4. Only shop perfect fits
This falls in the same category as ‘quality over quantity’. If a garment doesn’t fit quite right or doesn’t feel that comfortable to wear, then don’t purchase it. Odds are that you won't wear it that often - what a waste! Your budget is better spent on an item that’s perfect on all levels and has the potential to become a new wardrobe favorite.
5. Determine a clear color palette
Most of us automatically have a preference for certain colors – visualizing your favorite colors in a collage or mood board is a great way to get a better sense of your personal dress style. The effect is similar to making a wardrobe shopping list: it creates more focus which reduces the chance of impulse buys you’ll regret later. Assemble a base palette of 4 colors max, that you always feel comfortable in, and complement with a maximum of 2 trend colors for variety during the season. Tip: take a picture of your collage with your phone. This way, you’ll always have your mood board at hand when you go shopping.
