Questions from Workshops
What is the difference between Shopping and Wardrobe Planning?
How many times have you gone to your closet and find its hard to put an outfit together? It happens a lot. Do you find lots of clothing hanging? Wasted? This is the aftermath of shopping without a plan. Wardrobe Planning is based on your needs.
It doesn’t take a huge closet filled with clothing to make it mix-n-match. First, your wardrobe needs to be based on your daily and weekly schedule. Your wardrobe should be flexible. Have a wardrobe that is year round, not based on spring/summer or fall/winter, but twelve month wear.
Fabrics selected should drape and hold their shape. Styles of garments should be classic, not the latest fashion trend. You want your wardrobe to be timeless, not dated. Planning a clothing purchase should be based on what you do, where you go and who you see. You need to ask yourself will the clothing you are considering work with what you have, mix-n-match and dress up or down? If not, don’t buy.
Wardrobe Planning should be viewed as strategic purchases. Does your wardrobe allow you to dress properly for day-to-day and is it ready for unexpected clients and meetings? This is how your wardrobe should be planned. You never want to get caught unprepared.
Unfortunately, many wardrobes are filled with clothing with tags still attached. These spontaneous purchases get shoved to the back of the closet. Much of the time this clothing is discarded to charity without ever getting worn. It is too expensive to go shopping without a plan.
Wardrobe Planning is a wardrobe that gets used, eliminates waste, mix-n-match and allows you to dress up, dress down, but dressed right. It is clothing that pays you dividends many times over. If you want a wardrobe that has ROI, return-on-investment, that is the power of Wardrobe Planning.
If you are interviewing this is a great way to plan your wardrobe to get you through the interview process and transition into your new career. If you going for a job promotion, this is how to leverage your wardrobe to the next level.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to assemble a good working wardrobe, it just takes good wardrobe planning. If you need help with this call Bel Air Fashions at 402-493-5160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
