Next three steps!!!
Let’s Whip Your Wardrobe Into Shape!
After months of layering your clothes for the cold temperatures, it’s time to embrace the sunshine with lightweight fabrics, bright colors, and strappy sandals! But before you start shopping for all the fun, new fashions for summer, get organized! Make use of what you already have with these 3 smart tips from Lecia.
Make Your List
Now that you’ve evaluated your wardrobe, what you love and what you want to try, write down the specific items to look for when shopping. This is also a good time to quickly assess favorite staples that need to be replaced: jeans worn out beyond repair, a moth-eaten cardigan, black trousers that have faded to grey. I can provide you with a check list to help you.
Okay, Gals here’s the fun part!! I can help you comb the racks at your favorite haunts to find the best buys and most flattering looks.
Go do it alone or with your stylist!! (Me!!) Shopping with you BFF is great fun, but if you want to focus, go it alone or with your stylist!! I can maximize your seasonal clothing budget with the styles that bring out your best. I can shop with you or shop for you. Several of my clients prefer to try on their clothes at home. If you don’t want to shop from store to store, I can bring a selection of clothes to you.
Be Prepared Bring all the necessary items (Bra’s, Spanx, heels, etc.) with you to the store. This will help you make an honest assessment of your potential purchases. Each item you buy should enhance your wardrobe and make you look your best. These are things I can help you with.
Deals that may fool you Be wary of department store final markdowns and online flash sales. Their inherent sense of urgency makes it easy to get caught up in the moment, only to end up with something that you don’t need or doesn’t go with something you don’t already own. When buying something on sale, a majority of the time it is not returnable. Those extra wide leg high waist pants might look like a deal at $49.00, however, you could have taken that money and invested in an item that incorporates into your existing wardrobe. Stay focused!
One exception to the rule It’s true, when you are desperate to buy that one special item for that special occasion (wedding, party, black tie event) you can never find it anywhere. So if you run across an amazing piece at a great price, snag it up quickly, don’t worry that your calendar may be blank. A great fitting black cocktail dress will still be perfect when the occasion arises.
Know when to call it a day!!! Don’t try and squeeze all you’re shopping into one day!! I have worked in retail for more than 20 years, I guarantee that more than two to three hours in a store makes everything look great and weakens your resolve. So, if you don’t find what you want or need, there is always another day when you’re fresh.
Okay Let’s Create Your Outfits
Now that your wardrobe is complete for the season, it is time to create outfits. Take one day to organize outfits and you will save time each day getting dressed. As your stylist, I will help you coordinate outfits and create a look book from your wardrobe. First we will select outfits, from head to toe (Shoes, jewelry, undergarments etc.…), take pictures of them and post them inside your closet or wherever it is convenient for you. We can put them in a 3 ring binder so you can easily flip through them. The outfits that get the most compliments should move to the front of the book. This will make it simple to get ready when you’re in a hurry. As the season progresses, I can help you generate more ideas with a mood board. Or, you can collect pictures from your favorite magazines or the Internet; I will help you build the look from the pieces already in your closet.
