You can’t keep buying new clothes every time when fashion changes, that’s not very practical seeing that the clothes aren’t always cheap.

Take your boring white T-shirt or blouse, for instance, add a leather corset or a wide gold waist belt, to update the boring look of your basic white garment. You can do the same thing to a plain black dress, by adding gold, silver or bronze thick wide belt.
A boring and outdated dress or outfit can look fashionable with the right accessories. Colors, animal prints as well as leather dangling earrings are in fashion now. If you incorporate these in your outfit, your dress will go unnoticed. Understand the importance of accessorizing. You can easily hide flaws and enhance the beautify of any dress with the right accessory.
The thing that messes up your budget more than anything is buying clothes that you may never wear. You bought the dress because it was cheap, but if you aren’t going to wear it, then your money went to the trash. Buy things you know you are going to wear, even if they are a bit expensive, they will cover the cost when you wear it more than thrice.
