7 Women On The Single Most Versatile Piece in Their Wardrobe (And How Much It Cost) [The Financial Diet]


  • Self-knitted jumpers, which apart from the effort of making them, just last and last. My oldest one is over 30 years old, still fits and still gets worn every winter.

    I have a number of long-lasting items that I bought 10-20 yrs ago that don’t show their age. Nothing I’ve bought since 2005 seems to show much indication of lasting.

  • A suit, always a suit. A nice one. Even if it’s off the rack at a few hundred bucks (shirt, pants, jacket included) You can always get it adjusted at a tailor for like 50 bucks. It’s worth it. It’s also a great way to maintain your weight as you know oooh i need to fit into my suit again for x event 🙂
