Your Wallet Will Thank You: 6 Ways Convertible Clothes Can Save You Money
You like saving money, don’t you? I mean, we'll splurge where it makes sense, but ideally, we'd like to save my money for purchases that make sense. Right?
Convertible clothes are an amazing option that have paved their way into the fashion world and have proven to be a hit with budget-savvy fashionistas.
Convertible fashion is great not only because it lasts, but also because it allows for fashion hunters to show off their artistic creativity by coming up with new and unique ways to wear one convertible item.
For example, did you know our Calla Tunic can be worn as a dress, a shirt and a skirt? With sleeves AND without? Yep. SO. MANY. OPTIONS.
In case you need a little more convincing as to why convertible clothes are awesome, here are 6 ways that they can save you money!
1. They’re timeless investment pieces
Forget the days where you raced to the mall every time you had an important event to attend. Convertible dresses are designed to be both casual and dressy, depending on what you need it for. So put down your credit card and opt for that statement necklace that’s sitting in your dresser or your favourite pair of earrings to add some glitzy glam to your look.
Henkaa's convertible dresses aren't just timeless design, they're made of the highest quality fabric in order to make sure that they stand the test of time. Wear it, wash it, twist it, throw it. No matter what, your convertible dress will always maintain it’s beautiful drape and shape and persevere through anything you throw at it.
2. Anyone can wear them, at any time
Convertible clothes are meant to save money wherever possible. With that in mind, our convertible dresses can be worn by anyone at any point in their lives. From size 0 to size 24, from petite to tall, we’ve got you covered. Our dresses are designed to fit all body types, and they drape beautifully on everyone. Don’t bother buying a new wardrobe every time your weight fluctuates, convertible clothes look great all the time!
Growing a baby bump? No worries! Our convertible dresses save the hassle of having to buy maternity clothes and look extra cute with a baby bump popping out from underneath. The stretchy fabric allows for maximum comfort and once the baby comes, it goes back to it’s original shape. If only all things in life were so easy!
Got a kid who seems to grow out of their clothes before they even get to wear them? Our Sakura Junior dress is perfect for kids under 4'11" tall and our Sakura Midi is so versatile and size flexible, mom can rewear and share the same dress with her daughter as she learns to embrace the changes of tween, tween and adulthood.
3. They save you money on your electricity bill
Did you know that clothes dryers account for about 12% of the average household’s electricity bill? That’s huge. Luckily the fix for that is easy, stop using the dryer! Most convertible clothes are machine washer friendly and can be hung to dry. Our dresses love being hung out to dry as it lets their drape dry in their natural position, which preserves their beautiful shape.
By opting for hang-drying your clothes instead of using the dryer, you can shave an average of about $200 off your electricity bill every year. I think that definitely deserves a cha-ching!
4. Travel light all the time
We're totally guilty of paying extra for baggage because we just couldn’t decide which clothes and outfits to bring on vacation. One of our team members once took 40 pounds of clothes with her, because that makes sense, right? Sigh, never again!
Convertible clothes give you the variety of multiple outfits and looks from a single item. Rather than bringing every pair of jeans you own and 10 different shirts, pack your Henkaa dress and you’re good to go! Another awesome tidbit, our fave travel-friendly dress, the Ivy folds up to the size of a water bottle.
Yep, you read that right. A water bottle! Say goodbye to the days of packing 2 suitcases to travel and paying for extra luggage. Packing light is now easier than ever with convertible pieces that can last you an entire week without repeating a look twice!
And with all the discount airlines available now to save you money on travel, you're also restricted with how much you can bring onto a plane. It can mean that you've got to fit everything into a standard backpack for your trip, so including clothing that can do double, triple (and more!) duty is essential. That means more money in your pocket to enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours on all your travel adventures!
5. They're wrinkle resistant
Our convertible dresses are made from our unique Lenaa fabric which is completely wrinkle resistant. Wrap it, fold it, mash it, squish it, do whatever you want, it won’t wrinkle! It’s one of several reasons why they’re such a great option for the avid traveler. Once you unpack your Henkaa and put it on, it’ll be ready to go just as quickly as you are.
Here’s an awesome tip: hang the dress in the bathroom while you shower to let the moisture from the hot water work out any small kinks and refresh the fabric!
6. No alterations – no problem!
Most convertible clothes are designed to be alteration free. Our Sakura and Iris Convertible Dresses come with a raw hemline which allows for easy alterations on the fly. Don’t bother paying unnecessary fees for a seamstress, with Henkaa, alterations are a piece of cake!
Convertible clothes are meant to be as low-maintenance as possible while maintaining their superior quality. Henkaa is no different. In order to save you money in the long run, our products do not need professional alterations and are easy to adjust if need be.
