“Do I really need it?” That one question that haunts us. Well of course we need it – we’re female! But how about you ask yourself instead, “How much wear will I get out if this?”. Value for money.
One thing I love doing when I’m shopping is picking up an item of clothing, then instantly start thinking of ways I can wear it other than how it’s displayed.
Simple things to think about…
:: Can I belt this?
:: Can I dress it up or down?
:: Can I wear it reversed?
:: Can I layer something with it?
:: Can it convert from Summer to Winter?
:: Will accessories change the look of it?
:: Can I wear it unbuttoned?
:: Can it be worn with pants, skirt or shorts?
If most of these answers are a “yes”, then you better be heading to the counter NOW. No need to feel guilty after this purchase or having to keep it in the bag for a week in case the guilt forces you to return it. Instead, you will feel awesome because you KNOW you just bought yourself 4-5 outfits with the cost of one….. pft, go buy some shoes now!
So here is an example ladies, I found a simple white shirt from one of my much loved shops, Karibu Boutique and styled it with some other basics. The only thing missing was a cropped jumper to layer over the top for those cooler days.
This guilt free purchase (white shirt) is only $55 and here are 5 ways to wear it!
Tied up with jeans and a felt hat…
With short shorts or a short skirt…
With jeans and worn open…
As a dress…
Layered over the top of a dress…
See what I mean? Guilt FREE!
I hope these tips help,
