We’ve all been there – standing in front of the closet on a Saturday night, digging through the drawers, and realizing in horror that… “I have nothing to wear!”
This happens despite the fact that you are always shopping, and the cupboards are overflowing with shoes, bags, and clothes – we’ve been there!
So why is it that we can’t seem to put an outfit together when push comes to shove? Why is it so hard to pick a dress? And why did you even buy something that you are dreading to wear now?
If you have the same questions nagging you, it’s time to fix your wardrobe.
From Meh To Fabulous – Top Tips To Help You Dress For Success
Updating your wardrobe may seem like a costly endeavor, but truth be told, you can do it without breaking the bank. Here’s how:
1. Get Your Dresses Tailored
Clothes you buy may not be meant for your body type. If your closet is filled with clothes that are either too tight or loose, take them to your tailor to have them altered.
In short, you don’t have to spend money on an entirely new wardrobe. Just make what you have work for you.
2. Get The Right Accessories
Accessorizing with jewelry, scarves, bags, and shoes can breathe a new life into your appearance.
You can make any dress stand out with the right type of accessories such as a watch, a fancy belt buckle, and more! Pick something not too pricy and versatile enough to go well with several styles of clothing.
3. Check Out Your Local Flea Markets Or Thrift Stores
Buying fancy clothes from high-end brands can get expensive. We recommend visiting your nearest flea market or thrift store to buy wardrobe staples such as jeans, trousers, skirts, jackets, shirts, t-shirt, and other necessary items in tan, black, white, and colors that go with everything.
4. Buying Shoes Can Be Expensive
With a little bit of TLC, it is possible to have your favorite pair of shoes last for ages – so don’t throw away your old shoes just yet.
Take them to a cobbler first to find out if there is a way to salvage them. They are professionals who know just how to restore the good looks of your heels, boots, pumps, and wedges, etc.
5. Follow Fashion Bloggers Online
There are thousands of fashion bloggers online – each with their unique styles, budgets, and wardrobe suggestions. So there’s something for everyone.
Find your kind of fashion bloggers on YouTube and Instagram and get inspired to be in style without compromising on your individuality.
6. Get Creative
If you have a wardrobe filled with dresses that you no longer use, how about mixing and matching the pieces and coming up with something new?
This is an excellent way of achieving a bolder and more beautiful look without spending money.
In fact, here’s a quick exercise to spark your creativity: turn to your closet and close your eyes, now grab something randomly. Now your challenge is to make that piece of clothing work with your outfit. Find a way to wear it and work it!
7. Give Away What’s Left Behind
Having a clean wardrobe can do wonders for you – you’ll have a smaller selection to work with, so hopefully, you’ll get dressed faster as a result of it.
Besides, unused clothes and accessories are just distractions that get in the way when you are just trying to make some wise wardrobe choices.
We recommend you to donate them to the less fortunate, instead of letting them gather dust in your closet.
Now that you know how to dress up even in a ‘nothing-to-wear’ crisis, it’s time to put these tips to the test.
Let us know how your wardrobe has evolved over the years, and what you do to keep your dress choices fresh all year round.
