It can be expensive to keep your wardrobe up to date. Styles and trends change with every season, and what was in last season usually isn’t in, or at least not as in, the next. The following are four simple wardrobe updates so that you can stay in fashion without draining your bank.
1. Wear classics, and focus on accessories: One of the best ways to update your wardrobe simply is to use accessories. If you wear classic clothing that is always in style, and then make it in the latest fashion by adding accessories in the latest fashion, you will only need to buy a few key pieces, and you will have an updated wardrobe. Buy a few hand bags, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc. in the latest trend. Your accessories will make your simple clothing pop, and make you appear as though you are in the latest style. Also, you do not have to buy expensive accessories to achieve this look. Accessories can often be picked up for fairly inexpensive, and can be worn with a number of outfits.
2. Trendy shoes: The first thing people look at when you walk in a room is your watch, and the second your shoes. So, if you want to update your wardrobe without spending a lot, update your shoes first. What is the latest shoe style? Often clothing does not change as much as the extras you wear with it. Sure colors come and go, but good fitting clothing, that is well tailored, and in classic cuts and colors never goes out of style. So, buy classic clothing, and then change your footwear to match the latest fashions. Shoes can make or break an outfit.
3. Update your outer layers: If you want simple wardrobe updates, one of the best things you can do is just focus on the outer layer of your clothing. Buy a few fashionable or trendy jackets, sweaters, or trenches, and the rest will be hidden by it. The outer most layer is the one people see anyway, so that is the one you should update most often. A few bold pieces that can be worn regularly will give your wardrobe a great updated look without causing you to overhaul the whole thing, or lay out a bunch of cash.
4. Make-up and hair: Even if you are in the latest clothing, if you have an outdated cut, or wear makeup the wrong way, it will take away from your clothing. A simple way to make your wardrobe appear more modern, and updated is to have a trendy hair cut and color, and wear makeup well. A well put together look is always in style, even if the color and cut of the clothes is not along the same lines as the latest runways in big fashion capitals.
Wardrobe updates do not need to occur with every season change, you just need to stay on top of the extras, and make sure that you buy classic style clothing that will withstand the test of time.
