With a new year comes new resolutions and goals. And maybe one of your new years resolutions has to do with your style. Are you sick of your wardrobe? Does your current style not fit your vibe? Are you looking to upgrade your fashion sense? Well the new year is a chance for a fresh start and new beginnings. This is the perfect time to take a hard look at your closet and make adjustments to help you feel confident in the new year! Here are some tips for going through your wardrobe and redefining your closet.
Follow Fashion Blogs and Instagram Accounts
One thing you can do to up your style game is to follow fashion blogs and fashion Instagram accounts. I highly recommend subscribing to my blog (wink wink!) This is a great way to get inspiration and learn some fashion tips. I myself share outfit inspiration and styling tips. Other bloggers share tips for petite girls, fashion on a budget, or how to thrift. Most of us publish a new blog post on a weekly basis to keep you up to date on our latest fashion tips. Lots of bloggers also have Instagram accounts to showcase their daily fashion inspiration or clothing hauls. I’ll add a few of my favorite Instagram accounts below.
- @zaatina_z is amazing for fashion inspo and she’s super sweet!
- @aagaaa is great for more dressy outfits
- @lindsayyrain has a beautiful layout and great outfits
Take a look at what’s in your closet
I think all of us have at least a few pieces in our closet that we never wear. Whether it was a gift or you just keep convincing yourself you’ll wear it. Those pieces are taking up space in your closet, and you need to get them out. Look at everything in your closet and ask yourself these questions:
When was the last time I wore this?
How many outfits can I wear this with?
Do I feel confident when I wear this?
These questions should help you eliminate the clothes you don’t wear or like. It’s important to free up space for clothes that make you feel great and that you’ll actually enjoy wearing. When you’ve collected all the clothes you no longer want, you can donate them or sell them so that someone else may find joy in them!
Find Shops that fit your aesthetic
Now I know going out an buying a whole new wardrobe can be intimidating, and I don’t recommend you do so, but at least find some possible clothing stores/sites. A lot of fashion stores tend to have a particular style or niche, even if that just means basic pieces or dressy outfits. If you know the style you want, you can find the places that carry that style. If not, you can find a variety of clothing stores. Maybe you are struggling to find your style, and that’s okay, I’ll have a post on that out soon, so keep a look out. Finding clothing stores you like will allow you time to research the pieces you want, and buy them when you’re ready.
Alright before you go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, let me give you some advice. Do not, I repeat, do not, go out and buy hundreds of dollars of new clothes to fill your wardrobe. It is never a good idea to impulse buy clothing; it will result in you buying more pieces you don’t want. My advice is to figure out a few pieces that are basics and can be used in several outfits, like maybe a pea coat. I have a post about why every girl needs a pea coat HERE. You could also get one or two statement pieces, just for fun! Now that you’ve got your list of stores, you can look at what they have and over time start buying up the pieces you want. Building your style doesn’t happen overnight, give yourself time and your wardrobe will be fabulous!
