Transform Your Wardrobe

There are novelty pieces that we purchase during that awkward transitional season that usually get stuck in the same outfit season after season. Don’t you hate to waste those pieces on the same outfit? It makes me so angry when I get into a rut of the same five outfits, five days a week. Enter fall, the perfect season to transform your favorite pieces into something new again! Here are a few tricks for transforming your wardrobe this fall…

Go monochromatic. There is something so effortless and chic about a monochromatic ensemble. Think dark denim, a pretty navy blouse, and navy pumps or black leather skinnies, a leather cable knit, and pretty embellished flats. Add some shiny gold accessories and people will be blown away by how simple and lovely you look.

Tuck in your favorite tops. Fall is my favorite time of the year to embrace that classic, preppy look – so tuck those patterned peplum tops, silky button downs, stripe tees, and cable sweaters into your favorite tweed skirts, tailored trousers, and high waisted jeans. The easiest way to look a bit more polished!

Create a mix. I have recently become a huge fan of mixing my dressy, feminine pieces with more edgy items. Think the above blouse with distressed denim and fabulous heels. I have also had these Frye boots forever and am constantly pairing them with sweet little dresses, plaid skirts, silky tops, and tailored jackets.

Print on print. Tartan, polka dots, floral, lace, stripes, fair isle, leopard, and more. Sometimes the less you think about it, the more assembled it appears to be. I bought a pair of Tibi leopard trousers {I also love these jeans} and I have received more compliments when they are worn with stripe tees, my favorite tartan shirt, and polka dots. So just do it, ok?

I hope this helps to spark some creativity in your closet this fall! And, if you’re looking to fill some of the gaps, I pinned this “50 classics for your closet” from Matchbook Magazine and it is framed nice and pretty on my desk. It’s like a fun little game for creating the perfect closet.
