Having a functional wardrobe that provides you with plenty of choices for all the events in your life is most important. Many people I know have wardrobes filled with clothes that neither look good not suit their lifestyle.
If you are one of these people, worry not! These are 5 easy things you can do to ensure you always have something to wear:
1. Invest in Basics
In the items that will make it easy for you to mix and match your wardrobe. These are things like your blue jeans, black trousers, a white shirt, tank tops in bright colors, a black pencil skirt etc.
They are plain, simple and classic – meaning they are not too trendy but not old fashioned either.
Having your basics in place will give you the flexibility to create plenty of outfits.
Here you can see – with 5 items we can make a total of 8 outfits – because the items here are all basic.
2. Invest in color
If you are going to buy a colored item of clothing – remember its better to pay a little bit more and own an item you can wear for a long time.
3. Accessorize Smart
Accessories can change the entire look of an outfit. You can go from looking dull to looking trendy with just a few key pieces. Trendy accessories are not as expensive as trendy clothing: meaning you can look trendy for less!
Also, its easier to change your accessories and get new ones than get new clothes.
4. Shop Smart
Its better to buy 1 item that will always look good on you than have 2 items that looks so-so. Choose items that will go with all your jeans and as many trousers and skirts as possible. This will give you more flexibility to create more outfits.
5. Know your style
Don’t buy something just because your friend/ mother/ sister/ sales person told you it looks good on you.Buy something because you genuinely like it, because it flatters your figure, your skin tone and suits your style.
