What's Your Fashion Uniform?

Want to get ready in the mornings quickly and stress free and look more amazing than ever? Read on...

Ever had one of those mornings when you literally cannot pull together a single outfit? Yet you know you have clothes, because it's not that you don't like shopping? For some reason they hang there, alone, with nothing to match with and worse, are a constant reminder of shopping fails.

Scary stats

You are not alone. Most women spend 20% of their income on clothes and the average woman has around 22 items in their wardrobe never worn, most NWT’s! I know this to be true as I see it when working with clients on their wardrobe edits.

So why is it? When in the shops they looked so appealing, so wearable. The truth is they are, but the bigger picture needs to be considered here - the full outfit and your current life stage. Before you buy anything new, you need to either; ensure it will go with at least 3 things in your wardrobe, or be prepared to invest the time and money in creating a complete look. If you are not able to do this, then do not buy it! It will only become item number 23!

Decisions decisions

New research in decision fatigue has shown that the more choices thrown at us, the more we look for short cuts, so it makes sense to scale down and focus on complete outfits. Even Obama only wears blue and grey suits, as he says "I don't want to make decisions about what I'm wearing, I have too many other decisions to make."
Most clients feel the same, they look for time-saving, fool proof strategies that will have them out the door in the mornings, looking effortlessly fabulous in the shortest possible time.

The formula

So developing your style uniform is the way to go. Get an edit together that will take you through the entire season. A loose template that matches your body shape and lifestyle. Keep colours to a minimum, around 3, until you get the hang of it and your edit successfully evolves. Think about your current outfits, which make you feel your absolute best? What do people compliment you on? Which pieces do you have crushes on? Base your uniform around these findings.

Take stock of what you already have first, consolidate and streamline before you buy anything new.
