When should you
buy the next trendy fashion item. It is a tough call because
while you don't want to pay $2000 for a fresh-off-the runway
trendy fashion look, you don't want to wait so long the fashion
trend is already a has-been.
Ideally, you want
to buy a trendy item within the first month of knock-offs
hitting the stores. Watch for deals, definitely, but don't
wait for them to be marked down a great deal - this is an
easy sign that the trend has saturated the market and has
moved onto something else.
Of course, sometimes
there are trendy items you love to death for whatever reason
- many people still wear those trendy long sweaters from a
couple years ago because they are warm and cosy, and are perfect
to use in leui of a blanket on airplanes or trains. So if
this sounds like you, that would be a perfect example of when
you might want to spend a bit more on a trendy items rather
than going and buying the bargain basement knock-off instead.
