White looks as lovely in the fall as it does at any other time of year.
A style rebel is someone who forgoes the rules and wears what they want to wear, when they want to wear it. To the style rebel, rules were meant to be broken. Here are a few ways to freshen up your fall style, while also being a fashion rebel.
Wear White After Labor Day
Packing your white clothes after Labor Day was society’s way of enforcing an invisible battle between rich and poor. Wealthy women from days long past put their white clothes away to signify status over others. A wealthy woman had no need to wear her white’s after Labor Day, she has more than enough other clothes to wear instead.
Some days you have to get out the door in a hurry. Those are the mornings when I reach for one of my grab and go outfits. Grab and go (also called fast fall back) outfits are those outfits that I’ve put together in advance. I typically plan at least a few outfits when I set up my capsule wardrobe at the start of each season. But what if I don’t want to wear any of my re-planned outfits and I’m getting dressed in a hurry?
Here are 3 ways I get ready fast, without reaching for one of my grab and go looks.
Transitioning from college to an office job. Dressing after having a baby. Entering retirement. These are a few example of the many challenges that life throws at us. And along the way your wardrobe has to adapt, while also maintaining your personal style.
When your closet contains the clothes that are in line with your personal style, you face the day with confidence. And when you walk out the door wearing things that you don’t love and are not in line with your personal style, your outfit feels “off” for the day. You don’t feel like “me.”
Developing a personal style can be a lot of work. It takes trial and error, intimate knowledge of how to dress for one’s body type, understanding which colors are most flattering on yourself, and the clothes must fit into one’s daily lifestyle. Which brings up an interesting question.
How do you keep personal style consistent in light of lifestyle changes?
Own too many clothes, yet never have anything to wear?
Unable to walk out of a store without buying something?
Struggle every day getting dressed?
With shopping tips, closet organization advice, and insights into the mindset of a shopaholic, Shopping Brake: Proven tips to stop shopping wrong, and start shopping right for a wardrobe you love, will provide you with the tools that you need to own a wardrobe that is the right choice for you.
It’s been 1 month since I started wearing my Fall Capsule Wardrobe. Since fall is my favorite season to dress for (the colors, the layers, the boots, and let’s not forget the pumpkin well everything, yum), my fall capsule is also my favorite wardrobe capsule to work with.
However, my fall capsule wardrobe was prepped back in July and early August, and then sat unworn until now. The long delay gave me a chance to review my fall capsule wardrobe with a fresh set of eyes, and I noticed something disturbing about this capsule wardrobe.
My fall capsule wardrobe began with a staggering 58 items, yowza! That’s a lot of clothes.
Or is it, really?
The answer depends on how often I want to wear everything in this capsule wardrobe.
How did my closet get so messy (top) when it used to be so neat (bottom)?
Have you ever cleaned out your closet, only to find it looking like a mess again a week or two later? Me too! A few weeks ago I had prepped my fall capsule wardrobe and my closet looked like the closet on the bottom. The shelves had lots of space, there was room in between each hanger, and most important of all, I could see and access everything I had inside my closet.
Yet the other day I looked inside my closet and discovered that it had turned into the mess at the top. The shelves were overflowing, there wasn’t much space in between each hanger, and overall I couldn’t see or reach for at least half or more of the things in my closet.
