Looking to revamp your summer wardrobe on a budget? We got you! With the weather warming up in Toronto (finally!), there's no better time than the present to start updating your closet with hot, weather-friendly pieces.
From finding a staple dress that will get you through the summer season to DIY-ing your own denim cutoffs, here are 8 tips on how to get a killer wardrobe this summer for cheap (we're talking entire outfits for under $50!).
1. Find a staple black dress
A casual black dress can seriously be your go-to outfit for the summer. You can wear it to the office and even dress it up for a night out with a statement jacket and heels. We love how @filipajackson found this entire outfit for under $50 at Value Village!
2. Thrift a vintage tee
If you're going for that effortless, cool girl vibe this summer, try adding a vintage tee with a pair of distressed denim. With some patience, you can thrift an awesome vintage tee for only a few dollars!
3. Add a statement hat
If you're looking for that one-of-a-kind piece that can totally transform an outfit, a statement hat is it. If you're on a budget, try thrifting one at Value Village (you'll also be doing your part in preventing reusable goods from going to waste each year).
4. Find unique jewelry
A unique pair of earrings that suits your personality can instantly dress up an outfit that you already have. We're getting serious #outfitinspo vibes from @taylor_made_style, who found her pair of earrings for $2 at Value Village!
5. DIY your denim cutoffs
DIY-ing your denim into cutoffs is a super easy way to get your existing denim ready for summer. Don't have a pair to DIY? Not to worry. You can easily find one at Value Village and distress them yourself (with the help of some YouTube tutorials!) for under $7.
6. Add a pair of sunnies
A good pair of sunnies are a must for the summer season. If you aren't down to splurge on a designer pair, try thrifting them instead. You never know what designer glasses you might find at a fraction of the retail price!
7. Go for a minimalist white t-shirt
When in doubt, a white t-shirt with denim never fails. You can also rock a white tee with pretty much anything for the summer and look good! We love how @stylemajeur found her white tee at Value Village for just a few dollars.
8. Source your go-to pair of denim
A great pair of denim is perfect for those cooler summer nights. Try searching for pair at Value Village (you might just find your perfect pair of vintage Levi's). With over 6,000 fresh items arriving daily, you're bound to find the pair for you!
If you're looking to update your wardrobe on a budget, Value Village is the ultimate place to go for those awesome finds! And, you'll feel good knowing that you're doing your part to prevent more than 700 million pounds of reusable goods from entering the waste stream each year.
