The art of mix and match can be a woman’s lifesaver, not to mention an important wardrobe extension. If your purchase power is very limited, you can still indulge in your passion for clothes by mixing and matching. In this way, you seemed to have an endless supply of fashionable clothes.
For the uninitiated, how do you mix and match effectively? The first consideration is the color then the print.
For example, for a great summer wear, you can go for four types of stylish skirts with varying prints. Usually, a printed skirt may have three to four mixtures of colors. Choose four solid colored tops that will go nicely with your printed skirt. Your top may be a blouse or a simple T-shirt. Then buy two pairs of leggings and two pairs of Capri or long pants that will match your top. Stretching your budget to the limit, you may add some colorful or printed top. Now, you have a sizeable wardrobe where your solid color top can be matched with a skirt, leggings or pants. Your printed top will also look great in your leggings or pants.
The key to this is to choose colors that will go together. Whites, blacks and grays make a good ensemble. To avoid looking too somber, you can choose dynamic design and prints using pretty much the same color or hues.
When fall or winter season comes, you do not need to keep your summer attire in the closet since leggings will look great under dresses. The same with your solid tops, which can be used as under layers. During these seasons, you only need to add a few essentials to your wardrobe like a coat or jacket. Pretty soon, you will accumulate a wardrobe good for all seasons.
Another good alternative to spend your money wisely is by shopping online. There are many websites selling clothes a lot cheaper than in malls since they do not need to pay for the overhead that mall shops add to their retail price. Moreover, online shops cater to particular groups of shoppers so it is easy to look for clothes that you prefer. You do not need to spend hours for that perfect white shirt, which is only a click away in your computer.
You can improve your wardrobe with some carefully chosen accessories. You can easily shop online for some wonderful belts, bags, jewelry, shoes and boots. Naturally, every Aussie girl will have her own pair of UGGs.
Many websites have become very sophisticated in their attempt to lure more customers. They make your online search for a particular garment very easy to do. Filling their sites with pictures of their articles as well as a brief description and the price, allow the buyers to readily make a choice.
You may think that online shopping may be a little difficult since you cannot have a fitting. There are sites that can help you with this particular dilemma. They have size charts with measurements so that you can be guided as to what size you should purchase. In cases where the garment does not fit you, many sites will allow you to easily return he item. It is as similar and simple as mailing a letter. You put it in a box and label it as “return” and mail it in the post office.
Online shopping is not only relatively cheaper, including saving gas money, but it saves you time. You do not have to go to the mall or look for a parking space. You can easily complete your wardrobe at the comfort of your home.
