2. Wardrobe Basics

When you are on a budget and always pressed for time you are going to need to shop smart to reap the benefits of looking good. Always have a few wardrobe staples handy. Invest in a few good quality wardrobe basics to keep you going through any season year after year: a good jacket for winter; a couple of pairs of perfectly fitting jeans - no matter your size, the fit is key; some crisp white T-shirts; neutral knitwear; and the obligatory little black dress. This way you can mix and match your basics. For example – throw a little black dress over a pair of jeans and sweep a colorful scarf around your neck for a trendy look in a flash.
