5 Ways to Build your Wardrobe

Before this year, I had spent 8 years of school wearing uniforms. Transitioning from not being able to pick out my outfits for the majority of the year to having to find clothes to wear every day was a huge task. I am going to share my tips on how to build a wardrobe

1. Don’t be afraid to spend time to find your own personal sense of style.

Inspiration to find your personal style can come from many different places. My inspiration came from much time spent on Pinterest, fashion magazines such as InStyle or Vogue, the people around me, and window shopping. I enjoy going shopping even if I know I am not going to buy anything. This gives me the opportunity to find new ideas of how to put together outfits without the stress of having to spend the money right away.

2. Find what colors look good on you.

Over time, I have changed what colors I like on me. One factor of this is the season. During the fall and winter, I tend to lean towards maroons and grays, and during the spring and summer, I lean towards choosing brighter colors. What colors look good on me also depend on how my hair is colored currently. Because my hair is blonder than usual, I try to find colors that will complement it. I have noticed that recently I have been buying clothes that are a navy blue, army green, and light pink. Finding colors look good on you also help to build a cohesive wardrobe that you can easily mix and match to create different outfits.

3. Be prepared to spend a lot of time in dressing rooms. Go out of your comfort zone.

It can be so difficult to find clothes that fit perfectly or that look good off of the hanger. Being willing to try on multiple sizes, styles, and colors will make it easier to find clothes that you will want to try. I have a bad habit of being afraid to try different styles of clothes. I have found it helpful to bring my friends or my mom with me shopping because I know they will suggest clothes to try on that I would not have even considered.

4. Figure out what staple pieces of clothing you are willing to invest in and what you can spend less on.

It is important to find key pieces of clothing that will be versatile. I know that I am willing to spend more money on clothes that I know can be staple items to create different outfits. For example, I have a couple of shirts from The Limited and jeans from American Eagle that will last and can be put in many different combinations. For many of my accessories and more seasonal pieces of clothing, I might not need for them to last because I do not wear them as regularly.

5. Know your climate.

This is probably the most important tip I have. When buying clothes, keep in mind what the weather is like where you live. As much as I love my flowy summer dresses, I know that because I live in Missoula, for a good portion of the year it will be chilly, and I will need warmer clothes. One way I built my wardrobe around my climate was to try to find clothes that could be easily layered.
