Follow these simple rules to find 10 Ways to be a Recessionista
Split the cost of your new spring wardrobe with your close friends. Make a list of the things you all like then decide who should buy each bit. Then you just need to work out a little rota!
Organise your own swapping party with your mates. Second hand style is kinder on the wallet, all you need is a bag of clothes and a bottle of wine, now that's what we call a cheap date!
Apparently we only wear 30 items out of the average 100 in our wardrobes, whoops! It's time to clear out the things you don't wear and sell them to friends or on eBay.
A sharp new cut or cool colour can bring your look bang up to date like nothing else. A total restyle or splash of the new seasons lippy is a fraction of the cost of a whole new wardrobe.
Scour charity shops, vintage websites and eBay for the latest looks. For Spring look out for anything 80's, candy coloured florals, kimono style dresses and anything with fringing.
A statement necklace can liven up a plain top instantly or try tying a bright skinny belt over your grey winter cardi to give it a spring twist.
