Each season I start by looking at street style blogs and key websites like vogue.com for insider catwalk information. From there I pin key images to new boards on my Pinterest page. Looking back at my favourite pins I can then make a decison on what I want to purchase this coming season. For an idea into how I work with regards to my blog check out my Inspiration pages for May & April.
I must stress as much as I do get inpsired by trends, I look for staple pieces to inject into my wardrobe.
So far this season I have injected lots of new pieces to my wardrobe. I am really enjoying trying new colours, trends and experimenting with my style a little more than normal. I'd like to think as I get older I make better decisons on what to buy and have better knowledge of what pieces are staples to my wardrobe. Bearing all this in mind I thought I would put together my tips on keeping on top of your wardrobe and style.
The Clear Out
From time to time my wardrobe gets to a point of being over filled. Living in London has it's pros and cons and one con is the lack of space to store all of my clothes! I hit breaking point a couple of weeks ago, my draws wouldn't shut and my boyfriend had had enough of having only 10 coat hangers in our shared wardrobe. A clear out was in order! So we made sure items either got donated to charity or sold on eBay.
Make a Wish List
After I have my favourite pins collected I take each image and start searching online across a variety of stores. What's great about shopping online you can use the wish list or shopping baskets to collect all the items together in one place. I like to review all the pieces I've picked out and got rid of pieces that I just don't love. Another plus point with wish lists is I can leave items in there giving me time to think about them and view again at a later date.
Purchase Key Items
Buying anything and everything just doesn't work for me. Before I've even got to the check out page I will have narrowed my purchases down to around 3 or 4 items. I am not a haul shopper, instead, I have to really think about pieces before I buy them. My trend pieces tend to be purchased from the cheaper high street and the staple items I see as investment pieces so I don't mind spending a little more.
