When I'm in a client’s wardrobe, I often suggest they think about the Jil Sander quote ‘buy less, think more’. Needless to say, I get mixed reactions! I’m not suggesting they should have a minimalist wardrobe or to stop shopping, I’m asking them to put more thought into what they are purchasing to create a functioning wardrobe, one that is well curated to their suit lifestyle and individual personal style. It’s about having a wardrobe that exclusively holds clothes and accessories that add value to their wardrobe as a whole.
I understand it can sound a little overwhelming a first but it will ultimately save you time, money and it will be easier to create a variety of outfits! So before making that next purchase consider the following,
- Do I already have something similar?
- Will this work with other pieces in my wardrobe?
- Can I wear this in different seasons?
- Does this suit my personal style?
- Do I really love it?
