Where to Splurge and Where to Save in Fashion

Splurge on shoes

If there’s something that you want to splurge on, it’s definitely shoes. Shoes shouldn’t only be splurged on so that you can get beautiful pairs, but also because of how often one uses shoes. You’ll need durable shoes that can last for years while also offering you the comfort that you want. Whether you love boots or ballet flats, spend time looking for the right ones and money on the perfect fit. When it comes to shoes, splurging is worth it. 

Save on denim

While, yes, you want durability and quality when it comes to shopping for denim, the good news is that you can find that in a more affordable pair of jeans. Additionally, many thrift stores offer great fits that are quality but have a price tag that allows you to save money. You can also shop at outlet stores for your favorite brands, like Levi’s and Lee, if you’re looking for name-brand items at half the price.

Splurge on quality tees

Spending money on great T-shirts may seem odd, but the truth is that you can tell quality when it comes to your tees. A great white T-shirt has been a staple in fashion for years, and because of the versatility offered by this basic fit, you’ll want to make sure you find one (or two) that is durable and top-notch. Material matters, as you want one that feels comfortable on your skin. 

Quality is important because you’ll be wearing this tee often, and it will go through many washes. Invest in great T-shirts, and you’ll always have great looks to wear, no matter what.

Save on other basics

However, other basics like your bras and underwear, undershirts, loungewear, and other basics or essentials need not have a high price tag attached to them. While it’s great to splurge on some items, your basic items can be priced more affordably. 

However, while shopping, do pay attention to quality. You don’t need to spend $50 on a pair of thongs, but you also want to make sure that those underwear are made to last for months to come. So, while you should save on your basics, make sure you check for quality. If you’ve found great items that feel good on your skin and that are affordable, consider purchasing “in bulk,” so that you can get the best bang for your buck. 

Splurge on warmth

With the cooler months around the corner, it’s a good time to think about splurging on your outerwear. Firstly, people will notice that jacket or sweater you’re wearing before anything else. Make sure you’re investing in jackets and coats that are designed to last. After all, you don’t want to just wear them for a month or two. 

Most people purchase their outwear to be used for many years to come. If that sounds like you, don’t be afraid to spend more on your jacket investment. It will be worth it when you get years of use out of it. Sure. Trends change. But they also come back around, so keep that investment in mind when you buy your warm layers for the cold season


When to save and when to splurge is a question that many people ask when shopping for their wardrobe. While this is not an extensive list, it can help you see where you should spend more and where you could be spending less. Don’t worry—as long as you look for quality, you’ll be looking like the best dressed around.
