Wearing the worst clothing of the season could be a fashion faux pas you may not recover from. Fashion changes each season, and people can be incredibly cruel and unforgiving when it comes to their opinions on your styling choices. To avoid some of the harsher criticism that can indirectly affect many corners of your wardrobe, take a look at the items you hold onto and make sure that your style is not steadily stuck in the distant past.
Ensure that the clothes you have access to are all sorted neatly in your closet. A good way of making your life easier, and your clothing choices more selective is to sort the items into different sections. It may be useful to start by fixing items into a spring to summer collection, and an autumn to winter assortment.
If you don’t have the space, there are zip-lock bags that can be purchased that ensure your clothes stay safe in an airtight container until you need them again. That should free up space for your cyclic aeration of fabrics to always look fresh.
Once your clothes have been integrated into their respective places, it should now be time to seek out your favorite items, to see if any clothes that are left can be sold or given away. If an item has not been worn in the past year for whatever reason, then it is time to remove it from your collection. Your closet should be full of fresh and vibrant colors, and those items must fit, otherwise they end up wasting space or making you look somewhat unsightly. There is nothing worse than the dreaded muffin top, shirts that strain at the front, or oversized sweaters that are clearly designed for the larger frame. These clothes should be the first to go, and can be sold to make extra cash for that wardrobe fund or given away to the needy. If you are handy with a sewing machine, you may wish to use the fabric to make something unique.
Next in your new selective sorting is to see how many clothes are in an unflattering color. While grays and blacks are thought of as slimming, in reality it is the style of the clothing that can accentuate the positive attributes you have. From A-line skirts for women to short sleeved denim shirts for the men, your clothing choices should be picked for their attractiveness and how well they match other items. Picking out clothes that are bright or bold can draw attention away from unsightly areas you feel you should hide.
Finally, knowing how your closet shows off your personality, it can be important, especially if you are on a budget, to understand how one item of clothing can be worn on many different occasions. Pairing a fantastically fitted pair of jeans with trainers will suit daily wear, but they can also be teamed up with smart shoes for evening. Avoiding fashion mistakes is relatively simple with the right key pieces.
