There are days when I wear something and for some reason that day it just doesn’t look good on me.  Then I take it off and hubby gets surprised when he finds 3 or 4 pieces on the bed before I find the right one.  As a mum of 2 girls I have observed my girls doing the same thing.  So, in total before we go out we have 9 garments worn and taken off.

Guess what? when we come back from wherever we went we have 9 garments to put back on the wardrobe.

What about in the morning when you are getting ready for work. No one has time to change 3 times as this will result in being late for work. Most likely be late dropping the kids and you would get stuck in traffic at least that would be my situation.

If you have faced the above dilemma I have got Maria Casabene from MTC Hair & Image an Image stylist and hairdresser for over 30 years to help us.

1.You need to know what colours go with your skin tone.
For instance, I would use mine here. I have got brown skin so I cannot wear those light brown colours as they would blend in with my skin. Maria showed me some colours which go with my skin like the navy blues, royal blue, yellow, orange, green but not dark green.

2.Find a style which complements your body shape.
I was like yay Maria I agree with you on this one. There are some dresses which look lovely on other people but when I wear them they just do not do me any justice at all. Apparently, I am a pear shape, all along I thought I was an hour glass. Thanks to Maria to enlightening me on this one.

Know your body shape so that you will buy clothes which suit you well. That way you will save money from buying clothes which you never get to wear

3.Mix expensive with casual
Yes you can mix these up and create a beautiful look. That way you do not have to break the bank to look good.

4.Add pieces to the clothes you have every so often.
Do not wait until your wardrobe is full of worn faded colours before you go shopping. Do this on an ongoing basis. With me I used to allocate a certain amount every time I got paid. I would allocate say $20 and go buy say a top on sale of course. I like to shop at end of season as shops start stocking new season clothes and want to create space by putting on sale last season stock.

5.Look for good and budget friendly fabrics.
For instance rayon, denim, cotton and voile.

6.Take a little bit of fashion and incorporate what you have.
I asked Maria how one can afford to look fashionable on a budget especially if you like to follow the fashion trends. For instance, now low shoulder pieces are trending. Her response was go to the markets you can get these fashionable items at lower prices

7.Less is more
This is Maria’s mantra as she says you do not need a lot of clothes or fashion accessories to look good.  You just need a few good and quality pieces then mix them up with casuals.
