Without a question, fall is my favorite season. The weather, the fact that I’ve resumed making stew, and the way the coffee has changed in flavor are all wonderful. But clothing is what I adore the most. I can’t wait for fall weather so I can start layering again, wear real shoes again, and switch out my colorful summer colors for earthy tones. I often have fall stuff, but it takes some effort to get my wardrobe ready for each season. I’m going to give you five choices today, along with some buying advice, to help you get your wardrobe ready for fall. Step One: Take your fall/winter stuff out of storage and sort it into groups like sweaters, long sleeve tops, jackets and cardigans, jeans and trousers, etc.
In addition, there are two strong reasons to keep your out-of-season apparel if you haven’t already.
To see what you actually have to wear this season, you’ll have more space in your wardrobe. After doing this, I noticed that I wore more of my clothes and experienced less of the feeling that I had many outfit possibilities but nothing to wear.
I’ve also discovered that putting items away for a few months makes me want to wear them again. Anything that I don’t like to see is probably going to end up in the donate pile.
Choose which clothing items should be cleaned, repaired, or donated in step two.
I am aware that some people may find it difficult to get rid of their clothing. I am the person who meets those criteria. Even though I didn’t want to wear them for the entire season, I used to sincerely enjoy the things I cherished in the past. Even if the garments weren’t precisely my style or were uncomfortable, I retained them because they were in excellent condition.
People keep things they don’t wear anymore for a variety of reasons, but getting rid of them is necessary to maintain a useful closet. Get rid of worn-out clothing if you know you won’t have the time to fix it. If you haven’t worn it since last year, throw it away. Get rid of the object if you feel any unpleasant emotions when you look at it.
Make a note of what’s left and try to combine the remaining shirts to produce three different styles.
For the past six months, I’ve been trying to put together a “mix and match” wardrobe. Because that term had previously seemed to be so elusive, I simply wasn’t aware that I needed to first perform some cautious browsing (more on that later). I now value having small seasonal wardrobes that just contain 24 items and enable me to put together a range of appearances. This method is quite helpful for those of you who don’t like to make purchases, even if I still enjoy shopping and still appreciate clothes. I made the following ensembles using just materials left over from the previous year:
There are many different ways to customize the chambray and stripes appearance, which I adore. Instead of boots, try it out with ballerina shoes. Wear it with tall boots rather than ankle boots. Change the positions of the shirts and wear the chambray over a light-colored top with stripes.
These stylish olive cargo vests are perfect for layering right now. Do you understand the three-step rule’s operation? If you want your outfit to look truly put together, try to wear at least three pieces—more is best. Dressing in just a blouse and jeans is substantially less interesting than, say, donning jeans, a striped shirt, and a vest. With a scarf, it will stand out even more. If the weather is really chilly outside, the striped shirt can also be layered with a soft, flowing cardigan for an exceedingly warm and snug look.
The rule of three has already been mentioned, and occasionally all you need is a stunning necklace to finish off an ensemble. Moreover, a lovely pair of shoes.
With just a few things, you may have some variation in your wardrobe, as I hope these pictures have shown. Is there room for that in your closet?
The next step is to make a shopping list.
Therefore, it’s possible that the stage three exercise was useful in highlighting some wardrobe shortcomings. Have you ever worn a top and bottom pair and wished you had a jacket or vest to layer with? Do you own a dress that, with a belt, you would want even more? Do you own a pair of shoes that are simply not the right fit for an outfit? What about the extras? Which seasonal fashions do you want to try the most? To make sure you have it with you when you go shopping, write it down on paper or in your phone along with the colors you like.
Every person has their own distinctive taste and collection of “staples.” I’ll offer you a couple of mine simply to get you thinking about how you may complete your fall wardrobe.
-Denim in black, dark blue, and medium blue hues.
a charming necklace
-Long sleeves with striped embellishments in white and black
-a tunic that is only one color
attire in black
-a long vest for layering, as a puffer vest or one that is now in style.
Baggage jacket (camel or green)
A jacket’s construction gives it
jacket over a sweater (feels like a sweatshirt, looks like a jacket)
Ankles of the boots
– Adorable winter boots
scarf with a patchwork or cable design
a pendant with a long chain
jewelry that looks good
Choose a few trends this season that you like, and try them out! For instance, I’d like to make my first attempts at cold shoulder sweaters and over the knee boots.
Visit a store as the fifth step!
This will be the part that is the hardest for some folks. I would advise trying internet shopping if you really detest going shopping or if you have children who find it difficult to try on clothes in stores. I advise the following methods for purchasing online:
-Continue making purchases from merchants that offer free delivery both ways. Nordstrom is excellent for this because of their broad range of prices. Order online and return in person when you have the time if a store you adore doesn’t provide free return shipping.
-Buy more products in a range of sizes and/or colors, particularly if you’re experimenting with a new brand. Even if there is a significant up-front expense, you won’t obtain value for your money. By doing this, you can avoid the disappointment of getting something you really want but it doesn’t fit.
-Find a few fashion bloggers who embody your particular style and pay attention to their advice! Some bloggers may even offer fit advice (size up or down) and fantastic styling suggestions for the item that you might not have considered.
– Display patience. Shopping takes time, isn’t always enjoyable, and it can be challenging to find the perfect item. I can assure you that you are not by yourself. It’s okay if you don’t get everything on your wish list this year. It takes longer to build a wardrobe than it does to complete a marathon.
Do you intend to start thinking about your fall wardrobe? Which further “staples” would you include?
