How to...Shop Your Closet!

Do you take your wardrobe for granted?  Are you tempted by what's new, often forgetting what you've already got?  Do you find yourself wearing the same 'outfits' again and again?    

We all lead busy lives, and finding the time to sort out and streamline our wardrobes can be difficult if not impossible.  However, in today's straitened times it makes financial as well as fashion sense to shop our closets - one of the most popular services among my clients is my styling service where we create a wardrobe of new looks from their current clothes.    

So, before you hit the stores this season, try playing with the pieces you already own. Even the smallest change can alter the overall effect of an outfit and bring it up to date. 

To help get you started, here are a few pointers courtesy of Vicki Archer at French Essence...

  • Become reacquainted with your clothing.  Know what's in your wardrobe!  It's surprising what we forget.

  • Take everything out of your wardrobe and drawers and rearrange it.  Swap the prime positions around so that you 'force' yourself to look at things differently. 

  • Try things on.  Mix up colour combinations and styles. And don't forget those accessories!

  • And whatever you do, don't save things for best!
