Suggestions for a beginner?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for an entire new wardrobe for summer. I don't mind getting tailored items, but I'm not made of money (i.e. AE shoes are fine, but Vass shoes are not).

 

How much do you think is sufficient to save for a brand new summer wardrobe?

You're going to have to be much more specific, and do more research first. Search the 'asuitablewardrobe' blog for excellent primers on starting a wardrobe generally.

Is this the blog you're talking about? http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/

 

In general, how many of each item (top, pants, shoes, jackets) are recommended for rotation purposes (I've read that you should rotate your shoes so they can rest when not in use)?

Buy everything you find that is deeply discounted, then post it for foo.gif to critique. He can turn any oddball item into a masterpiece.

If you aren't made of money learn to buy opposite seasons. End of summer/start of fall buy stuff for next summer. End of winter/start of spring buy your winter stuff.

start slow. buy a few items and see what works for you, and what you like.
don't buy 10 of everything.
you will learn and most likely by the time next summer comes around you will have moved on from the 10 you originally bought.

Yes, you want to let shoes rest at least a day between wearing them. Are you going to be needing to wear a jacket every day? A tie? We need to have some idea of the situations you'll be dressing for to help you with this.
