Most of my outfit stying doesn’t involve a very thorough thought process. I’ve typically got four little ones, myself and about 30 minutes to get out the door. Here’s a few ideas I use to keep it practical and fashionable.
- Simplify what you have. Keep clothes minimal and only keep what you actually wear. There’s no reason to keep items that aren’t in a normal rotation. You may be surprised, but I only have about 5 bottoms, 15 tops & 10 pairs of shoes per season. Not exactly a capsule wardrobe, but pretty simple.
- Keep clothes rotating through the closet. I put all tops together and all bottoms together. Clean laundry goes in on the left, and pull items to wear from the right. Whatever’s near the far right side is what I choose from; for the appropriate occasion. This is a good way to make sure all clothes get worn evenly.
- Pass on the obvious, go for the unexpected. Add a little pop to any outfit by pairing items that wouldn’t be the obvious choice. Below is an example. High top tennis shoes, ripped jeans and a blazer. It’s a mix and match game that’s so fun an adds instant interest.
Most importantly, where what you like. Be confident and you can wear anything and look fabulous!
