Stylish Money: 5 Wardrobe Pieces You Can Save Your Money On

save-spend-splurge-stylish-money-5-wardrobe-saves

 

You really don’t need to spend a fortune on pieces that are not meant to last a lifetime.

Sad but true, tanks will stretch out and get ruined, and loungewear is meant for that — lounging around.

You can find great pieces in all of the above for much lower price points, you don’t really need those $50 flip flops or a really fancy graphic scarf (unless it really is something unusual!!), you can find cheaper options.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Hi Sherry – love your money tips and I am in awe of your financial wisdom. Have to disagree with this post though. No need to spend a fortune on loungewear or t shirts, but they do need to be of the very best possible quality and sweat shop free off course. Ideally in organic cotton, linen or cashmere. After all the world is now a much more casual place and we spend most of our time dressed now.

      What a good point! I myself wear sweatpants from a brand called Skin. Cost me $130 and they’re ruined because of the toddler (have to kneel to change him and play with him), but I do have to say that we don’t have to look far for good quality FEELING loungewear and tshirts, even if they aren’t organic cotton, linen or cashmere. If it’s out of people’s budget, there’s no point in suggesting $130 sweatpants.

        I bought things from the brand you mention ‘skin’, nightwear and undies, lovely colours and organic cotton, but they did not keep their shape well at all. I don’t think the quality is there, despite the price. Majestic filatures is a much better buy, not suggesting couture sweatpants here, but nicely made & sweat shop free is a must.

          Oh you’re right. They bagged out and stretched especially the thin white cotton pants I got.

          I will look at Majestic Filatures! Thank you
