Check your wardrobe
: Before heading to the store, it’s important to find out what’s hiding in your closet. Many people don’t realise their own clothes can be used in creative ways. Spruce up that old belt by wearing it on top of a sweater or tie a scarf in your hair as a headband. Don’t let those clothes sit around unused.
Turn basics into stylish
: The secret to any good mix-and-match wardrobe is that you have to own basics that you can wear with a variety of outfits. Essentials include white, black and grey T-shirts, black pants, dark jeans, a bunch of colourful blazers and pumps. With these, you can transform your outfits quickly and easily.
Match pattern colours
: When mixing and matching patterns, you can put a variety of patterns together as long as they have the same or complementary colour scheme. Similar colours will help the eye flow from top to bottom without stopping on each pattern. Match busy patterns with simple ones for a nice effect.
: Try matching strong colours to create three-toned attire if you want to be more daring in your dressing. A black camisole with a red cardigan and a white scarf will create a cool looking three-toned top.
