Splurge or save??

At times we are torn between splurging of saving when we go shopping. Though it seems quite sensible to save more than to splurge, once in a while you have to spoil yourself because trust me, you deserve it. However you should know the items to splurge on that will give you value for your money because they will last and last and will not go out of fashion.

The 5 items to splurge on are;

  1. Jeans

Jeans are very fashionable and they are versatile as you can dress them up or down. When buying jeans, consider them an investment, just make sure that you but the perfect fit, not too big or too small. You are guaranteed that you will wear them for a long time and the bonus is, jeans never go out of fashion.

  1. Work wear

You always have to look your absolute best, and these clothes are an investment, you can save on the accessories that will be the icing on the cake of your assignment.

  1. Underwear

lingerie

You have to splurge on undies as they make you ooze with confidence. Also buy the right sizes and get measured for your bra so that you buy the perfect size.

  1. Leather jacket

Even if it costs a leg and an arm, go ahead and splurge, it’s worth every cent. It might hurt a little to fork out that ward of cash but you will be wearing your gorgeous jacket for many years to come.

  1. Hand bags

It’s always better to have 5 quality handbags than to have 20 bags that are poor quality and will easily tear. Handbags help to start conversations and they also help you to make a statement. Buy bags that go with the rest of your wardrobe and your individual style.

Save on;

  1. Whites

These always easily lose colour, rather buy whites from chain stores.

  1. On trend pieces

Save on these pieces as you will only wear them for only when they are still in fashion and after that they will only take up space in your closet.

So go on and splurge and save, but do not max out your credit cards and end up drowning in debt, not cool.
