Upgrading our wardrobes or our sense of fashion and styling is another way of maturing. Growing up can refer to the necessary changes in your professional life or your transition from adolescence to adulthood. And maturing means that your current wardrobe no longer excites you, and the clothes you wear no longer satisfy your aesthetic desires.
Multiversity recognizes that updating one’s wardrobe should be more practical. Here are a few ideas to help you upgrade your wardrobe in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Determine Your Style
Before you update your wardrobe, take some time to explore different fashion aesthetics and discover what truly resonates with you. Experiment with various styles, from casual to elegant, and pay attention to how you feel. This will assist you in defining your style and making more conscious fashion decisions.
Invest in Timeless Pieces
Invest in classic pieces that will never go out of style, such as a tailored blazer, a little black dress, and a well-fitted pair of jeans. These versatile pieces can be styled in various ways and are the foundation for creating a fashionable wardrobe.
Experiment with Various Silhouettes
Experiment with various silhouettes to see which one best suits your body shape. Try flowy dresses, structured blazers, wide-leg pants, and tailored tops. Experimenting with various shapes can help you discover new styles that flatter your figure and boost your confidence.
Figure out how to balance proportions.
Balancing proportions is styling your outfits to achieve overall aesthetic harmony. This is accomplished by wearing clothing that is tailored to your body shape. When you want to experiment with oversized or unusual shapes, make it a fashion moment by keeping the rest of your outfit fitted. Pair a tight crop top with wide-leg jeans, for example, or a puff-shoulder top with straight-leg pants.
Put on a belt.
Adding a belt to any outfit is one of the simplest ways to make it look more put-together. It’s also a great trick for balancing an otherwise unbalanced look, such as a long cashmere sweater and billowy midi skirt.
Check that your clothes fit perfectly.
Hiring a good tailor is one way to make any clothing look amazing. Tailored clothing not only looks better, but it also feels better. Dresses that bunch up awkwardly and pants that drag on the ground will not make you feel stylish. If your capsule wardrobe fits you well, you can experiment with over- and under-sized items in a fashionable, not sloppy, way.
Combine High and Low Fashion
Don’t be afraid to mix high-end and low-cost fashion pieces. Combining designer items with low-cost finds can result in a stylish and one-of-a-kind look. It’s all about striking the right balance and creating a cohesive look.
Patterns and textures should be combined.
The days of matching your handbag and shoes are long gone. Contrasting textures and prints create a striking fashion statement. Begin with neutral patterns like stripes and low-key textures like leather and knits, then add sequins and paisleys in small doses (like a scarf, tie, or clutch) until you figure out what works for you.
Don’t Forget About Convenience
While style is important, comfort should be prioritized as well. Choose soft fabrics on your skin and clothing that allow you to move freely. Your confidence will shine through when you are at ease.
