Her answer: A good blazer. "Buying a good blazer is important because it's such an easy way to elevate an outfit," Yannetta says. "The upper half of your body is what people see the most more than your pants or your shoes." Expect to spend roughly $90 to $200 on a quality garment that fits perfectly, she says. And if a high-caliber item still needs a tweak, spend the money to have it tailored. Spending that much on one piece of clothing may seem like a lot, especially if you're a millennial who's still dealing with college debt, like I am. But if you look at cost-per-wear, it actually is worth it. Take the example of a blazer on the more expensive end of the spectrum, one that cost about $200. Maybe you bought it for less and had it tailored for that price, or maybe you found a great fit from a high-end store. If it's a wardrobe staple and you wear it twice a week for the whole year, that's 104 days of wear. Divide the cost, $200, by the number of days and you end up with less than $2.00 per wear.
