While we all certainly want the funds to be able to fully redo our wardrobe every single season, reality means we don’t get to. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t create a wardrobe that is as timeless as it is functional.
Focus Your Fashion
If you want a wardrobe that works at every time and every season, you need to rethink your fashion. Instead of buying kitschy catches that will be out of date by the end of the year, invest in looks that flatter your body and never go out of style. A nice pair of jeans, for instance, can last years and are useful in the fall, winter, and spring.
Load Up on Layers
The real secret to a wardrobe that doesn’t get stale is to invest in layers. The tank top you wear in summer can easily pair with a blazer in the chillier weather. Lay out all of your clothes and take in what can be layered together and how many different styles you can pull off. The more, the better.
Colors and Patterns
As you piece together your new one-wardrobe-fits-all-seasons looks, pay attention to your colors and patterns. Even though you’ll be going for a multipurpose closet, that doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain, boring colors. While you will still need base colors that can work with virtually everything, outer layers can embrace your stylish personality.
Finally, remember to hold on to those pieces that make you feel confident and comfortable. Just because you’re working on downsizing doesn’t mean you can’t hold on to a few things that can really only be worn in a few, select situations. After all, everyone has their guilty pleasure that brings a smile to their face each time they put it on.
