How To Dress In Your 40's

What does your closet look like? Is it packed full of clothes? Does it take you a long time to pick out your outfits? Do you find yourself changing in and out of different outfits before settling on one that you’re ok with?

 

Your closet is filled with clothes that you like, but you can’t wear them, right?

 

Having a closet full of clothes isn’t always the best closet to have.  If your closet is filled with clothes, chances are, you have no idea what else you could add to your closet to make it easier to put together outfits.  You may feel overwhelmed by having too many options to choose from. Or, your wardrobe is filled with a bunch of random pieces, one-time wears to those single outfits.

 

In some cases, you’ll hear the phrase, “go back to the basics,” start from scratch and try again.  In your case, that’s exactly what you need to do. You have a closet filled with clothes but can’t wear them, so you don’t necessarily have to start from scratch.  Instead of continuing to add new pieces, you need to focus on getting back to the basics - your wardrobe basics.
