A wardrobe full of classic pieces and basics, makes for effortless dressing. Invest in these essentials to ensure you get the most longevity per garment. When shopping for classic wardrobe pieces take into consideration an items cost per wear.
For example, let’s say I bought a timeless wool trench coat for $200 that I wore 3 times a week for six months. The cost per wear would be $2.78. My dad would be asking me to ‘show my work’, so here it is: 12 wears a month for 6 months is 72 wears. $200 divided 72 wears equals $2.77777778. When you break down your investment purchases in these terms, it makes sense to invest in classic durable wardrobe pieces, does it not?
Do yourself a favor and validate your investment pieces in terms of cost per wear. Do they still look amazing? Are they being utilized?
If you answered yes to these questions, chances are those wardrobe essentials are made of quality fabrics that are worth every penny. Bravo for taking care of your clothes and investing in classic pieces, Queen!
