Oh fall, the layers, colours, sunshine and crisp air. This Fall OOTD came in under $40! Which is a great deal. I discuss thrift store clothing a lot. I am a HUGE fan, but there are many other affordable options to update your fall wardrobe without breaking the bank. Below are 5 options to shop when on a budget.
options for refreshing your fall wardrobe on a budget
- Clothing Swap – A great way to get together with your girl friends for an afternoon, plus you can update your wardrobe for free. I thought I had a post about clothing swaps but couldn’t find it, so will post something in the new year.
- Consignment Stores – There are consignment stores in every neighborhood in Vancouver. They are good for two reasons, one you may be able to sell some items which will help with your wardrobe and two they have brand name items at a significant discount.
- Thrift Stores – I know the thrift store is not for everyone. If you like thrifting go for it. If it makes you cringe, there are many other alternatives. A great option if you are on a budget but want to update your wardrobe.
- Blogger Sales – A few of these have popped up recently. Shop the blogger closet events. It makes sense, we are all creating so much content everyone has items they no longer need or fit in their wardrobe. Follow a few local bloggers that feature fashion content, that’s probably the best way to hear about such events.
- Online – This is a little less sustainable as most affordable items are fast fashion or low quality but shops like Nordstrom Rack, Ever Lane and thredUp would be good alternatives.

Pretty great price for a fall outfit. You can see how much a clothing swap can save you. Especially if you are lucky enough to score a jacket! The clothing swaps I have been to had really nice items. We can all admit purchasing clothing in haste or the wrong size or not liking it when home. Those are the pieces at a clothing swap.
Whether you have a large shopping budget or a small one, being conscious of where you are shopping and how much money you are spending is always a good thing. I might love a sweater one fall and the next can’t stand it. Shopping for affordable pieces that are high quality gives me peace of mind. If I fall out of love with a sweater, consigning it or taking it to a clothing swap is not a big deal. I am looking for my next favorite fall piece.
