Look at this as securing all of the ingredients you need to make your outfits. Wardrobe Essentials cover the base of your outfits, and make it easier to mix and match. Think of them as the kitchen essentials – salt, seasoning cube, pepper etc.
Organizing Your Wardrobe
Before you’ll be able to get something out of the outfit ideas – all pieces should first be visible and readily available to you.
Now imagine cooking a meal in the kitchen with your ingredients scattered all over the kitchen. You need pepper but aren’t exactly sure where you put it. You want your onions but there are in a far away cabinet where your hands can’t reach it. You could really use some palm oil but you’re not sure where it is.
Now the most common reaction to this is to go out and buy new ingredients even though you already have them somewhere in your kitchen!
My point is that having an organized wardrobe is very important when putting together an outfit. Everything should be organized so that you can easily take out clothes and accessories when you need them.
You’ll get easy access to your clothes, a clear picture of your options and the items you don’t have (and may need) in your wardrobe!
One of the best ways to organize your wardrobe is to keep all of your tops together – followed by pants, jeans, skirts and dresses.
Keep your shoes in one place. Tights and socks in a drawer. Jewelry on a stand or in a compartment drawer. Scarves and belts on racks. And then sort them by color.
