We all fall for it and want to be like Cher Horowitz, who is crazy about shopping and can never have enough, but... is it healthy? Perhaps not so much. Ok. It is not healthy at all. What happens is, you are in such a rush to buy all the pretty things you like, you end up buying completely unnecessary things.
We know your closet is a hungry monster that you have to feed constantly, but maybe we can help you save some money that you can use instead to buy things that are truly useful and that you will use -or at least that you will use more. So, before you get those cards out, read on to learn what things you should avoid completely -and why.
Of course, everyone dreams of having that basic t-shirt with the logo of your favorite brand. Sometimes fast-fashion brands have something that is almost like the real thing, with images that look just the same. We are sorry to break it for you: they look bad, and you can tell they are knock-offs from miles away. They look cheap and tacky. Maybe it seems like you are saving money when you buy them, but the truth is, in the long run, it's a waste of money.
They are cute, yes, and they will make you look cute and cool, but let's be honest: you won't use them next year, and most probably, you will stop wearing them after a few weeks or months. Try to buy basic shoes -or shoes with a classic look and neutral colors. We know you are dying for a pair of ugly sneakers, but let's be honest, how long will you wear them?
Pants that don't fit
You usually buy a different pair of jeans in each store, but that's not because the shops store them in different sizes, it's because of your own habits. If you are going for mom jeans or the paper bag style, perhaps you will go one size up, but for skinny jeans, you pick smaller ones. That's a mistake: learn what your right size is and wear jeans that actually fit your body.
Jackets that don't match anything
Think carefully about what's in your closet before you buy that jacket. Try to think of at least five looks you can put together with it. If you can't, put it back in the rack.
A formal suit
We know they're very trendy right now, but think carefully and choose wisely. If you are going to end up buying something that your mom would wear, better not do it. Buy something in a bold color and wear it with something daring, like a bralette or a hoodie. If you are going to be boring, it's better not to wear it at all.
Spaghetti strap dress
You don't need one of these to look sexy. There are many other items that will make you look great and be comfortable in them. Pick a nice top, well fitting jeans, cute skirts... but a tight short dress? You definitely do not need one of these.
They only look good if you are at the beach. For the city, they can be pretty uncomfortable, and if it's hot, your skin won't be able to breathe properly and will lack any protection against the sun, so better pick a longer short. A longer piece will also make you feel more comfortable and give you more freedom to move. Also, short shorts are hard to pull off with other pieces.
As you can see, it's not hard to pick the right item to buy, but you have to think twice before buying something just because it is trendy, and to understand that it is not always the best choice. Try to strike a balance between your ideas, your needs, and your likes!
