Happy New Year & welcome to 2017! This time of year is all about New Year’s Resolutions & we hear a lot about getting healthy with our eating, career changes & professional dreams. I'm a huge fan of all of those but I want to concentrate on helping as many women as possible add another important resolution to the list- upgrading their style. Why? Because we all know that when you look good you feel good & I have marked 2017 the year of perfecting your perfect runway worthy look.
There's been a lot of talk about self care in the media lately, and that's because society now realizes that taking time to improve & pamper yourself is more important than previously thought. With many women juggling career, children and family, finding time upgrade your look can seem difficult but I'm here to make it easy!
The first step in upgrading your wardrobe is creating versatility within your closet because you don’t always need a new wardrobe or a shopping spree. Believe it or not, sometimes you just need to think outside the box with your current closet.
I must admit, I am an expert at multitasking my wardrobe pieces. As a struggling college student and underpaid post college worker I learned the art of stretching you wardrobe items to the fullest degree. Not only did I learn how to mix and match like an expert, I learned how to do it without anyone even noticing.
When working on wardrobe versatility the worst thing you can do is wear the same pieces over & over the same way. Finding versatility in your wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to buy tons of clothes, but it does mean that the clothes you wear continuously have to be remixed each time so that no one knows you're wearing the same item you wore last week.
The first step to thinking outside the box with your wardrobe is getting the basics together- your closet… I found the brown duster I wore above in the back of my coat closet & decided it was a keeper. Even though I hadn’t worn it in a while, it still fit, it was still in season & I could think of some perfect accessories to go with it (like my matching booties).
It may sound tedious, but going through your closet & determining what stays & what goes is the first and most important step for building a versatile wardrobe. That’s the first tip but there are 3 other tips that will complete this process and have you getting the most out of your clothes in no time. I will be sharing these and many more styling tips at the Columbus Style Session on January 21st. Also, my special guest Kweli Burton will be sharing some expert hair tips to keep your hair healthy & growing in these winter months. I’m excited & cant wait to see you there.
