Simple Ways to Spend Less Money on Clothes

While we all undoubtedly love shopping (c'mon, is that even a question?), we don't always love shelling out as much as we do to nab the latest finds. But believe it or not, there is a way to feel more satisfied with and get the most mileage from what you currently own, which will ultimately save you money—just ask Banana Republic's Marissa Webb.

Our resident stylist filled us in on her expert tips to save a ton of cash on clothes. Keep scrolling to peep her simple ways to build your wardrobe sans buyer's remorse—and shop inspired (affordable!) finds too.

"I've personally regretted getting rid of my favourite classics, such as button-ups, great tailored jackets, and shoes. Hold onto them! They always come back into style."

"Style your look around your core pieces; you don't need a million choices. Give a little extra thought to the different 'fashion' pieces you pair back to your go-to items."

"Pick your 'trendy' moments wisely each season. Se don't need to get on every trend wagon. Pick your 'seasonal must-haves' with the other items in your wardrobe in mind. If it enhances your look without looking forced, it's worth the investment. Select items that you can use more than just once or twice."

"We should all have a great tailor in our lives. Think of ways to make alterations on the clothing you already have. It's amazing what a little hem shortening, tuck at the waist, slimming out a pant leg, removing of the sleeves can do to give your wardrobe a fresh look. Changing the buttons is another easy way of getting more out of your existing selection."

"Build your wardrobe around amazing foundational items that will take you from work to dinner, the weekend, and to next year."
