Freeport A’Famosa Outlet: 4 Tips For Shopping on A Budget

To be stylish and fashionable you don’t need to splurge much on expensive outfits to achieve a look that will make heads turn. Best to shop on a budget and yet be able to snag clothing pieces that you can actually mix and match.

During my recent fashion adventure at Freeport A’Famosa Outlet, I was given a challenge to shop for clothes with only RM 350 budget on-hand and come out stylish .

I was able to come up with this look for only RM 115 and won as “The Most Stylish Blogger“.

While shopping at Freeport A’ Famosa I only had few things in mind and those are what I applied as I went clothes hunting, so I was able to buy a lot of garments and yet not go over the budget allotted to me.

Here are my tips for shopping on a shoestring:

1.Choose the right location

Shop at vintage stores or factory outlet shops like the ones found at Freeport A’Famosa Outlet and get cheaper items compared to the ones in the mall.

2.Watch out for Sales

Wait for discounts, sales and great deals. You get high quality outfits at a cheaper price. Freeport A’Famosa Outlet shops have tons of items on sale!



3.Choose the Classics, then Mix and Match

Invest on staple classic outfits that you can mix and match later. Such as:

  • sunglasses
  • black scarf
  • white button down shirt
  • jeans
  • hats

4.Select quality outfits

If you’re buying an outfit check the quality, recognize the condition and class of the item. Go for cheap price tags but not on cheaply made items. Freeport A’Famosa Outlet houses popular fashion brands that are known for their quality such as Forever 21, Cotton On, Esprit, Nike, etc.

At the end of the day, it’s not about the price tag, be practical! Being stylish depends on the person wearing the outfit and how you carry yourself. Wear your style loud and proud.
