It feels like a conspiracy. Every year, designers come up with new trends that make last winter’s clothing look prehistorical. Yet you know too well this year’s trends wouldn’t last long. Next winter, you’d be shopping again for trendy clothes.
Put a stop to this. At least minimize the damage. Go back to the basics and build a timeless winter wardrobe.
What you need are classics. Clothes that would look great year after year. Start building a brand new wardrobe by going back to the basics. Get clothing that need never go out of style.
In winter, you need jackets and coats as well as thermals, sweaters, long sleeve tops and pants and festive dresses or skirts. You can go for the trendy designs which go out of style very quickly. Trends like the bubble skirt rarely last more than a season. After that, they go back in storage for years. Instead, go for classics. Wool pants and wool skirts in solid neutrals will always be in style. So would a good down jacket. Thermal underwear are clothes you’d wear to death all winter and probably would be able to wear them for many winters to come until you out grow them, or they are all worn out. These are the things you should look for during the year end sales. Clothes that would form the backbone of your timeless winter wardrobe and which you can always wear in future years.
A brand new wardrobe need not be expensive. Not if you time your purchases just right. Instead of buying your winter wear in autumn, wait it out. Go for the year end sales where they clear stocks of winter clothing at discount prices. Then you can afford to get the best quality at the lowest prices. For example, if you long for The North Face jackets, instead of buying them just before winter, buy them after Christmas. That’s when you get discount north face jackets which never go out of style. Quality counts but you can get it for less when your timing is right.
