Create a Closet with a Color Scheme

Along with knowing what colors work well for you, it’s great to create a closet around a color scheme. If you have a closet with every color of the rainbow represented, then you’re going to have a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear! But when you put some strategy into what colors you invest in, then you’ll be able to mix and match to get so many different looks! 

This will cut back on your closet clutter. You’ll be able to have a smarter and simpler closet that isn’t overwhelming. And that’s the best kind of closet to have!

Steps to Simplify Your Style

Invest in Versatile Pieces

When you go shopping, try to envision how to style something in at least 3 different ways before you buy it. You don’t want a closet full of one-timers in your closet! If you buy random pieces that can only be worn in one way with one certain pair of pants or shoes, then you’re either going to have an overflowing closet or closet full of clothes with nothing to wear! Be smart! Stop and think before you buy. Take time to picture if you can wear that item in multiple ways. 

Invest in High Quality Pieces

If you want a simpler closet, then stop buying cheap clothes! Stop buying those pieces that are poorly made and that will fall apart after just a few wears or one wash. When you invest in high quality clothes, they’ll last longer! And that means less shopping and time wasted replacing pieces in your closet!

Stop buying those crappy pieces and start buying better pieces. Yes, you’ll have to spend more money, but in the long run you’ll save money because you’ll have those items for longer and be able to wear them more often! Start buying pieces that are timeless and basics so you can mix and match. It’s such a great way to simplify your style! You can read about how to invest in high quality pieces on a budget HERE.

You want a closet that will work hard for you. You want a closet that you can mix and match pieces. You want a closet that you feel confident and beautiful in! Follow these steps and you’ll be able to simplify your style and learn to love what you wear!
