Bravo! You have finally achieved the physique you desired all these years. But as the wise say, “problems never end”. Now, none of your old clothes fit you, your whole wardrobe is filled with baggy clothes. What are you going to do now? Build an entirely new wardrobe! NO! You won’t have to go broke and buy a whole new wardrobe when we are here for you.
Here’s how you can build a whole new wardrobe without breaking the bank:
1. Tailor Your Clothes
Now, this is a pretty obvious one, go to a tailor and get your clothes to tailor according to your body. Almost everything can be tailored nowadays from your shirts to your jackets, your trousers to your track pants. Finding a good tailor is the real hassle, to be honest. A good tailor is the one who will listen to you and understand what you require. You have to try many tailors to find out the best one.
2. Clean Out The Closet
Now after you’ve tailored the pieces that can be tailored, now you have to do the hard thing. Clean out your closet, you know that you have plenty of things in there that you once wore that year at that place now it’s just sitting there. Analyze your wardrobe and keep what you need and throw out the rest maybe try to make an extra buck out of it.
3. Embrace The Oversized Trend
While I always recommend the perfectly fitted clothing, there is no denying that oversized clothing is in trend for like the longest time. Try to make different outfits using your oversized pieces and who knows if it actually looks really good on you. Try wearing an oversized T-shirt tucked in and roll your sleeve for the extra oomph factor.
This is really tricky to pull off but if you do then you would look like you know your stuff. Layering is all about playing with your proportions to make a good outfit into a great one. Oversized clothing looks really good as a layering prop. You can layer an oversized t-shirt with a nice jacket, or an oversized flannel with a jacket or even a t-shirt with an oversized hoodie or a jacket.
5. Buy Basics
Now that we are done with the best utilization of the old clothing it’s time to shop. Now firstly you should know the power of basics. Basics are the needs of your wardrobe. Don’t go around fulfilling your wants and ignoring the needs. Buy the basic colors, design, and types of clothing first. When you are finished with your basics, then if you have enough you can go and splurge.
6. Shop At Wallet Friendly Stores
You will have to buy a lot of things in order to rebuild your wardrobes. So, in order to get the maximum out of what you have, go to the budget-friendly stores. Don’t start by heading into Diesel and buy a pair of jeans, if at the same price you could have brought 3 or 4 pieces. Your best bets are H&m, Lifestyle, Westside or Max, etc. Go thrift shopping if you can find any near you.

7. Wait For Sales
Now, this is a no brainer but I’ll still say this,” be a wee bit patient”.A sale is the best time if you are trying to buy in bulk.
8. Factory Outlets
Well, you don’t have to wait for sales here as sales are going all the time. If you are looking to bulk shop then do pay a visit to one of the factory outlets.
