Planning Your Wardrobe

When buying clothing for yourself, you can save a lot of money by resisting the urge to buy the latest trends and fashions. How many things do you have in your closet that you’ll never wear again because they were out of date after only a year or two? Clothing for men tends to have a more classic look, although even this has changed somewhat in recent years. Women’s clothing, though, is constantly changing with new colors and styles. Nevertheless, it is possible to find classic clothing for women that will never go out of style.

Start out by selecting a few basic color groups, such as black, navy and gray for slacks or skirts. When you add tops, choose colors that will go with all of the bottoms. If you are creating a work outfit, you can add a suit coat or sweater in the same color groups. Likewise, with shoes, pick a couple of pairs of comfortable classic shoes that you will be able to wear with your ensembles. If almost everything you own goes together, you will be able to  assemble numerous outfits with just a few items.

You can finish off the look by adding a colorful scarf, belt or jewelry, which can often be purchased inexpensively at second-hand stores.

Not only will you save money, but you will find that you save time as well, because you won’t have to agonize about what goes together. And, you may have a little money left over to buy that one latest fashion that you can’t resist.

  1. Also finding clothing stores going out of business! Recently our Sears store is no longer going to be selling clothing, so I checked it out and I was getting name brand cordoroys for $5! $200 winter jackets for $30.

    I know this doesn’t happen often but when it does taking advantage of it is definately worth it!
