It’s a suppose stress reliever and a hobby to many, so there shouldn't have to be any planning or being extra strategic about selecting the next piece of clothing to add to your wardrobe.
Sadly to say, there is planning involved even if it’s a hobby or a bypass time to relieve stress especially if you want your closet to look a certain way. For me I like to dive into my closet knowing that every single piece coordinates in some way and even if I’m on a budget, what I wear doesn’t have a bold imprint of cheap written across.
I enjoy the satisfaction knowing I didn’t spend a million bucks in order to curate a stylish wardrobe that still speaks about my personal style. So if that’s what you’re all about as well, the you’re in luck! I’m sharing some of the tips that I consider when I do my rounds of shopping to find affordable fashion pieces that despite the budget friendly price tag, still looks expensive and high quality like.
1. Structure- silhouette, lines, clear cuts
Very nicely shaped and structured gives off the impression of a well made item.
