As 2022 rolls by and we usher in 2023, it’s important to refresh your wardrobe and ensure that you stay on trend with the latest style.
Women’s fashion, as you probably know, is always dynamic. And it’s difficult to keep up with the latest trends and ever-changing styles. However, with the help of the tips below, you can refresh your wardrobe, stay on top of the latest fashion trends, and look your best.
1. Tidy your closet
The first step in updating your wardrobe is discarding old items, especially those that are mismatched or old.
You may have bought hikers’ boots for your hiking adventure. But, if you last wore them long ago and they still take up space in your closet, it’s probably time to discard them.
Once you get rid of the old and irrelevant items, you’ll have enough space to introduce the latest fashionable items to ensure that you stay in vogue in 2023.
That said, how do you get rid of old or irrelevant fashion items?
You can begin by sorting through clothes you haven’t worn in a long time. Inspect them individually and determine if they are still a match for you or your existing outfits. If they aren’t, they belong elsewhere and not in your closet.
2. Give away or sell old clothes.
Rather than dump old or irrelevant clothes in the dumpster or your backyard, and pollute the environment in the process, why not give them away or sell them online?
By selling them, you’ll get some extra cash. If you decide to give them away, you’d be helping someone in need and protecting Mother Nature.
3. Examine your style profile
Next, go through your wardrobe. Look for outfits that are out of date, considering the latest trends. Doing so helps you update your closet with the right items that match your personality and lifestyle.
If you lack inspiration, you can check out current fashion magazines or online blogs. Afterwards, go through your closet and select some items to determine if they complement the current trending styles. If not, identify what suits you and reserve the budget you’ll need to buy new pieces.
4. Buy accessories to add personality.
Your wardrobe update isn’t complete without adding some pieces of accessories.
Fashion accessories help add more flair and sophistication to your wardrobe. Plus, they provide interest in your outfit and ensure that you don’t get bored with your wardrobe.
Consider adding some pairs of classic loafers, white sneakers, slide sandals, and pointed-toe heels to your shoe collection. Plus, you should also consider some jewellery like diamond studs, bangle bracelets, pendant necklaces, big gemstone rings, pearls, classic watches, etc.
5. Include the basics
The next step is to ensure that you have all the basics lined up. We are referring to wardrobe staples like dark wash skinny jeans, coats, sweaters, wrap dresses, and t-shirts. T-shirts are common wardrobe basics thanks to their versatility, making them easy to pair with almost anything.
On the other hand, jeans are another wardrobe essential as they go perfectly with a variety of outfits. Plus, you can wear them as pants or tops, depending on what you wear. And, of course, sweaters are another wardrobe staple. They are essential as they keep you warm and comfortable during the chilly months.
6. Upgrade to timeless designs
Who said you need to spend heavily on designer brands to make a fashion statement? Rather than do that, we recommend investing in timeless pieces that can serve you for a long time. There are many timeless pieces in the market. Do your research.
Some common examples are white button-up shirts or little black dresses instead of styles that might appear outdated after a few months or years. As for shoes, you can consider chic, classic options like loafers, Chelsea boots, and block-heel pumps.
7. Adopt new shapes and silhouettes
The fashion world is dynamic. What was in vogue today may be outdated a few months or years from now. To keep up with the evolving fashion world, you’ll have to update your wardrobe from time to time. Add new shapes and silhouettes to your wardrobe to keep up with the fashion trend.
You can consider outfits like jumpsuits, high-waisted pants, and wide-leg trousers to highlight your figure. Plus, you can try out different lengths, like long dresses and skirts. You’ll get more options when styling them.
It’s the New Year—the perfect time to review and update your goals, resolutions, and of course, your wardrobe. While you make new additions to your cabinet, ensure you consider timeless fashion pieces. They are durable and are made of high-quality materials.
