According to Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, I’m only allowed to say Happy New Year for three days—you know, statute of limitations. But that won’t stop me from mentioning my New Year’s resolution of curbing my shopping budget, even if we’re already in the last week of January! Take that, Larry.

In 2023, I am aiming to buy only versatile pieces that can be worn for a variety of occasions and stay away from binge-purchasing things last-minute ahead of a trip or event. Scroll down for the practical trends that made the cut.
