Everyone has their own idea of the 'perfect wardrobe', and this proves true whether you're into trendy and preppy looks or bold and alternative styles. After all, one of the easiest yet most creative ways we can express our individuality is through the way we dress.
But as we enter new stages in our lives, like leaving university life or making a career move, refreshing our wardrobe becomes less a luxury and more a necessity.
So if you've reached that point when you want (and need) to curate your wardrobe your way, we've got just the tips on how you can work your way through that first big fashion investment.
Create a list of staples
Always start with taking note of what you are shopping for. Is it for job hunting? Should it be flexible for any career? Or is it a way of treating yourself and revamping your personal style? No matter what you're aiming for, make sure you know exactly what you both need and want and try to think of pieces in general — not brands. This way, you can picture what you want your wardrobe to look like and what ensembles you can create.
Divide your list into sections
Once you have everything listed down, you can start weighing which pieces you need the most and what can be set aside — at least for a while. This step will significantly help you once you start planning out your budget.
