The Essential Wardrobe Hacks

Do you find yourself standing in front of the open wardrobe in the morning, staring at a pile of clothes and worrying that you have nothing to wear? Your mind registers the tops, pants, skirts, jumpers, and dresses. But at the same time, you can’t seem to decide on any style for the day. Nothing seems to fit. Nothing feels right. You know that the closet is filled with clothes, but your mind rejects every single one of them. It’s official, you’ve got a wardrobe cracking under the weight of the latest fashion trends, and you’ve got nothing to wear. While these two ideas can appear mutually exclusive at first, they are, in reality, linked by one crucial failure; the lack of wardrobe organization. It’s time to give your closet some much-needed love. 

Pick your basics once and for all

The secret to creating a wardrobe that works for you is to start with your basics. You need 12 essential items that you can use to create your style, day after day. Without these, your outfits lack support. Something such as a white tee, a little black dress and a pair of jeans are the backbones of every woman’s wardrobe. You should also add different pairs of shoes to dress up or down your outfits; namely, you need a pair of classic pumps, a pair of flats, and the chic and seasonal ankle boots to spice up your look.

Make room for your clothes

Nobody likes a crammed wardrobe that barely contains all your clothes and threatens to explode every time you close the door. If you want to have a better chance of picking your outfit in the morning, you need to work with closet design specialists, who can help you to build a space-saving solution. Indeed, a custom-made closet that suits your room and your decor is going to be more effective than a one-size-fits-all wardrobe bought in a shop. 

You don’t need to buy more

Ah, fashion! There are so many new trends this season. Which ones should you buy? Here’s a shock announcement for you: You shouldn’t buy anything. Indeed, buying fewer clothes forces you to build your unique style and use old pieces. Quitting shopping cold-turkey can be challenging, but it’ll save you a lot of money, time and space. Making the most of what you already own is ultimately what the real fashion challenge is about. After all, what’s the fun in being stylish is you copy all the looks from the magazines?

Tailor everything

Most people tend to lose their way on a shopping journey in search of the perfect fit. Here’s something disappointing for you: There’s no such thing as the ideal fit in high street shops. If you want your clothes to work for your shape, you need to have them tailored and adjusted. Savvy crafters would be happy to amend their pants and dresses at home. Others, unfortunately, have to look for tailoring services. Don’t be put off by the investment; wearing clothes designed to fit you perfectly is worth every dollar.

The modern wardrobe is minimalist. It’s a space for creativity, where you can combine old items together to build a new outfit. More importantly, it’s a space where you’re happy to pick your outfit, day after day, with the knowledge that you will always find something that works for you.
