One of the services I get asked about most is making outfits — styling the clothes a client already has in her closet.
It’s a great thing, because it doesn’t involved shopping (which many women loathe, even when I am with them to make it less mysterious, confusing, and frustrating).
We simply take the pieces she already owns and find new ways to wear them. This can lead to a LOT of new outfits and to delighted surprise when a client finds she can get new life out of a piece she’d nearly gotten rid of because she had no way to wear it!
You can do this, too. You could find a little time on a weekend to plan what you’ll wear for the week (just make sure to keep notes, because you’ll forget, even though you think you won’t). You can try pairing new colors together or experiment with silhouettes. Just approach your closet as you would a rack of clothes in the store — that is, without preconception. What works together?
Caveat: You’ll need a mirror for trying the new combinations. And yes, you WILL want to try on the outfits!
Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
