A week has passed and I hope you have had time to look at your wardrobe?
I had an email from a lady who told me that she had over 30 pairs of jeans, and did nor know what to do. Some dated back to her college days. She thought that jeans never wear out and saw no reason to eliminate any.
No, they don’t wear out, but their style changes, and after many times of being washed, their fit changes too. So, when all was said and done she had 6 pairs left. She is happy with those 6 pairs because, after trying on all her jeans, she is sure that these are the ones that fit well and are not out of style.
Now to this week’s tips, which are:
3. MAKE A LIST OF THE THINGS YOU NEED
No, not want! NEED! – like a new pair of basic black pants, or a pair of light summer pants or a pretty top to go with those jeans you have salvaged from the clean-out.
When you have made your list in writing, put it in your purse and keep it with you. It is important to have it with you all the time because you might not be able to buy everything on your list at once – and who can? This way you won’t forget what you need and you will refrain from buying that adorable sweater that won’t go with anything you own – it will also keep impulse buyers in check.
4. DON’T ONLY BUY THE LATEST FASHION OR FASHION FADS.
If you are on a budget, like most of us, your clothes have to last several seasons. The best investment, therefore, are simple styles. They will not look outdated the next year or even the year after.
Furthermore, simple styles are more versatile. You can change them into a different look with accessories. You will not get tired of a simple (Little) black dress as quickly as you will of a trendy red one.
If you want to follow the new fashion trends, do it with accessories – a belt, a hat, shoes, a handbag, or jewelry.
Until the next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST.
