Let’s start by talking “fashion theory” – the basics of splurging and saving, while building a fabulous wardrobe. Believe it or not, there is a method to buying expensive clothes, in order to maximize style for the price you pay.
Kimora Lee Simmons says, in her book Fabulosity: What It Is & How to Get It (amazing book that you should definitely read!), that you should splurge on classics – basic items that you will wear over and over. It’s better to spend on quality and save on trendy items that you won’t wear all the time. And Kimora knows about this stuff – she’s only built herself one of the most amazing wardrobes in the world!
Cost Per Wear
So how can you figure out how much something is actually worth? How can you know the value of a piece of clothing? Easy. It all comes down to cost-per-wear. If you factor in how often you’ll wear a garment, a pair of designer jeans can end up costing you less than a cheap top from Wet Seal! Sounds amazing, right?
