There are times in life, where for one reason or another, you need to change your look. These times of wardrobe transition can be difficult in more ways than one.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Build Your Signature Wardrobe: How to look good and feel confident in four steps says, “the progress of ordinary life is almost always a journey from one kind of life to another; uni to work, pregnant to parent, well to sick to well, and all these changes require a wardrobe transition too.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for a successful wardrobe transition:
- Remember you’re still you: Your circumstances might be different, but most of those little decisions about pockets, skirt shapes and colours will still be the ones that guide your decision making.
- Find a fashion mentor: Sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start, so find someone to copy. Preferably a live person you know rather than a celebrity you don’t. And when I say copy, I don’t mean in an exact
stalkerykind of way, I mean something you like the idea of and can adapt for your particular tastes.
- Develop a mood board: Collect pictures of clothes you like, and make notes about what attracts you to them. Use this information to start trying on new garments to see how they look on you.
- Make it gradual: Some days it will feel like you’re a leopard trying to change your spots. It’s a little easier if you start by adding the new things in before you start taking the old things out.
- Be persistent: Life always moves forward, you can’t go backwards. So when you’re having a hard time with your wardrobe transition, be kind to yourself. Take a break, but remember you have to keep moving forward.
These five tips will help you progress your wardrobe transition, and give you the confidence to step out in your new style.
