Have you ever had one of those days when you stand in front of your closet and are unable to find an outfit to wear even with multitudes of garments staring back at you? Or perhaps you find yourself picking the same outfit over and over again even with all the choices you have. If you have, you’re not alone. It’s quite normal to find yourself in such a situation where your wardrobe doesn’t seem to be working for you anymore.
If you find yourself moaning that you have nothing to wear even with tens of outfits in your wardrobe, or if you find yourself repeating the same outfit time and again, then it’s time to spice up your wardrobe. You’re probably imagining that this means you have to go on a splurge and get brand new clothes, but that’s not true. Working with what you already have, you can make your wardrobe look new all over again without spending a dime. Let’s look at some ways you can spice up your wardrobe to get out of this situation.
Sort through your clothes
First of all, it’s important to know exactly what you have to work with. So, empty your closet and all your clothing storage spaces and start going through the pile. Declutter your wardrobe by picking clothes that no longer fit you and getting rid of them. Next, sort away clothes that are out of season and store them away for a time when you’ll need them. After this, you’ll be left with fitting clothes that you need at the moment.
Refresh Old Clothes
Some old clothes are not beyond salvation and instead of getting rid off them, revive them, especially if you find that they may be helpful in putting together some outfits. Clothes that are lacking buttons or have loose hems are an example. For those that have faded out like black jeans, get a garment dye and have them looking brand new again. Take other dull looking clothes to the dry cleaner and have them looking fresh. There are also things to be done for old shoes, so make sure not to throw away something you can salvage.
Once you’ve sorted through your wardrobe, it’s time to get it organized. When your clothes are all neat and clean, they look more wearable than when they’re just a jumbled mess of wrinkled fabric. You can choose to arrange them by color, use or style. Use hangers for more space and to avoid wrinkling.
Accessories have a lot of power when it comes to appearance. The accessories you choose to wear with a particular outfit can either make or break it. When you feel that your outfit is a bit bland, try pairing it with things such as belts, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarfs and other types of accessories to improve the look. This will spice up your wardrobe and you’ll always have new looks to play with with your old clothes.
The next time you feel as if your wardrobe has nothing to offer, take a step back and think again.
