It happens to everyone at some point. We can't have it all figured out every single day. You are getting ready to leave the house for the day but have no idea what to put on. Maybe you're in a hurry. Maybe you've been so busy with life that your laundry has been done but everything is still in hampers or on a pile in the closet. As a business owner and mother of two daughters, I found myself in this situation more commonly than not. Here are a few things I did to lessen the chance of my morning meltdowns before a long day at the office.


Create a routine that provides structure and order

Routines have definitely helped in my day-to-day life. Creating a structured and orderly way to get myself and the girls ready in the morning has truly proved to be one of the most steps to cutting out anxiety for myself and the girls. Our routine begins the night before with laying out their clothes for the day, baths, and bed. I chose to pick my clothing in the morning when they are still sleeping and I have quiet time to myself. I realized that trying to get them dressed and finding clothes for myself was causing havoc in our lives and in our morning routine.


Do a Wardrobe edit to help with the declutter.

A wardrobe edit is very important in minimizing closet meltdowns. Going through your wardrobe and determining what does not fit, what is damaged, what is no longer or has never been flattering, and what you simply don't wear is a vital part of this process. By removing the clutter, you have opened up a world of possibilities with a lesser chance of disappointment. Creating more of a capsule wardrobe for your closet is a safer bet in cutting back on anxiety when searching for a look for the day.


Organize your closet so things are easier to grab.

Once you have removed the clutter, it's time to organize what you have remaining. There are so many ways you can choose to do this step. I like to color code my closet so I can pair my looks for the day. Some clients prefer to organize by season and type of items (blouses, dresses, pants, blazers, etc.). Whatever your preference may be, organizing your space will make it easier to grab what you need and get ready for your day.


Set your intentions for the day so you know HOW to dress.

The last step is to be intentional with your selection. Take a second and think of what needs to be accomplished for the day before you go to look for your outfit of the day. If you know that it will a rainy day, you would possibly pass on something that is long and flowing. Maybe you have physical therapy to do after your finish your work day but won't have time to change before you head over to the clinic. A cute dress or skirt would not be the best option for the look that day. Simply take a few moments and really consider what you need to achieve for the day and pick a look that will suit your adventure.

Fashion trends come and go but your personal style is unique to who you are and how you want to see you. You can develop your unique style by searching for inspiration, creating a mood board, and experimenting with fashion. People display their personal style through their clothing, accessories, hairstyles, and the way they wear their outfits.


Read the following descriptions below to learn more about the five personal style types.


Classic

The Classic Style Type is safe, clean and traditional. You know what works for you and you tend to stick with it. You value longevity over trends and most likely have established somewhat of a fashion uniform, a trusted look that is both timeless and flattering with a smart flair.

In the Classic Style Type’s wardrobe, you’ll mostly find neutral colors with the occasional pop of red or green. A white blouse or a crisp white shirt is a staple for this fashionista’s closet. Accessories are simple such as a strand of pearls, diamond studs, but nothing ever over the top.


Chic

The Chic Style type is known for wearing monochromatic ensembles and pieces with sleek clean lines – she exudes power and has an innate sense of fashion. She often chooses black, white, and neutrals, saving color for a bold statement accessory such as an alligator skin purse or a bright led lipstick.

In the Chic Style Type’s wardrobe, you will find sleek, modern shapes and of-the-moment accessories. A little back dress is always a staple, as is a little white dress. Accessories and outerwear are where she gets adventurous.


Whimsical

Whimsical style types adore color and have a natural ability to mix and match colors, patterns, and textures. She is rarely seen in black, instead she favors bright blues, pinks, and greens, with the occasional neutral such as taupe or brown.


In the Whimsical style type’s closet, you’ll find loads of playful prints and accessories. The Whimsical style type isn’t afraid to stand out, in fact, she thrives in the spotlight and enjoys having all eyes on her and her fanciful sense of style


Bohemian

The Bohemian Style Type is the most casual and carefree of the style types. They mostly stick with an earth tone palette-steering towards browns, camel tones, denim. And pieces rich in burgundy and hunter green. Never one to shy from a print, Bohemian style types love a classic paisley or animal print- specially in the form of a blouse or a flowing dress.

Bohemian ladies are known for favoring long, sweeping silhouettes—romantic silk maxi dresses and willowy oversized blouses are must-haves in their wardrobes as are fringe accents and lots floppy hats.


Avant-Garde

Arguably the most adventurous, the avant-garde woman sees fashion as wearable art. She adores playing with shapes and proportions and although she favors black for everyday, she’s not one to shy away from whites, bright colors, or even metallic.

In Avant-garde Style Type’s wardrobe, you’ll find various different shapes, asymmetrical hemlines, and pieces with lots of volume. She also has a predilection for menswear-inspired clothing and loves the idea of wearing a tuxedo pantsuit for formal events. Most of her handbags and jewelry are statement-making and fashion-favored, but she has a keen awareness of how to create a sleek and balanced look.

A wardrobe consultant's job is to help theirclient discover thei personal style and fine tune their look while complimenting their body type. What you wear affects how people see, respond, and interact with you. What you choose to wear can uplift you or stop you dead in your tracks.

Ninety percent of your communication is based on your appearance. Your appearance is a visual representation that remains after the conversation is over. Failure to make the connection could result in a block between you and intended audience. How you look and feel about yourself affects how others interact, trust, communicate or relate to you. This is not a small thing. However, before you work with an wardrobe consultant, be sure you're clear on who you are and what you want to accomplish in your professional and personal life.


As a consultant, I perform a style assessment to begin the process of shopping, styling, and coaching my potential clients. Depending on the needs of the client, I may perform wardrobe edits, color analysis, photoshoots, or even digital branding. Through analysis and coaching, clients learn the science of styling and what looks fit for their body type. This often extends into the home. This is where closet edits become a powerful tool. Together, we can go through your wardrobe and remove items that no longer suit your style and instead fill it with the right things saving you space, time, money, and hours of searching for the "right thing to wear."


Working with a wardrobe consultant is not a one-and-done type of situation. As you change in life or career, so should your sense of style. Think back to your days leading up to your senior year of high school. Now think to your junior year of college. What style are you wearing now? My role as a wardrobe consultant is to help my clients stay current and fresh. This doesn't mean staying trendy! It simply means that your look should be relevant to what you are showing your audience. A dated look can come across as the person being out of touch or irrevelent. Remember, your clothes speak! If it's been a while since you've updated your wardrobe, it may be time for you to reach out to a wardrobe consultant to help.
