K.I.S.S. -

a. Stick to basic and neutral colors and patterns. When creating combinations, you will come across wearing some pieces more than once. In that case, you will want to attract attention because you look dashing and stylish, not because everyone notices you’ve worn something twice within the past week or two.

b. You can never have too many accessories. Having a variety of accessories can drastically change or improve the look of your outfit. No matter how many times you’ve worn a combination, switching up the accessories will bring a lively new feel to it.

Sometime you’ve got to take the L  and spend a little bit more cash on an item that will last you a long time rather than buying cheap items that you’ll have to replace often. Re-buying cheaper quality items adds up, usually summing to more than the expensive piece.
