    Hey, it seems that I am forever buying clothes and cleaning out my bank account doing so. But for all my shopping I NEVER have anything to ware so I ware the same outfits all the time.
    I was wandering how much clothes other people have? (Girls in particular) What is the least amount of clothes you need to survive in uni and still look fashionable. What are wardrobe essentials?

    Try buying a range of different accessories as it will enhance your outfit as well as colour co-ordinating with different jewellery. Also, for the clothes issue, try buying more cheaper clothes instead of expensive and find clothes that appeal to your body.

    Maybe 10 outfits is the least you need to always look fashionable, and just make sure you don't allow tagging on facebook so you don't get caught in the same clothes twice.

    I try to 'invest' in staples such as jeans, jackets, blazers, coats. And then go cheaper on tops/t-shirts, cardigans and costume jewellery so you can jazz up regular outfits. You can buy the cheaper fashionable clothes to keep on trend.

    Also, think of your colour pallet of your staples when you buy things. What does it go with, what colour jewellery would I wear? Although be warned if you really want something this could force you to buy other things in the shop to go with it.

    I love those things in magazines where they have a few different clothes and show all the combinations they can be worn in. Try and think of that as well!

    I used to be like this, but I've started thinking when I go shopping, and if I can't pair the new item with at least 3 different outfits/things I already own, then I generally don't buy it (this doesn't always work, I'm not that good!).

    I have:

    5 pairs of jeans
    7 jumpers
    5 pairs of leggings
    around 15 tshirts (Mainly band tshirts, some vest tops, some long sleeved)
    3 flannel shirts (mens)
    2 denim shirts
    3 dresses (1 casual, 2 going out dresses)
    3 zip up hoodies

    I found that my biggest money sink was in places like primark and H&M, where I would constantly buy low quality impulse buys that I would rarely wear. Now I save up a bit and buy things after a lot of consideration either online or in more expensive places like urban outfitters or topshop, as I find that if I'm spending more money on an item, I have to be sure that I really want it, and that I'll really wear it.

    That's a really good idea, might try it.

    I wear mostly jeans so I have soooo many pairs, and I can just change the look with jewellery (I don't wear any on a regular day), different colour tops and cardigans/jumpers/hoodies and one of my few pairs of shoes for different occasions and places (:

    I've also found I've become quite addicted to eBay recently... ):
