Quality over Quantity

With the credit crunch and recession forcing many people to think their spending habits, many people are also rethinking their consumer behaviour with regards to fashion and clothing. Fast fashion had become part of many peoples life, buying low cost clothing and then throwing away after just a few wears just to keep up with the latest trends. The credit crunch has caused a bit of a rethink. It is much more cost efficient (not to mention better for the environment) to buy good quality clothes to last in styles that are both flattering and timeless. By developing your own sense of style rather than relying on fashions and trends, you can always look your best without the need to continually update your wardrobe. By shopping in the sale, you can get amazing designer pieces at a fraction of the cost. If you pick carefully, you can find classic items so it will not matter if they were from last season, they will still look stylish.

This classic brown wool Paul and Joe Hagrid Blazer from My Wardrobe is great for all seasons and will last you for many years to come. It looks great with jeans. Roll up the sleeves for a more casual look.
