Be Selective

Be Selective

Try to keep in your closet only pieces that you love and are truly excited to wear. Anything ill-fitting, scratchy, worn-out, barely "good enough, " or that simply doesn't suit your personal style can be discarded.

Create Your Own Unique Look

Following rules and blueprints won’t help you cultivate a strong sense of style, because that’s deeply personal. Even if you like many of the same colors, materials, or cuts as someone else, how you combine, choose and style your looks is a reflection of your unique taste and the influences that you have picked up. 

High-Quality, Long-Lasting Pieces

Once you become more selective about what you keep in your closet, you'll attach a bigger value to each individual piece and will probably no longer be satisfied with cheap, badly manufactured stuff.

You'll want clothes that feel good on your skin, and comfortable, sturdy and durable.

Follow Trends That Suit Your Style

Fashion should be about celebrating creativity and having fun. You should not feel bad about wearing something if you love it, but you also shouldn't feel bad about wearing what's not in line with what's currently considered to be the look.

Developing Your Style

It takes time to train your eye, experiment with different aesthetics, and develop a sense of style that feels natural and effortless to you. And it takes time to then learn how to best utilize those pieces to create outfits that you love.

The good news is that, no matter what your wardrobe looks like right now, you can get it back in shape and even have fun doing so. 

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

IDEAS

Rely On Your Community

Sometimes we need an outfit that is not part of our everyday wardrobe - clothing swaps can help there. Not only it saves money, but it cultivates community and encourages sustainable living.

Alternatively, rental stores and sites offer an affordable and sustainable option by allowing you to rent clothes. 

Ask Yourself If It Fits

Simply asking yourself if the item in question fits right now will help you find out what to get. If the answer is no, toss it.
