In order to keep up with the latest trends in fashion, consider building your wardrobe around staple items that are sure to be in style regardless of the season. These basic pieces serve as the foundation for your wardrobe, allowing you to spend a minimal amount each season on stylish extras that may only last a single season. By keeping the large pieces of your wardrobe capable of shifting from season to season, you will be able to work on any budget and stay as stylish as ever!
Invest in a couple pieces of trendy items for each season. None of these purchases should be splurges, as you will only be able to wear them for an extremely limited amount of time. Although that designer bag looks like it will be around forever, it probably won’t, so use the money to purchase something a bit more sensible—and something else completely fun! Since many of these items are it now, there is little chance of finding them on sale. Consider shopping at discount stores or buying more inexpensive items, regardless of their quality. Remember, these items will be on the “out” list in a couple of months, so they are not likely to wear out from excess use.
Everyone has those pictures tucked away in the bottom of the photo box. You know the ones…with the outrageous elephant leg bell bottoms, electric colored tops, fingerless gloves, and even—eek—leg warmers! In order to avoid becoming a fashion victim later on in your life as a fashionistas, consider going easy on the fashion trends. Just because super huge hoop earrings, splashy faux flower corsages, and cowboy boots are all the rage this season, you by no means should wear them all at once! Limit yourself to only one or two tremendously trendy items per wardrobe in order to be fashion fabulous instead of a fashion victim!
