Replace Your Basics With Something That Lasts

We’ve all been there… that $8 shirt that seems too good to pass up. Fast forward 3 months later only to realize you need another $8 shirt. Then, another… You see where this is going. $8 here and there doesn’t seem like a big deal, but $8 spent every 3 months adds up especially when going to the store usually involves more than just an $8 shirt but rather another shirt, plus a pair of shoes and maybe an Auntie Anne. Because who can resist? 

For those looking to make a change. We recommend trying to replace old habits with new ones. Rather than buy multiple cheap items, buy one good one that will last. Here’s a list of items to help you (man or woman) get started.

Instead of multiple Target tees buy one good LNA Basic, Cuyana or American Apparel Tee

Instead of multiple Kohl’s button-ups buy one good Mizzen + Main or Everlane

Instead of multiple Old Navy jeans buy one good Noble Denim, DSTLD, AG, Paige

Instead of multiple Gap jackets buy one good Cotopaxi or Patagonia

Instead of multiple Steve Madden shoes buy one good Frye, Loake, or Oliberte

Instead of multiple Hanes underwear buy one (maybe a few more!) Wearpact

Instead of multiple DSW Accessories buy one Mat & Nat or Poler
