Winter Style: How To Wear The Same Clothes Differently
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.
How to create more with fewer pieces
It’s easy to think you need to have a lot of pieces to be able to create more outfits. But, that’s not the case. In fact, you can create more outfits with your clothes with fewer pieces when you’re strategically adding the right pieces to your wardrobe.
A large part of your wardrobe should consist of the essential pieces - your basics, core items because you can easily mix and match them with one another and all of the items in your closet. Instead of spending to create more options, allow your essentials to create them for you.
If you have as little as nine pieces, you can turn them into thirteen outfits. Your essentials are classic and timeless pieces that are always in style, each year throughout every season. Classic doesn't mean boring or outdated. Classic means that these pieces will always be in style. Once you add them to your wardrobe, you're set. And the only time you need to replace these items is if you choose to. These are the pieces that you can wear with anything in your wardrobe no matter the style, color or print. If you want to be able to wear the same clothes differently, these are the pieces your wardrobe needs.
Once you invest in these pieces, you’ll be able to put together different outfits around your clothes effortlessly. Their neutral tones and simple silhouettes make it easier for you to combine these pieces with anything.
