One of the key elements of a signature wardrobe is its appropriateness for the life you lead. Deciding what’s appropriate for you is important because clothes that don’t fit your life don’t get worn, and that’s a waste of money.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Build Your Signature Wardrobe: How to look good and feel confident in four steps argues “If you just buy random things, you might be fashionable, but your wardrobe won’t be functional or practical.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for deciding what’s appropriate for you.
- Clothing Care: The first thing to do is decide how much effort you are willing to put into your clothes. If you aren’t going to hand wash, or can’t afford to dry clean, just don’t buy clothes that require it.
- Climate: Take both your internal and external climates into account. If you live in the tropics, you will not need a heavy overcoat. But if you live somewhere cooler without adequate heating, you might want some thick layers for warmth indoors.
- Region: People who live in a City have different needs to those in rural or remote areas. Stilletos are fine for paved sidewalks but less practical for a rutted country lane.
- Activities: There are excellent reasons why your tennis outfit is very different from your horse riding gear. Think about the sorts of activities you do (e.g., bending, reaching, lifting) and choose clothes that won’t restrict the movement you require.
- Health: If you are in excellent health you may not need to worry about this. But if you have dodgy ankles, arthritic fingers or ugly scars you want to conceal, these are definitely things to take into account when you are shopping.
These five tips will help you when deciding what’s appropriate for you. A shorter list of options makes shopping, getting dressed, and doing your laundry much easier.
