Sometimes you may feel like you have nothing to wear or that you’ve exhausted your clothing options. You don’t need to spend a lot of money for a wardrobe makeover. You can simply start with organising what you have. There are basic steps you can take to ensure that you acquire a new outlook on the way you dress.
The first thing you should do is to conduct a wardrobe and closet evaluation. This will help you get an idea of what you already have and thereby how to use it effectively to fit your purposes. Sort out everything into piles. There may be clothing items that you’ve bought but hardly wear. Get rid of them. You can either exchange them with a friend or depending on the level of quality, sell them online. Get rid of clothing that is unflattering on your frame. You can then organise your wardrobe by grouping similar pieces together like long dresses, pants, work shirts etc. This will make it easier for you to find clothing items when you’re putting together an outfit.
The best way to find inspiration on personal style is to research. There are so many ideas on the internet and on fashion magazines about the latest trends, corporate dressing, haute couture Dubai outfits etc. Gather up all this information and find styles and certain looks that you feel drawn to. You can create a mood board depending on your selection and come to a consistent style. This is the first step towards establishing a personal style. To solidify this, analyse what you have collected so far and select items that go with each other or have a streamlined concept. This can be referred to as your personal style.
The next step is building a capsule wardrobe. This will contain about 20 pieces that will be essential to your personal style. These pieces will include basic clothing items that you can mix and match to create several outfits. You can come up with a list of all the items that you need on a day to day basis. This will make the process much simpler for you. There are also clothing items or accessories that are consistent or on trend no matter what time you live in. It can be referred to as a statement piece and it can be jewellery, a handbag, a well fitted coat etc.
You have to exercise a measure of flexibility and versatility when it comes to your daily looks. Don’t be afraid to combine different prints, textures, fabrics and colours with the basics you have chosen. Whatever combinations you choose have to complement each other to have a harmonising overall effect. Stay in the know with all the new trends and make sure you update your wardrobe often.
