Select A Few New On Trend Key Items To Add To Your Closet
Each season, I find a few more pieces to update my closet with. Whether it's a wide-leg pant, a jumpsuit, or a shirtdress, I look for items that will last longer than one season.
This year, puffy sleeves and statement shoulders are definitely on-trend, we love this organza blouse with statement sleeves, definitely a closet staple for years to come!
An Eye For Detail
One way to add a bit more personality and interest to your look? It's all in the details- whether it be a belt, statement jewelry, or even the buttons on your jacket. All the little details end up making a big impact! It's JUST as important to your overall look!
Speaking of accessories... the face mask isn't going away anytime soon, so make it a fashion statement as well! We love how fun these masks from Dolly's D-Lite are!
If you haven't worn it in a long time, and it doesn't spark joy? Get rid of it! Make space for future items you will love and cherish!

Update Your Signature Pieces
We all have our tried and true pieces, so why not give our favorite wardrobe items a bit of a refresh?! Give that staple black blazer an update or replace it with an updated version!
Either take it to the tailor to rework, do it yourself, or donate it so that you can have a wardrobe that is just as exciting as you are!
Create A Pinterest Board Of Your Personal Style Inspirations
Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration! We love browsing Pinterest for fun outfit ideas that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves, and to find new to us designers and #StyleGoals!

Wear Something That Scares You
Don't be afraid to try something you have been scared of! This applies to life, as well as fashion! If you always wanted to mix patterns, get to mixing!
If you always wanted to rock a sexy bodysuit as outerwear (with a sleek pair of leggings or a curve-hugging skirt) Do it! Spring is all about blooming... allow yourself -and your style to bloom!
Find A Few New Versatile Basics To Add Into Your Closet
I LOVE a great wrap dress! You can never go wrong with a wrap dress, and they are a classic that can be worn and styled in different ways!
Other versatile basics to consider are shirtdresses, wide-leg pants, and a high-quality white t-shirt!
These are totally closet staples - and while they may not have been part of your essentials before, they totally can be now!
Update the Foundations
I'm talking undergarments! When was the last time you got a bra fitting? The last time you bought shapewear (if this is your thing) or refreshed your underwear collection?
With the new silhouettes for spring, these underthings must be just right so that your garments lay just how they are supposed to! I'm personally not a fan of shapewear but love seamless undergarments. Stock up on seamless underwear like these for a smooth and sleek look!
Play In Items That Make You Feel Confident (Not Just Because It Is On Trend)
While it's always nice to take a fashion risk, it is so important to have items that you feel 100% confident in, filling your closet!
Know Your Measurements
When was the last time you got a professional measurement? Knowing these measurements can help ease your shopping worries when shopping online.
If you don't feel comfortable getting professionally measured, you can still get a super accurate measurement, at home!
Here are some helpful tips on how to get your full measurements!
Organize the Closet
It is one thing to clean out and purge the closet and another to organize it. You're gonna want all your things nice and easy to find when it's time to create looks!
Here's a helpful guide to help you organize your closet!
Own It, And Have Fun Doing It!
One of the things that have helped me most, was taking the seriousness out of it and learning to have a bit more fun AND to think outside of my usual comfort zones
Express yourself freely. It makes a world of difference!
This journey is an ever evolving one, and one that may take a bit longer than you think! So don’t stress if you can’t breeze through each one of these! I’m definitely still working on a few myself!
The beauty is learning who you are or realizing WHAT you want to say with your style, along the way!
Which ones resonate the most with you? Which ones are you excited to start working on? Let’s chat!

Thank you so much for this. I am trying to learn to dress for myself and my confidence. I need to purge my closet and consider what gaps there are. I have a little reward coming in a couple of weeks and I’m thinking Yellow Cardigan….
I am sooooo here for bold colors and hues! HYPED.
I understand that the category of “Plus Size” has been revamped to include those who are a size 10 and up!! PATHETIC actually. Anyway, I am begging you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not fall into the typical catalogue model image as it is a very easy one to fall into. PLEASE do not get away from the REAL plus sized women and start show casing and focusing on the size 10 PLUS SIZE model. Us REAL plus size women need to see REAL plus size fashion on models who we can relate to. There is nothing more upsetting then going through a store catalogue for plus size women and finding all the models are anything but a plus size. Please remember us and don’t ignore us because the definition of the PLUS SIZE has been incomprehensibly lowered to include the perfect size women. Cloths don’t look the same on the perfect shape as they do on more curvy larger girls .
who is this comment directed at? I am a blog- not a catalog seller or retailer…
I am constantly challenging the brands to use bigger models- ALWAYS.
Where can I find the outfit the model is wearing ???????
I am so interested in the latest fashion. I believe every woman can be beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside. Your tips will help us all to get there! Thanks for sharing your insights with us. I love color, and I am going to use most of your suggestions.
