You might find this surprising but I don’t buy a lot of clothes. Hear me out: You might think that as a personal stylist who is always at the mall I do a lot of shopping for myself but you’d be wrong ; ). Over the years I have carefully and thoughtfully curated a closet for myself that includes classic, good quality basics that I can easily mix and match – otherwise known as a capsule wardrobe. Which means I don’t NEED more clothes. Sure I like to try out trends here and there but for the most part the majority of the pieces that are in my closet I have had for a long time because they work for me and my lifestyle.⠀
What I do like adding to the mix every once in a while are new accessories! Accessories can completely change the vibe of an outfit and are a cost effective way of updating your wardrobe. (And yes shoes count as accessories!) So the next time you want to update your look but you already have a ton of clothes, focus on changing up your earrings, or switching out a handbag, purchasing a necklace you’ve had your eye on or putting on those bright pink pumps you haven’t worn in awhile (because PANDEMIC) to give an all-black outfit a nice pop of colour. It’ll make a huge difference!
