Wardrobe Backup Plan
What would you throw on if you wake up late for work? Or what do you select if you have 15 minutes to get home and change for your date night? Some of you may know exactly what you would wear and others would be completely lost. That’s why (as simple or silly as it may sound) we need to design your wardrobe contingency plan.
Steps To Prepare For Style
One of the easiest ways to set your wardrobe contingency plan in place is to identify as many option sets as possible. For all of your major pieces (jackets, sweaters, shoes, etc.), try 2 to 3 separate pairings including shirts, ties, vests, pants, and socks.
It will amaze you how much time is saved when even the smallest details are taken care of – like your sock color. A good reference point would be to have one safe and one bold option for each of these pairings. That way you’ll be able to make the right statement at any event!
Personally, I like testing the waters and putting on new variations whenever I leave the house. It’s a great opportunity to put together different colors and textures. You can visit our Fabrics page for inspiration!
The benefit of being out in public is that people will readily give you compliments if your look is appealing. That’s certainly one way to know you’re on the right track. However, it’s less about the compliments and more about how you feel when wearing these pieces. Slight tweaks in your choices can breathe life into your wardrobe. More importantly, you will have back up options that are readily available.
Every decision takes time and you don’t want to arrive well beyond “fashionably late” because you just couldn’t decide what goes with what!
