How To Rethink Your Wardrobe
I’m guilty of looking in my closet (a lot) and thinking “I have nothing to wear.” It’s easy to feel like you have nothing to wear — even if you have a lot. It’s also easy to wear something once and feel like you’ve worn it and now you’re not as excited by it. These days, especially with social media, it’s especially easy to always feel like you don’t have enough and to think everyone has something. My family and friends always feel like I have “so much clothes” and then they come over and realize I really don’t. Not saying I don’t have any clothes, but I really don’t have SO much. So, how do I always look like I’m wear something new without always having something new? I’ll tell you…
Wardrobe Refresh Step 1:
Change Your Perspective
Part of the problem when we look in our closets and think we have nothing to wear is our perspective. Whether it’s you worn the same jeans 1000x or if it’s because you’re comparing yourself to someone on Instagram who seems to always be wearing something new… there’s a reason you’re thinking this and even if it is partially true, there is (almost) always something to wear.
Wardrobe Refresh Step 2:
Mix and Match
Mix and match your clothes. Do you always wear your jeans with the same white t-shirt? Try switching out that t-shirt for a different one. Layer your clothes. Try a different color combo. Be creative.
Wardrobe Refresh Step 3:
Don’t Be Afraid To Try Something New
Have fun with your wardrobe and don’t be afraid to try something new. You might try something on and it might be terrible, or it might be epic. The other night I went to event for Dewar’s in Los Angeles and I felt uninspired by my closet so I just started piling weird combinations of clothes on until I found a fashion forward outfit that I ended up loving, and everyone at the party loved it too.
How will you now rethink your wardrobe after reading this? If you try something new, take a photo and send me it! I’d LOVE to see what you do!
