Always having something to wear can seem like a stretch if you’re the kind of person who can never seem to throw an outfit together without panicking about having nothing to wear. To have an outfit to wear, you don’t have to be constantly shopping and buying new things. In fact, doing that is a surefire way to feel like you don’t have anything to wear, as you’re buying for the sake of it instead of because you genuinely like the item and think you’ll get a lot of wear out of it.
Below, we’re going to talk you through some shopping and style tricks that you can use to make sure that you always have something to wear:
Before Shopping, Shop Your Wardrobe:
Before you go shopping for something new, shop your wardrobe. Oftentimes, people forget what they have in there and end up buying pieces that closely resemble things they already own. Do the following:
- Get rid of anything you haven’t worn in over a year.
- Get rid of anything that no longer brings you joy.
- Make sure your items can be spotted easily and give them room to breathe.
Assess Past Outfit Decisions:
Look at your past outfit decisions and work out why you loved/didn’t like an outfit. Maybe it wasn’t comfortable for you or you just hated the material. By doing this, you can begin to really hone in on what works for you and what you should avoid when dressing/shopping.
Have Your Own Personal Color Scheme:
Coming up with your own personal color scheme will make dressing and shopping so much easier. Know the colors that look best on you (and, of course, those that you enjoy wearing most) and make sure your wardrobe is made up mainly of those colors with additional pops of color worked in.
Think Of Three Words To Define Your Style:
By thinking of three words to define your style, you can bear them in mind when shopping and dressing and make sure you’re being true to them. If one main element of your style is ‘comfy’ and you buy a pair of shoes with a huge heel, you’re probably not going to feel amazing when baby deer walking around in them.
Build Up Your Accessory Collection:
A great accessory collection can make all of the difference to just about any outfit. You can visit this website to get a feel for what sort of accessories you like and fill in the gaps in your jewelry box. Sometimes all that’s missing from your look is a gorgeous statement necklace.
Visit A Personal Stylist/Shopper:
A personal stylist/shopper can help you to pinpoint the best colors for you if you’re unsure. You can pick up some valuable tips and, the great thing is, you’ll rarely need more than one session.
Only buy something if you absolutely love it!
