When I find pieces I love, I'm always inclined to buy on in each color. However, I don't want the temptation to wear the same things all the time. Usually I resist buying multiples of one item and end up regretting it.
Next time I find basic mary janes or a basic layering tee that I like, I'm splurging on all the colors. Same goes for the next pair of jeans that fits, the next cardigan sweater and the next pair of dress pants. Yes, it makes for a redundant wardrobe, but that's what statement pieces are for. When I find a truly fabulous item in my price range that fits, I think it's wise to buy each color. I've done this only a few times with my favorite cardigans, tights, camisoles and my favorite layering tees. I'm so glad I have two of each of these things. It makes my currently limited wardrobe go a lot further.
Plus, more color options can add more fun and interesting pairings to my outfits. I love adding a pop of color to a dress with a pair of purple tights and a red cami. The only trick is to make sure I really love an item otherwise I'm stuck with multiples of something mediocre.
Do you save by buying just one or do you splurge on one of each color?
