If you confine yourself to certain styles, you are just limiting your wardrobe and it will be more of a struggle to create different outfits because you are lacking options. However, when going shopping and unsure about your choices, always go for versatility as when you lack versatility you can’t maximize what you have that will result to wearing the same pieces again and again.

An upcoming event, vacation, romantic dinner, or last minute plans can be tempting to go shopping for new outfits. Remember, if you just spend money to shop around for this special event or occasion, chances are the outfit you’re going to buy will just sit in your wardrobe afterwards because you may not have as much need for it as you did for that special event.
