7. Pass on a drop or two to get some quality clothing.
We're not saying go out and buy the entire Kanye West x APC collab, but there's more to looking dope than just rocking heat on your feet. Save some dough for investment pieces you can wear over and over, like a luxe hoodie or a really nice pair of denim, then wear it with all of your kicks. The key is to find something that you dig so much that you can't help but find excuses to wear it. That way, you'll get more "cost per wear" out of an item. Think about it: If you spend $250 on something you wear 20 days a month, that's $12.50 for each time. On the other hand, if you drop $30 on something you wear twice then forget about: that's $15 you wasted.
