We always get overwhelmed every time we decide what to wear, even with a million of fashion options to choose from. Your closet must be a huge pile of textures, patterns, colors and trends and sometimes that can be pretty daunting.
But did you know that there are a few simple rules and easy tricks to make sure your outfit is on fleek each day, while also building a cohesive and functional wardrobe that will last you a long time, even with trends.
Here are a couple of things you should remember to make sure every day is always a chic day for you.
Some people don’t have the patience to sift through racks at a thrift store or a flea market. But if you want something cheap but one-of-a-kind, something that you won’t see at the malls anymore, then you definitely need the patience and practice because the pay-off is phenomenal.
You can find so many awesome finds at flea markets and thrift stores, even designer items for a dollar or two, if you look for it. If you worry about how to clean it or if there are some rips and loose threads, then you can always take them to the tailor and dry cleaners.
Remember, white isn’t really a color so if you’re wearing, let’s say, navy blazer, black pants and a white shirt, you can add another color without ruining the aesthetic. Having a printed item with loads of colors is considered one color.
Of course everything in our closet has a reason and some of the pieces we actually love and wear. Curate your closet by this simple steps – discarding, restructuring, defining your style, classifying closet basics, reviewing colors and trends and concentrating on shopping.
Clearing the mess and keeping the pieces that are only musts and love will not only make you more fashionable, but will feel less overwhelmed when you dress up every day.
No to trendy pieces. Yes to timeless pieces.
When you live in place where you’re close to the high-street favorite like H&M, chances are, the “buy only one thing” won’t apply to you. At some point, you won’t even notice the piles of clothes on your shopping cart full of one season’s worth of trends.
Impulse buying is fun but you could save the money you spent ten neon accessories by purchasing something basic and essential, like a classic leather jacket or a black sheath dress. You can always find a neon necklace at thrift stores for a fraction of the price you will spend on high-street shops.
