The 3 Things to Know to Have an Amazing Wardrobe
No matter what anyone tells you, there is not an exact formula when it comes to great style. Some people like to rely solely on body shape to give them the pieces they should wear. And I agree, body shape analysis is something you can always use as a basic foundation. However, not every person's body can fit into the 4-6 cookie cutter shapes. Then there is personal style preferences and tastes. Not everyone will like certain fits of clothing, certain fabrics, or styles--regardless if it's "recommended" for their body shape or not. Not to mention the roadblock of overstuffed and overwhelming closets that hinder outfit making abilities. If style was as simple as an equation, we would have a textbook that everyone could go by and no one would have any problems buying clothing or making great outfits ever again. (Wouldn't that be nice!!)
That being said, there are things you can always control to elevate your style and ensure you have awesome looks. A way to have endless outfits for every occasion, so you never have to say "I have nothing to wear!" ever again.
1. Knowing your personal style
The best place to begin to figure this out? Your closet. Pull out all of your absolute favorite pieces. The ones you feel great in and love wearing. Then take out all of your least favorite pieces. Analyze each group and look for patterns and similarities. Do all of the pieces you love maybe have the same length? Or maybe it's the fabric, color, or fit? All the people I help to find their personal style have a distinct pattern with their favorite pieces - same with their least favorite ones. Figure out what you love and run with it! Creating a Pinterest style board is another great tool in finding the patterns in your style preferences. Best way to unlock the secrets of your style? Hire a professional!
