Help!I have nothing to wear

Updated on April 10, 2013

The title of this article might seem a tad misleading, please hear me out before you hit the delete button. A few people have walked up to me and asked me the question, How do you maintain your dress lifestyle with all these? – ‘all these’ meaning head to toe in different attire daily, yet looking like I have just been shopping the current fashion trends.

The truth is, I have not done any major shopping since my time in the high end retail fashion, and I spent almost a decade in career progression hunting between LK Bennett, Hobbs, Polarn O Pyret and TFS Cambridge. During that period, I acquired major statement and timeless pieces from these companies yet they were stacked at the back of my wardrobe waiting for the appropriate time to be worn. The problem was, when the appropriate time came, I never seemed to have anything to wear and in frustration, I would end up buying again. This continued until I left the retail sector.

The truth is fashion never stays, only personal style does and I am at the stage of knowing my style and experimenting with key fashion pieces in my wardrobe. My answer to those questions is, No I have not been shopping but I have just simply been remixing my wardrobe.

Wardrobe remix is when you reach out to your creative inner self, go out of your normal dress style routine and try something different with the same closet. Trying something different could mean colour blocking, pattern mixing, adding key accessories or looking for ways to stand out from the crowd, the list really is endless. The key thing to remember is bring out the old, recycle and make a new statement, just the way fashion recycles every ten odd years.

Projecting the right image creates your world and opens up unexpected opportunities for you. Maya Angelou once said “I have lived in this body all my life and know it better than any fashion designer! I am only willing to purchase the item which becomes me and to wear that which enhances my image of myself to myself." Two key things to embrace when it comes to wardrobe remix or wardrobe detox is your body shape and your style personality.

Your current lifestyle and your future success projection will help you to decide the right kind of image to project to your world. If in any doubt on how to begin or where to start from, a critical option to consider is to hire a personal stylist who will take you through memory lane in your wardrobe and open your visual eyes to the most beautiful you.

To express inner beauty with smart clothing choices, without becoming slaves to trends that don't fit your body or personality, and for a Spring Clean of your wardrobe; Silhouette Trend Stylist is solving the age-old mystery of why women have wardrobes full of clothing but nothing to wear. We are offering 20% off Wardrobe detox and Wardrobe remix this spring.
