5 Ways to Infuse Love Into Your Wardrobe

By Carol

Posted in , | Tags : , , , , , , ,

Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up every day and put on something you love? Wouldn’t it brighten your day and make you feel joyful and amazing?

That experience is absolutely possible.

It requires you to have things in your wardrobe you love, and if you don’t then we need to talk.  In the meantime, I’ve got a few ways you can infuse love into your wardrobe so your closet becomes your new happy place.

1.Shop for What You Love

In order to have a wardrobe that’s filled with what you love you may need to change up your shopping habits. If you’re shopping on the run, you may be grabbing “just any old thing” rather than allowing yourself the time to try things on, look in the mirror and ask yourself the question, “Do I love this?” Or if you are taking the time to try things on, are you settling for the same old thing instead of exploring new possibilities? The best thing to do is give yourself some time to explore and have fun with clothes. Don’t settle for “okay” when you could enjoy clothing pieces and accessories that put a smile on your face every time you wear it.

2. Display What You Love

People have collections of things they love. It could be figurines of specific animals. Maybe it’s a wall of framed horticultural prints. Some people fall in love with a city and want to be reminded of it all the time. You can take those subjects you love and look for them in prints. How about a blouse with your favorite flower or a knit sweater with the image of your favorite animal woven in? Or a scarf depicting your favorite city? Many people gain much pleasure when they adorn themselves in things they already love.

3. Satisfy Your Love of Details

Are there little details that you love? Maybe you love vintage details. You may fancy lace, ruffles, bows, tucks, appliqués. Maybe you love urban details like studs, fringe, or grommets. Indulge your love of details and look for new ways to have them in your wardrobe. If it’s studs you like, look for them in handbags, shoes or boots, or on the hemlines of skirts.

4. Insist on Wearing the Colors You Love Most*

Sometimes people will surround themselves in the colors they love when they’re decorating their home. While having wall paint or bed linens in your favorite colors is fabulous, how about having an ample amount of clothing pieces in your favorite colors? Or while you’re waiting to save up for the navy blue tufted velvet couch, find a top, pant or dress in navy blue and enjoy that color right now. Be up-to-date with your love of color. Maybe you used to be crazy about white but now you’re crazy about purple. You don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe in purple. You can buy a few pieces that will satisfy you. 

*There are two caveats here: (1) Black is not a color, so don’t go there; and (2) Know your color palette and particularly your power colors and shop in those in mind.

5. Highlight a Loved Feature of Yours

If you’re spending a lot of time focusing on figure challenges, take a break from that and focus on features you love about yourself. Maybe it’s your décolleté. Are you wearing pieces that flatter your chest? Wear flattering blouses or dresses with great necklines. A secret to one woman’s style is to focus on her long legs. She wears pants in all kinds of fabrics like lace, velvet, and jacquard. You have the power to direct attention wherever you want. Here’s a bonus: The more you focus on what you love, the less you’ll focus on those challenging areas you often try to hide.

Summary

On a scale of one to ten with ten being totally satisfied with your wardrobe and one being not at all satisfied, where does your wardrobe stand? Bringing some loving attention to it could be what’s needed to bring that number up to a resounding ten.

It’s possible! I’d love to help you get the most enjoyment out of your wardrobe.
