How to Get Great Cost Per Wear From a Pair of White Trousers

I love a bargain but I will also buy something I really love even if it isn’t a bargain. It means that it has to get worn though, not just sit in the wardrobe. In fact some of the most expensive things I have bought have been worn the most; an Armani scarf, a silk Eileen Fisher dress and a Mulberry clutch bag for example.

There are several keys to getting good cost per wear from an item:

  • It is in a neutral, a navy blazer or a tan handbag
  • It’s in one of your best accent colours, for example a red cashmere scarf
  • It can be worn in different ways, to the office or out in the evening

Although my example below isn’t expensive, a pair of white trousers might be an item you would think you wouldn’t get much wear from, especially if you live in the UK with our erratic summers. But if you make sure that they are machine washable and that you have the right underwear to go under them (flesh coloured not white) you have plenty of options from casual to dressy.

If you have a good selection of accessories it is easy to get multiple looks from one item. Invest in great accessories when you see them or pounce on them in the sale because they really will make your wardrobe work harder.White Trousers
