Are You Switching Up Your Wardrobe?

Posted on

Have you decided to give your wardrobe a face lift? Maybe you have plenty of clothes, but you have found that you don't wear many of them; or, you might realize that lots of your clothes have simply gone out of style. Have you chosen very classic styles in the past? Perhaps you want to add a bit of drama to your wardrobe. Whatever the reason that you have decided to make some changes in your wardrobe, from going through your existing clothes to adding urban clothing, here are some ideas that might help you:

Make A Detailed Assessment

Think of taking the time to go through every single item of clothing in your closet. If you don't have a long mirror, think of buying one, even if it's an inexpensive one, so that you can see the full effect of things you try on. As you put on each item of clothing, decide if you'll ever wear it again or if it needs to go to somebody who will. See if you can combine items to make them work; for example, you might have a broomstick skirt at the back of your closet that you simply forgot about. Now that cooler weather is here, consider pairing it with a pullover shirt and a jean jacket. That might give it the urban look that many people are favoring today.

Add Urban Clothing

If you decide you like the look of urban clothing, think of adding more of these options to your wardrobe. For example, for dressier events, consider buying a form-fitting dress in a very bright color. For casual events, wear that same dress with a black leather jacket and chunky, black jewelry. Think of going to stores that offer a wide variety of urban clothing items. If you're not sure exactly what you want, the salesperson will more than likely be able to show you things like skirts, blouses, and slacks that can be worn in a variety of ways. You should make sure to try things on before you make a decision about what to buy. For example, in the past you might have scoffed at a dress that obviously had a torn, fringed hem. However, after trying it on, you might realize that the dress adds drama to your look. The same goes with jeans -- you might fall in love with torn jeans that look like somebody threw them away. With urban clothing you might find that pretty much anything goes, as long as it's not too traditional.
