How To Mix And Match Your Wardrobe

How To Mix And Match Your Wardrobe

Do you have limited space for a wardrobe? Or even you don’t want to spend too much on clothes and want every piece of clothing to count? No matter what the reason is, you could simply organize your wardrobe through a method named capsule dressing which would help you dress to impress but by spending less. It is a simple three step process so here it is.

1. Create your colour palette

First of all you need to find a colour that best suits you. This will depend on your skin tone, hair colour, eye colour etc. Pick out colours that would accentuate your best features. For example, if you have big blue eyes, pick out blue shades. If you have red hair, yellows and greens will suit you best. Along with your base colours, choose a few complementary colours and also neutrals such as black, white or gray to go with it. You can get help from magazines, websites or simply ask a friend for advice.

2. Build your wardrobe

Now that you have selected your colour palette, it’s time to go shopping. Buy a few tops; one needs to be a long sleeved button down shirt for official wear, one should be a short sleeved shirt that you could wear for casual outings and the other should be a tank top or other sleeveless shirt. These three are a must and the rest you could pick out anything you like. It would be easier to mix and match if you avoid prints. If you do like them, buy one shirt with a print, not all. Now you need to pick out some bottoms, mostly in neutral colours. These should include a pair of dressy pants, denim jeans and maybe a skirt. You could also add a few extras to your wardrobe by buying a dress such as maxi dresses for special occasions; probably in the base colour and a neutral coloured jacket or sweater. Pick out some shoes and sandals along with accessories to match your outfits.

3. Mix and match

So now you could have fun mixing and matching. Always keep a formal outfit and casual outfit ready. You could even experiment by transforming a casual or funky outfit to a formal one. For example, if you have sleeveless jumpsuits Melbourne, of course they would be perfect for an evening outing but put on a blazer and a pair of heels and there you go! You have a formal yet elegant outfit, perfect for a business meeting or conference.

You can follow these three easy steps to transform your entire wardrobe into something useful. Keep what you can wear and give out the rest of your old clothes to charity so that you will only keep what is useful to you.
