When Adding Something New To Your Closet
Hi everyone- I hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Christmas. Make your list and check it twice! Thank you so much for all the kind compliments on Leann Rimes in the green circle dress.
It has been so cold in the last few days in Dallas! We are all trying to stay warm. Do you remember this Alexander Wang sweater that I wore in a previous post with the vintage Chanel skirt? The look was much dressier. Here I’m wearing the sweater again but this time I styled it more casually by putting it on with a t-shirt and skinny jeans. I love to keep my closet full of items that I’m able to wear again and again and to mix and match with different things I already own. There is no point in spending money on garments that you only can wear once.
The advice that I give to all my clients is when adding something new to your closet, always make sure you can style it 4 or 5 different ways by switching out the accessories. I always recommend items that can function well during the day and transition into a night outfit as well. That way you will wear it more than one time.
Here is my example of how I styled the Alexander Wang sweater when I added it to my closet.
Look 1: pair it back with a pencil skirt
Look 2: wear casually with skinny jeans and t-shirts
Look 3: mix silhouettes and pair with wide legged jeans and t-shirts
Look 3: mix textures and wear with high-waisted silk pants
Look 4: create a whimsical look and wear over a flowing dress
Look 5: add a little sex appeal and wear with an A-line leather skirt.
When you have trouble making a decision about whether or not you should buy an item, make a list in your mind or write it down. Put the item on hold so that you know you can always can come back and buy it. Then, when the pressure is off, look into your closet. Is the item compatible?
