3 Fashion Items You Should Stop Wasting Your Money On

Shopping addicts all have one thing in common (other than the inability to stop shopping)—continuously purchasing the same pieces over and over. I will readily admit that I'm a culprit, I have so many pairs of jeans that I've bought online in my quest for the perfect pair and haven't bothered returning because I thought "I'll just make them work". Newsflash: You can't just make something work. Unless it's a perfect fit and easy to wear the moment you put it on, it will never be something you reach for.

The same goes for pieces that are just difficult to wear. If a piece needs a slip, a belt, an extra layering piece to make it work, then chances are it will be too hard to wear day-to-day.

As we come to the end of the year, it's time to start thinking about our fashion resolutions, and one we should all consider, is to stop wasting money on things we will never wear.

T-shirts are a staple in every wardrobe, so you'll be throwing them in the wash quite frequently. You need your tee to whip back into its original shape, and keep its colour. When shopping for tees, look for 100% cotton or organic cotton wherever possible. Our pick? Always Bassike, Kit and Ace, or Jac and Jack.

I keep making this same error, and buying jeans that don't fit, in the hope that one day they will. Shop for denim that fits you right now and you'll actually wear them. And if you're shopping online? Don't make the same mistakes as me—return them and keep trying until you find that perfect-fitting pair. Where do we shop for jeans? J Brand, Citizens of Humanity, Rag & Bone, and Acne Studios.

I've always loved anything sheer, and have at least three completely sheer skirts in my wardrobe (one that set me back $750! What a mistake) that I've never worn. Whenever I try to wear them, the slip I need to wear underneath always feels too-hard basket. If this sounds like you, there's a simple solution. Stop purchasing pieces that need something extra to make them work.
