Wardrobe Buying Guide for the Practical

This is another article I got from Kerygma November Issue. It’s so timely that I can’t help the urge to share it to everyone else. Here it goes.

With the economic condition being what it is, what is worth spending for or buying on the cheap side? Here’s the guide to buying various wardrobe items:

  • Jeans: Spend. You can wear jeans everywhere so splurge on one or two good pairs. It should have the right amount of stretch, has an attractive dark wash and should fit better than a cheaper pair.
  • T-shirt: Save. Because you wear them close to your skin and wash them more often, they don’t last long. Choose one that has a good fit and that doesn’t look flimsy – which you can buy at low price.
  • Trendy Items: Save. Why overspend on fashion that will be gone in a few months’ time? There are some fashion, however, like nautical-inspired clothing, that will come around again and again which you can spend on.
  • Work Shoes: Spend. You need a good quality pair that will withstand daily use. Higher prices mean higher-quality elements, like soft leathers that breathe, good cushioning and top craftsmanship. Choose comfortable hell heights and classic styles.
