I Have Nothing to Wear! ( Part 1)

Every woman and some men, even though they won’t admit it, have said these 5 simple words. These 5 simple words can deflate your energy and make your day pointless or cause your bank card to rack up charges. “I have nothing to wear!” I use to suffer from screaming this multiple times a season, even after shopping like a mad woman until…I got proactive. Now I start each season with a wardrobe to prevent future frustrations, also known as closet meltdowns.

 

My 49 piece plan ensures you will always have something to wear. Trust because I'm always fly. Starting out the season with these pieces doesn’t mean you can’t shop for fun new pieces, however those pieces are additions and not necessities.

 

So what’s included?

 

Bottoms

Starting from the bottom you want to do a 4x4, 4 pants and 4 skirts. They don’t have to be expensive but it’s worth it to get them tailored to fit your body. So instead of purchasing tight fitted, buy comfortable and have it taken in if needed.

 

4 Pants and 4 Skirts = 8 Pieces

 

2 that can be worn to work or an evening out. Stick to colors that can go with tons of items like black, brown, grey or blue. Belt hoops are great because by switching up a belt you can have a lot more options to change the look.

 These pants are going to get a lot of wear and don't forget to factor in alteration cost when planning your budget.

2 that are casual and fun. Now is when you can play with colors or patterns, materials, lengths and cuts. Try a cool pair of leather red pants, green army pants or a patterned maxi skirt.

Hopefully you read my post about the perfect jeans already (if not please go read, I'll wait) and know that I am a big fan of denim. I wear denim with everything and tons of different ways. I need my jeans to speak. Hopefully you do not have to purchase a basic pair of jeans every year and can rotate these items over seasons and years. Note: All jeans do not have to be blue denim jeans. Feel free to mix in a black, grey, or white pair.

 

4 Jeans = 4 pieces

 

1 clean-cut pair that’s not super tight to wear for casual Friday (please don’t wear distressed jeans and kill casual Friday for all of us!) Try to make them non-descript so you can wear them repeatedly. Your goal is to wear the one cut without looking like the girl who always wears the same pair jeans (even though that’s the case.)

1 casual cut pair. Try a boyfriend jean in a nice distressed pattern.

1 ankle/cigarette pair. A cool look to wear with flats or espadrilles.

1 long pair for heels, date night or girl’s night. Let's get sexy. These jeans need to curve to your body like it was made for you. These jeans need to make people want a Coca-Cola bottle. This is when you splurge and to have a pair made for your body only may require alterations.

 

So far, so good. Our count is at 12, there are 37 more items to go! Check back soon for Part 2.
