You guessed correctly. If you have a nice wander around each store, you'll notice that everything that represents Autumn/Winter has vanished or is currently sitting on a rail marked 'Up to 50% off AND each retailer is basically getting us prepared for the coming season: Spring/Summer.
New collections have launched and just like retailers are revamping their store layout, it's time that we, as consumers and fashion lovers, revamp our wardrobes.
Planning your wardrobe is honestly one of the most stressful things ever. I still find myself pulling out my hair trying to figure out what I need to get rid of or what I just need to cling on to for a tad bit longer. The aim of today's post is to help YOU plan your perfect Spring wardrobe. We'll deal with Summer much later but here are some tips which I hope you find useful :)
Have a look through your wardrobe. What exactly do you have in your wardrobe? Have a clear picture of what you have, don't have and what need throwing out.
Make a list. Include new collection pieces that you're coveting from your favourite brands, basics that need replacing (white tshirts, black jeans etc) and long term pricey desirables that you've set your mind on purchasing. This process also helps in reducing your spending habits.
Stick to a colour story. Neutral shades should make up majority of your wardrobe but do indulge in that yellow dress! Work with the shades you have for optimal mixing and matching, keeping your wardrobe feeling fresh and new.
Core items. Your closet should never be without your staple pieces, your 'go-to' items. (We'll go more in depth with staple pieces in the next blog post!) Have about 4-5 basic tops that mix easily with skirts or pants. Remember, have as many options as possible.
Season updates. As soon as you've gotten all the basics out of the way, try experimenting with your style and finding out what works for YOU. Let loose and enjoy fashion. Invest in that colour-block handbag or a pair of wide leg pants, you'll never know what you can pull off unless you take that leap of faith.
Having that wardrobe plan is a great opportunity to evaluate what you do and don't need in your wardrobe. Embrace it and make it work for YOU.
I hope this post has been helpful. My next post will be focusing on those Spring wardrobe essentials.
Until next time,
