Every day, thousands of women all over the world wake up, walk over to their wardrobe and desperately declare they “have nothing to wear!”. It’s a serious condition, with side effects including giving up and wearing yesterday’s outfit, clothes strewn all over the floor and arriving late to wherever you were going. The good news is that it is curable, and you will get through it. The solution, more painless than you might think, involves shopping. But this is not a spree or a splurge, rather a mission to purchase the 5 pieces that will step up your style and reinvigorate your wardrobe. Ready? Let’s go.
1. Statement Necklace
Accessories are a great and inexpensive way to inject something new into your wardrobe. A necklace that is an interesting shape, bold colour or intricate design can transform an LBD and instantly lifts a plain white t-shirt into something spectacular.
2. Printed Skirt
A versatile piece for both work and play, the printed skirt is definitely a piece that will make you feel excited to get dressed again. Opt for a knee or midi length and wear in place of your office pencil skirt for work, and glam up with a killer pair of heels and a silky top or crop for evening. As for the print, it’s entirely up to you how bold or bright you go!
3. Killer Pair of Shoes
Nothing makes you feel and look better than a killer pair of shoes. A pair of on-trend heels gives a sophisticated and stylish twist to even the most well-worn outfit, and choosing a pair carefully will ensure maximum wearability. There are two ways to go with this. The first is to select a totally unique and statement making pair – think Sophie Webster or Charlotte Olympia. The alternative is to go for a simpler, more classic pair that will go with everything – we can’t go past the chic two strap ‘90s style heels in black or nude.
4. New Bag
It can be as small as a clutch or as big as a handbag, but whatever the size, a gorgeous new bag is certainly something to get excited over! Following a similar rule to the necklace, accessories are an easy way to make an outfit look new and on trend. A jewel encrusted clutch or a bag in the season’s must have colour will instantly update your wardrobe into something special.
Whether you’re waking up to a a bad skin, hair or outfit day, lipstick is your saviour and new best friend. Perfectly applied lipstick instantly makes it look as if you’ve made an effort, making you look polished and together. You’ll be surprised what a difference a slick of bombshell red lipstick can make to an outfit for day or night! Treat yourself to finding the perfect red shade, or update seasonally with a colour that you wouldn’t normally try.
