When I can’t find anything to wear in my closet I’m a flatlining fashionista. Here are 5 reasons you’re not getting the most out of your existing wardrobe:
Hurt feelings aside, I’ve had many sessions of reinventing my wardrobe to suit my needs. If you’re taking your wardobe at face value, you may be limiting the versatility and fun of shopping your own closet.
The online description called it a mini dress, but you won’t pair it up with shorts or leggings? I know its a tee shirt, but would you concider wearing it over a blouse like a sweater?
You have missing buttons, faded colors, and a dry cleaning bag that’s been sitting around for ages. Think of how you could be wearing these pieces if you only got the maintence under control. If you can’t find a matching button, buy a new set and replace all of them to give it a new look. If that’s too much work, pop em all off and wear it as an open layer. Get the RIT dye and re-up that color or opt for a new shade. And for the love of couture… take those clothes to the cleaners!
No… Under no circumstances am I advocating that you wear those tight trousers or button-popping blouse. You can put somone’s eye out like that ya know… I’m encouraging you to look critically at pieces that you can layer as your weight fluctuates. A too-tight bodycon skirt could fit better as a tube top. A baggy shirt could be haute tucked into a high waist pencil skirt. Experiment with ideas you feel confortable in.
#4 – You’re not accessorizing fully
Have you given any thought to accessorizing your accessories? Handbags, scarves, hats, jewelry, belts – they can all modify your garments. They can also modify each other. Replace a brimmed hat band with a necklace. Pin brooches to a clutch. Belt a one shouldered scarf.
