How To Restyle Clothing & Shop Your Closet
For many girls, shopping can be considered as one of the best therapies and is also a good cardio workout. The fashion industry is worth billions and the styles are ever-changing to keep up with the times and demands of the consumers. Shopping for your OOTD’s can be a great stress reliever but it can also drain your budget if you are not too careful.
If you consider yourself as a shopaholic, then you most likely have wardrobe pieces that can be worn for any occasion. If this is the case, then you do not have to go shopping every time you have a special event or party to go to.
Cutting down on your shopping expenses can be quite challenging especially if you love to shop. But trust me; you do not need a huge clothing collection or another pair of leggings especially if your clothes in the closet still have tags.
The best thing about making reasonable purchases is you will be able to save money and have more space in your closet. Re-styling an outfit for whatever occasion is not that hard and can even encourage you to unleash your fashionable and creative side. Here are some tips on how to maximize your wardrobe and still be chic and stylish.
#1 Organize Your Closet
Now is the best time to take a full inventory of your closet and see which pieces are still in good condition or not. This technique may take a few hours or so depending on how many pieces of clothing you have in your closet.
Check the quality of your clothes and see if there are ones that should be tossed out or pieces that can still be repaired. Organizing your closet will also give you the opportunity to fully check your wardrobe and make a complete assessment of your collection. It is best to categorize your clothes according to season or functionality or whatever works out for you.
#2 Maximize Your Basics
Everyone has their favorite pair of jeans or shirt for whatever occasion and it is important to take proper care of these items to make sure that they will last for a good amount of time. Play around with your basics and pair them with another piece of clothing.
Sort out your filler pieces and pair them with your favorites and you will be able to create a whole new look. It would be hard for anyone to notice that you have been wearing your basics often if you pair them with your filler pieces. Do not be scared to reinvent your wardrobe by mixing pieces.
#3 Layer Your Clothes
This is basically similar to mixing pieces and is very applicable if you love layers. Go ahead and mix up your layers and create a whole new outfit.
Invest in a good cardigan that can be worn together with other pieces of clothing like a simple wrap dress. You can also add a scarf if you want a more polished look or if the weather calls for it. If you are traveling, a handy scarf or cardigan will be the key pieces that can jazz up your plain outfit.
#4 Do an Inventory of Your Accessories.
Accessories can either make or break your look so you must pay close attention to these pieces. It is best to invest in the basics so you will be able to wear them on any occasion.
This is also the best time to detox your jewelry by throwing away anything that is tarnished or damaged. Store your jewelry pieces in a way that they will not get tangled or get lost in oblivion. If you are more organized in storing your jewelry, then you will be able to pick the right one that can go with your outfit.
Keep in mind that less is more and this holds true especially when you want to use accessories to invigorate your look.
#5 Take Inspiration from Fashion Icons
You really do not have to spend thousands of dollars just to attend an event or to revamp your wardrobe. You can almost find anything in your closet that can complete your look especially if you take the time to organize your collection.
Check out social networks or fashion magazines to get styling ideas so you will be able to maximize your clothes. The more you research on fashion styles, the more great ideas you will get to help you come up with an outfit. When you’re online doing your research, do resist the urge to shop for more clothes.
Use this time to get inspiration and just stay away from online shopping sites.
#6 Don’t Forget Your Shoe or Bag Collection
As you go through and restyle clothing in your closet, don’t forget to pair shoes with other outfits.
Some girls are into bags while some are shoe addicts. Instead of buying more shoes to pair with your outfit, it is best to start investing in the basics like a nude or black pump that can actually go with any kind of ensemble.
The same rule goes with bags not unless you have a lot of money to buy all the designer shoes and bags. Nude bags or pumps can definitely be paired with anything which is why these pieces are a good buy.
You really do not have to buy a whole new outfit if you can’t seem to find something to wear from your closet. In most cases, you will actually find pieces that will mesh and can turn into a unique ensemble.
Make it a habit to organize your closet and do a quick inventory and assessment of your clothes and accessories. Throw away or donate outdated or ill-fitting clothes and basically any piece that does not spark joy. Evaluate your wardrobe and look for pieces which can be paired with other items of clothing. Avoid hoarding and spending too much on clothes and accessories and never pay too much attention to trends or fads.
Instead, stick to the basics and the ones that will never run out of style.
