Ways To Spend Less On Clothes

Every season brings new fashion trends and with fall around the corner, you are probably thinking about snagging a few key pieces to update your current fall wardrobe, but you would probably go broke if you tried to keep up with every single trend (no matter the season)! The good news is, you can keep your fall wardrobe fresh by changing your mindset about shopping. Here are a few tips I live by when it comes to keeping my wardrobe current and these tips will save you time and money without sacrificing style:

Not All Trends Are Must-Haves – Before you start shopping, remember that not all trends are must-haves, and what may be a must-have for someone else may not necessarily be a must-have for you. Do some window shopping and try a few trend pieces on, then go back to your closet and assess what you have before actually investing in something new and only buy trend pieces that truly make you feel good when you try them on, and that you can envision wearing in the future.

Hold onto Your Classics – You may be tempted to toss that extra blazer or button-down shirt, but before you send it to the donations pile, figure out whether you can revamp it to feel more current for the season. Classics are called classics for a reason because they always come back in style at some point. So, unless you don’t fit into the piece anymore or you really can’t reimagine it as a part of your current look, hold onto it.

 Figure Out Your Core Pieces – What are the pieces you constantly wear on repeat for fall? Chances are, they are the ones you feel truly comfortable in, and can easily be worn with an array of trendier items. When you shop, only buy new pieces that complement your core pieces because that guarantees you will wear them regularly.

Build a Solid Foundation – If you don’t have a set of core fall pieces, this should be your starting point when you shop. Some fall core pieces I turn to are long sleeved tunic style shirts, a great pair of jeans (maybe 2), leggings (black & brown), a versatile dress and a casual blazer that pairs with everything. From there, I can add a few must-have trend pieces that complement what I already have.

Invest in a Tailor – Having a good tailor will change your life! So, before you splurge on a new outfit for fall, look at the pieces you already have and figure out whether you can rework them with a tailor to fit your current tastes. It’s amazing what a slightly different hem or waistline adjustment can do.

I hope these tips helps you to get your fall wardrobe together and ready to wear because that first leaf is changing color and getting ready to fall from the tree and until next time, stay happy, healthy and beautiful.
