You wear the clothes, the clothes don’t wear you. What are you dressing for? I use to walk into my closet and randomly pulled outfits together. I didn’t put much thought into it, if I had to work I would wear clothes appropriate to working, if I was going out with friends I’d grab a casual outfit, and you get the point. My wardrobe was on autopilot but it never expressed who I was. Now my clothes each have purpose and are in a category and I love every piece in my closet. Today, I’m teaching you How to Build a Wardrobe Around Your Lifestyle…one that you love.
How to build a wardrobe around your lifestyle
1.You need a plan…
When you throw a party you don’t just tell people about it. You plan for it. You send out invitations, you plan the menu, make or order the food, play the activities at the party, set a time limit, etc. You need a plan for your clothes too. You have a closet full of them and you shouldn’t be saying you have nothing to wear.
2. So what are you dressing for?
When I start working with a Personal Styling client, one of the first things I do is a lifestyle assessment. I can’t dress them if I don’t know where they are going and what they are doing. I can put outfits together that they will never wear and that would be wasting both of our times. So we plan…grab my free download. Write down all the things you do in a two week time frame. I like to do two weeks because it gives you 2 weekends and lots of days in between. Some questions to help you…
Are you going to work everyday?
Do you work from home?
Do you have lunch meetings?
Are you meeting up for playdates?
Don’t forget about the grocery store 😉
3. Does your closet match your lifestyle?
Do you have clothes to wear to each area of your life that makes you feel confident, stylish, chic, cute, insert any word that describes how you want to feel here. Basically do you feel like you are going to slay the day with the clothes you have in your closet? Can you pair together outfits that go with what you have going on in your life?
