Maximizing Your Wardrobe and Your Wallet

Attention Fashionistas! This season is all about mixing and matching prints and colors which can be tricky. As we all know, following and keeping up with the seasons' hottest trends can get expensive which is why it's important to save money while maximing your closet. A great way to get started in doing this is to have versatile and classic pieces in your wardrobe. By following this, you are creating endless amounts of combinations so your outfits never look the same. My "One Skirt, Two looks" set is a perfect example of how to create two completely different outfits using the same skirt. I am constantly using my staple pieces and recreating outfits which makes my wallet extra happy. I refuse to buy an article of clothing if I can't match it with at least three items I already own. If you are a compulsive shopper and are the type that once you get home you have nothing to go with that expensive floral jacket, then this is a great rule to go by. So before you go shopping, I reccomend you take a look in your closet and see what would be a reasonable new piece to add to your collection.
