My tips on how to make more outfits with less clothes

I think that we all have too much in our wardrobe and sometimes you just can’t see the wood from the trees. It is a known fact that most women wear 20% of their clothes 80% of the time. Here are my tips on how to make more outfits with less clothes.

I regularly cull my wardrobe as I like to see what I have, and an overstuffed wardrobe make that hard to do. If you work on the one in and one out policy, it makes the clearing out so much easier. If for arguments sake you buy a new pair of black trousers why not remove an old pair. Any clothes that no long fit you are only taking up space, so they can be removed. If you want to keep them try putting them in a suitcase and if in six month’s time you have not missed them, you may be in a better place to let them go.

So, let’s assume that you have done all the clearing and are now looking to replenish your wardrobe and want to put together a collection that will make several outfits without having to buy many new pieces. Firstly, you need to know which colours are best for you, if you need any help please do get in touch or visit my website

Now that you know your colour pallet you can use your colour swatch when choosing some new pieces. I would start by buying some key basic items in the neutrals of your season. These key pieces will be in your wardrobe for some time, so I would suggest these are the pieces you should invest in. By that I mean choose quality items that will stand the test of time. Then you can add the colour into your wardrobe with some blouses, t/shirts and jumpers. Separates are a good way to go because they are easier to mix and match.

For me personally, I like to follow fashion, but only if the fashion style suits my body shape. The basics the trousers, skirts, jeans etc are probably of a classic style and then I had my colour in my fashion pieces. If you are going to buy something high fashion, ideally you don’t want to spend too much on these items, as you can bet that they will be out of fashion next year. However, if you are a more classic dresser you might also like to invest in good quality knitwear in one of your colours as you know you will still be able to wear it again next year.

Ultimately, you are looking to build a wardrobe of clothes that you love and love wearing. This will give you the confidence you need knowing that you not only look good but feel good too.

If you are thinking about an outfit for Christmas Mark, on Lorraine this morning found this lovely top and skirt. Yes, it’s not a dress!! The top is £49.99, and the skirt is £59.99.  both from Mango. Now the beauty of these items is that they look good worn together but you could wear the top with jeans or trousers, and the skirt could be worn with another top. This picture does not do this outfit justice, but I couldn’t save the picture on the website and had to take a photo, but it is a beautiful purple. Follow the link to see what I mean.

Another option could perhaps be a trouser suit. These are very popular at the moment for evening wear and these also can be worn as separates making more outfit combinations.
