Trends come and go, fashions change, and your wardrobe sometimes stays fairly stale. It can be very costly to constantly change your wardrobe to stay up with the current trends, but it can be just as costly to be left behind. The following are four simple wardrobe updates to help you keep your wardrobe in style without spending a fortune:
- Use accessories: If you wear clothing that is basic, and that will stay in style for several years, like a basic white button up shirt, or black A line skirt, etc. You can make your wardrobe appear more fashionable by wearing accessories that are in the current trend. For example, you can wear long necklaces when long necklaces are in style, and chunky ones when they are, and scarves when they are, gold when that is the popular color, silver when that is, etc. Accessories are often much more cost effective then a whole new set of clothing, and can help your wardrobe look current, even if you have been wearing the same tailored slacks for years.
- Buy one or two bold pieces: Trends change regularly. When you want to update your wardrobe, you do not need to buy all new clothes, just a few items that match the current trends. For example, a bold red trench coat, or a pair of well fit skinny jeans are a great investment, and can be word often, with several other articles of clothing, and help you look in style, even if you wear a top or outfit that is several years older.
- Layer: A simple way to update your wardrobe is to layer. Layers allow you to wear older clothing under some carefully selected new items, and give your wardrobe a new look, and layers give the illusion of a well put together outfit, often that alone makes you look more modern in your dress then having the latest of styles. The other benefit of layering is that you can enjoy being able to take off some layers to get cooler, and put some on to get warmer if need be.
- Buy shoes: Shoe trends change just as other wardrobe items change. So, to keep your wardrobe updated, get shoes that follow the latest trends. A pair of jeans from a few years back may not be as stylish as a pair of jeans in the latest fashion, however, pair those jeans with the latest shoe, and you barely notice the jeans. Last year’s jeans with some pointy toed heels will look every inch the updated and stylish wardrobe without you having to replace multiple pairs of pants, shirts, etc.
Last year’s fashions will update with this year’s hot shoes.
The best way to ensure that you can update your wardrobe simply is to make sure that when you do buy clothing that you choose classic and simple pieces that can be updated with simple means, and without outlaying large amounts of money.
