Autum Love: How To Build A Wardrobe.

One of the common frustrations I see when it comes to building a wardrobe is not knowing where to start. The very first thing I recommend if you haven't already is to define your personal style. I talked about defining your personal style before here

I have also written a short free ebook where I expand a little on Discovering Your Personal Style. You can download the workbook here as well.

Once you have defined your style and identified your shopping needs. It's time to shop!

Your lifestyle needs will determine what you should purchase. Everyone's wardrobe essentials are different. You can take a look at my wardrobe essentials and use them as a  reference.

Wardrobe Basics

The core of your wardrobe is what you should start out purchasing.

Your core pieces are pieces that:

You will wear more than once

You can't live without

Can easily be paired with just about everything you own

I would normally say invest in your basic pieces because they will more than likely wear out. But to be honest most of my basic pieces are from stores like h&m, boohoo, and forever21

Your basic pieces should  not only reflect your lifestyle but also your personal style.

For example you may not be a jeans and plain T-shirt kind of girl. So your core pieces could be a top with some kind of detailing such as ruffles, or maybe you like tops with sequins. Instead of denim jeans you love wearing  skirts or dresses. You define what best suits your  wardrobe.

For me one of my core items for this summer is a T-shirt dress which can been seen in the picture. I like to say that my style is casual chic most days, I am also a stay at home mom so anything that is super easy for me to dress up is a win. T-shirt dresses fit in that category for me they can easily be paired with sandals, sneakers, a denim jacket, flannel etc  the options are endless.
