How To Re-Fall In Love With Your Wardrobe

I very much enjoy adding new pieces to my wardrobe and continually updating my style. However, on a college budget this is not always feasible. Also, as we have been told time and time again 'less is more' so it is not necessarily advisable to buy new clothing even if you do have the money.


So what is a girl to do when she is feeling like there is nothing to wear? Today I'm going to share my favorite ways to become re-inspired with your wardrobe.

  • Take a look at everything you have. Yes, everything. If you don't keep all of your clothing in the same place this is especially important because it is easy to forget about items you don't see on a regular basis. You may very well discover a hidden gem to wear!
  • Remember why you bought certain things in the first place. At one time you must have seen something in each garment you own so it can be as easy as reminding yourself what it is to feel re-inspired. Notice the detailing on that blouse or the buttons on those jeans and fall in love with them again.
  • Try new combinations. Everyone is guilty at some time or other of getting into a rut with the outfits she wears. If you've always paired that top with that skirt, try something else! Wear it with jeans and layer on a jacket. Take a completely new approach to your outfits and you'll find more combinations then you imagined you had. Getting inspiration from Pinterest is especially helpful in this endeavor (check out my Wear board here). 
  • Explore your accessories. If you have some bracelets, scarves, and necklaces pull them out and see what you can do with them! Just like trying new combinations with your actual clothing, use accessories to change up your standby outfits. 

Now I know that these suggestions are by no means groundbreaking, but they can be helpful if you are willing to look at your wardrobe through new eyes. Make a serious effort to be creative and you'll find that you already have a lot to work with.

What do you do when you feel like you're in a style rut?

  2. Trying new combinations is key to me! I tend to always wear the same outfits and then to get bored with them! I recently wrote a post about "smart shopping" that complement your post if you're interested :) http://emilietalks.blogspot.ca/2015/02/smart-shopping-saves-you-money.html
