I’ve grown up a lot in the past year…
… and that maturity has been reflected in my style and sartorial attitude. I’ve started wearing less colour, consciously or not (that’s what red walls are for anyway!). I’ve finally streamlined my wardrobe into a few choice pieces that I actually wear… all the time. And I’m a lot more practical about what I buy, how often I’ll wear it and if it’s actually comfortable (!)- Goodbye 4″ heels!
Here are my tips for getting the most out of your wardrobe:
1. Buy carefully: make sure you can wear a new item in at least 3 different outfits with pieces you already own (you can see how much I re-wear above)
2. Look for comfort + quality: Let’s be honest- if it’s not comfortable, you just won’t put it on. I’ve become realistic about what I will and won’t wear and I’ve started to save money. Just because something is comfortable doesn’t mean it’s not stylish.
3. Invest in accessories: These are the pieces that make your outfit look chic and luxurious. Save up for that timeless bag or gorgeous, comfortable shoes for day or night.
