5 Tips to Get Dressed Every Morning in 5 mn!


The facts: time flies, you’re late and here again, you don’t know what to wear…

It has nothing to do with your wardrobe (full of clothes): you just have no inspiration, no ideas, no desire of wearing anything you have…

I think we’ve all been through this… Sometimes we’re just not in a good mood and or we feel like we would go for something different (or new?). However, when it happens, before falling for a new dress, I have a few tips to move on.

1/ Start with neutral pieces of clothing

 

idk what to wearA nice wool navy coat and a soft brown sweater, a good fitted jeans and a pair of beautiful booties: what else do you need?

A neutral piece of clothing is a really good staple that you can start with when you’re lacking inspiration. It’s quite like cooking: imagine that not knowing what to eat, you’re opening a closet looking for inspiration and here they are: pasta! A perfect foundation for your next dinner. Yet you just need to decide what sauce you’re going to add! (in our clothing case, the sauce will be the accessories ;)

This is why it is so important to have good basics in your wardrobe.

And what a neutral piece of clothing shall have?

  • an easy to wear well-fitting shape

4/ A different strategy will be to start with a statement piece

Even if you’re not attending a fancy vernissage or a fashionable evening, knowing this little tip, you can wear cutting-edge pieces on a daily basis…

First, you have to identify the characteristics of the piece: what makes it unique and exciting?

How to dress stylish

Is it the shape? super skinny, super short, super baggy, super voluminous?

Is it the style: baroque, retro, futurist, arty, extra dressy?

Is it the color?

Of course, a single piece can gather several eccentric features…

5/Then, balance in the opposite direction of the statement piece

Sometimes, it can be a piece of clothing that has been sleeping in your closet for years because it is too extreme. Find in what way it’s extreme and match with the opposite.
