Spend most of your money on basic fashion pieces. Purchase pieces that can work with each other and are timeless. For example, you might start with a typical black pencil skirt, but change the coordinating shirt or outerwear based on current trends.

TIP! Do not buy clothing just because it is on sale. If it doesn’t fit into your fashion plan and is not flattering to your figure, it is not worth buying no matter how good the deal.

Never ever purchase a piece of clothing just due to the price being too good to refuse. No matter how much of a steal it is money wise, if it looks bad on you, don’t buy it. You will end up letting it get stale in the closet and that means your money will have been wasted.

TIP! Sheer clothes are a good option, but only limited to certain types of events. If you select an item that shows a bit too much skin, you will just look like you are trying too hard.

Wearing clothing with smaller flower shapes will take the focus away from your size and make you appear thinner.

TIP! Do not be ashamed of letting your friends know that you have a small fashion budget. They may be willing to part with fashionable items they have tired of.
