1. Take Inventory
What do you really wear in your closet? Isn’t it time to toss the acid washed jeans from 1989 that are still hanging around? I think so! Don’t hang on to things “hoping” they’ll fit one day or praying they’ll come back in style. They just clutter your closet (and your mind) causing you to lose sight of your real options.
2. Try it On!
Gasp! You mean I have to find out if I still fit into that pencil skirt? Yes! Try your clothes on. See if they still fit and if you still love them. If they don’t, toss them. Make room for new items!
Now, this is what my closet dreams are made of!
3. Just Pin It!
Start an inspiration board of how you envision your style. Pinterest is a great resource. You can look for images online, pin them, and create as many boards as you like.
4. Know and Love Your Body!
Just because it fits does NOT mean it looks cute honey.
Example: Girl walks in to bank with Daisy Dukes on. Girl has extreme camel toe (eww) and the most cottage cheese I’ve ever seen in my life.
If she would’ve worn something that actually fit, she wouldn’t have looked like a cheap, fat, hooker. Embrace your shape, your flaws, and accentuate your curves. You have to learn what works and what doesn’t. I accepted year ago, that short shorts don’t belong in my closet.
5. Only Rock It If You Love It
Just because something is in style at the moment, doesn’t mean you have to love it. It might look completely horrible on you or you just think it’s hideous. That’s ok! Don’t rock it, unless you love it!
What helps you get out of a style rut?
