Our parents and grandparents knew more about fashion than we’d care to admit. Some of their advice holds true today.
- Strive for quality over quantity. It’s better to own quality garments and clothing items than lots of clothing that won’t stand the tests of time.
- Train your eye for quality. Study luxury fabrics and how good clothing is constructed. Do the plaids match up at the seam? Are your winter garments lined?
- Clean then store your seasonal clothing.
- Repair clothing as needed instead of discarding or replacing items. A quick fix will restore it to wearable. Keep the phone number to your local tailor or seamstress handy.
- Own undergarments and foundations that keep your clothing looking smooth and polished on the outside.
- Invest in accessories that complement your wardrobe and also lend to your sense of personal style. Cheap accessories make your custom or bespoke clothing look cheap too.
- Dress for the occasion and season.
These tips seem simple enough, right? They’re also very practical and worth passing down to your children.
