Serious Question: How Do You Find A STUNNING Christmas Outfit On A Budget?!

Is anyone else struggling with their party looks this year?

Christmas is a time for dressing up, whether it’s for your Christmas party or for New Year’s Eve. The problem is finding stunning outfits on a budget can be hard. No one wants to spend £60 on a dress you’re only going to wear once, not to mention everyone is probably looking at the same dresses you are. What’s worse than spending £60 on a dress you’re only going to wear once? Spending £60 on a dress you’re only going to wear once and someone else turning up in the same one.

Well, if you’re stressing about what to wear, we’ve got you! You can find the perfect Christmas outfit on a budget and we know all the places you should be looking.

Reasons why we love Vinted? It is so cheap and easy to find perfect things in your size. Vinted is so user-friendly, it’s easy to search for something as simple as “sequin dress” and you can filter the price, size, colour, and brands you like to find something you’ll absolutely love for under £10. Plus, if you’re buying something second-hand, there’s less of a chance that everyone who has rushed to buy something new will be wearing the same as you. Look for brands like House of CB, Oh Polly, and old Topshop to see some high-quality pieces for super affordable prices.

Oh Polly

Okay, we hear you–– Oh Polly isn’t necessarily super cheap or affordable. However, you can get a 15% student discount which means you don’t have to pay full price and you can enjoy the higher quality for a cheaper price. You can find stunning dresses for all occasions, especially for Christmas, but maybe message the group chat first before you buy so you can reserve a dress no one else will be wearing.
