How to Save Money While Developing Style

Have you ever fallen for swindling strategies that make you purchase something you really don’t want that’s not for your body type?

Have you ever walked into a store and saw a garment for dirt-cheap? Just because it’s inexpensive doesn’t mean it’s a good deal.

Here’s how to tell the difference. Steer clear of polyester, acrylic, rayon and nylon. Instead, look for cashmere, wool, silk, denim and linen just to name a few. Other fabrics include chambray, satin, silk, and seersucker.

Once you know the fabrics to look for, make sure you stock your closets with these essential items:

  • White button down
  • Little black dress
  • Black stilettos
  • Spanx or Assets
  • Little white dress
  • Khakis
  • Driving shoe
  • Crisp suit
  • Black tights
  • Trench coat
  • Trousers
  • Cashmere cardigan
  • Dark wash jeans
  • White jeans
  • Pencil skirt
  • Shift dress
  • Ballet flats
  • Overcoat

You’re able to mix and match nearly all of these classic elements so they’re worth the money.

Spend the money on a coat, chunky knits, blouses, fur, cocktail dresses and evening gowns.

Save money on jeans, pants, skirts, button ups, lightweight knits, t-shirts and tank tops.

You don’t need tons of items to have style. If you’ve got a few sweaters, t-shirts, coats, tops, pants, suits, dresses and jeans you have plenty.

When you’re building a stylish wardrobe, be wary of the latest trends. Just because it looks good on the runway, doesn’t mean it suits your body type. Dress for your body first.

Then when you’re shopping for clothing, save yourself a ton of money by setting a budget ahead of time and only buying what you love. If you don’t love it in the dressing room, you’re not going to love it later. There’s nothing wrong with shopping at discount chains like T.J. Maxx, Marshalls or Target. And if you really want to stretch a dollar, second hand stores like Goodwill, the Salvation Army and consignment shops, are always a great option if you have a discerning eye.

Shop out of season and look for the basics. If you want to get a steal on a cashmere cardigan, get it in the summer. Need a gorgeous white dress? Get it in the winter for a discount rate. Shop counter intuitively.

Finally, invest in a tailor. They’re worth every penny to get a garment to fit your body perfectly.

Why do this? Because you’re a knockout.
