Build a Timeless Wardrobe
So, you may be wondering what exactly is a timeless wardrobe; some refer to it as a staple wardrobe. You can think of a timeless wardrobe as the foundation of your closet and personal style. It should reflect and support your everyday lifestyle. The first step to building a wardrobe is to clean out your closet. You could hire a stylist to help you with this process or invite a friend over to assist you. It's very important to be honest with yourself when purging your closet. A good starter question is "Should it Stay or Should it Go? It it's too small, too big, worn-out, or it hasn't been worn in the past 12 months then it's time to let it go----say goodbye! If it fits but your don't recall wearing it in within the past 12 months let it go. If it fits and you have worn it in the past year then you can keep it.
After your closet cleanse you want to focus on rebuilding with quality basic clothing and shoe items...adding a few trendy items gradually. The key to building a timeless wardrobe is to invest in classic, versatile, quality pieces that you can style year after year. It's fine to spend less on trendy items. But, wardrobe essentials are definitely worth investing in. It's important to invest wisely and save up for those pieces that you want to add to your wardrobe.
My approach to building a wardrobe is quality over quantity. Build a wardrobe that works for your everyday lifestyle and in cooperate a few trendy pieces here and there. This approach will keep your wardrobe timeless and save you money. If you have questions about how much to spend, where to shop, and what to buy----ask a Stylist!
