With new clothes harder to come by, and work less secure, you need more clothes you’ll use. And less you won’t.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Ms Blaelock’s Book of Signature Wardrobe Planning says, “we still think it’s important to look respectable when we go out. But we’ve forgotten how to build a practical and sustainable wardrobe.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for buying clothes you’ll use:
- Remember, you’re Cinderella: Work out what the most appropriate clothes are for your life, and focus on those. Whether that’s button-down or t-shirts.
- Buy for Durability: Choose basics in hard-wearing fabrics with “classic” lines that won’t date. Nondescript colours (e.g., navy, brown, grey, black) won’t show stains or stand out too much.
- Be Practical: Buy functional clothes for warmth and freedom of movement. Even better if you can wear them to more than one place for more than one activity.
- Make it fun: don’t just buy plain dark fabrics unless you really like them. Try to incorporate some of your favourite colours and patterns too so you don’t get bored.
- We all want to be the Princess: Allow yourself ONE “good” outfit. It might be crystal studded jeans, or a little black dress you can dress up or down. Try to make it something you will be happy with for several years.
These five tips will help you when you’re buying clothes you’ll use.
