Got A Closet Full Of Trendy Clothes? Watch Out!
You just bought a pair of Ugg boots to go with your hip hugger jeans and trucker cap. And that?s not all. You scour the fashion magazines for the latest trends, then go running out to fill your closet. Trendy is good, right?
Uh, not so fast. Keeping abreast of the trends in fashion is essential to not looking outdated, but having a closet full of trendy clothes can quickly turn into a big waste of time and money, unless you?re Paris Hilton. Maybe Paris can afford to buy and discard clothes like candy, but the average woman needs a wardrobe with some staying power.
All the fashion experts agree that you should build your wardrobe around classic pieces like: blazers, tailored suits, neutral bottoms and tops. Classic clothing lasts for years and is very versatile.
On the other hand, trends come and go. Those Ugg boots you just bought along with the trucker caps are already passť (according to fashionistas in the know). You can either give them away to Good Will or keep wearing them because you really like them.
Trends in fashion are very fickle: some last a long time, while others fizzle in a single season. Because of this, it?s almost impossible to keep up with every single trend. For practical reasons, you should pick a few trendy pieces ? that look flattering on you ? and add them to your wardrobe.
When the trend is over, discard them or defiantly wear those trendy clothes whenever you like. As long as people aren?t laughing at you in the streets, who cares?
Just remember not to overdo it. You don?t want to have to replace your entire wardrobe every time a new trend comes out ? unless you?re an heiress with money to burn.
