Because we all say the typical phrase “I have nothing to wear” almost every day, but deep down we know that it is not entirely true, right? Many times it is a matter of analyzing our wardrobe well to be able to give more use to our shirts, pants, dresses or shoes.
Tips to get the most out of your closet without spending a penny
Let’s see if this scene sounds familiar to you: you’re in a hurry to leave the house because you’re meeting, you open your closet, you can’t find anything to wear and that’s when panic begins to spread… Don’t worry, you have more things to show off than you think imagine, you just need a little organization and some imagination.
Start by organizing your closet
To get the most out of your closet without spending a penny, you must, first of all, have your closet tidy, an operation that you can perform every time we change seasons. View your clothes and accessories, classify them into groups: seasonal, accessories, basics and clothing, and get rid of the pieces that you haven’t worn for more than a year and a half. Of course, before doing this last step, make sure that they are not things that have become fashionable again, you know that the trends of the past come back again and again. Once this is done, we move on to the next step.
Make combinations with clothes and accessories
To combine your clothes and be fashionable, you just have to look at what is worn, what is not and how your favorite celebrities wear it. Establish a model that goes with you, for it copy something of the style of Sara Jessica Parker, from Elle Fanning or any other top or influencer that you like. With this we do not say that you imitate their looks from head to toe, but only that you let yourself be inspired by them. Another thing that always works is to define your style based on a fashion icon from yesterday or today. It is an ideal way to discover if you prefer the classic or the modern, the simple or the daring. Next point: play at making combinations and mixes with clothes and accessories, with colors and textures and even try combining trendy and quality pieces with more basic ones. You will see that the difference lies in the small details.
Take advantage of your closet and that of others
Have you noticed that you are missing some other garment? Wait, don’t go shopping yet, first take a look at your boy’s closet, your parents’ and even your grandparents’ closet. As you well know, men’s style fashion is popular, (combined with feminine pieces better than better), baggy clothes and vintage style. So don’t hesitate for a moment…
Transform and customize your clothes
Have you got bored of your usual jeans or jacket? Put some flower patches or whatever you want in the style of Selena Gomez. Don’t like that classic shirt? Cut off the sleeves and you have one for the summer. Don’t you like the color of your skirt? Dye it in a more colorful shade. Change the place of buttons, brooches, fringes… and whatever comes to mind. For a reason they say that there is nothing better than following fashion with your own style and if you also have fun and save money, even more so.
As you can see, there are several ways to take advantage of your closet without having to go to the stores every two by three, as much as we like to do it. In any case, there will come a time when you do have to go shopping, so plan an afternoon with your friends, think about what you will need, always including basics and trends, and set a budget so you won’t regret it later. Wait for the sales if possible and once you’re in the store, try on the complete look to see how that garment or accessory would really look on you, a little trick that never fails.
And after these tips, let’s get to work! Now you can get the most out of your closet without spending a penny.
