It’s just past mid winter here in Europe and many of us are really getting into that “nothing to wear” mood even though our wardrobes are stuffed full of clothing!
Does this sound like you at all? I’m going to confess that it happens to me…
Couldn’t fit another coat-hanger into the wardrobe and yet at the same time each morning feeling as though there is nothing suitable to wear. It’s all the “same old same old” clothing. Plus it all seems to be looking very tired…
Keep reading for 5 proven tips that I personally use to survive the mid winter nothing to wear syndrome.
5 Tips to Survive the Mid Winter Nothing to Wear Syndrome
Tip 1 – Take a piece of spring clothing and add it to winter
Has the simple effect of extending your wearable wardrobe and lifts the mood from those dark winter colours. This year i’ve started by teaming up spring white skinny pants with a winter white chunky sweater.
Tip2 – Go through old items and give them new life
Just last weekend I sifted through old coats and took out this inner jacket to wear alone and with other coats. Hubby was convinced I had bought something new and then very cheerful after explaining what I had done – haha!
Tip 3 – Treat yourself to 1 new item that can be combined with many more
Selected carefully, one new item alone can put a new dimension on almost your whole wardrobe. This season a pink baker boy hat has been doing the trick for me.
… oh wow you’ve already seen this hat so many times. I’ll call it a good investment – smile!
Tip 4 – Clear out your wardrobe
As strange as it may seem, getting rid of anything you don’t wear from your wardrobe and only leaving your favourites will actually free your mind too. It will magically become much easier to create new combinations – try it – promise you’ll agree!
Tip 5 – Research
If at a loss for a new outfit one of the easiest thing to do these days is go online for some inspiration.
Here are 3 Instagram accounts I personally love for inspiration:
