|Accessorizing your favorite outfits
The clever use of accessories can lend many different looks to a few basic outfits. One tip is to choose shoes, a scarf or tie, a belt, and jewelry in matching or complementary tones, then pair them up in unique ways.
|Caring for your clothes
With the proper care, your clothes will look better and last longer. Always take dress clothes off when you get home and hang them up. Avoid wearing your good things for chores around the house or when taking walks, as friction can wear the fabric and they're more likely to become stained.
|Organizing a wardrobe
An organized wardrobe can save you time when getting ready and help you avoid buying near- duplicates of items you already have. To get organized, start by going through your wardrobe and pulling out any pieces that you no longer wear or want.
When shopping for clothes and accessories, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the selection or get sidetracked into buying things that aren't really a good purchase for you.
|Taking advantage of a bargain
If you're patient, persistent, and know where to look, you can find plenty of fashion bargains. Do comparison shopping in stores, on-line, or by checking newspaper circulars to find out what you can expect to pay for a given item.
