I've done it.
You've probably done it.
Stared at your closet one morning, flinging item after item on the bed, and telling yourself dramatically "I have nothing to wear."
Or, I have nothing to wear that looks good.
I was talking about this with a coworker the other day. There are moments where we just get sick of the items in our closet and we usually have no good reason. But how do you get out the closet rut, especially without buying new clothes?
>> find inspiration: While Pinterest has its faults, one thing it is great at is providing inspiration for outfits. Check out a few fashion boards (mine is here) and see, with a bit of creativity, you can recreate what you see on a pin with the items you already own.
>>reorganize: maybe you're like me, and your closet is slightly disorganized. Put away your winter clothes, dig out your summer clothes, check out the far reaches of your closet-- you may be missing out on something.
>> refresh: Figure out what you don't wear! Is it because it doesn't fit, doesn't look right or needs to be thrown away? If you don't wear something often, try to see if you can incorporate it better into your daily look. A denim shirt under a dress? Why not! A cardigan buttoned up and tucked in? Totally cute. Holey jeans rolled up and paired with heels? Of course.
Still stuck? Have a friend come over! Sometimes I "forget" about an item of clothing, and seeing a friend gush over it and remind me of why I bought it in the first place is helpful.
how do you fight the nothing-to-wear complex?
