So I don’t know about where you live, but here in Georgia global warming is real and Summer is as been longer than ever. However, Fall is till around the corner and its time to start prepping your wardrobe for for the season change or at least finding a balance. Ill go deeper into Fall Trends and Style Staples next month, but this is a good place to start!
- Create a Mood
One of the most important things to do when preparing you wardrobe for a new season is deciding how you want to look this season. Don’t have a clue? Start by getting inspired by trends. See whats in for the upcoming season and use that to build a foundation. Personally I’m excited to incorporate super cute flat forms and slogan statement tees heavy into my casual looks this season. I also plan to keep the party going on lingerie as looks for me. Check out your favorite magazines and fashion sites for trends.
Another thing to help you develop your mood is your actual mood! How do you want to portray yourself this spring? What do you want your looks to say about you as you enter the room? Create a mood board to help guide you.
- Asses What You Have
Once you know what statement you want make, asses your closet to see what you have that fits the mold. On a day when you have the time, go through your closet completely. Keep in mind the style statement you want to make. Everything that aligns, keep it! Things that you loved last spring and staples, keep those as well. Everything else, let it go. Sell it on apps like Postmark or Depop (check out my closet here if you want to shop my looks) or simply do a good deed and donate it to your favorite charities.
3.Aquire and Style
Now that you have a mood and an idea of what you have, its time to acquire the pieces to complete your style statement. Start by making a list of the items you’d like to incorporate that you’re lacking. Next make a budget. You don’t want to break the bank trying to look good. So set your limit and prioritize the pieces on your list so that you can assure you get the most bang for your buck and if not everything on your list, at least your must haves.
(This skirt from Maxberry.com is a prime example of a great transition)
Once you have all your pieces, start to style them. Ive learned from blogging that creating looks a head of time eases the process when its time to get dressed for events. Having an idea of several ways to style your pieces will keep you looking effortlessly stylish all season!
