Below are some tips bound to help you:
Don’t spend money on clothing items you can’t afford
All because you love the fit and colour and your friends says it looks very nice on you, doesn’t mean you should buy something you do not need. Unless it’s for a special occasion that you saved for, you can make do with what you already have and mix and match.

Buy quality pieces
This means investing properly in the clothes you’ll probably be wearing in the next five years. These pieces differ based on personal style and lifestyle. For example, if you work in a more corporate environment, you should invest in quality work wear and a few casual pieces. Don’t invest in any thing less than the best quality because in the long run, cheap clothes would cost you more, which would end up creating more expenses for you.

Don’t invest a lot of money in trends
Do not be confused. Buying quality items is quite different form buying every fashion item that is trending. Mini bags are not a must have if you rarely have casual outings or dates. A more official bag would do you more good. Do not invest in too many high waisted trousers or sneakers if you hardly get to wear them.
