After some careful reflection on my spending (sorry to keep on about the frugal thing), I have had a good think about which styles of clothes suit me. I have to choose carefully when buying clothes as I am only 5ft 2 and there are plenty of styles that really don't suit me. There are how ever a few different styles of clothes that always make me feel great. These are generally the clothes that hide those few extra pounds that I keep promising to loose and lumpy bumpy bits that I shall blame on having had 2 children. In light of the current economic climate, It may seem a bit boring but I will be sticking firmly to the styles of clothes that I know suit me. That is not to say that I cannot be a bit more adventurous when it comes to colours, patterns and accessories.
Bootleg trousers/ Jeans
Sheath/ shift dresses
Empire line tops and dresses
Fitted tops that finish at the waist
Tulip Style Dresses
Short and fitted cardigans
A Line Skirts
There are some items that no matter what I will avoid and if I do have any lurking in my cupboard I will swap, sell or send to the charity shop immediately.
anything over sized
anything that clings rather than clings
