LADIES, SPRUCE UP YOUR WARDROBE FOR SPRING

with 3 comments

OK ladies, it’s your turn.  Let’s see what’s in that closet of yours for spring!  After all, it’s just a few weeks away, and I’m sure you have nothing to wear!

Of course, you need to start just like I told the guys last week…clean out your closet.

First, pull out all of your spring/summer clothes from the closet.  If they are old, worn out, or out of date, throw them in a pile for donations immediately!  Just do it!

Next, make stacks according to the garments, i.e., jeans, shorts, tops, dresses, etc.

Now, try everything on.  Does it have all the buttons, does the zipper work, does it still fit?  If it’s worth altering, such as a suit or jacket, or if it needs repairs, make a stack for alterations.

Does it need cleaning?  If so, make a stack for “dry cleaning” and one for “laundry”.

Instead of buying a whole new wardrobe, spruce up what you have with a few new pieces.

Crisp, white clothing is in for the spring and summer.  Keep your white tank tops and T’s, and pair them with a new pair of Capri pants or a floral skirt (floral prints are big this season).

Another great fashion find would be a military type, khaki colored jacket/vest.  Pair with your white tank or T, even a white button down you already have, a pair of jeans, and you’ve got a whole new look!

Nautical stripes are in, so grab a nautical themed top to pair with navy or white shorts you’ve already got.

Tanks are lacy and layered right now.  How about a bright colored lacy tank that can either be worn for a casual look with jeans, or paired with a long, flowing skirt for a more dressed up approach.

I know, no matter what, you ladies have got to get some new jewelry.  This season calls for chunky styled jewelry.  You can get a lot of mileage from a great piece of jewelry, even if the outfit isn’t new…the jewelry is, and that’s what everyone will be looking at!

Remember, if you’re trying to stay on a budget, buy pieces that can be mixed and matched and worn as several different looks….casual and dressy!  By doing this you’ll get more out of your wardrobe!
