As a young professional, you will have less money to throw around. This means that you need to learn to make your investments last. If you’ve spent a few for good and quality clothing, such as a custom suit or a pair of expensive dress shoes, it is important that you take care of them. Use decent quality hangers for your suits, shoe rack for your shoes, as well as keep an eye out for the washing machine when you wash your clothes. The better the condition of your clothes, lesser the embarrassment you would face at your work place.
Unless you work at a fashion outlet or for a designer, avoid falling into the pitfall of keeping up with the fashion trends. Main-stream fashion trends change too fast to make useful wardrobe staples. As young professionals, most likely you won’t have the budget to buy new pants every month or two, so it is best to stay away from pants that are currently “in” or in the “in” season. Many clothing lines, such as bleached jeans, are expensive and quickly fall out of trend, leaving many with overrated and expensive pair of jeans. Stick to classic and simple clothing staples for your wardrobe build up and avoid anything that’s too far out on the cutting edge.
