Giving Your Style A Revamp This Fall
It’s not long now until fall is well and truly at our doors with its cooler winds, cozy evenings, and the beautiful warmth of the turning leaves. When the seasons change, especially as we head towards the end of the year, it’s surprisingly common for many people to feel the urge to change something about their lives and revamping their wardrobe and style is the perfect place to start. While summer fashions were fun, it’s time to get serious about comfort and style, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend lots on a whole new wardrobe. Here are some tips to help you revamp your style this fall. (Image Credit: Dana Tnetis/Pixabay)
Carry out a wardrobe inventory
Before you run off to the stores or start filling your online basket, you need to take a good look at what’s already in your closet. By taking the time to clear out the forgotten corners of the wardrobe, you can dig out some great items from last year which you can use in new combinations.
The fall is the perfect season for layering. Temperatures have dropped but are nowhere near the deep chill of winter. This means you can keep several of your spring and summer items in circulation by pairing them with extra layers such as t-shirts under strappy dresses or pairing it with a leather jacket or blazer.
Choose the trends which suit you
Every new season brings new trends, but you don’t need to jump on board with all of them. Most of what is fashionable now will be long gone by this time next year, so stick to buying items that you love and suit you regardless of the trend. By all means, choose those which you love and look good on you. Consider your body shape, your skin tone, and your lifestyle and – sticking to your budget – cherry-pick the best.
Repair old favorites
If you find old items that you love but which have tattered edges, a broken zip, the odd missing button or broken heel on a shoe, don’t give up on them just yet. Even if the piece doesn’t quite fit as well as it used to, a professional tailor may be able to bring them back to life for a lower cost than buying new items.
Invest in high quality & timeless pieces
While saving money is top of most people’s lists, some pieces are worth an investment. Your coat, for example, should be high quality and timeless so it will serve you well for many years to come. A peacoat or duffle coat is a classic, and there are plenty of great styles at Gloverall.com. The same can be said of a good pair of winter boots. Knee-high or ankle, whatever you prefer, comfortable black or brown boots should last you for years so are worth spending a little more on.
Embellish with on-trend accessories
You can revamp pretty much any staple garment and the simplest outfits by using accessories to make a statement. You can choose the patterns and styles which are on-trend to update your look from jewelry, scarves, hats, belts, and more. For example, animal print is on-trend at the moment and looks very classy when used in small doses with neutral shades.
