How to save money on fashion accessories

Every fashionista knows that being stylish and following trends is quite an en expensive hobby and adding new items to your collection of clothes and accessories can damage your monthly savings. If you have decided to reduce your budget and spend less on clothes, we have several creative ideas for you. First of all, you can play with accessories to give your outfits a fresh new look and learn to think outside the box and style statement items to create new combinations. Secondly, you can join the DIY movement and make your own accessories from materials such as ribbon and bows. They can be bought in wholesale and, with a bit of creativity and some help from Pinterest, you can create one of a kind accessories that will help you stand out more than mass-market fashion items can. Here are some ideas to get you started.


Belts, buttons and collars

We all have that one item of clothing that could use a bit of oomph. Whether it’s the simple white blouse you bought in high school or a dress that you were so often it’s lost its charm, you can spice it up with ribbons. Invest in a colourful roll of cheap organza ribbons UK and you can use it for various purposes. The easiest project would be for you to take a wider ribbon strand (or use more strands of different colours) to create a feminine belt. Also, you can use small ribbon strands to make a lining for your sweater or dress collars. If you’re good at DIY, you can stick small bows on your buttons. The baby doll look is in these days and you’ll definitely spend less by spicing up clothes yourself than by buying them.


Dainty jewellery with a twist

If you’re the kind of girl who hates wearing the same jewellery as everyone else, you probably dislike what shops currently have to offer. Displays are filled with pretty much the same designs, so even statement items seem quite mundane. If you’re willing to go the extra mile to stand out, but you don’t to spend hundreds of pounds on designer jewellery, learn to create your own necklaces and bracelets. Invest in several unique pendants that represent you, then use high quality satin ribbons instead of metal chain. You can do the same with bracelets; collect charms from different shops and hang them on a black or white ribbon strand for a classic look.


Baby doll hair accessories 

Last, but not least, ribbons are perfect as everyday hair accessories. Replacing your classic elastic hair band with a ribbon strand is not only more feminine and elegant, but actually better for your hair, because it doesn’t damage it in any way. If you have a lot of hair and a ribbon strand can’t hold it, you can wear it as a cute and girly hair band to keep hair out of your face. Last, but not least, you can take small strands from both sides of your hair and secure them in place at the back with a small bow.
