Take note of what you have (and shed the junk)
Spend some time sorting through your wardrobe, taking note of what you already have. Anything that you haven’t worn in the past six months, you need to consider getting rid of. It might be beautiful, but if you never wear it, what’s the point of having it?
Any items that you don’t want/need be ruthless and chuck out. If you stockpile clothes that you’re never going to wear, you won’t be able to see what you need to invest in.
Know the trends
Go online and Google all the latest fashion trends. Visit your fave fashion sites and have a browse to see what’s in this season – you might have an idea already, but it’s best to double check. Once you know what’s in and what styles you like, you can then start thinking about your wardrobe.
