Fashion Tips On How To Dress

When the seasons change from warm to cold or vice versa, you can begin to feel as though you have nothing to wear. But before you run off to completely rebuild your wardrobe, stop. There are things you can use from season to season. Save yourself cash.

You can build a wardrobe that will transition from warm weather to cold weather and back again. All you will need is a bit of new pieces to make the transition smooth.

Don't underestimate the power of the Basics.
When your closet is missing the basics, it's like an actress on the red carpet without a designer gown. You cannot do without them.

There are things you have to keep in mind about the basics:

Basics need to be not only without season, but without trend.
You want things that are flattering. Nothing too tight, but close to the body. Tight fitting clothing is considered tacky, and thus cannot be a basic. Basics are classic. Basic pieces are not boring pieces. You are going for classic, enduring, and graceful. You may occasionally update the colors and cut of these pieces, but otherwise they are timeless.

Re-organize your closet.
You need to go through your closet to find the pieces that are without season and separate them from the pieces that are quite specific to a season.

Group the items together. Now focus on your transition pieces. You might designate these by the color of hanger you use to store them. You want things to be easy to find.

Here a checklist of the items you cannot be without:

-White oxford shirt (opt for long sleeves, rolled up the shirt is now a summer piece)
-Black shirt
-Denim jacket
-perfect jeans
-khaki twill pants
-solid short sleeve T-shirts
-solid short sleeve tank tops

Revamp favorite pieces

Winter may be over, but don't make the mistake of storing all of your cold weather clothing just yet.

The shell you wore last season under the sweater can be combined with a mini skirt or a pair of khaki pants. How about a halter top? You can put that with that skirt or pants. They look just like a fresh outfit.

Use your creative flair to generate new outfits from the pieces you already have in your closet.
Accessories are your friend and you can put a fresh coat of paint on your outfit.

Accessories make an ensemble more unique and individual. Classics become fresher and less basic when you put accessories with them.

Have an all black outfit? Put some pink accents with it. Or maybe some red.

Have a favorite pair of jeans? Make them summery with a cute pair of espadrilles.

Store that practical purse and carry the one with the bamboo handles this season.

Grab a puka shell necklace and bracelet and in an instant you look like summer. Flip flops give any outfit a summer feel. A straw purse screams beach and summer.
