Today on the blog I'm talking about how to make a good style investment. I’ve got five tips on making smart decisions when it comes to making fashion purchases, starting with keeping a ‘to buy’ list (and not making impulse purchases).⠀
Start by assessing your wardrobe and identify any gaps to start building your ‘to buy’ list. ⠀
You should be specific about what you’re looking for to make it even easier when you start shopping and refer to your list every time you’re looking at clothes (either at the shops or online) to narrow down your search and to stop yourself getting sucked in by impulse purchases that you don’t need or that don’t work in your wardrobe. Keep in mind the colours you want to have in your wardrobe and any ‘staples’ that are missing right now. Be specific about shapes. colours, lengths and fabrics that you want in an item of clothing. For example, I want natural fibres wherever possible so I will almost always pass on an item of clothing made of polyester. I also work almost entirely in a colour palette of white, black, blue, green and burgundy (but I have red on my list to add to my colour palette). If you keep your ‘to buy’ list in good shape and you’re honest about what you really need then you’ll be in a good position to make smarter choices about your purchases.⠀
