Trying to put together a fabulous wardrobe on a budget and not sure what’s worth spending your money on? Check out this video. 

Deborah: Some women have the knack of looking pulled together and chic whenever they step out the door.  But believe it or not, it is not necessary to have a huge budget and closet to look this way.

One sure-fire way to start building a “wow” wardrobe is to find out what items to invest your money in and what things are worth scrimping on.

Tip # 1 Have a Youthful Bustline

One of the quickest ways to look fabulous after 40 is to have a youthful bustline. That’s why it is worth it to splurge on a great bra. Like a house, you need a good foundation. So Get a bra fitting, spend what you need, and find a bra that gets the girls off your tummy and back up high, so you look perky and sexy.

Tip #2 Don’t Go Overboard with Trends

Trendy pieces come and go. Incorporating a couple into your wardrobe each season keeps you looking modern and with it, but don’t spend a lot of money on what’s the latest new thing. Stores like Zara and H&M carry trendy clothes that are cheery, cheap, and perfect to co-ordinate with your more expensive classics.

Tip #3 Spend Wisely on Costume Jewelry

Should you spend a lot of money on costume jewelry? It is a colorful addition to any outfit and a great way to express your personality. I say save your money. Costume jewelry is everywhere, and so inexpensive these days, it’s best to have a little fun with it but don’t blow a bundle.

Tip #4  Invest in a Quality Purse

And what about your purse? When it comes to looking Fabulous after 40, this is one item you don’t want to skimp on. Spend a few extra dollars for a quality leather handbag because in this department quality shows. There are a lot of brightly colored bags out at the moment, but if you can only afford one purse, buy it in a neutral color, so it goes with everything year-round. You won’t go wrong.
