From holding onto super old clothes you never get to wear to panic buying sweaters that won’t have over a single outing, it’s true that we’re all guilty of making nonsense decisions when it comes to managing our wardrobes. Look, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are 15 tips that you can follow if you want to revamp your wardrobe.
- Clear your closet.
First, clear your closet. Take out every piece of clothing that makes you cringe each time you look at it. Then, take out those clothes that have seen better days. Evaluate each one and see which pieces you still want to wear, and which ones you can just give away. Do they fit the current state of your body? Which colors still work for you? If it doesn’t work anymore, get it out of your closet. Depending on the sizes of your drawers and closet, set aside at least two hours for this task.
- Reassess your skincare and makeup products.
Each woman needs a reliable daily moisturizer and sunblock lotion. Hopefully, you have some of that with you. In addition to that, under-eye creams and toners are essentials. Depending on your age, you may want to replace those clay masks with skin generating scrubs.
- Don’t purchase something that you can wear for just a single occasion.
We are all guilty for this. A Christmas party, Friday night reunion or a wedding. Going somewhere means acquiring something new and special to wear. Though, more often than not, as much as we love the pieces that we purchase, it rarely gets more than a single outing. The best solution to this is to get versatile outfits. Go for something classic and simple, not trendy ones. You just need to accessorize cleverly, so it wouldn’t feel like the same look each time.
- Buy new bras.
If you haven’t been measured properly for a bra for over six months and your style feels a bit schlumpy, it’s time to get a new bra. Find an upscale department store like Nordstrom. Prepare to buy a minimum of two bras, one that matches your own skin tone and a black one. Depending on your size, this may cost you $150. Make sure to prioritize and buy bras that you can wear most of the time.
- Purchase current, well-fitting separates.
Are you working in a casual office? Since you need to revamp your entire wardrobe, you should begin with separates. The best approach to rebuild your wardrobe is to focus on those bottoms that you can wear more than once in one week. Look for classic patterns and solids. Pay attention to every detail. See to it that the waistband and width of the leg opening flatter your entire body.
- Don’t purchase something just because it’s on sale.
It’s so easy to be won over by huge discounts. It’s fine to make the most out of big markdowns, most especially when it comes to beautiful designer pieces. However, you should only buy it if it fits your current arsenal. Don’t buy something just because it’s on bargain. No matter how cheap it is, if you never get to wear it, it’s a waste of money.
