Shopping, But Smart 2
You often ask me what I consider mandatory to have to achieve a wardrobe like mine. All this is built with years of experience, going through impulsive and unnecessary shopping, accumulating unnecessary items, and realizing what is best for me and my productive life in general. I say again – I suffered a catharsis in my thinking. For the last year, I changed my habits little by little, stopped the emotional shopping or keeping clothes – “to have them,” and started investing in small but better clothes, shoes, and accessories.
I can’t give you an exact recipe for what to buy, but instead, I will provide guidelines and ideas – what I find useful to have on hand and what I would invest in during significant discounts:
Coat: If it is cashmere or wool, it would be best, but the price is very high and is unaffordable for any pocket. However, look for coats that have at least the content of natural materials. Neutral colors are suitable for investment because they will go with everything. Camel, black, navy, blue, or red are my favorites.
Jacket: Regardless of the situation, most of us have to hold business meetings, whether on-site or online. That is why the black coat is a total must-have for each of us. I would recommend looking at the slightly more voluminous models with high shoulders and a somewhat more masculine cut for the more adventurous. It can be combined with a suit or a more casual denim outfit.
White shirt: This is an excellent Mango find for me – I don’t even know how I haven’t had such a model before, but as I said – I’m already investing in items that are classic and easily compatible with the rest of my clothes.
Boots: This year, luckily for me, the rough shoes with high soles are back, but they are not for everyone, and I want to mention it. I’m short, and I’ve always felt perfect with “a little height,” but many people don’t perceive them, and that’s perfectly ok. Boots are a must for the winter season – do not follow the trends because these are shoes that I hope you wear for at least a few seasons – fashion comes and goes. I invested this year in those of Buffalo, with which you seem to walk clouds of the softness of soles. 10/10 for them.
Belt: You often see me with this belt. That is precisely because I decided to invest in a but high-quality accessory that I use every day and even slightly sporty – to elegant and sophisticated looks. If you find a reversible one, don’t even think about it.
Sport Outfit: I never thought I would write it, but 2020 taught us many new things and brought us habits that are not inherent to us. For me, that is suit. I refused to wear anywhere other gym, but given that we spend most of our day at home, it has become an inevitable part of our lives. I broke down to get a set to emphasize – I do not wear it outside the house because I consider this act disrespectful to myself / this does not mean that it is wrong, but this is my sense of fashion /, and I am very comfortable to stay with him at home.
Bag: that might have come first. For years I have been making only quality bags that have been true to me over the years. I shot this blog post with this red find from Coccinelle, which is already at least 3-4 years old, and I have not stopped wearing it. Daily. Because it’s my style, a color I adore, and a material that doesn’t move.
The post is becoming overly long, but I wanted to gather all this information in one place for a long time.
Lastly, I give a few gift ideas because this year is different, and I start by setting or buying gifts earlier so that it doesn’t happen at the last minute.
And with a bonus – discounts – now is the right time to think not only about what you need but also what you can take for your loved ones, which in addition to a fair price, will be useful to them.
Gloves: who doesn’t need them? I have identified some great models. I share them with you.
For a long time, cute socks have lost the glory of “the most horrible Christmas present.” There are already so many fresh suggestions that I get all sorts of new designs to cheer me up during the day when I look down. That is how an otherwise boring gift turns into something original and fun.
Accessories in general: jewelry, scarves, hats, watches. Each such item is the perfect gift if you have a clear idea of what the other person likes. I often get the question – how do I target and feel the style of the people around me. It’s not complicated, take the trouble to look at his photos – what he is wearing, what colors he likes, whether he wears accessories at all /, of course, this advice is if your acquaintance is not so close /. The gift should NEVER be a beating of the number, but instead even a small one, tot and bought willingly by the other person, with a thought.
Pajamas: The dress as a gift is difficult to fit – each of us has a different body, a vision for his style. That’s why pajamas are the only clothes I think are suitable as gifts, especially around Christmas. The box is my favorite, and I would give it to everyone around me for the rest of my life.
I hope this article was useful to you and made you think.
