If you’re like me, your closet isn’t the most stunning. I can tell you from experience that it’s easy for a wardrobe to be filled with pieces that don’t look good together and even more difficult to pull together an outfit that feels like it’s been put together just for you. It takes some time and effort, But with a little help from a few pros, we’ve found makeover tips that will help you love everything about your wardrobe—no matter how big or how small it is.:
Pick a color you love.
- Pick a color that makes you feel confident and comfortable in your skin. Your wardrobe should reflect this, so choose a kaftan collection that matches and complements the look and feel of who you want to be. If it’s pink, wear it; if it’s red, rock it! Make sure it fits within the theme of what we’re going for here: confidence!
- Make sure the color of each piece complements each other (e.g., don’t mix blue jeans with red shirts).
Wear tailored clothing that flatters your body type.
We’ve all heard the saying that “form follows function.” While this is true, finding clothes that look good on our bodies can be hard. In fact, we often see women who have confidence in their appearance because they know what looks good on them and how to wear it well. Wearing tailored clothing is one way to boost your confidence by ensuring that your clothes fit correctly, accentuating your figure while still being comfortable enough for daily activities.
Add a few key pieces to add style to your wardrobe.
Key pieces are the items you need to look good in everything you wear. They’re the ones that can transform an outfit from drab to fab, and they’re often the most fun part of your wardrobe.
To add key pieces to your wardrobe:
- Choose a few key pieces (like blazers, cashmere sweaters, and leather jackets) that stand out from each other but don’t overwhelm the rest of your clothes. This makes it easier for people who see all these items together to know which one is yours without guessing which one is theirs!
- Pair them with other outfits, so they work well together and individually—for example, layer up a casual summer dress with a lightweight cardigan and then throw on a pair of ballet flats or heels. Now you have an adorable weekend look. Layer tank tops and tees under bulkier sweaters to give you more layering options without feeling bulky. Similarly, layer shirts under vests, jackets, or outerwear to create new outfits from your existing closet.
Pull it together with quality accessories.
Accessory-wise, you have a few options. You can wear a bold statement piece or add interest to your outfit with an attention-grabbing accessory.
Accessories are great because they allow you to make subtle changes to an outfit without completely changing it up. If you want something more unique than what’s on trend this season, then adding an accessory like a hat or scarf could be all that’s needed!
Accessories can also help match your personality and style preferences; if there’s anything we’ve learned from our years of styling clients’ wardrobes, it’s that no two people are alike! We’ve seen women who prefer muted tones wear neutral shoes, while those who love bright colors opt for sneakers instead (or even both!). The same applies when choosing accessories: think about how each piece is going into the final look before deciding whether or not its right choice matches yours!
Buy outfits, not just individual pieces of clothing.
A simple outfit can be the key to a great look. If you’re going for an effortless, minimalist look and feel, then you must have clothes in your wardrobe that work together well—and those clothes should all be variations on one theme: “simple.” This means no statement jewelry or accessories; no bold prints; no loud colors; no ruffles or lace (unless they’re part of a dress).
In other words: no busyness! Instead, focus on neutrals like white and black and earth tones like browns/tans/blues. These go with everything else, so they’re easy to mix into something new each day without thinking twice about what will go best when paired up with different pieces throughout the week (or month). Because these items are simpler than those mentioned above, they make dressing up easier and allow more options overall since there aren’t so many choices within each category, like shoes/bags, etc., making budgeting easier!
Be honest with yourself.
I’ve never met a person who dresses well daily. We all have our style, but it can change from day to day and season to season. Try to be more honest about what your style is. If you love beautiful prints and colors, stock up on fun summer dresses and tops, but if you’re a classic chic girl, think about packing more classic little black dresses and blouses for your trip.
Embrace the “less is more” approach
Most of us tend to over-adorn ourselves, which means less room for adding more pieces and accessories. Start by keeping your staples, such as black skirts and trousers and white button-downs, and then build on to that with more items that will stand out. A leather jacket, a bright scarf, a denim piece, or even a printed dress are just some suggestions that you can use to help you branch out from drab to fab.
Look for the pieces that easily transition from day to night or from one season to the next, so there’s no need to buy two or three different outfits for each type of event.
With these tips, you can start having more confidence in your wardrobe and how you look. This is a great way to boost your confidence because it gives you that extra edge when meeting new people or going on dates. The key is knowing what works for you and ensuring that everything fits well so no one can see any flaws!
