Does your closet make you cringe? Do you often find yourself saying you have nothing to wear? Many women really do feel they have nothing to wear, but that might not always be the case. When women say they have nothing to wear, they aren’t saying their closet is empty, they are saying they can’t find anything that makes them feel confident. Feeling confident makes all the difference in a woman’s mood, and how she interacts with others. Often, the problem is not that she doesn’t have good clothing, it’s that she can’t match it up. Finding coordinating clothes comes down to taking stock of what you have and what you need, then making it accessible. Women are busy. We don’t have time to spend sorting through our closet looking for a great looking outfit. We often wear the same outfit combination over and over because we don’t think we have any other options.
The best step to getting your fashion act together is to organize your closet. If your closet is cluttered and disorganized, you probably don’t even know what clothing you have to work with. Start by pruning out everything that doesn’t fit or that you never wear. If it doesn’t look good on you, why keep it? Next, sort your closet in a way that works for you. If you dress by color, consider grouping your closet by color so you can easily find coordinating outfits. If you would rather sort by the type of clothing, put all pants together, shirts together, etc. This way you can at a glance find your tops and bottoms. Another option is to sort your closet by style. When you are looking to dress for the occasion, you can go straight to the section of your closet that best fits. Now that your closet is organized, at a glance you can see what you have to work with. You should make a list of the staples of fashion you should keep. A great pair of jeans, versatile skirts, cami, and a dressy top are items you should always keep on hand to make any occasion easy to dress for.
Dressing for confidence is about knowing your body style and what colors look good on you. After organizing your closet, you may find some long lost treasures that would look great in a new outfit. You can look like you just bought a new wardrobe, when all you did is organize your closet. If you are lacking the key staples you need, shop the clearance racks and add them to your choices. Try putting together new color and pattern combinations to mix things up. You may find that a new look is just what you need. Organizing your accessories can also go a long way to giving you a great look. The outfit you never wore because it looked too plain might look fabulous with a belt and chunky necklace.
Taking control of your wardrobe and making your choices easy to coordinate can go a long way to making you look well put together and confident. Your organized closet will help you make dressing a breeze, so you have more time to do something fun, like shop!
