wardrobe aesthetics

Do you want a new wardrobe? Are you looking to add to or redefine your style? Try shopping with us at Uptown Cheapskate. We have thousands of items at a fraction of the cost of department stores! We’re here to help you figure out what you want aesthetically and to help you look fabulous for less!


There’s a reason it’s timeless. Classic is all about that effortless look. It seems to never go out of style and is super easy to keep pieces for long periods of time. Neutral and solid colors with minimal prints such as beige, creams, and greys, as well as black and white are the standard. Jewelry is usually dainty or simplistic. Remember simple and classic is never boring if you know how to work it!


Do you love frills and gardens? If so, cottagecore may be for you! This simple and feminine aesthetic is meant to look as if you’re walking through a blooming meadow and heading into your tiny country house for tea. Prairie dresses, peasant blouses, shirred tops with puffy sleeves, floral prints, dreamy pastel color palettes, ruffles, and lace make up the beautiful dream-like quality of this style.


Streetwear is just how it sounds, it’s meant for the streets whether you’re just going to the corner shop, hanging out with friends, walking the dog, or skateboarding. It’s the best of comfort and style! It’s laid back but is still thoughtful when it’s put together. This aesthetic contains hoodies, sneakers, tees, sweats, athletic wear, and jeans preferably straight-leg. This is a very versatile style that always looks good paired with a hat and shades.

hippie or boho

Hey there flower child! This style is carefree with peace and love! This style hasn’t really changed much with its tracing of psychedelic origins from the 60s and 70s. Think of tie-dyes, natural and bright color palettes, paisley prints, flare or bell bottom jeans, crochet and hand-knitted items, boots, fringe, and suede, as well as jewelry stacked and full of statement pieces. A hint is the more vintage looking the better!


Do you love libraries, museums, books, and the arts? This style is all about elegance and looking fresh out of a classroom. You won’t go wrong in plaids, neutral or muted colors, berets, khaki pants, sweater vests, tweeds, and collared blouses. Pair with velvet hair ribbons, loafers, boots, and simple but chunky jewelry. Don’t forget the messenger bag to carry all your important studies!


Are you a child of darkness? This is all about finding the beauty in the absence of color. Black is your best friend with this aesthetic but super dark colors of blue, red, purple, and green can add a nice touch. Pair together things like crystal or silver jewelry, chains, chokers, lace, chunky or high-heeled boots, heavy metal band tees, and of course don’t forget the black eyeliner, polish, and lipstick!

why support local

Shopping locally has a positive impact on your community in so many ways. Uptown Cheapskate stores are locally owned small businesses that buy and sell gently used brand name clothes, shoes, and accessories. Here are some reasons why you should support your community by shopping local and shopping resale!

Supporting small businesses

When you shop locally, you support the local economy by keeping money within the community. Small businesses are often the backbone of a community and many are owned by women, minorities, and veterans and provide jobs to local people. All Uptown Cheapskate stores are locally owned and operated and by shopping here you’re supporting small business owners in your community.

Finding unique items

When you shop at Uptown Cheapskate, you’re sure to find unique items that you may not find anywhere else. Many of these items are from brand name companies that no longer sell those items. This means it’s much more likely that you are wearing an excellent piece of clothing that no one else is wearing.

Sense of community

Shopping locally allows you to build relationships with local business owners and their employees who are typically neighbors in your community. These connections can lead to a greater sense of community, inclusiveness, and a stronger connection to the place where you live.

Supporting charitable causes

Uptown Cheapskate stores participate raising money for charities. Specifically, Uptown Cheapskate partners with buildOn, a nonprofit organization that raises money to fund building schools in underprivileged communities. Twice a year, Uptown stores have th opportunity to host an event called Charity Fill-A-Bag where all proceeds from the event go towards building schools and empowering underserved communities. For more information about our partnership with buildOn, you can read our Giving Back page.
