With the love and evolving of fashion, it is not a sin to change your wardrobe once in a while. It is wise to consider one's budget and an individual style before building a wardrobe. Lack of doing this will lead to many mistakes in the future. Change of the wardrobe is something that you will need to live with so a lot of practice is required. Shopping skills are also a plus.
Here are the steps you need to follow when building a wardrobe:
1. Evaluate your lifestyle-
You need to find out several things about yourself.
• What kind of environment do you live in, Is it professional or at home?
• Do you still go to work stay-at-home or retired?
• Where do you live? Could be in the city, suburbs among other places
• Is the place you reside in warm, cold, hot or windy?
• How do you spend your free time? What activities do you engage in?
• Do you dress up every so often?
• What size of a wardrobe do you want, is it small or huge? It is important to note these questions down as you are going shopping. Make sure you answer them sincerely since they will help you make better decisions while shopping. At the end of the day, you will shop for items that you will have fun and contention while wearing.
2. Do a thorough cleaning to your closet-
There is no meaning in staying with something that you do not wear forever. It is, therefore, important to throw away everything that does not interest you. There are those things that you really value and somewhat you never used them, a good piece is advice is to sell them on eBay. This will enable you to get some good cash to help you carry on with building your new wardrobe. For those clothes that you don’t need and can’t sell donate them to charity and give friends and family.
3. What are your core pieces?-
These are those clothes that build the base of your wardrobe. They are the pieces you can’t live without. It is, therefore, wise to list them down. This will help you to make a better judgement as you go shopping. They also are the most expensive part of your wardrobe so it is proper to prepare yourself financially. Depending on what your core pieces are tried and build your closet around that but make sure you have as much fun as possible. Also, make sure you incorporate various colours and different prices.
This is the most important part of the whole idea. You must work with what you have at hand do not buy items with money that has not been budgeted. Be sure to cut cost as much as you can this is because the lesser the budget the more selective and cautious you are while buying.
5. Pinterest account-
These are the best tools and the most helpful if you want to stay on the current fashion trends. Go ahead and create your style sheets but do not think of the benefits you will acquire. Take this as a platform to find out what kind of fashion moves you. Finding out what suits you is exercise so you have to be patient and have fun while at it. Don’t get stuck with one style, try to be a good researcher and have fun with the styles until you get one that fits your personal style. Take a look at amazon collections.
Never forgets about your past try as much as possible to think of the old styles and why they did not fit you. There is something about those clothes that you really liked. Use that information and try to relate to it every time you buy something new.
7. Try it on-
There is a high possibility that you will be misled if you buy clothes without fitting. It is, therefore, wise to fit clothes so that with time you will identify what you like. You should also look at the labels so that with time you will be able to tell your style and size without much struggle.
Photos are a great way to tell how you really look. They help you make your own judgments without relying on what others see or what the mirror tells you. Take a friend with you while you are shopping and ask them to take snaps of you with your new clothes on. If you go shopping on your own then take selfies. This way you will make a better verdict and the best thing is that you can save the image for later.
Everyone has that friend who they admire how they dress. Approach that friend and ask to take them for a cup of coffee. Then go ahead and kindly enquire about their style. Be upfront with them on your wardrobe building and ask for tips. Ask them to take you with them for shopping .Make sure that you derive as much information as you possibly can.
10. Forget the style rules-
This is simple as long as the outfit you choose to wear makes you happy and fits you well then go ahead and have it. Do not let what people think about various styles deter you from having fun wearing what pleases you.
11. Widow shop-
Yes you heard it right, it is very important to go shopping without enough money. By doing this you avoid impulsive buying. This helps you take into consideration all the things you remember after the window shopping. You will also save money and your wardrobe will be full of clothes you should wear.
12. Professional assistance-
In this day and age there are professionals in every sector of our daily lives. So what should hinder you from seeking the help of a closet organizer? I don’t think there is, in fact, an expert will identify your problems and help you find their solutions. You will also have someone to give you a genuine opinion of how you look.
