In a world of fast fashion where trends have the lifespan of a fruit fly, it is very easy to lose track of who you are, fashion-wise. You have to have a strong personality and resist the urge to buy something just because it looks cute at the moment, otherwise you will end up with a closet full of clashing items at the sight of which you will feel desperate, constantly saying: “I have nothing to wear.” In order to avoid that, it is crucial that you sit down, think about who you are and what it is you truly wish to wear, what reflects your personality and more importantly, lifestyle. Once you have figured that part out, follow these suggestions for a headache-free closet.
When in doubt, go minimal. Minimalists have the easiest time getting ready to leave the house any time of day. This is all thanks to a well-chosen colour palette, consisting of grey, black, beige, white and dark blue items, which are above all, well-tailored. A splash of colour is encouraged in the accessories arena, where you can be a bit bold when it comes to the colors and patterns of your bags and shoes. This style is perfect for a person who leads a busy life, yet wishes to be polished and sophisticated at all times.
The Noticeable One
If you are the creative type who likes to turn heads as you walk down the street, expressive is your style. You are not afraid of embracing colours, patterns, making every day a mix and match day. The thought of mixing stripes with florals fills you with a child-like excitement and you cannot wait to show your new yellow tote off. Sure, perhaps you will make some mistakes on your way, but you are unique nevertheless, and that is all that matters to you. For more inspo head over to Buzzfeed.
The Rock Princess
Your favorite item of clothing is your leather biker jacket. You yearn for adventure and freedom and are not afraid of embracing your bad-ass self. Sounds familiar? If it does, then girl, you need to get those leather pants and those washed-out jeans and rock them like there is no tomorrow. However, this style can be a bit tricky, shopping-wise, given that there are so few stores in which you can find items of this variety. In cases like these, it is best to go hunting for vintage clothing online, as vintage stores are bound to carry items that reflect your brave style.
So Bohemian Like You
The bohemian look was custom-made for those free-spirited, rule-breaking, festival vibe-loving gals out there. Is this you? If the answer is yes, then make a move and stock up on off-the-shoulder dresses, kimonos, wedges and wrinkly suede boots, and of course, let us not forget hand-made custom jewelry. The bohemian style is so versatile and includes so many patterns and cuts, that sometimes you could get lost building your boho-wardrobe. Luckily, Pinterest is a source of endless inspiration, and you can turn to it for guidance at any moment.
Cool and Casual
For all the low-maintenance souls out there, who just want to go about their day and not stress about clothes – casual is the way to go. This is one of the easiest styles to put together. You need comfy t-shirts and blouses in solid colours, a few pairs of well-tailored jeans in the cut that will be flattering on your body type, a cool jacket or blazer and a nice pair of oxfords. A good fedora and a nice, casually thrown scarf can’t hurt either.
