To start, You must determine your budget, if applicable. The larger your budget, the quicker you can build your wardrobe. The smaller your budget, the more PATIENT you must be.
Here are 5 steps to Refining your wardrobe
- Purge your current closet and at a minimum, cut you wardrobe in half. As you get your closet built up, revisit and purge older items again.
- Recommendations: Immediately target your shirts. In my opinion, its best to have less than ten. Any more is unnecessary.
2. Build a foundation of classic pieces that will last through the trends. The following are a few suggestions that are the essentials to any closet.
- 1 Blazer - Solid color in blue, navy, black or gray.
- 3-5 Oxford dress shirts. Colors in whites and blues.
- 3-5 pair of denim and 2-3 pairs of chinos. Chinos in colors in brown, black and gray.
- 2-3 sweaters. 1 V-neck, 1 cardigan and 1 shawl. stick with classic colors (blue, navy, brown, black, gray)
- 1 pair of dress shoes on brown or black.
- 1 Topcoat/Jacket. Colors in camel (brown) or black.
- 1 Leather belt in black or brown.
- Minimum of 1 pair of sneakers. Classic or Modern style in white colors.
