Regardless of the style that you prefer, certain upgrades and improvements can always be brought to your wardrobe. One will find their personal style through trial and error, and this is perfectly normal. What isn’t normal is some inability to get over a bad fashion sense. While many try to constantly improve this, others are simply stuck in the same old patterns. In the era in which shopping has been facilitated by technological advancements and a facile access to a great Internet connection, shopping has become a 24/7 experience for many. Regardless, the pieces of advice below will help you reconstruct your wardrobe from scratch with high rates of success.
#1. Give up unappealing T-shirts
If you’re not a college student or you’re not currently exercising or jogging, then you might want to ditch your generous T-shirt collection. While comfortable and highly breathable in most of the cases, these items will rarely do you any service in terms of fashion. They might be suitable for an at-home outfit, but if you’re heading to your office wearing a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, you’re in the wrong here. Opt for buttoned-down shirts in light fabrics, such as silk, for the hot summer days. Add a warm cardigan in the cooler months and you will realize how looking classy and stylish becomes a child’s play. Spoiling your appearance with T-shirts isn’t worth it, as you have equally affordable, but more stylish options. These ones look amazing with trousers, jeans and skirts and add a classier look.
#2. Evaluate your denim collection
You may love your jeans, but some of us love it too much and forget to throw out those items that have tears in them or are worn out. If this is your case, try to have a closer look at each pair of jeans that you own. Analyse the edges, the area where chaffing usually occurs, see if they still fit correctly. If your jeans don’t correspond to legitimate reasons to hold onto them, ditch those, as they will only make you look tacky and cheap. Select though your jeans collection, throw away what cannot be worn anymore and try to purchase your items that fit well and are in style.
#3. Shop during end-season sales
At the end of the season, shops are virtually selling their goods for nothing. If you want to update your wardrobe in an easy and frugal fashion, make sure to shop during those weeks. Shop around during those intervals or you can just as well subscribe to retailer’s newsletter, if they are also based online. This will give you numerous occasions to find at incredibly low prices those items that you were hunting. Summer sales season usually starts in the middle of July and August works just as good. Winter sales are those to look forward to if you want to purchase yourself some great winter clothing articles. These start right after Thanksgiving and continue throughout the holiday season, and also in the months following. However, if you want to find all the articles that interest you in the right size, think about starting early in the sales season. This is the perfect timeframe to buy vintage and unique clothing.
#4. Learn how to properly layer
If you get a grasp of this skill, your life will become significantly easier and the options in your wardrobe, virtually endless. One top can be combined into a multitude of outfits, if you change between a casual cardigan and an office tailored jacket, for instance. Same goes for every other piece of clothing that you have in your wardrobe. Layering can also work when it comes to accessories, and if you learn this skill you will have multiple options to always look incredible and stylish.
#5. Accessorize the right way
Like it or not, accessories play a great role in your entire appearance. You may dress highly professional and stylish, but if your handbag is outdated, has tears in it or doesn’t fit the look as a whole, you will end up looking tacky. The same goes for your jewellery. Try to invest in delicate and subtle pieces that can be successfully integrated into a variety of outfits, without damaging the whole look. Try to avoid investing in multiple chunky pieces of jewellery. While they may look great in certain outfits, the vast majority will be spoiled by those. Accessories can be a valuable asset when it comes to your general appearance. Try to be increasingly careful when choosing those.
#6. Try a capsule wardrobe
Capsule wardrobes are incredible. They work amazingly in all circumstances and show a high quality and style sense. While for many thinking of such approaches in their wardrobes seems difficult, doing so is facile enough. Invest in clothing articles in classical shapes and neutral colours. You don’t need a multitude of articles, but several which can be combined. Several pairs of jeans, a coat in camel, and one in black, several pairs of boots and flats or sneakers, basic tops in neutral colours, and these can all be combined into some quite incredible outfits.
#7. Makeup and hair will bring the whole look together
Women that are great at doing their own makeup and hair seem to have a better style. So, before dismissing this suggestion, we advise you to visit a hair salon and see how your general look will change with a professional hairstyle or makeup. You don’t need plenty of product, only several ones, that will complete your look and offer it a more put-together air.
These are some small suggestions that will help you look better and update your wardrobe in an easy and intuitive fashion. Make sure not to spend too much. For this, we advise shopping during the sales season. The prices are incredibly low, for products that you couldn’t afford, otherwise. Makeup, hair and accessories also matter, if you want to put that glam into your outfits.
