4 Tips to Help you Fall back in Love with your Wardrobe

What to do when you are bored of your wardrobe

Have you ever stood staring blankly at your wardrobe and thought ‘I have nothing to wear’ or ‘ I’m bored of wearing the same old thing over and over again’? Yep, you are not alone. I think we have all been there at some point in our lives. What do we do then when we get bored of our wardrobe? (don’t worry I’m not about to send you shopping). The solution sure isn’t to hit the shops and max out your credit card on clothes but to find new reasons to fall back in love with the clothes you already own. Here are a few tip to help you do just that…

Get Inspired

I’m definitely guilty of getting in a clothes rut from time to time. I seem to wear the same outfits over and over again on rotation. To get myself out of the rut I love scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest. Sometimes all it takes is an image to inspire a new idea for an outfit using clothes i already own.

Get it Altered

I’m sure you have some great pieces that you don’t wear anymore because they are just not quite right or don’t fit very well anymore. Altering them (either yourself or sending it to a professional seamstress) is a much cheaper option than buying something new. Sometimes something as simple as altering a hemline can make all the difference.

Have fun with Accessories

The right accessories can totally transform an outfit. Mix up and be creative with the way you use a scarf, add a statement necklace to a plain outfit to instantly add interest and change the handbag you use frequently. You will be surprised with how much of a difference just charing a bag makes to the entire outfit. The same goes for shoes.

Wear your Favourite Pieces Differently

Don’t just rely on your usual outfit combinations, learn to experiment by trying on unlikely pairings and push yourself out of your fashion comfort zone. You might find a great look in the process. If you always wear your favourite top with a pair of jeans why not wear it with a nice skirt (I love midi pleated skirts) instead or culottes? Just have fun with it.

  1. Great tips. I have a ‘functional’ approach to clothes. I really don’t pay enough attention to them at all. #stayclassymama

  2. Great tips here, I’m really struggling at the moment as everything has to go through the “can I breastfeed in it?” test first and I also lost a lot of weight after being pregnant so everything is ill fitting – I’m trying to alter and find second hand alternatives to sort it out!

  3. Fab tips. I’ve felt like this recently and started to wear my dresses a bit more. I also have a few items that could do with being altered x

  5. I need a new wardrobe, I have nothing that goes anymore. Take me shopping! #stayclassymama

  6. Some great ideas I have started mixing my outfits up and buying some new belts have really changed a couple of dresses #stayclassymama

  7. Brilliant suggestions here! I love scarves, you can never have too many and they can make a boring outfit brighten up instantly. I also really like statement necklaces. I don’t wear them much at the moment because my baby would pull and chew them too much! X #stayclassymama

  8. I’d always thought that getting things altered would be really expensive but I recently had to get a bridesmaid dress altered and it really wasn’t much at all! Also, I think you’re right that just mixing up the combinations can breathe real life back into your stuff. #stayclassymama
