    Need help for in the winter

    Hello, I am fifteen year old and I started reading the fashion basics from this site a few months ago. After a while I got into fashion myself and I noticed that I enjoy the formal look very much. I always loved to wear shirts, but now that I added a tie to my shirts it gave my looks a whole new dimension.
    I now have discovered a bit of a problem, it is getting colder so I need more clothing but the formal look I like so much is really expensive in the winter (no way I can afford a suit, and a blazer is also pretty damn expensive). I need help here! How can I keep my formal look without spending too much?

    *Note, even though I'm fifteen, I won't grow much anymore. I'm already 183 cm tall and it is estimated that I will only grow 3 more centimeters, so no need to worry about that a piece of clothing won't fit anymore because I will still grow a lot.

    Consider second hand clothes.

    Many formal garments are built to last. In the past generally heavier cloths used meant this is even more so. Some second hand vintage clothes have beautiful unique features.

    You can always get the clothes adjusted by a tailor. Try some less currently fashionable cuts - at your age you can easily make something work that older guys (no longer teens) might not.

    I'd second second-hand (n.p.i.) & tailor; something like a corduroy or tweed blazer or a classic overcoat would suit a more formal style perfectly and you can certainly find decent ones in charity and vintage shops without spending a bomb. Also, try Uniqlo's merino wool knitwear, smart and warm but not too pricey.

    Too bad there's no Uniqlo in Holland. But thanks for the tips though, I'm sure I can find something similar to Uniqlo in Amsterdam.

    You can wear sweaters or sweat shirts to look good. Sweaters and sweatshirts look stylish in winter. Hope this will help.
