2. Buy Items That Stay Intact

Sometimes spending a bit more on clothing items is acceptable, as generally pricier clothing  means that it is better quality. Therefore, this allows you to save money as you will not need to spend more on replacing those clothing pieces that just fall apart within a year. It is also important to remember that if you are buying an item with a more pricier brand, ensure that it is within reason that you are buying it, and think about what outfits you can wear it with as this can make you more sustainable with your outfits. A tip is to create a wardrobe capsule as this will allow you to vision what pieces of clothing you already have from your wardrobe you can wear with them and create as many outfits as you can. This will help you to save your money, rather than break it all on a designer item as you can wear it multiple times.

Don’t be afraid to invest in some designer brands, as long as they are reasonable investments.  Invest into top quality designer brands such as Katherine Millen, Coach, Ted Baker and Michael Kors.

3. Dont Sacrifice Your Comfort

We have all heard of the saying ‘beauty is pain’ but it is time to scarp that because comfort is vital. being comfortable in your outfit allows you to feel more confident, which shows through and can be enough to make a statement. The constant uncomfortable feeling is not ideal if you are trying to dress to impress. We recommend if you are going to wear heels to stick with heels that give support for the ankles, such as Charles and Kieth that have versatile stylish heels that provide support.
