Do you ever dream about waking up every morning, going to your closet and finding just the right outfit? Not only is this outfit comfortable and stylish, but when you wear it you feel sooo amazingly good. The problem is you don’t have time to do all that is involved to get to that place.
You’re right. Having a beautiful wardrobe does take time; however, after the pre-work is done, it gets easy. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Preparation – Think ahead and have an outfit ready for every occasion – especially those of an unexpected nature. You never know when you will have to show up for some unplanned event. If you haven’t prepared you’ll have nothing to wear. For example, if you were invited on short notice to a wedding or a special event would you have something suitable in your closet? Would you have the right accessories? The right colour hose?
Streamline Your Wardrobe – Start by keeping only those clothes in your closet that you wear. Get rid of anything that you have not worn in a year and store clothes that are off-season. Secondly, declutter your closet and organize your wardrobe so you can easily see items that go together or put one or two outfits together on one hanger for those times that you are in a hurry.
Wear Your Best Colours – You will look healthier and more vibrant instantly when you wear colours that are in harmony with your hair colour and skin tone. Also, when you choose your best colours as your base, it becomes easy to mix and match.
Don’t Forget Makeup – You are not completely dressed if you aren’t wearing makeup. A touch of makeup is the ‘icing on the cake’ of a well – groomed woman. If you don’t wear makeup because it takes too long – practice applying it and eventually you will be able to do it in five minutes.
Choose a Great Hairstyle – A great hairstyle is one that suits your face shape, is a colour that complements your skin tone and is easy to maintain. Did I say easy to maintain? Oh yes, that will save you time.
