Clothes clothes everywhere, and not a thing to wear. Am I right? Sometimes, no matter how many times you empty your closet onto your bed and shuffle through your various seasonal favorites, there’s just no getting away from the fact that you wish you could snap your fingers and swap absolutely everything you own for just one new outfit that fits right and looks how you want to look.
Don’t worry, we all feel that way about 10 times a week, and we’re told by the fashion experts in article after article that it’s normal to want change. Part of loving fashion is rolling with the seasonal, monthly, and sometimes weekly updates.
First things first, however. If you’re worried about dull skin or lifeless hair, there’s not a pair of shoes in the world that will help.
You may want to start with a little self-care, including exercise, a daily multi-vitamin, a good skin care routine, a hair thickener for thin hair, or even a totally new hairstyle. Then, we’ll talk about how to give yourself a style makeover when it comes to your wardrobe.
How to give yourself a style makeover
You don’t need to buy a new closet full of clothes to give yourself a style makeover. You can achieve your goals with some simple tips and tricks.
Your wardrobe is full of things that either kind of fit and kind of match or outright don’t fit and simply don’t match anything. But you hang on to them. Just in case.
The problem is that all these ‘just in case’ outfits become the “it’ll have to do, I’m late” outfits that we actually walk around in every day.
Worse still, we sometimes wind up wearing just a very small handful of things that we actually do like, which severely limits our wardrobe.
Once you decide to give yourself a style makover, here’s what you need to do. Gather it all up. Every single bit of it.
Make two piles–the clothes you wear and those you don’t wear. You’ve heard the rule: if you haven’t worn it in the last year, you probably never will.
Don’t forget the bras and underwear too. That means those stretched-out bras need to go. All you should be keeping are things in good condition.
If that doesn’t leave you with much, invest in some quality, comfortable undergarments, preferably made from natural fabrics, not synthetic. Think breathable cotton and bamboo bralettes and underwear, for example.
Whatever is old, very worn, or damaged should be thrown out. Items you don’t wear that still have some life left in them should be donated to charity.
This cleansing beginning is going to pay off. With nothing to rely on, you have to get your act together.
When assessing your wardrobe, and as you think about what you want going forward, keep quality and comfort in mind. These are clothes that will last longer, and you’ll feel better in them.
Basics and layering
You will need everyday jeans and nice going-out jeans. You will need a blazer or two, and you may want to look at some three-quarter length trousers.
From this basic set up, you can mix and match several days of outfits.
Shirts/blouses are another great layering trick, as they can be worn in different ways — tucked or untucked, side-knotted to give an angled hemline, under a bodice, etc.
Lastly, document it…
Take pictures of your outfits and create mood boards. This will give you a catalog of past inspiration that can help you to add new items to existing outfits.
Creating a fashion portfolio lets you take control of your daily clothing choices so that you can make better style decisions. Your personal style reflects on who you are, so every step that you take is crucial.
So, are you ready to start your style makeover?
Do you need to give yourself a style makeover? Are you in a fashion rut? You’re not alone. But there are simple ways to makeover your style.
To get your new look, you’ll have to apply a few new rules. To jumpstart your makeover, you should learn to get out of your comfort zone. You need to determine what looks good on you, and you have to learn to take risks.
