When was the last time you really loved what you were wearing? How long has it been since someone has complimented you on your outfit? Do you approach your closet each morning with dread? It may be time for you to revamp your look for 2019. Grab your credit card and put on your favorite pair of slip-on shoes. It’s time to go shopping!

Visit local boutiques first.

Purchase a few fun items that push you a little bit outside of your comfort zone. There’s probably hundreds near you if you live in a big city like Nashville. Buying at a new store could help you get out of your clothing rut. Instead of dodging the employees, ask for their opinions on what trends would be appropriate for your body type and age.

Try it on and take a pic.

Our mothers always told us how important it was to try on an article of clothing before bringing it home, but while you are in the dressing room, take it one step farther by taking a photo of yourself in the outfit. Mirrors in dressing rooms lie, but pictures do not. Take pictures of yourself in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. Flip through the images before making your decision on which articles to purchase. Delete the photos of the outfits you left at the store, and keep the others as a reminder of what items go together.

Don’t overlook practicality in the name of fashion.

Your outfit will only receive compliments if you can wear it. Our jobs and lifestyles dictate what we are able to wear. If you work with small children, purchasing short skirts is an impossible choice since your day can include moments where you are sitting on the floor or chasing kids on a playground. If you work in an office that is freezing cold all the time, purchasing a sleeveless dress with a light-weight sweater doesn’t make sense, even if you do love the outfit. If you are on your feet all day, purchasing shoes that cause blisters and pinched toes don’t make sense.

Buy classic pieces and trendy accessories.

If you are on a clothing budget, as most of us are, you can’t purchase a new wardrobe each season. To stay current, make sure your closet is full of essential pieces that have a long shelf life, and then stay current by adding trendy accessories.

Learn what looks good on you.

Some people seem to be born with a strong sense of fashion, while others obviously struggle. Take an honest look at yourself. Which category are you?

  • Seek help with your wardrobe from a trusted, well-dressed friend or a professional.
  • Talk with the employees in clothing stores.
  • Hire a professional shopper.
  • Sign up for Stitch Fix or another shopping service.

Even if your clothing is not on the cutting edge of fashion, your wardrobe should accentuate the best features of your body.

Don’t fret too much about what you are wearing. As author Roald Dahl said, “if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams, and you will always look lovely.”
