No one likes wasting money. Especially when it comes to fashion. With so many IG boutiques and stores that you can shop from, how can you make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck? Well, you can’t be absolutely sure but here some ways that you can be wasting you money on fashion.
Buying clothes that you HOPE to be able to fit later. Although, that KETO diet you’re on may be working wonders, don’t go out and buy a bunch of clothes you plan on wearing after you reach your goal weight. That is a waste. Simply because even if it does fit your new size, that doesn’t mean that it will look good on your new silhouette or body type. Just wait until you reach your goal weight. That way, you will be able to try it on to make sure it looks good on you.
Buying something just because it’s cheap. Just because something is on sale or dramatically marked down, doesn’t mean that you should buy it. Most times, these items, end up in the back of your closet with the tags still hanging on them months from now. Whether the price is reduced or not…make sure it is something that you will want to wear.
Buying something that is too trendy. Super trendy items will be in style for a very short period of time. You’re lucky to be able to wear it twice while it is still in style. Pieces that are super trendy are fun to look at it, but I wouldn’t waste my money on them.
Buying t-shirts with sayings that aren’t timeless. Who doesn’t a love a good tee?? There is no waste in buying a tee shirt with a timeless saying like, Fearless Women. But buying a tee that has a saying like, Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself, well, that saying won’t be timeless. It indicates a certain period of time and will end up being a sleep shirt or something you use to dust off your furniture. When it comes to graphic tees, keep it timeless.
Buying thin leggings. Leggings are a must have. Now, I don’t agree with them being worn as pants (because they are not pants). However, they are perfect for working out, laying around the house, or running to the grocery store with an oversized tee. When you buy those leggings that are so thin that they show your panties and everything else you have under them are a complete waste of money. The more you wash them, the thinner they will become. Not to mention the holes that will appear. Have you ever been behind someone wearing a pair like this and thought, “Does she know they are completely see through??” Don’t be that person. Make sure they are at least thick enough to camouflage your goodies.
Spend your money on pieces that will stand that test of time, that you will want to wear over and over again. Otherwise, you’re throwing money down the drain. Plain and simple. Invest in your fashion choices. Don’t waste your money on fashion. Especially at a time like now when you need to be making the best choices with our money. Thoughts on this list?

Stay Fearless 💋
