Here's a shocker: women love to shop. So much so, that we often buy a lot of unnecessary crap that we eventually donate. Such is the circle of life in a shopaholic's world. Are you wondering why we bombard our closets with items we wind up not wearing? It's because new purchases smell and feel so good, they're impossible to resist.
However, while swiping our cards and taking home a bag full of enviable garments gives us a feeling of euphoria, nothing aches more than the reality of cash wasted on worthless pieces.
With that in mind, it's always important to know where to invest your money. A rule of thumb? Splurge on classics and skimp on trendy pieces. That way you'll get a ton of bang for your buck!
Here are 11 items that will never go out of style.
1. White shirt & blue jeans
There's just something about a crisp white shirt and blue jeans that always seems to do the trick. It's clean and classic. We promise you'll never go wrong in this crazy cute combo.
2. Flirty florals
While new innovations are being made on the floral front, the fact remains, a pretty print is great to have on tap. They're fun, flirty, and feminine. When you're in a super girly mood, turn up the flower power.
3. A chic blazer
Blazers are the best friends you've always dreamed of having, but thought you never quite deserved. That's just how awesome they are. What makes them so great is their impeccable ability to turn an outfit from drab to chic in 2 seconds. Yup, the transformation is that instant.
Perhaps their best quality is versatility. You can wear them with jeans, a skirt, or a dress. No matter what you choose, the end result will always have a polished finish.
