How to give yourself a style makeover
You don’t need to buy a new set of clothes to give yourself a style makeover. You can achieve your goals with some simple tips and tricks:
Time to take the plunge
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 could be pushed towards wearing just a handful of things that we actually do like, which severely limits our wardrobe.
Here’s what you need to do. Gather it all up. Every single bit of it. All the clothes you don’t need, except for sturdy and comfortable underwear, like the ones from bamboo bralettes and underwear.. Put it in bags and donate it all 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, you need to take into consideration that there are items that you need to let go. There are also pieces of clothing that you should invest in, like high-quality underwear because style starts from underneath.
You should always invest in clothing with quality and comfort, because it will last longer and help you feel good about yourself. Quality underwear will not only help with your style, but will also make your life easier and increase your confidence.
Basics and layering
Basic t-shirts can be worn under a multitude of layering options. Build your outfit from the bottom up. 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?
