Agonizing over what to wear in the mornings is truly not fun! Especially when you’re staring at a closet full of clothes — struggling to put together an outfit — knowing that there has got to be something in there to create an outfit you LOVE!
We all have our favorite items… mine being a formal, classic black Ralph Lauren dress I own that just keeps on giving! (I purchased it years ago on a Macy’s clearance rack for $50)
A few years ago, I was given 24 hours to create a formal look for a national magazine shoot highlighting me as one of the top fashion professionals in Washington DC!
When I tell you… I pulled my favorite formal black dress out from a storage bucket underneath my bed and added an updated accessory; I tell no lie!
So why is it that we can have so many issues putting together an outfit when we know we have those awesome pieces in our existing wardrobe?
ONE – YOU NEED TO EDIT
You might need to edit your closet to ensure you can see all the current good stuff! Holding on to dated and ill-fitting wardrobe items just creates clutter and can make it impossible to find the things that truly work for you. Why? Because it’s stuffed in the back of the closet, and you can’t see it! I can’t tell you how many woman’s wardrobes I’ve audited, and they forgot their favorite jeans were even in there. So she’s been rocking the baggy pair that has faded and gives her absolutely no shape! Having an over stuffed closet can be the main reason why you are struggling to put together an outfit!
TWO – PERFECT THE COLORS YOU WEAR
Getting your color right is very important! All color is not equal when it comes to how it looks against your skin, hair, eyes, and even your teeth. Individuals are naturally drawn to colors they feel are beautiful. However, it’s very important to ensure the colors you wear blend with your natural coloring! No color should ever overpower your presence. I recommend looking at all of the items in your closet that you receive many compliments on. Use these items as a guide when buying new wardrobe pieces. I swear color can make all the difference in your appearance.
THREE – UPDATE YOUR ACCESSORIES
Suppose you don’t do anything else for a shopping season. In that case, you need to update your accessories to make your outfits current. For example, I love a good colorful statement necklace, but wearing them too much can date your look. The current trend is delicate pendant necklaces that you can layer or a nice bold chain necklace that you can rock with everything!
