It’s around this time of the year when those seriously hot days are well and truly behind us, and we can look forward to that beautiful change of season. It’s also around this time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe and how you want it look.
Getting your wardrobe ready to roll for the cooler months needn’t be a chore (it can actually be fun), which is why I’ve put together my top 3 tips to getting you (stylishly) winter wardrobe ready!
TIP.1. - GO THROUGH YOUR CURRENT WINTER PIECES
Be ruthless here – Try everything on! Does it still fit you? Do you still love it? Is it in good/wearable condition – does anything need a new button or mending – are the zips and hems all ok?
This is also a really good time to take inventory of you have, and what may be missing from your winter wardrobe....more on that soon!
TIP.2. GET CREATIVE
First thing to do is go through your summer wardrobe (this may seem counter intuitive to the first tip but stay with me!) and pull out some of your favourite pieces – with a few creative tweaks ask yourself “can these be winterfied”? (NOT a word but fun nonetheless!)
You’ve got a couple of floral dresses that fit you beautifully, why not add tights, boots, a soft knit jumper or denim jacket to it – smart, chic AND warm.
The same combo can be used for any summery skirts you may also have!
Your favourite t-shirt doesn’t need to be banished to the back of the wardrobe, why not layer it with a wool cardigan, jeans and a scarf. If it’s a little cooler where you are why not wear your favourite jacket and add a hat.
TIP.3. CHECK OUT THE ONLINE SALES
The beauty of having opposing seasons with the northern hemisphere is that as they are about to head into Spring and are also in the midst of having huge winter sales, so if you’ve done some inventory on what may have been missing in your winter wardrobe (Tip.1.) then this could be the perfect time for you to find something you love and need!.
NB:If you are going to dive into buying some new pieces for the season ahead and want to make sure that what you are investing in is truly what you want, then I’d recommend getting my (free) Purchase with Purpose Checklist – a simple (yet very honest) way to empower yourself to make the most conscious shopping decisions - you can get it here.
