We all get bored of our clothes and think that buying something new is the answer, but it's time to change old habits. Don't go spending until you've learned to shop in your own wardrobe.
It's easy to get lazy, but if you have a proper sort through your clothes you are guaranteed to find at least four new outfits. Reorganise your wardrobe into sections (like in a boutique!) and it will save you precious minutes every morning.
Find Your Inspiration
Find pictures of the new season's looks and compare them with your wardrobe. Pull out as many styles and colours as you can that look similar to the latest trends and put them into piles such as 'tailored' or 'pattern' etc.
Don't think of it as a chore, think of it as shopping for something new and allow yourself to experiment with different looks. You will find it fun and a lot more rewarding when you realise how much mileage you can get out of what you already have.
Time to Layer
This is also the time of the year when you want to start layering; a vest, a top, a sleeveless cardigan, a jacket, a coat and a scarf to add a bit of colour and style. Wearing skirts will give you a sense of 'spring is in the air'.
Borrow a Fresh Eye
If you're really stuck then grab a friend or two and get them to 'shop' with you. Other people often see something fabulous in a piece that is old and boring to you.
Get Expert Help
Getting a style expert in is not as extravagant as you might think. When you consider how money you spend on wrong purchases and how much time you spend over what to wear, getting advice on what really works for you means a fully functional wardrobe, easier shopping trips and saving money in the long term.
