How many times have you opened the door to a closet full of perfectly good clothes, and contested, “I have nothing to wear.”? We have all been there a time or two. Yet while we are saying we do not have anything to wear, what we really mean is: we feel we have run out of ways to wear what we already own. And while our natural inclination may be to run to the nearest mall and pick up a few new pieces to “spice” up our wardrobes, we already have everything we need to do just that. So, I have put together a list of four things you can do to get re-inspired by your closet.
1. Change one thing about your outfit after you put it on. So you are on the way out the door to hang with the girls, and you are looking in the mirror. You look fine, but you don’t look fineeee, but you only have a few minutes before you are on CP time. Yet, you race out the door anyway. NO. Small changes that make a large impact can come from anywhere i.e. blouse, pant, eyewear, etc. If you are looking in the mirror dissatisfied about event he smallest thing, change it! It’s that simple, something as small as throwing on another shirt, or putting your hair up, opposed to down can make an outfit more interesting and satisfying to the eye.
2. Pull out accessories you don’t usually wear. Do you remember that scarf you bought two years ago that you haven’t worn since, or the purse you bought for a steal at Marshall”s? Bring them out again! Oftentimes, we forget that an outfit is so much more than the base; top, bottom, shoes. It’s hair, makeup, and accessories.
