Seeking Style 5 – Outfit Planning

This instalment of the Seeking Style Series will be on how to streamline your outfit choices and make sure you’re using all of the clothes you own.

Get everything out and ready

The first thing I do is take all of the clothes out where I can see them so I know what I’m working with. It’s pretty messy and could probably be done in a neater way, but this is what I do. I find that I often forget things that I have or there’ll be a shirt that I don’t enjoy wearing, but once it’s put together with something else I might like it a lot more and start wearing it often. The main point is to get the most out of what you own.

 

Putting things together

Once everything is out, it’s time to start putting outfits together and taking pictures. I start with outfits I usually wear and from there switch a piece out and see how it looks, sometimes trying on the new combos to see how it feels and if I like it. This way you can get more outfit options out of what you have. I will also look up things like “how to style utility jacket” to get more inspiration and ideas for things to go together that I would have never thought of.

Using Pinterest

Once there are some outfit combinations, I lay everything out and take pictures of them. Then I create a secret Pinterest board where I pin all of the photos I’ve taken of my outfits. The board can be sorted by season or weather to make finding outfits even easier. With a bit of initial time commitment, you can have quick and easy outfits and not have to think about them!

    Ohhh this is a great idea!! I think it can also be helpful to keep those pics on the phone for when you go shopping, you can see what accessories could fit your collection or what color combinations would work. Great idea 😀
