Shopping on a budget – a few pitfalls to beware of…

15Aug12

Excessive Detailing
The more detail on an inexpensive item, the cheaper it will look. Keep the details simple and you can always add your own detail tastefully to a garment. Change the cheap plastic buttons for some vintage buttons or quality new ones.

Bad Seams
Pay attention to the construction of the garment. If the seams are uneven or gaping, the garment will never fit properly. If the garment looks badly made, it is not worth even trying on, it will never look good.

Shiny Fabrics
Shiny fabrics show up any flaws more than matte fabrics. As a general rule go for a matte finish with a cheaper fabric.
