How to always have something to wear

Always buying clothes but never have anything to wear? Step by step instructions on how to develop a wardrobe.

  1. Stop impulse buying.
  2. In the first step of cleaning out your closet, eliminate everything that doesn’t fit or that you haven’t worn in a year.
  3. With what’s left, begin identifying a theme to your wardrobe, relying on favourite looks and colours.
  4. Decide on a few colours that either match or will co-ordinate with what you own and buy only those three colours.
  5. Establish a workable budget.
  6. Make a list of all the items you need in your wardrobe. (For example: solid blazer, wool trousers, white shirt)
  7. Set aside an hour of time each week to shop.
  8. Avoid trendy items, buy clothing that will span two to three seasons.
  9. Try to add only one or two well thought out items per month.
  10. You can add colour and trendiness with accessories, shoes and handbags.
  11. Continually eliminate and replace essential wardrobe pieces once it is built up so that you are never caught without a necessary item.
  12. Buy more solids than prints – you won’t get tired of them as quickly.
