Shop for quality pieces. When you take the time to find good fitting items made from quality fabric with great tailoring and quality craftmanship you will end up with pieces that instantly elevate your wardrobe.You will also find that even if you spend a little more initially the investment is well worth it. You get more wear and longevity out of quality designer pieces. Some pieces can even be passed from generation to generation and become treasured vintage family heirlooms.

Pay attention to fit. If there is anything you don’t LOVE about an item, find another that truly flatters you and makes you feel amazing.
