How to Hit Refresh on Your Wardrobe

Refreshing Your Fashion

One of the perks of living in Indianapolis apartments near Keystone is the proximity to shopping options. There are so many places to go! For bigger brands, you can go to Keystone at the Crossing, Castleton, or Glendale Town Center. You can also check out Broad Ripple to shop small and local. The problem is, what are you going to buy when you get there? What will help you up your fashion game and stand out? Here are some tips to keep things fresh and fun! 

If It Isn’t Broke…

If you’re refreshing something, you’re not replacing every part of it. The same goes for your wardrobe. You don’t have to suddenly throw out the majority of your closet and go on an insane spending spree. One of the easiest ways to figure out where you want to go with your style is to start with pieces you already love. Grab that favorite sweater or pair of pants and lay them out. After that, think about why you like each of them. If it’s the color, then you should be looking for items to bring out that color or complement that color. If it’s the pattern, then you need items that won’t clash or compete with it. Starting with a staple you know and love makes it easy to build out your wardrobe.

Your Best Foot Forward

Shoes are a major temptation when you go shopping. There are countless colors and styles, and they are seasonal. It can become easy to go into a shoe-buying frenzy. To avoid this (and protect your funds), pick only a few, essential pairs for each season. Go for colors that will work with multiple outfits before you grab a pair with an intense pattern or shape. That’s not to say you can’t splurge once in a while, but master the basics before you get creative. There’s nothing wrong with a classic pair of black or brown shoes that can be dressed up or dressed down. 

And the Category Is…

Shopping can be overwhelming sometimes. If that describes you, then it may be wise to pick a fashion focus before you ever step foot in a store. This will also keep you from impulse buying as often. For example, if you’re missing layer pieces in your wardrobe, you should only have eyes for jackets, sweaters, and vests. That’s it. You can conquer that goal first, and maybe next month you move on to casual slacks or work shirts. Keep it specific and focused to ensure you’re not just buying whatever catches your eye. 

When In Doubt, Lay It Out

If you can’t seem to decide what sort of items to hunt for, then start by laying out some potential outfits you want to build. Look at each one and try to see what’s missing. Do you need a pop of color? Grab an accessory. Do you need a smart shoe? Find that ideal pair. It becomes simpler when you can see it come to life. It will also help you see gaps quickly, like if you have five outfits laid out but only one pair of pants to go with all of them.
