How To Dress When You're Retired

 

 

Being retired can leave you a bit confused as to what clothes you need. With a more flexible schedule, your wardrobe can really consist of anything you want it to.

Again, leaving you confused on what to buy.

Heading towards retirement, or if you’re already retired doesn’t mean you have to transition to a frumpy or boring appearance.

You can still be stylish and love the way you look. Maybe even now, you can experiment some more because you have the flexibility and lifestyle to do what you please. So, you should!

 

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.

 

Wardrobe & Lifestyle Evaluation

When adding to your wardrobe, you want to have a good idea on the different pieces that are practical for your lifestyle and what your wardrobe is lacking, so you have a better approach to shopping and not wasting your money.

Investing In Your Wardrobe Basics

 

The first step to building a functional wardrobe is laying the foundation with the basic pieces.  You can wear your basics with everything in your closet, and these are the key pieces that allow you to wear the same pieces differently.

While your lifestyle may cater more towards casual clothes and shoes, you still want to give yourself a mix of both casual and dressy pieces to make it easier for you to dress up and dress down your clothes and keep you prepared for any occasion or event that pops up. And especially for date night or more formal occasions, you want to have clothes that’ll allow you to create a dressier look with the clothes you have and not have to either resort to an outfit you don’t love or make you feel you need to buy something. Sure, an LBD may not work for your day-to-day, but a more laid-back and casual LBD may. And then with your other basics, you can dress it up.


Or, a pair of heels may not be practical for your day-to-day, but they do make sense for date night. It’s always better to be prepared than left scrambling.
