I love versatile pieces in my closet I can mix and match with any outfit. The perfect example of this would be the Chambray Shirt. This “go to” item can be worn with anything from jeans to dresses. It can be dressed up or dressed down.
Functional pieces, such as the Chambray shirt, are important to keep in your closet. I believe your wardrobe should always be 75% basic items that can be mixed and matched with other items. The other 25% trendier items that reflect what’s in for the season. The seasonal items are the pieces that freshen up your closet, but they can keep it dated as well.
The other thing to keep in mind when purchasing versatile pieces is quality. You want these pieces to last several seasons. You want to make sure you get more bang for your buck and which sometime means spending a little more. For my basics sweaters, blouses, and basic tops, I spend a little more and go shopping at places like Nordstrom’s or Gap. For pieces that will add color and pop to my wardrobe I tend to purchase at retailers like Target or Forever 21. When building a wardrobe it’s important to know what’s worth the extra bucks and what isn’t.
Take the time to spend in your closet. Figure out what your wardrobe is made of. I maybe into the latest fashions, but I also know when to purge. I go through my closet once a year cleaning out what I don’t need and taking note of any basics I need to add to my closet. If you need any tips or tricks to cleaning up your wardrobe message me and let’s get that wardrobe of yours to true fashionista status.
