Simple Style Tips

Showing Style
(While Watching Your Budget)

Shop in your closet first. Most people have new or like new items just waiting to be worn. Take a look through your closet, try on items for proper fit, and start your spring/summer wardrobe with the clothes you already have.

Buy the Basics. Purchase essential interchangeable items that can be mixed and matched to accommodate different occasions. Be sure to keep your work requirements and after hours preferences in mind when making selections.

Accessorize. Use existing solids and compliment with this season's hottest fashions by using accessories such as jewelry, handbags, belts, shoes, and hats.

Give Back. Donate unwanted clothing to a local charitable organization and help someone else show style while watching their budget.
