Most often, your wardrobe will evolve naturally as your life changes. Clothes don’t last forever, and replacing old pieces often provides an opportunity to update your look. I receive more than ten emails everyday from clients requesting a change of wardrobe. One client put on some pounds and needed a change in cloth size, the other just had a baby and wants a change of wardrobe. Not to mention many others who want outfits for specific occasions. So here’s a quick guide to lead you to your perfect Wardrobe.
1. FORGET THE OLD RULES:
There are so many old rules that you need to break if you want to build a wardrobe. To list but few:
- Don’t mix print and patterns: In present times, we mix print and patterns in very cool ways and it pops up remarkably.
- Always match your hand bag with your shoes/belt: We say play with color and look good. According to RUPAL, ‘Life is using the whole box of crayon’. ‘We are all artists painting on our lives upon the canvas of reality. Mix the colors your own way and apply emotion liberally. Do not be afraid to let your brushstrokes show. And above all else, make sure your art has soul’ – Christen Rodger.
- Do not match silver and gold: There are many ways to match gold and silver to get a perfect outfit.
- Women should wear only women cloths: In recent times, this rule does not just work anymore.
What lifestyle do you want to portray in your fashion? Professional image? Does your job require uniforms? Do you need to dress causal? Do you want to look chic? Which city/country do you live in? What is the condition of the weather in the country you live in? How often do you dress? Do you want a small wardrobe or a vast wardrobe? Are you a stay at home mom, a homemaker? These questions should be answered before or during your shopping time.
3. DECLUTTER YOUR WARDROBE:
There’s a previous work addressing how to do this, you can find it here. You will have to work on your previous wardrobe before you can build a new one. Know what you need to stay in your wardrobe and know the things you can get rid of.
4. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR MOST NEEDED OUTFITS:
It is fun to have a full wardrobe and it is even more fun to go shopping. But is painful to have a full wardrobe and you wake up every morning scouting for an outfit. Make a list of the most needed things before you hit the mall. Here are 30 items that you will need:
* Black Jean
* Blue Jean
* Nude pumps
* Black pumps
* Fun flats
* White silk cami
* White button-up shirt
* Trench coat
* Wool jacket
* Chambray shirt
* Biker jacket
* Denim jacket
* White T-shirt
* Silk shirt
* Breton shirt
* Long sleeve black top
* Turtleneck sweater
* Black dress
* Red dress
* Pencil skirt
* Fitted cardigan
* Knitted sweater
* Full skirt
* Shoulder bag
* Evening bag
These are the 30 essentials suggested for you, you can add yours and take out some items you do not want. Individual preference should be applied here.
5. CONNECT TO SOCIAL NETWORK:
Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! You really need to connect to social network if you really want to build a cool wardrobe.
Through social network you will get to know what the trend is, you might even get to know how to match colors and style yourself up to look glamorous. There are lots of social networking & fashion platforms to check out. Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest to mention a few.
6. CONSIDER PAST EXPERIENCES:
Whenever you go shopping or you want to build your wardrobe, learn from you your past experience. Let’s say you bought a six inch heel for a meeting, and it didn’t work out for you. Next time ask yourself questions such as; ‘why didn’t this shoe work for me?’ ‘Was it to high for me?’ Answer these questions then make sure you apply the answer next time you are shoe shopping.
This is an important aspect when it comes to shopping. When you contact mywardrobefix.com for the services of shopping assistant, this is one of the early questions you’d be asked. Set your budget right and have a wonderful shopping experience. If your budget is $1500, you are not going to buy just a handbag for $1000 or ask for 10 different outfits for a paltry sum. You Just have to set your budget right.
8. ALWAYS TRY IT ON AT THE STORE:
This is what I always tell my friends and clients. So I went to Target with my husband to shop for some pants. He picked the ones he wanted, I said to him ‘babe these pants look small to me’. Hubby replied ‘no, they are my size. I wear this size’. I said ‘ok, I suggest you go, go try them on’. To which he replied, ‘do not worry they will fit’ then we got home and not even a pair could size him. I said ‘babe, let’s take them back and change them’. Hubby said ‘no dear we do not have that time, we could give them out’. During our next shopping, I suggested he try on his new pants, he said ‘sure I’ll try them’.
9. ALWAYS ASK A FRIEND:
This is a very good way to get nice outfits. You could ask your friend what she thinks about an outfit on you before you purchase it. If you didn’t go with a friend, you can take a pic and ask her what she thinks about it.
10. INVOVLE A WARDROBE CONSULTANT:
That is why we are here for you. If you find scouting for outfits very stressful and you can’t just deal with it, contact a wardrobe consultant/online shopper. I would recommend WardrobeFix . You will get to relax, while we do the shopping for you and many more.
