The holidays may be over and done with, but all that holiday shopping has probably left a deep, lasting impression—on your wallet. Many of us find ourselves broke after December; it's the inevitable aftermath of the gift-giving season. Still, every girl needs a revamped wardrobe for the New Year—not for the sake of indulging shopaholicism, but in the spirit of moving forward. Out with the old and in with the new, as they say!
In this special edition of Frugalista Finds, we've pieced together 12 complete, head-to-toe looks for 4 different budgets. Each budget features 3 outfits: one for the office, one for the weekend, and one for a party, so you get round-the-clock mileage for minimal cost.
Click through the gallery to see our picks for your Frugalista Wardrobe!
