If you usually spend hours figuring out what to wear, you might need to refresh your closet or get some inspiration to make your everyday dressing easier. Tiny tweaks and cheap upgrades you can make to items you already own. So, keep on reading for the 6 easy tricks to revamp your wardrobe in one weekend or less.
- Clean everything out.
By cleaning everything out, you’ll strategically overhaul your closet. This includes deciding what to keep and what to toss. For any item you’re hesitant to get rid of but don’t wear often, consider what you don’t like about it. If it’s something that’s fixable or replaceable, set the piece aside and put it on your wardrobe to-do list.
- Take inventory.
If you always find yourself wishing for a pair of tailored black pants, a classy jumpsuit, or a pair of nude heels, you have a lot of wardrobe gaps you’re ignoring that’s why you find everyday dressing challenging. Just make a list of the holes in your wardrobe and add them to your shopping list so you can easily access during your next shopping trip. By taking the time to think about the next additions to your wardrobe, you’ll limit your impulse buys and help you get more outfits from pieces you need most.
- Remove pills from shirts and sweaters.
Once a garment devolves into a pile of pills, take action by removing them or toss the piece. Though you can get rid of the pesky balls by gently gliding them with a razor, if it looks worn out or old it’s time to buy a new one, so you’ll be inspired on your dressing knowing that all the items you have are of high-quality.
- Upgrade an item with new buttons.
If the piece has mediocre buttons like lightweight plastics or peeling faux pearls, try replacing them with classy looking ones. You may even find great detailed buttons at secondhand stores and craft stores that can refresh your favorite ensembles. For a classic look, you may even ask your tailor to add classic buttons to your blazers, shirts, or coats to make them look more expensive.
- Add shine.
Look at your shoes, belts, and bags, and accessories that hold your outfit together and decide what needs to be shined or buffed. Typically, most jewelry and belt buckles can be cleaned with professional cleaning chemicals, while leather shoes can be shined with cream shoe polish, and handbags can be buffed with lotion. By doing these, you’ll make your sparkles last longer.
- Brainstorm a styling fix.
If it feels like you’ve got nothing to wear every morning, it might be because you haven’t had the time to get creative with new outfits. So, take a look at the pieces you own that you rarely wear.
