In the modern world, the way we dress and come across to other people has never been more important. Fashion and style are always evolving so it is important to keep up with the trends on a season by season basis. There is nothing worse than finding yourself left wearing last year’s outfit when your peers are sporting the latest catwalk designs. Turning up to a business meeting in decades-old brogues or a worn suit with fraying edges is a definite no-no, so here we are going to take a look at 6 ways to innovate your wardrobe.
Most of us will have a huge wardrobe but in reality, we probably only wear about 20% of it. Go through all your clothing and throw out everything that you have not worn in the last year, it might be difficult, you may have sentimental pieces, but if you are not wearing them then what is the point in keeping them? You must be ruthless.
Your wardrobe is now ready to be renewed and updated in your signature style, but maybe you are still lacking a bit of inspiration? Professionals from this website can help you to redesign your look, perhaps with a vintage style in mind, that will leave you the most trendily dressed in your friendship circle. Don’t be afraid to use experts to liven up your look, after all, they are doing it for a living. It may cost you in the short term, but in the longer term, you will be left with a wardrobe full of designs that suit you.
Once you have decluttered you need to start arranging what is left. Some items you will have barely worn at all and you may not even like them, so out they go. The rarely worn items you like should be placed in your eye line and the most common items at the back. You will then find that you have an almost entirely new wardrobe to wear, and your colleagues and friends will be surprised how you have freshened up your look and you haven’t even spent a penny!
4. Second Opinion
We all have that one friend who wears something that we think is hideous and we don’t understand why. Well, the chances are you are doing exactly the same thing yet it is going straight over your head and you’re unaware. Ask your most trusted friend to come over to examine your wardrobe and throw anything out that fits into the hideous category, no ifs no buts. You may not thank them at the time, as your pride will be hurt, but in the long term, it will leave you looking more dashing than ever.
5. Keep a Spreadsheet
This sounds far too geeky to have anything to do with your wardrobe, but by keeping note of what you wear you are unlikely to turn up to work every week wearing the same skirt and shoe combo or to hit the nightclub in the same crocodile loafers that you wear every week. Don’t worry no-one will know that you have your secret spreadsheet and that that is the reason you are so well dressed. We can keep it between us, you’ll thank me later.
6. Take Inspiration From Others
No-one wants to have an identikit look the same as their peers or friends, but this doesn’t mean you can’t take inspiration from what they wear. If you have one friend who always looks classy in stripes, you can try the same, just go for a colour scheme that works for you. Use magazines and social media to your advantage but try not to get sucked in, as obviously their goal is to make you buy as much as possible. You can also talk to your friends, and ask them what they think, maybe they have a bright idea that you never considered that will leave you looking as fresh as a spring daisy.
Innovating your wardrobe can lead to some tough choices as those well-worn sneakers or that tatty jacket may have to go, but this isn’t the end of the world, it is just the start of something fresh and new. Use stylists to your advantage who can tailor a whole new wardrobe to your signature look and don’t be afraid to speak to your friends to ask for a second opinion as they will only have your best interests at heart. Follow these easy tips and you will soon become the most elegant person in the office or nightclub and the envy of all your friends!
