The clothes you choose should be based on your lifestyle. In every culture, people have learned that they are most comfortable in clothes that are appropriate, or suited, to their lifestyle. Appropriate clothes are those that are right for the time and place you choose to wear them. They are also right for the climate in which you live. Since clothes are your wrappings, it is very important to know what you wear will make you comfortable and at ease. Clothes should also make the kind of impressions that you want to make.

The other way to ensure appropriate dress is to consider climate. It may sound simpleminded to say “dress for the weather”, but many people refuse to do this. Going on a winter hike or going snow skiing, you need to wear a hat, extra scarves, and gloves or mittens. Don’t be afraid of looking too bulky, wearing several warm tops. The same thing is true for sports. Most sports activities now include clothes that meet special requirements, and one should dress to suit these occasions, too.

There are good ways to increase a wardrobe using everything you have. The first one is recombining clothes. Separates can be combined and recombined into new outfits. You can wear a shirt with yet another pair of pants or skirt, or a short sleeved top over another shirt. A scarf would make that drab outfit brighter and increase your chances of wearing it.

The second one is new colour combinations. Just because you buy a certain skirt to go with one of your sweaters does not mean you cannot wear it with other tops. Resist the urge to think of clothes as matching each other. This way, you can come up with new colour combinations. You may try adding a third colour to two colours you often wear together. Many different outfits can probably be made when you become adventurous with colour.

Sometimes the structural lines of clothes keep a person from wearing them. By taking out fullness or changing length, one may be able to make a garment usable. Decorative touches can also make a used garment more appealing. A contrasting border or trim may work. New buttons, braid, hand embroidery, and appliqués can also change the look.

As a last resort, if something just does not work, it is useful to consider swapping or trading it for somebody that will. This can be done with friends or family members.



For dressy occasions, the possibility of renting an outfit should not be overlooked. In some cities, there are services that rent evening clothes. By spending a smaller fee to rent something, one may save money for a more practical purchase.

You will probably find that you might need to buy a few extra clothes, or you may need something major, such as a coat or parka. If you plan well, your new purchases can enhance the clothes you already own.

Think about your favourite clothes. When you are buying something new, try to find something that will go with a favourite. In this way, you will be more likely to wear your new purchase more often.

By making wise decisions about clothes you buy, and by purchasing clothes that go with things you already own, you will save your money. Careful, periodic analysis of the clothes you already own will also mean more wear and more clothes for you.
