I should probably preface this post with the fact that I’m not a fashion expert, but definitely a lover of it.
I want to talk about layers, because I have learned over the past year or so how quickly it can enlarge your wardrobe without buying a whole lot of extra clothing.
With each new layer, a new outfit is birthed (if you will), and the rule of multiplication is in play as you add a new layer. Even though one outfit might look similar, or hardly different than another, I still count an outfit with a different accessory, or different item as a new outfit.
A case in point (my very unedited process of getting dressed in the morning):
Each picture in my eyes is a different outfit, but with a small change. Obviously I wouldn’t wear those items 6 days in a row, or even a day after, but the point is the possibility is there for all the pieces in my wardrobe.
You see what I mean?
I think with a little creativity, you can find many more outfits in your wardrobe than you might have thought possible. At least that’s been my experience.
I can stretch my wardrobe and each item much more than I used to since venturing out and layering in a creative way. It saves money and makes you look stylish. Layers add depth and warmth…I just can’t say enough about my love for layers.
I think it helps to start off with a rock solid wardrobe stocked with pieces you love and feel great in, and somewhat coordinate together. It also helps if they fit your needs. Fall/spring cleaning and organizing your wardrobe is a good place to start if you haven’t already. Less is more.
Case in point, I always like to have a few go-to shoes that I can comfortably wear as a SAHM, and they go with almost any outfit.
The only pair that’s missing from this picture are my riding boots, but I think you get the idea. Wedges, sneakers, flats, and boots are all fairly stylish, and comfy.
