Style on a Budget: Five Questions to Ask Before Buying New Clothes

 
“My clothes have a story. They have a character and a purpose. That is why they become classics because they keep on telling a story. They are still telling it.”-Vivienne Westwood

Fashion has always been widely believed to be no about clothes, but more on creating a specific look that works best for you and your style.

While this might be true, your sartorial ensembles have been one of the most genuine mediums for channeling your inner style in such a way that there are hints of who you are in them. In this regard, clothes are not just merely assortments of variously cut cloth to cover ourselves in but are avenues for expressing ourselves, our tastes and preferences. After all, according to William Shakespeare, the soul of a man resides in his clothes—so, in one way or another, we can infer just how much of a vital aspect one’s clothes are to fashion and style. Unfortunately, while clothes are echoes of your style and fashion preference, this sentiment does not justify your arbitrary and excessive hoarding of them. Sure, we understand that you have a penchant for new couture and a flair for putting clothes together, but if you are constantly acquiring new clothes, you would soon end up in a paradoxical scenario wherein you have fewer things to wear.

It might seem a little absurd to you—after all, acquiring more clothes would mean a more comprehensive set of sartorial options at your disposal, right? Well, not necessarily. In fact, it has been shown that purchasing more clothes would be counterintuitive to your style. Why? More often than not, when we are overwhelmed with choices, we tend to stick to the safe basics that we wear on a daily basis and consequently, our old clothes would be soon be forgotten in the backs of our wardrobes. Furthermore, the more time our clothes spend languishing inside our closets, the less likely they will ever get worn again—especially when changes would occur to our body such as gaining or losing weight.

Should you ever feel the impulse to throw another article of clothing into your shopper’s basket, you might want to inject a little insight into your buying habits and rethink the way you are accumulating clothes. If your wardrobes are bursting at the seams from having way too many pieces of clothing or whether you constantly find yourself buying the latest fashion trend from streetwear wholesale distributors, you might have a hoarding problem. More importantly, if you find yourself constantly frustrated at the lack of clothing choices despite having a full wardrobe, you might want to ask yourself these questions before you buy any new clothes whether they be designer or not:

 

 

1.) Do I already own something like this?

Before you take anything off the rack, it is best if you take a hard look at your closet first. Survey its contents and take a gander at the articles of clothing you already own. By the time you go shopping, check what you are adding to your shopping cart. If it is similar to anything that you already own, you might want to move on and put it back on the rack. However, if you want to argue that it looks like an impressive number, ask yourself if it is really worth the purchase despite having innumerable pieces just similar to it? Do you find yourself gravitating towards the same kind of clothing and splurging on them often? If so, you might want to skip buying this until you have already gotten rid of your old but similar clothes.

2.) Are you addicted to fast fashion? Or do I have a proclivity for shopping?

Sometimes, it is not that we have a problem with hoarding clothes, but just hoarding things in general. Although your appetite for shopping is not necessarily a bad thing, your insatiable lust for accumulating new things is— mainly if this is the sole reason why you have so many pieces of clothing. If you are buying a particularly expensive fashion item, it is best if you took the time to ask yourself whether the designer piece is really worth the investment or whether you could skip out on it. Such as when you buy an exorbitantly priced customized bag, are you entirely sure you can see yourself not purchasing any other bags of the same fashion family in the next couple of years regardless of how cheap or trendy they are? If you buy an investment piece such as a car or a house, you would not necessarily invest in a number of cheaper cars and houses in the next few years unless you are buying them for investment purposes. Apply the same approach when it comes to fashion.

3.) Does this go with my current wardrobe?

Sometimes we buy things without thinking just because they look cute and trendy on the mannequin. However, you should avoid the same approach at all costs lest you end up a closet filled with clothes that do not seem to work together. In any case, before you buy any new piece of clothing, try to see if you can come up with at least four sartorial ensembles that you could see your potential purchase working with. Remember, what you buy should be in harmony with what you currently have in your closet or else, it should be dismissed and returned to the rack. If your new potential piece is incapable of adapting to the existing clothes in your closet, it might be best if you skipped on buying it.

4.) Will I use it often?

The evening gown might look like an excellent addition to your closet, but apart from formal events and weddings, is there any other circumstance where you can see yourself wearing it? Chances are, if you are not constantly attending lavish and star-studded affairs, this potential piece will only laze away in your closet just to have its elaborate embellishments come off. In this regard, your new piece would not be worth the investment and you would probably be better off renting for a prospective occasion instead of outright buying. If you cannot foresee yourself wearing a particular piece over for several and across all occasions, return it to the rack and save your money instead.

5.) Would I still be using it in the future?

Clothes are largely seasonal. However, style is timeless. If you are forking over an inordinate amount of cash for something that is only hip and trendy for the moment, you might want to step back and reevaluate your purchase. Remember, style is forever but the clothes and fashion alongside it will change every season and at times, every few months or even weeks. It is a guarantee that there will always be a new trend to try for every month that comes, and they would soon disappear before we can fully take advantage of them. If you are not opposed to wearing last season’s proclaimed trends and styles, then, by all means, go for it. Furthermore, if you see a particular style, you can wear for as long as you wish without ever getting bored with it, then add it to your collection. However, if it is something that you like only for the time being, you might want to skip on this potential purchase.

 
There is a myriad of things that compel us to make a new clothing purchase: Storewide sales, a new occasion coming up, a hot new trend or basically anything else. However, if you are always beset with sartorial dilemmas despite having a closet well-equipped with an arsenal of clothes, then you might want to reevaluate how you do your clothes shopping. With all things considered, it is best if you took the time to contemplate your potential purchase before actually proceeding to the checkout counter. Remember, clothes play only one aspect of fashion while your style is everything.

Healthy Wardrobes: Definitive Signs You Have Way Too Many Clothes

“My clothes have a story. They have an identity. They have a character and a purpose. That is why they become classics. Because they keep telling a story. They are still telling it.”-Vivienne Westwood

What is a cardinal sign of a healthy wardrobe?

Well, for one it is definitely not a closet that is seemingly bursting at the seams from way too many clothes. It is a wardrobe excellently curated by its owner and is filled with clothes that do not only suit the wearer’s taste and preference but would also be versatile enough to work on any occasion and season. But, as women, we are conditioned to believe that having way too many clothes is preposterous and that there is no such thing. If you ask me, this sentiment has been engineered by clothing retailers and streetwear wholesale distributors as a clever marketing ploy to drive their product sales up.

Unfortunately, we bought into it, and we have long accepted the statement as fact. It has now been an ingrained conviction of most women who have a penchant for fashion that she can never have enough clothes. However, if you are truly a fashion-forward individual, you know where to draw the line between having enough sartorial variety and impulsively getting what is considered stylish and haute couture by purveyors of fashion. If you are the latter, then you need to address the problem as soon as you possibly can. While at the outset having way too many clothes than what is deemed necessary might be something you can overlook, it does not bode well for your wardrobe.

Furthermore, it makes getting dressed in the mornings even more confusing than it already is. With so many clothing items to choose from, selecting just one from the myriad and mountain of clothing can be a bit of a challenge. Moreover, the sartorial ensembles you would ultimately choose every single day would not always be guaranteed to be a success. As you have way too many options to select from day by day, this could be a hit or miss thing—most especially if your closet is a hodgepodge of clothing styles.

However, how can you be positively sure that you have way too much going on in your wardrobes?
Where do you draw the line between an impulsive clothing hoarder and a judicious sartorial collector? Well, take a gander at your closets, observe the contents inside and see if you can relate to any of the things stated below:

1.) You have clothes in the back of your closet with the tags still attached

An excellent way to identify whether you have an existing closet problem is to take out all of the
contents of your closet and check them. If you find clothes that you have long forgotten and are still in pristine condition with their tags intact, then yes, you do have a problem. You might even be surprised to know that you own this stuff and may have forgotten that you thoughtlessly purchased them a couple of years ago. Check just how many unused clothes you have in your closet. If it accounts for more than forty percent of your total clothing items, you might want to reevaluate your shopping habits.

2.) You have more than one closet that is filled to maximum capacity

Your closets might not exactly be large enough to accommodate a lot of clothes. However, all of them are full enough to warrant a justified purging. Although they may not be grand nor are they immensely big, but if you are stuffing them with a hundred shirts and twenty pairs of pants more, then you might as well consider your single closet as two separate wardrobes. In this regard, you would already have at least over two hundred shirts and sixty pants. From there, assess just how often you would wear each item of clothing inside. If there is a chance that you would not even wear particular clothing at least once in every three months, what is that even doing there? The average woman would only wear at least 30-50 shirts throughout the year—sixty if we are being generous. From this number, we can readily assume that the remaining hundred or so shirts in your closet are forgotten and neglected.

3.) You purchase hangers in lots of 100

Who needs that many clothes hangers? Well, individuals with bursting closets do. If you are the type of individual who routinely buys new clothing each week, then you would soon find that you might need more hangers than necessary. For this reason, you elect to buy them in bulk—a definitive sign that you have way too many clothes stuffed in your wardrobes.

4.) You have a dedicated pile of clothes

For a while now, you have stopped storing your clothes in your closet and have now resigned to putting them in a dedicated pile in some established area of your room. It might be that your wardrobe can no longer hold any more clothes and you have resigned to just putting them on top of each other. If that pile exists in your room and you are not just being lazy, it might be that you have way too many clothes to realistically manage—especially if you cannot even identify what is in the pile.

5.) Your regular wash involves more new clothes than dirty laundry

You can easily pick this sign up if you notice you have more new clothes going into the wash than actual dirty clothes. Moreover, take a look at your waste bins and see just how many price tags you have discarded over the past few months. If you have more price tags than actual trash in your bins, then yes, you have way too many clothes than what you can realistically wear.

6.) You buy because it is on sale

More often than not, you find yourself buying items that you would not necessarily wear on a regular basis. In fact, you do not have something in your closets that would go with them, but you buy them in the belief that you will eventually have something that matches with it. You justify these purchases with the fact that they are on sale despite having no real care or interest for them.

7.) You own duplicates of one clothing

While generally, it is acceptable to have at least two colors of one style you find yourself particularly fond of, it is not a practical shopping habit to rely on for every clothing item you purchase. If you own duplicates (and even triplicates) of your closet’s contents, then, needless to say, you have way too many clothes than you can manage. Besides, just think of how you can realistically wear these clothing items in a month or even in year? Sure, they might be in different colors, but it is hardly likely that you would wear a singular style for the entire week. Of course, you would want to change it up every once in a while which leaves your duplicates unnecessary most of the time.

8.) You have stopped hanging your clothes and have tossed them in a separate bedroom in the house or somewhere else

You have finally admitted defeat and accepted the fact that you have way too many clothes than
necessary. All of your three closets are used up and filled to maximum capacity, and yet, you could not find it in your heart to stop acquiring new clothes. So, instead of buying new closets or hangers, you have simply resigned to the habit of placing your old clothes in another separate bedroom. You pile them on top of each other and have no idea of what is even in the pile. At times, you can no longer see the floor because of all the discarded clothes. If this is you, then without a doubt, you have way too many clothes than necessary.

If any of the statements above apply to you, then you might just have way too many clothes and might need to purge your wardrobes from the clothing items that are unnecessary. In this regard, you should endeavor to improve the quality of your clothes rather than its quantity. Start little and work your way up. By admitting to yourself that the problem exists, you might find it easier to purge your closets from inessential items. Once you do that, you are a step closer to a healthier wardrobe and better clothing ensembles.

Shop Smarter: Six Valuable Lessons You Learn When You Stop Purchasing Clothes

 


“Touching clothes is just shopping foreplay, but it is changing. After all, you do not need to try a Mercedes to know that you would like one.” –Natalie Massenet

Women have a very interesting relationship with clothes and shopping for them.

The reality is that they cannot live with it nor can they ever learn to live without it. Considering this, most women would soon find themselves acquiring and hoarding clothes even if the occasion does not really call for it. After all, most of them live by the mantra that you can never have too many clothes and that a little variety would not hurt anyone—at least to the shopaholics anyhow. However, while there is no real harm in buying a piece of clothing or two just to indulge your fancy or give yourself a little reward, hoarding them by the dozens monthly is an entirely different story.

There is a big difference between buying a dress or two for this month and accumulating clothes as each week passes.
After all, you would not want to be too caught up in abusing your credit card, blowing most of your paycheck alone or borrowing money simply to satisfy your sartorial hoarding urges. If you have already been in a scenario wherein you opened up your credit card statement only to find out that you are way too far over what you had estimated, then it might be high time to reevaluate your shopping habits. Your credit card statement should not constantly shock you and if it does, then try to observe where your shopping whims have gone astray. If a significant amount is solely dedicated to catering to your sartorial shopping whims, then you might want to hold back on clothes shopping for a while. In the endeavor of ceasing your shopping excursions, you will find that you would learn quite a lot and some of them can be potentially cathartic.

Here are some of those lessons that you learn during this self-imposed sartorial abstinence:

1.) Shopping Addiction is a real thing

They do not call it retail therapy after all. Regardless of whether your shopping preferences are whether cheap wholesale clothing or retail, you will still inevitably be spending money. It matters not whether the need for shopping is there or not, when you have had that taste of clothes shopping, it can be rather easy to get addicted. Unfortunately, avoiding malls, boutiques and shops would not be much help. If you have internet connection, temptation will creep up to you as an online ad.

2.) You will save a ton of money

It is not really something you notice immediately, and the change can be a bit subtle. But within the first month of not buying any clothes, your credit card statement would look a lot like something you could realistically afford to pay. This would mean more savings for you and resultantly, a meatier bank account. Sure, you may think that the clothes you buy tend to be basic and do not really cost much. But while one or two would not really chip away at your bank account, accumulating two or three every week can easily stack up.

3.) You can spend that money on other things like food

Imagine the times you had to reject your friends’ offers in dining out just because you had spent over your credit limit. Now, that would be a thing of the past as saving money on clothes means that you have more money to spend on other things such as dinners with friends, occasional drinks at the bar or even treating your significant other out to date. While it might not seem like it to you now, the memories you would make and the relationships you would cultivate would be worth so much more than the branded pair of stilettos you buy off of the mall.

4.) You find more fun alternative things to do on your downtime

You will find that actively avoiding shopping for clothes would give you more time to do things you would not usually do. You might even find yourself gravitating towards these things and looking forward to doing them. In actively trying to avoid purchasing clothes, you might find yourself seeing more of your friends or even taking a spin class. Sure, you might argue that shopping can be a social event which you can do with other people as well. But when you are indulging a shopping addiction, you tend to do most of your purchasing excursions alone.

5.) Your love for your old clothes would be renewed

Going on a self-imposed sartorial shopping diet means you are constrained to the things left in your closet. Inevitably, this would mean you have to reunite with the old things you used to never wear. In a sense, it would renew your relationship with your old clothes and make you realize what made you fall for them in the fall place. Moreover, this gives you the avenue to reorganize your closet and purge it of the unnecessary things you might have bought. In a sense, you would be effectively hitting two birds with one stone: Cleaning out your closet and rediscovering your love for your old clothes. Who knows? You might even find yourself having that same panache for wearing your once-loved clothes.

6.) You realize that you have some things you might never want to wear again

Tin the organization of your closet, you will inevitably come across clothes that were once worn by the ghost of former you. At one point, you might have found these ensembles trendy and haute couture but looking at them now makes you cringe. In fact, it might even make you wonder what made you buy them in the first place. Not to worry, we all go through that phase anyhow. What is more important is that you have cleared your wardrobe out of that abomination and made it a point never to hoard unnecessary clothes that are considered to be “in season” or trendy ever again.

 

 

While going on a self-imposed sartorial shopping abstinence can be a little challenging—especially if you are used to accumulating so many articles of clothing in your life—it is doable. Moreover, it is worth every cent or dollar you will ever save. You might not see instantaneous results, but once you do, you might just find yourself never wanting to go back to that kind of lifestyle again. After all, while a girl can never have too many clothes, a girl needs to know her credit limit as well.

Retail Therapy: Five Good Reasons to Shop


“Honestly, shopping beats therapy, anytime. It costs the same, and you get a dress out of it.” –Sophie Kinsella

Without a doubt, shopping has a way of cheering people up.

The act of buying something and treating yourself to some trinkets or clothes brings a feeling of euphoria similar to that of getting a gift you have sorely wanted for quite some time. It would be no surprise that people with bouts of sadness turn to the cathedrals of consumerism known as malls and indulge their penchant for acquiring things through cash or credit. Indeed, shopping has become such an ingrained habit for people who find joy in purchasing things when they want to improve their mood. This has become a constant practice that they often find themselves wishing that it was covered by health insurance. After all, retail therapy costs just as much and as according to Sophie Kinsella, you get a beautiful dress out of it. So, why not indulge?

For as long as malls remain standing, people would always have a myriad of reasons to shop and have resulting anecdotes from their retail excursions. We would often hear scorned women fresh from broken up relationships treating themselves to a nice little ensemble and swear that they have looked better in the dress they bought that they had been while they were in the relationship. However, the act of bringing joy is just one little perk, and as it is, there are a lot of benefits associated with the act of buying little treats for yourself. In fact, it matters not whether you shop largely for wholesale clothing or retail brands—all that matters is that you buy it solely for yourself. So, if you have been itching to get yourself a little something, here are some of the good reasons that might encourage you to do a little splurging:

1.) When you look good, you feel good

There is no doubt that buying stuff makes you feel a lot better. It would not even matter whether what you buy is an assemblage of various clothing or simply stuff for the home to improve your quality of life. The point you are making is: you are purchasing something with the thought of improving your current situation. As a result, you will feel a mood boost and end up much happier. It would feel new and just right. In a sense, you are doing you. After all, there is no better feeling than treating yourself to a five-course meal you have thoroughly enjoyed, or looking at yourself in the mirror wearing a killer outfit.

2.) Shopping is a celebration

In a deeper sense, shopping is a celebration of you–of all your accomplishments and achievements, of the survival of your struggle, of your lifestyle—of you. Having an incredibly long and stressful week at work would make you feel like you deserve a treat—whether that is in the form of treating yourself to a couple of movies in a row, or an expensive clothing ensemble. After all, blowing a little steam need not be so complicated if you just got paid and felt like you are weighed down by so much work or are simply just under the weather. After all, it is not called “Treating yourself” for nothing. If it helps you cancel out all the negative energy that happened during the day or any of the frustrating and upsetting things that have happened to you, then go and shop.

3.) Shopping signifies transition

Buying and acquiring things may seem like a negligible act, but although it might seem trivial, it might hold a larger significance in our lives. It could mean that we are preparing ourselves for new and better experiences—or we are looking to reinvent ourselves. In our endeavors to bring about such a transition, we would need to purchase the necessary items for it. Take going away for college for example; you would need your essentials in order for that to be a comfortable and liberating experience. Whether this may be in the form of buying furniture for your new dorm room or a new set of clothes for you to wear is entirely up to you. The act of buying things may seem relatively straightforward, but in one way or another, we are preparing ourselves—both mentally and physically for what lies ahead of us.

4.) It is a good me time

Unless you are a miserly individual who endeavors to live each day parsimoniously, chances are, shopping would be one of your favorite hobbies. And why should it not be? After all, you get to feel a significant boost in mood and would also have the added benefit of getting the item you want. Shopping for ourselves is a great avenue for spending time with yourself and your money. From there, you can focus on things which we are often told that should not really matter. It is an excellent way to find release and is fun as well. After all, it is not called retail therapy for nothing. By the end of the day, seeing the things you have bought for yourself as after effects or even fruits of your hard work would actually pay off.

5.) It distracts you from failure

No matter how hard we try, there are just some things in life where we would fail. We cannot have it all, and we should be inclined to accept the fact that failure is an inevitable occurrence in life. However, acceptance does not always mean we are happy with the idea or at least comfortable with it. So, to compromise, we find ways to cheer ourselves up. Suppose you underperformed on a particular test or have been through a truly exhausting and try day, instead of imbibing drinks of libation at the bar, you reach for clothes or shoes instead. Not only would it be more helpful to you, but you would also be doing your liver a favor as well.
While shopping may be a great alternative avenue for easing the stress and cheering ourselves up, always remember that like anything in life, too much of a good thing can be bad. So, exercise caution and do not overdo it. Treat yourself once in a while, but not to the point of excess where you are no longer prudent about your finances. So, if you are feeling a bit under the weather, go ahead and give yourself a treat—you deserve it!

Clothes Shopping Guide: What Clothes Should You Splurge On?

“It is better to have fewer things of quality than too much expendable junk.” -Rachel Zoe
“To me, clothing is a form of self-expression–there are hints about who you are in what you wear.” -Marc Jacobs

 

 

One of the perks and greatest things about being a fashion forward individual is the inevitability of clothes shopping. Careening in between racks and stacks of various clothing, selecting which ones that would complement your skin tone and flatter your figure most is nothing short of exhilarating for those of us who have a strong affinity for fashion and a penchant for clothes. However, even our predilection for style needs a discerning eye–after all, how else would you know which sartorial items to splurge and save on? Even style connoisseurs and fashionistas are not proof to buying unnecessary clothing items that would only end up clogging up their closets. While this fashion affliction is not necessarily a bad thing, it can be when your clothing of choice are premier brands that do not see the light of day more than once a year. If you have particularly expensive tastes in clothes, it would be all for naught if you do not even get to use them as much anyhow or would find them outdated after a few rotations of use. The occasional splurge on a clothing item for one event may not be as damaging on the surface, but in order to get the best value for your buck, make sure it is something you can use again and again.

The key to having fashionable clothes you without depleting your financial resources is to be meticulous about which clothes you should be splurging on. It matters not whether you are routinely shopping for wholesale clothing or retail, if you have the right idea which sartorial items to indulge yourself in and which ones you should scrimp on, you will not only have a better closet but a healthier wallet as well.

1.) BRAS-SPLURGE

You might be thinking, “Why would I spend so much money on something that stays concealed all day? What is the point?”. Well, the point here is that a good set of undergarments would make the best foundation of your clothes. If you invested in bras that fit and give you full support, form-fitting dresses and clothes would flatter you so much better without so much as showing a little bump here and there. Apart from that, bras would be something you wear every single day as they shape and make your clothing look even better. Lastly, as bras are something you should hand wash, you can assure yourself that it would last you a long time.

2.) TSHIRTS- SCRIMP

Fashionistas love variety–even if it means just different colors of basically the same articles of clothing. V-neck shirts? Fifteen of that in various colors and three shades of blue. Round Necks? Take seven of that. While the wide assortment of clothing looks excellent on the surface, you would not necessarily go all year long just wearing T-shirts of varying styles and colors (unless that is your style and is a personal statement). If you buy expensive T-shirts and if those are something you regularly wear, chances are you would wear them out easily. Buying a whole lot of them would not bode you well either seeing as you would not be wearing them every single day as we have stated above. Instead, the wisest alternative is to be smart when it comes to shopping for them. Prioritize comfort over style as T-shirts can easily be layered over. Choose soft cotton and bamboo ones which you can readily find in most stores.

3.) JEANS- SPLURGE

There is nothing more fulfilling than having an excellent pair of jeans that fits you well and would last you for years when it comes to fashion. If you find a pair that fits you well and accentuates your curves, buy it–even if it would cost you a bit more than necessary. After all, you can wear this pair forever so the exorbitant price tag is just a minor setback. Remember that when shopping for jeans, choose something classic and do not go for trends that might become obsolete after a number of years or so. Additionally, consider the quality of the fabric as it does matter and would really make a difference. Take note, a pricey pair of stylish jeans might hurt your pockets but it can timelessly elevate your style–no matter the fashion era.

4.) BLAZERS- SPLURGE

Blazers are incredibly versatile and are not solely used for corporate fashion. Considering that they can complete almost any outfit and give any ensemble an immediate touch of class with its addition, it would be wise to invest in an excellent blazer regardless of its price tag. Additionally, it would be hard to come across blazers that are of quality and are affordable. So, if your pockets permit it, get yourself one as it can be worn with practically anything in your wardrobe and would work whether you are at work or for a casual stroll.

5.) EVENING WEAR- SAVE

That long evening gown might look amazing on you, but is it really worth forking over thousands of dollars if you are just going to be wearing it for one night? Unless you are frequently attending formal events, do not go overboard when trying to find an appropriate garb. Choose something that is stylish but not as expensive and just complement it with accessories. Apart from that, a cocktail dress can drastically look different depending on how you accessorize and dress it up.

6.) WORK CLOTHES- SCRIMP

There is really no point in rotating the same number of pieces over and over again until you tire of them which is what would likely happen if you only invest in expensive office wear. Unless you are working at the very top of the corporate ladder, it is best to save on office and corporate wear. After all, it is a lot more fun to wear different and stylish affordable pieces than suffer through just a number of work outfits which would easily get old.

7.) ACCESSORIES- DEPENDS

This is a matter of personal choice, so it would depend on you. If you love changing up your look a bit more often than usual, it is best to invest in a lot of fabulous accessories that would not hurt your pocket. However, if you are satisfied with one statement necklace, a few bangles here and there, then maybe spending a little more on the classics would be more of your speed.

 

 

All in all, when it comes to choosing which sartorial items to splurge and save on, considering which ones would last you a lifetime, are of good quality, you would regularly use are key. Remember, you would not want buyer’s remorse on top of the regrets you will have from filling your closet with items you would barely use.
