Saving money with classic clothing

Saving money on clothes is becoming much more difficult in today’s economic climate, as retailers scrap for every last customer and the cost of garments continues to rise. Despite this, as a society we continue to treat clothing as disposable, with around one billion items going into landfill sites every year.

If you really want to save money on clothes, you might need to step back from the latest trends. The fads of fashion mean that items which are the in-thing one moment are soon out of date and shoved to the back of the wardrobe, before eventually being thrown out. By choosing classic styles and taking the time to find quality items at a low price, you will get long-lasting value from your clothes.

The warmer weather will have many men looking for a pair of comfortable shorts, so shop around on retailer websites for styles that transcend the trends. Chino shorts are a good place to start, as you get extra value from their versatility. The smart style easily lends itself to being worn with a T-shirt for a day in the park, but pair them with a shirt and you’re ready for a night out. To make the most of this versatility, stick to safe block colours, such as tans, blues and blacks and you’ll find they work better with more of the existing items in your wardrobe.
