It is possible- you simply need to do a little homework and plan ahead.
