70 percent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes. 30 percent should be icing and fluff—that's color, pattern, shine, accessories. Too many women get the proportions the other way round, then can't figure out why they can't get dressed.
Take a look at your closet, and figure out if you have enough meat and potatoes. Do you have enough basic black pants for work? Or a pair of nice dress shoes that will go with virtually everything? Figure out a list of wardrobe essentials suited out for your lifestyle.
2, Figure out Your "Uniform"
Having a signature style is easier on the wallet, easier on the soul when getting dressed each day, and better for your personal style. That doesn't mean that you have to wear the same thing every day. It just means figuring out what looks good on you and what you like to wear—the items that are always in the wash or at the dry cleaner's are a good place to start.
3, Consider Fit and Fabric
What are the pieces you always wear and which are the ones you hardly touch? Probably it's the fit and comfort that makes the decision for you. For fit, clothes should never gape, pull, or fit the person you want to be 10 pounds from now. As for fabric, you really don't have to be an expert. Does it feel good and drape nicely, or does it feel cheap, like the sort of thing that will fall apart in the washing machine after one wear?
4. Watch out for High Prices (and Low Ones, Too!)
Sometimes it makes sense to pay more for quality. However, if you find a great pair of pants for Rs 3000, they are a better buy than the designer pants that cost Rs 8000 and fit you kinda funny. So as long as something is within your budget, price should be a secondary concern.
