To build a wardrobe smartly without overspending, follow these tips:

Choose Neutral Colors

There are three shades of grey you can choose from. Light, medium and charcoal shades are the three choices. Out of these three, it is recommended that you opt for charcoal as it is more formal looking and goes great for most events.

Invest in 2 pairs of Quality Jeans

Jeans are a wardrobe essential. They can be worn in most occasions in our daily lives. Being durable, they also last a long time and don’t require much washing as well. Investing in quality denim is highly recommended. As jeans last for long time, you will definitely get most out of your investment.Don’t go all out and buy several jeans. The only two pairs you will ever need are indigo jeans and light or medium stonewash. Indigo jeans are versatile and can be worn in office as well while light colored jeans are great for casual wear.

White is Your Friend

A crisp white shirt is highly versatile and must be part of your wardrobe. Perfect for all occasions, white shirt can be paired with almost all the ties in your wardrobe. Focus on getting the right fit as nothing looks worse than an ill fitted shirt.

Can’t go wrong with leather

Investing in quality leather shoes is one investment you should always make. This is the only case where the higher you invest, the more your return will be. Black shoes are highly formal. Tan shoes are more towards the casual side but can really sharpen your looks. The most versatile shoes on a budget are dark brown shoes as they go with most colors.
