Update Your Wardrobe for a Social Adventure

If you’re like me, you hate spending money on new clothes. Your clothes work. You have a few favorite shirts that you wear all the time and you think you look pretty good in them. That’s great. The issue arises when you’re looking through your social media photos from the past year and you realize that you’re wearing the same shirt in every picture.

The purpose of updating your wardrobe is twofold. First, it makes you feel revamped; when you put on a shirt that you’ve never worn, it gives you a sense of revolution. Second, it lets other people see you in something besides your favorite blue shirt.

At first, updating your wardrobe sounds like a strenuous task, both on your stamina for shopping and on your wallet; however, updating your wardrobe can be a quick, painless process.

In his hit song, Thrift Shop, Macklemore said:

They be like, "Oh, that Gucci - that's hella tight."
I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant [stuff]
I call that getting swindled and [stuff]
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Tryna get girls from a brand and you hella won't

Along with his social commentary on American consumerism and the way in which our society perceives other people’s value, the Grammy-winning independent artist has the right idea when it comes to updating your wardrobe.

In order to update your wardrobe, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on designer jeans because, in reality, no one cares if your jeans were 10 dollars or 200 dollars (actually, only you will care because your bank account will be drained and you’ll feel less financially stable than you were before buying a 200-dollar pair of jeans).

Save yourself the financial hassle of buying expensive new clothes and visit your local thrift shop or discount clothing store. Most outlet malls have extremely discounted clothes from last season (whatever that means), so it’s worth a look, especially if you’re set on a specific brand.

The simple act of updating your look will provide you with a confidence boost, so there’s no need to undermine your financial confidence in order to accomplish a wardrobe update.
