How to Update Your Closet

We all have been here at least once in our lives and it can be frustrating. Trying on outfit after outfit and hating them all is the worst way to start the morning.

In this blog, we wanted to give you some tips to update your wardrobe. As spring rapidly approaches, we wanted to help you create a closet that you’ll love to pull outfits from!
Go Through Your Current Wardrobe
Before you start adding new pieces to your closet, it is best to first clean out your closet and get rid of anything that you may not wear anymore. While it can be hard to get rid of clothing, it can really help you revamp your closet. A good rule to follow is to get rid of anything that you haven’t worn in the last year.
This way you don’t get rid of summer clothing in the winter or winter clothing in the summer that you still may like. Getting rid of items that you haven’t worn for a while will help clear out your closet and allow you to get rid of stuff that matched your old style. If you haven’t worn it in the last year, it is likely that you won’t wear it again.
There are some exceptions to this rule. There are some pieces of clothing that you only have to wear so often. These can include interview outfits, wedding outfits, formal wear, and other clothing that you may only wear on special occasions.
Determine Your Style
Not only do the current trend styles change on a regular basis, but your personal style can change quite a bit as you grow. It is very likely that you do not wear the same things you wore in high school and you will probably develop your style a few more times throughout your life.
Figure out who you are now and what style fits you the best. We all own pieces of clothing that don’t completely fit our styles, which leads us to rarely wear that item. Once you figure out your current style or what style you are starting to lean toward, you can start planning how to change your wardrobe.
Figuring out your style can help you determine which items in your current wardrobe can go and what pieces you should try to add. If something in your closet doesn’t fit your new style, get rid of it. You can donate any clothing you no longer want or sell it at a secondhand clothing store and use the cash you get to buy new stuff!
Reinvent What You Have
Sometimes, we buy items with a certain outfit in mind, but after we wear that outfit over and over, that item can get old and left in the closet. If you have items you still like but are not sure if you can keep wearing the same outfit, try to reinvent the outfits you can create with those items!
Spend some time trying on different stuff to create new looks that you love. Do you have an old t-shirt that you love but have only worn with leggings? Try wearing it tucked into jeans with a statement pair of heels. Layer a sweater over a dress for a unique and stylish outfit that you can wear year-round! There are so many fun outfits that you can create with simple items you already have in your closet, you just have to get creative and try new styles out!
If you try different styles and work on creating different outfits but still are not sure about an item of clothing, get rid of it. It is likely that if you aren’t sure about it, you won’t wear it again.
Shop Different Stores
After you get rid of the clothing, it is time to start shopping and adding new pieces to your closet! One rule to follow that can help you create unique looks, find pieces that match your style, and add statement pieces to your closet, is to shop at different stores. Don’t buy all your clothes in the same three stores. Shop through a new store you have never been to, you may find something you love and develop your style further!
Whether you find new stores in your town to try out or you shop Modern Vintage Boutique, we are sure you will be able to add some new pieces to your wardrobe that will truly give your style an upgrade.
Don’t Buy Too Many Items At Once
While it can be exciting buying new items to add to your wardrobe, try not to buy too much at once. Instead, buy a few new items every few weeks. This allows you to slowly incorporate your new clothing into your outfits and determine what you like and what other pieces you want to add.
Luckily, at MVB, we are always adding new items to our collections. This means that every time you come back to shop at our online boutique, you will find something new to add to your wardrobe.
Add Statement Pieces
Sometimes, you don’t need to buy a full new wardrobe, all you need is a statement piece or two that will help make your old outfits stand out. Whether this is a new, eye-catching top, shoes, or a cardigan, a statement piece can help you create new looks. Our online women’s boutique is full of statement pieces that you will love adding to your wardrobe.
One simple way to upgrade your wardrobe is to add more accessories! Accessories can completely transform the look of any outfit and add a bit of style to your closet. From hats to belts to shoes to jewelry, there are many different ways you can accessorize. Even if you wear simple outfits and want to take them to the next level, a statement necklace or a hat could really add the look you want!
Modern Vintage Boutique offers a ton of great accessories that can help you create the perfect look. These accessories are fun, stylish, and trendy. If you are looking for a simple way to upgrade your closet, try adding some more accessories that you can add to any outfit!
