Research suggests that the cost of a good quality business suit starts at about $100 and can go up.

With a maxed-out budget after tuition, meals and more, many college students are lost about dressing for success. College prepares and teaches students for the business world. Scholars are taught how to speak, dress, and act in the professional world.  However, many students use the excuse, “I cannot afford a business suit” or “business clothes are too expensive."

However, you don’t have to spend big bucks to dress for success. Thrifting is an inexpensive way to improve your business attire without breaking the bank.

Thrift shopping has tons of amazing benefits, can be loads of fun and can save you money. Stores such as Goodwill and Plato’s Closet make shopping affordable and easy.

The clothes are donated and previously used, but they are still useable items which are sold at a discounted rate.

Goodwill is a nonprofit organization that takes clothing and other donations from the local community, sells them, and then the organization creates jobs for that community. Plato’s Closet offers money for customers' old clothes.

At some stores, clothing starts at $0.50, making thrift prices unbeatable. The thrift stores have old styles, new trends and unique styles for those students who dare to be different. 

From dress shoes to blazers, you can find an entire outfit for less than $10. Fashion made cheaper for those students who like to shop on a budget.
