INDULGE IN FADS SPARINGLY
So we promised not to subject you to tired advice like shopping off-season, but this one bears repeating. Just because capris are in for summer and wide-leg trousers could be making a comeback for fall does not mean you need to own them. Many styles are simply unflattering for most. (Last fall's booties, for example, made bowling pins out of too many calves.) Stick to well-fitting basics so you'll get your money's worth. For those of-the-moment pieces, you're better off running to Forever 21 — you may only wear it once, but at least you didn't pay a fortune for it.
