A Signature Wardrobe is simply an outward manifestation of who you are. You develop it over time by adopting Wardrobe Purchasing Principles you apply when you go shopping.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Build Your Signature Wardrobe: How to look good and feel confident in four steps says “We all long to look like who we are, but it doesn’t happen by accident. It happens when you make practical decisions based on what’s appropriate and stylish for you.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for developing wardrobe purchasing principles.
- Note the items you love: Now and again, there will be items that you love and wear time and time again. It’s not always possible to buy extras or have replacements made, but if you can identify what it is you love, you can bring that awareness when you go shopping.
- Note the items you hate: Similarly when an item doesn’t sit right, note the flaws and remember to avoid them next time.
- Pick keywords: Some people find keywords help them find items that have the right vibe, like “retro modest” or “glamour grunge.”
- Make a mood board: Collect pictures of items you love. While the kind of big patterned, big-skirted dresses you wore as a child might not be the right thing for right now, you may be able to include elements of the style like large rose prints.
- Don’t buy stuff you don’t love: If you don’t love it, you won’t wear it.
These five tips will help you develop wardrobe purchasing principles that give you confidence when you go shopping, and reduce the stress of choosing what to wear.
