Once you have clearly defined your overall style direction for the season, it is time to go shopping!
Careful consideration of what you need beforehand will prevent impulse buys and overspending.
Whether it is a college graduation, a wedding, or a fancy date with your spouse, you will need these items.
February is the end of winter, and beginning of Spring/Summer lines, so you can shop for winter clearance in February.
For example, corporate wear and heels won’t be so appropriate if you work from home or spend your day on the go. Make sure you look through your social schedule for the coming season. For convenience and practicality, the majority of what you wear should be in a neutral colour palette of blacks, greys, whites and nudes, which allows for optimal mixing and matching which will keep your wardrobe feeling fresh.
Add excitement to neutrals this season with structure and texture.
Identify key investment pieces you need and budget for them, like shoes, knits, coats and bags or any basics that need replacing.
Think of special events you have coming up and if you need to buy anything specific for these.
You should love everything you buy and each piece should compliment your style and the rest of your wardrobe.
Winter clothes can be more expensive so you want them to be able to be carried through to next year.
Also, think back to what you wore in previous years and if these looks can be carried on to this season and still look chic.
