While this isn’t really a fashion blog, every now and again I like to share something fashion related. If you are interested in fashion, then this is the post for you.
Since fall began, I started examining my wardrobe and discovered I may be missing some key pieces. For example, I have plenty of tops but am lacking in the bottoms department. I would like for my wardrobe to be both functional and stylish with a couple of wardrobe capsules. That’s why I decided to join Imogen Lamport’s Evolve Your Style Challenge.
While the challenge is typically 30 days, you can participate for as long as possible. I noticed that I really enjoyed certain parts of the challenge while other parts, I had a bit of trouble with (like wearing florals…umm yeah never gonna happen unless it’s just a scarf)
During the challenge, we were given a “theme” (for lack of a more appropriate word) to wear for the day. Some of these included:
* Wear a Statement Necklace
* Wear Contrasting Colors
* Wear Something Floral
Here are some of the other outfits I came up with during the challenge:
While there are still some days of the challenge that I have yet to complete, I feel comfortable narrowing down the key items I need to purchase to begin revamping my wardrobe. They include:
* Black pencil skirt
* Little black dress
* Bootleg jeans
* Black dress pants
* White tailored shirt
* Cashmere sweater
* 2 Sweat Suits
There are so many places to buy clothing but when it comes to your key pieces, since they will be worn most often they need to be higher quality than trendy items. On the flip side, you don’t want to break the bank purchasing clothing so it’s a good idea to shop clearance and sale items off season. Well, that’s what I plan to do and have been doing
Discovering the pieces I need to fill my wardrobe with is only the first step. Now, to focus on coloring.
I tend to gravitate toward neutrals (beige, black, forest green) but would love to infuse more color into my wardrobe. Red and purple are colors I’d like to see more of in my closet.
Is your closet all together or do you need to revamp your wardrobe to get out of a style rut?
