Really -- $50 dollars for a T-shirt? Women expect and deserve reasonable pricing for apparel. Clothing is certainly not cheap these days, so try to find pieces at a good price point to ensure that you can stay on budget and still be fashion-forward.
So, what's reasonable pricing for fashionable attire? There's no true answer for this question, but if you're willing to dish out more cash for designer duds (and you take care of your clothes), your dollars may go a little further. There's a reason why expensive labels have a higher price tag. Aside from using premium fabrics, high-end designers generally spend more time and effort developing and producing clothing lines. Unfortunately, the term "you get what you pay for" applies, and the less expensive the item, the more likely it won't last more than a single season.
