Booking a style session with one of our style experts will do wonders for your style confidence and time management. Until your next style session, here are a few small actions you can take now to help you streamline your day.
1 Clothing care: For clothes that can’t be put in the dryer, hang them on hangers to dry instead of laying them on a drying rack. It will leave fewer creases and you can skip ironing.
2 Clothing care: Put delicate garments into mesh bags to add an extra layer of protection. It also avoids the need to do multiple laundry loads, saving water and time.
3 Wardrobe Tip: Take selfies of your fav outfits and save them to a folder on your phone/computer. Anytime you’re feeling stumped, you can quickly refer to your photos to see what outfits you’ve already created.
4 Online shopping: Have your body measurements ready in both inches and centimeters. And keep a tape measure handy to gauge skirt or pants lengths easier.
5 Organizing tip: Sort your clothes by color so you can quickly visualize what items would look good together and easily plan outfits. A styling tip, when planning an outfit with a colorful print, try picking the first or second dominant color from the print to match with another item of clothing/accessory for an outfit that pairs well together.
6 Organizing tip: You can also sort your clothes by purpose. This makes finding outfits for what you have planned for your day easier. But also keep in mind that some items can serve multiple purposes. For instance, a lightweight tunic you like to wear to the beach could also be tucked in a skirt and worn as a blouse for a business casual outfit. So don’t let your creativity stop here!
7 Wardrobe Edit: Experts say that the avg person wears 20% of their clothes, 80% of the time. So taking time to edit our wardrobes makes it easier for us to take out clothes that distract and keep us from getting ready quickly in the morning.
