How to build your wardrobe part 4: Put it all together!

Now that you’ve filled your closet with pieces that fit great, look great, and are pieces that you love, it’s time to put it all together!

Is there a better feeling than looking in your closet and seeing a bunch of pretty new things you can’t wait to wear? It is amazing!There’s a few things you can do to help take full advantage of your new, fabulous wardrobe.

Step 1: Would You Still Buy It?
Now that you have your new purchases at home and are done shopping, try everything on again. Sometimes a dressing room is not the best place to determine how a piece really looks on you. The lighting may have been bad, you maybe didn’t havethe right underwear on, etc. Are you still excited to wear the piece? Maybe it is not as cute as you thought.This is the time to go through your purchases and make sure you really love them!

 Step 2: Start Styling!

Plan at least one outfit for each new piece. Put together a whole look, from the shoes to the accessories! Make sure to incorporate pieces that you already had into the looks also.

 Step 3: Create a Lookbook

Once you have an outfit all worked out, take a picture of it or write it down. When it’s time to get dressed later on, you won’t struggle to remember what pants, or shirt, or scarf looked best. It’s also a great way to help you get dressed when you’re in a hurry!
