  • Make your cheap look expensive: A lot of Naija guys would rather invest their money than spend it on expensive clothes so, for example, you could take the plastic buttons on a blazer and replace its buttons with heavier ones, which automatically gives a more expensive look.

  • DIY (Do it yourself): Another great way to save money is to learn a few practical tips. Instead of buying another pair of distressed jeans, you could simply take a pair of jeans you already own and rip them yourself. All you need is a blade or scissors and remember; less is more.
