If you routinely spend hours staring at your closet trying to decide what to wear – you’re not alone! Every woman has found themselves struggling to put together the right outfit at one time or another, but things don’t have to be so difficult. With these handy clothing tips, you can simplify your wardrobe and enjoy stress-free fashion:
Do a Clothing Audit
Is my favourite thing to do! There’s a good chance you’ve got multiple items stashed away at the back of the closet that you’ve completely forgotten about. To give yourself a clear idea of what garments you already own, undertake a clothing audit. This makes it easier to pair items together to create a great outfit and gives you a chance to see what items you no longer wear.
Declutter and Donate
It’s easy to hang on to clothes because you ‘might wear them in the future’ or they ‘might fit better when your weights changed’. However, looking at clothes that don’t make you feel good is only going to make you feel miserable. If you haven’t worn something for months, there’s probably a good reason why. Instead of hanging on to items that you don’t enjoy wearing, donate, or discard them.
Restore Classic Pieces
If you own a piece of clothing you love, it’s worth taking care of it. Whether it’s a vintage, designer piece, or simply your favourite pair of sweats, you’ll want to do everything you can to increase their longevity. Using products designed to protect different fabrics will help to ensure your clothes remain in great condition. Similarly, caring for your jewellery will keep necklaces, bracelets, bangles, and rings looking sublime. With a little extra TLC, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to restore items to their former glory.
Shop for Your Body Type
When you’re buying new clothes, it’s easy to be swayed by adverts, storefronts, and even what your friends are wearing. While it can be fun to experiment with the latest trends, dressing for your body type is always the best option. No matter how your weight fluctuates, your natural body shape doesn’t change. By learning to dress according to your shape, you can develop your own fashion rules that make it easy to put together an outfit at the drop of a hat.
Find Your Colour Palette
If you always reach for blacks and greys because you’re not sure what colours work for you, it’s time to find out. Position a mirror close to a window so that you can access the natural light and hold different coloured fabrics up to your face. This is an easy way to see which shades complement your natural skin tone. In seconds, you can discover the colours that work for you and start incorporating them into your wardrobe.
Uncover Your Signature Style
Once you’ve found what works for you, you’ll feel much more confident when it comes to pushing boundaries and trying out the latest fashions. What’s more – you’ll never waste hours trying to find something to wear. With a mix of classic pieces and trendy items, you can put together unique looks to create your very own signature style.
