Happy Monday! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous weekend? I’m mega excited with today’s feature as the gorgeous crew from LookBook Store guest post by offering their top tips on updating your fashion essentials for the new season! Time to sit back, relax and discover how you can organise your upcoming wardrobe essentials…
With the changing of the season comes the need to update our capsule closet must have’s. Yes, you’ve read it right, so let’s take these simple steps on how update your wardrobe this season:
Step # 1. Take an assessment of your existing wardrobe
Nope. I’m definitely not talking about school assessment. But the very first thing to do before updating your wardrobe is to assess the clothes that you already have. You might have one or two pieces on your closet that you’ve completely forgotten. Believe me, assessing your wardrobe might be a little tiring on your part but it’s so worth the effort.
Another thing about assessing your closet is you’ll have a time to reorganize your clothes!! This can also help determine what colours you need to update your winter wardrobe or what fashion failures you’ve stashed away at the back!
Step # 2. Mix and match
A single piece of clothing can be a lieutenant to an army of fashionable outfits. The best example for this is a simple white top.
For instance, a simple white top can be fabulous by adding a chunky cardigan.
Or pair it with some jeans for a more casual look. And for a business-casual ensemble, take it up a notch by adding a coat and blazer.
You can also pair your white tee with a pencil skirt for an office look.
Or, wear it with some leggings for a funky street style.
There is absolutely NO fashion limit for a white tee.
Step # 3. Create your own personal look book
Take some photos of your new outfits to keep track of your clothes. Not to mention, taking pictures of your outfits can help you figure out which ones can be paired to create different ensembles. Plus, you can experiment with your picture perfect angle.
Step # 4. Add a belt
You might haven’t realized it yet but a great belt can be a thin line between dull and fab. So it makes total sense to buy a good quality belt this season such as this one…
Step # 5. Statement Accessory
What’s nice about statement accessories is that it can work well with casual jeans, and they can give an oomph to your office outfits too!
Step # 6. Patterns
Never be afraid to wear patterns this season
Step # 7. Leggings under dresses and skirts
Add a more playful feel to your dresses and skirts by wearing leggings underneath… it’s also a great way to stay cosy on those chilly days!
Step # 8. Add a vest
A faux fur vest adds sophistication to any of your outfits by giving that sassy rock-chick look.
Step # 9. Add a blazer
Blazers are by far one of the most versatile pieces you can ever own. They’re casual-, cocktail-, work-, school-, and date-friendly.
Step # 10. Sweater
Aside from sweaters being perfect for these cooler months, another reason I love sweaters is because they can be paired with skirts, shorts, pants — whatever!
