Spring-cleaning came and went. You gave away clothes to thrift shops and consignment stores and now you’re left with everything else. You love the clothes in your closet. You sincerely do, but style-wise, you just haven’t been feeling up to it. Where’d the energy that you once had waking up in the morning inspired to style yourself go? It’s time to refresh your wardrobe and step out of your style comfort zone once again. Re-style and reimagine looks from your own closet, because who has time for a trip to the mall right now, anyway?
Get DIY Happy- It’s time to tap into your crafty side. Looking up DIY tutorials is a great way to help freshen up your wardrobe and turn old style staples into new ones. Cut off the sleeves, make holes in your jeans, just do what you have to feel inspired by style again.
Mix Separates- Mix separates that you haven’t worn before and rock them with shoes and accessories, you never thought you could rock. Give yourself a goal of mixing separates you’ve never worn together, at least once a week. Turn it into a habit and see your closet transform.
Try Out Clothes You Don’t Often Wear- We all have those dresses and jeans collecting dust in our closets. It’s time to dust them off and give them new life. Wear them once and while, lady! Feel good about your outfit
Add Unexpected Accessories- Add accessories to an outfit you normally wouldn’t consider. Add spikey studs to a floral, garden party look and add dark lipstick. Your friends will start to expect the unexpected from you.
Play Dress Up- As a kid, I had a trunk full of clothes and fun accessories and would play dress up and act out scenes in my head. Now, it’s your turn to go back to those days. The best aspect of style is that it allows you to be whoever you want to be. So go in front of your mirror and have some fun! You deserve it.
