We all feel the urge to revamp our style with the latest offerings when the seasons change. But it’s easy to go overboard on spending when it comes to your summer wardrobe.
Here Jessica Moorhouse, a personal finance expert, shares tips that will help you maximize your dollars on this season’s top looks.
Take inventory. Before embarking on your overhaul, check out which items you already have and donate what you know you won’t wear. From this list you will have an easier time choosing what you need versus and avoiding impulse buys, which will help stay on budget as you shop.
Skip the trends. Instead of chasing trends, invest in timeless pieces that will last year after year. Stick to a neutral colour scheme that goes with everything, such as whites, creams, navys and greys, to ensure the most versatility when pairing pieces.
Shop smart. Style doesn’t have to come at a hefty price. Moorhouse says it’s all about finding fun, affordable pieces. “Spending less doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Stores like Joe Fresh have a wide range of fashionable essentials at reasonable prices. Additionally, when you use a President’s Choice Financial World Elite Mastercard, you’ll rack up points that can later be redeemed for more clothing or everyday items like groceries and beauty products at participating stores.”
