Taking stock: what is already there and what can go?
First of all, you need to turn your closet upside down. But please don't sort out the items that you don't think you have any use for but would like to wear. Maybe we'll find a solution for this later. But be ruthlessly honest and sort out everything that you don't like, doesn't fit or is made of material you don't like wearing. You have to feel comfortable in your clothes , your second skin, and they should make you happy. That's the be-all and end-all. If parts are broken, first consider whether a repair is an option. If not, get rid of it!
Creativity and courage are trump cards
Now comes the fashion show. Lock yourself in and try out every combination imaginable.
A sweater over your summer dress or would you prefer a blouse underneath? Combine the beautiful but unfortunately boring black color with a bright T-shirt ? A chic silk blouse with baggy pants or an oversized wool sweater with leather leggings ?
Play with shapes, colors, materials and lengths and misuse. The festive evening dress that you haven't found a suitable occasion for in recent years suddenly becomes suitable for everyday use when combined with a casual leather jacket . Or the summer dress that hasn't been used in the last few years suddenly becomes suitable for winter when you combine it with your favorite XXL sweater .
Be confident and don't care too much about what others think. Maybe you'll make a mistake, but in the end courage always pays off and you'll see how much fresh air you can bring to your existing wardrobe. You'll be surprised at how many completely new outfits you suddenly create.
Is something missing? Off to the wish list
If you realize at your fitting party that you are missing one or two basic or bright items, then create a wish list. Write down exactly which parts are missing. You will certainly notice that there aren't that many and you can then search for them specifically. This is much more efficient than just going shopping, which usually ends with you having a lot of new items, but they don't fill the gaps with your existing outfits .
Never underestimate the power of the basics
If you let others inspire you online, you will quickly notice: it's all about basics . When adding new clothing items, focus primarily on basics. You probably already have enough extravagant, eye-catching pieces in your wardrobe that are waiting for the right use. It is now important to combine these with the right, high-quality, classic basics such as our high-quality cashmere sweater .
Oversized clothing is perfect for refreshing boring outfits. A simple oversized sweater or shirt can become a fashion statement and, when combined correctly, can even be a slimming thing. Just always remember: It's best to be wide at the top and narrow at the bottom or wide at the bottom and narrow at the top.
Finishing touches: Don’t forget the accessories!
Even though less is more with most outfits, that doesn't mean you should avoid it completely. The right belt or handbag can instantly enhance an outfit. It doesn't matter at all whether you're casual or chic. A cap or hat also often makes THE difference and should not be underestimated.
