Take Inventory of Your Closet
Before you even step foot in a store, you must take inventory of your closet. Open up those closet doors and go through your clothes, one by one. Look at what you have. Look at the colors you like to wear. Look at what you need. If you really want to do it right, then you should completely clean out your closet. You can learn how HERE!
