Have you asked yourself a thousand times what you should wear today? And almost always conclude that you have nothing in your closet to wear. So, you go and buy more clothes and shoes, and when you have to add to your wardrobe what you purchased, you realize that you have a lot in that closet and that you do not know how to combine colors with accessories, or you have clothes in three different places, and well, everything gets complicated from there, right? It happens to me all the time. When your closet and drawers are cluttered, you cannot see what you have.
In those cases, the most important thing is to organize what you have by sections. How? Put all the long dresses together and by color, then continue with the short dresses, blouses, and skirts, and from there, organize it by type of fabric and then put them based on whether they have zippers or buttons, etc.…
So, the order goes like this: Size, color, material, and style. Do the same with the shoes; start with the most extended heels, then the color, etc… And if you are like me, the pants, purses, and belts will also be organized in that order.
The main goal is to know where things are, so they are accessible and easy to find. This is fashion, not heart transplant, so do not stress.
Remember that color is one of the best ways of determining whether your outfit is an ‘introvert’ or an ‘extrovert’ one. There is no right or wrong. It really depends on how you feel wearing that day.
Now, let’s talk about combinations. Try to pair no more than three colors per outfit, which includes your shoes and purse. When wearing accessories, try no combine metals.
Also, if you’re wearing something baggy on the top, wear something tight on the bottom. If you wear a blue blouse and white pants, wear a bag, a pair of earrings, and shoes in white.
In my opinion, it is essential always to look good. And only you decide what makes you feel good. According to psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner, author of ‘The Psychology of Dress’, you can use your wardrobe to change how other people perceive you, and even more importantly – how you see yourself.
You don’t have to wear the latest fashion; you must wear colors and styles that flatter your physical appearance and reflect your personality. Wear anything that will make you happy!
