One of my New Year’s Resolutions was – If I’m going to buy something, make it totally different than anything I have in my closet. It’s so easy to know you look good in something and continually buy similar styles. Then, you become bored with wearing the same thing everyday and although your bank statement proves otherwise, you feel like you have nothing to wear.
I’ve been watching a lot of VH1’s House of Consignment. Corri McFadden, the owner and founder of eDrop-Off (luxury consignment business) makes a really good point when she tells her clients to never buy something in two or more colors. Although I have certainly broken this rule and still think for layering basics like T’s and tanks it’s ok, she makes a good point. You want to create versatility in your wardrobe and bring in things that will completely shake up your outfits.
Next time you try something on or are ready to go to the register, think about whether you have a similar style in shape or color before you buy. Instead, bring in something new that will allow you to accomplish more looks. Maximize what you have! People will notice.
Because I have so many jeans and wear them all the time, I like to buy tops as an easy way to get different looks.
Here are tops in colors and prints that would really shake up what I already own…
