Have you recently walked into your closet and emerged bored to tears from your lack of exciting outfit options? It happens! Boredom causes daily wardrobe frustration for many women. However, you can banish your wardrobe blues with a few style tricks sure to put a smile back on your face.
Add a Bold Necklace
Your jewelry box is the key to quickly solving your wardrobe blues. Breathe life into an old standby just by adding a necklace. Do you have classic pearls? Pair them with a t-shirt and jeans for a modern twist. Are you bored with your cotton summer dress? Jazz it up by layering a short and a long necklace. Are you afraid costume jewelry looks cheap? Stop worrying and embrace it! There are many great costume pieces that look great and allow you to experiment with bold color or styling without making a large investment. Be bold and add a great necklace the next time you feel bored.
Change Up Your Shoes
A fun shoe can take an outfit from blah to hoorah! Instead of throwing on your tired flip flops that live right beside the door, head to your closet and change up your shoes. Are you saving your favorite silver shoes for a special occasion? Wear them to dinner with a dressy jean and fun top. Do you have sandals that you only wear with a matching summer dress? Wear them with a neutral skirt for a fun pop of color. Retire your flip flops and entertain yourself, and your feet, with a great shoe.
Branch Out Where You Shop
A simple change to your shopping routine can greatly benefit your wardrobe. Do you find yourself going to the same stores over and over again to buy the same old thing? Branch out! Try a new boutique. You never know what you will find. Ask a stylish friend where she shops and go there. If you’ve found a store that works well for you, be disciplined and buy only buying items that help you create new and exciting outfits. You will be surprised how branching out, even a little bit, can help you feel less bored with your style.
Schedule a Time to Play Dress Up in Your Own Closet
Most of us get dressed in a hurry leaving no time to find new and different ways to wear things. Do you feel like you always wear the same things the same way? It’s an easy trap to fall into, and plunges you deep into a boredom pit! Fix it by scheduling a time to play dress up in your closet. Make a goal of finding five new outfits—that you’ve never worn—from what you already own. With a little time and an optimistic eye, it can be done!
