Having a Great Wardrobe – Step FiveBy Angela Marshall, 10th Oct 2013
A Great Wardrobe – Step Five
Over the last five weeks I have covered how to have a great wardrobe. When you have completed the stages you should find you have clothes to suit your lifestyle and budget. Most of you should also have less clothes. However, some of you who have been rather poor in the past at keeping a wardrobe of clothes, may well find you have some more clothes but newer and better. Remember! Having a great wardrobe is an ongoing project and it should always be looked at each season and very importantly whenever you change your lifestyle.
Here are some key reminders:
1. Sort your wardrobe at least twice a year and get rid of old and unworn items.
2. Check what you have in the wardrobe before you start shopping for the season.
3. Go shopping with a plan or at least an idea of what you have and need.
4. Love it madly, need it badly or don’t buy it.
5. Cost per wear – the more you wear it the cheaper it becomes. So an expensive item can turn out a lot cheaper than a cheap item worn once.
Finally ensure you understand your wardrobe personality so that you feel good in your clothes as well as look good. Often people have items in their wardrobe they don’t wear and wonder why. Most of the time it is due to the style and fabric not suiting their personality.
For example, a casual personality is happy in linen even though it creases, whilst a classic would feel uncomfortable and prefer jersey or cotton that does not crease.
Romantics love colour, fancy detail and accessories, whilst classics look for simple timeless styles that are of good quality.

I leave you with an added thought – “You are never fully dressed until your wear a smile”, so remember to smile. Why? It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, is the sign of friendship and sunshine to the sad.
Next week I will cover “When is the Best Time to Shop”.
