How to create a wardrobe
(Carlsbad, CA, USA)
How can I create a year round wardrobe for So. Cal. living?
Hi Pat. You first need a good understanding of the colors
that suit you best.
Then think about the clothing styles that suit your personality. Do you like classical clothing, feminine clothing, dramatic clothing and so on. The Style Wise & Shop Smart ebook
can help you identify your style personality.
Next think about your lifestyle needs. Do you need smart casual wear, relaxed business wear, formal business wear and so on. Think about how you spend most of your time and how many outfits you need for each category.
Start with the clothing category you need most of and start by planning the number of pants, skirts, jackets and so on that you will need. See my wardrobe planning article
for more on this.
To make your wardrobe suitable for year round wear buy mainly trans-seasonal fabrics such as jersey, medium-light weight wools and wool blends. And think layering to add extra warmth during winter.
