Get To Know Your Wardrobe

Ladies, meet your wardrobe. And, by that I mean, in fact I whole-heartedly recommend, you delve in deep and see what’s actually there. I love, love, LOVE sifting through and finding that thing I forgot I had. It sparks a creative surge to see what I can make of a new, hidden and potential gem.

On the whole, however, we are all guilty of wearing the same several pieces over and over. Having a stream-lined wardrobe certainly makes life so much easier and straight-forward. And, it has to be said, having a good ‘ol clear out is ever so cathardic to get that desirable pared down wardrobe. But, when I clear a client’s wardrobe, there are always 3 piles: keeping, going and a ‘potential’ pile. That final pile is where you can roll up your proverbial sleeves and get thinking outside the box. As in, ‘How can I make this work better and get it in regular wearable rotation’?

Those formerly hidden items should be thought of in terms of how to be altered and what additions can be made to bring out its best attributes. Think of what you can do to it or add to it to make it a go-to piece that will earn its keep in your day-to-day wardrobe. Adding a few things to make your frequent wearers tick over a bit more nicely is not really just a bonus, but more of a necessity. I am certainly not recommending stocking up to overflow level, but adding and altering smartly to make your wardrobe special and less run-of-the-mill.

Why not let loos your creativity and see what amendments can be made to make your look unique. As I have said before, fashion favours the bold! And remember, renew and reuse!!
