Stress-free Dressing

Looking good and feeling great means taking care of yourself – both inside and out.

So often we are rushed of our feet and don’t really take time out to relax and have some me-time.

Many people today are stressed and need time out. There are so many causes of stress: family pressures, work demands, busyness, and financial pressure.

And with all the other stress we have, we don’t need to add our overflowing yet still unworkable wardrobe to the equation.

Does your wardrobe stress you out? Do you feel like you’ve got nothing to wear? Do you go shopping, only to leave empty handed, frustrated and disappointed? You are not alone. It’s a very common problem, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Here are some tips for stress-free dressing:

Sort your wardrobe out every season

Clutter = stress. Make it easier on yourself by only having viable options to pick from every morning. If you still have half a wardrobe of “skinny clothes” that don’t fit, you’ll only depress yourself. Make sure that your wardrobe is full of clothes that really work for you – they fit well, they don’t need repairing, they are clean, and they mix and match easily.

Know what suits you

If you don’t know what really suits you, then of course shopping is going to be stressful. Once you know what colours suit you, and what styles suit your body-shape you can shop with much more confidence. Check out our services to see how we can help.

Have some no-fail outfits

On those days that you don’t know what wear, you can fall back on your no-fail outfits. These are outfits that you know look great on you, tried and true. This could be a great black dress, or your favourite jeans with a gorgeous top and heels. Throw on some accessories and off you go.

Choose your outfit the night before

This is a great option for those of you who are definitely not “morning people”. Prepare all your clothing the night before (including ironing), so that in the morning, you can just hop straight into it, accessories and all, and leave the house looking stylish and un-flustered.
Shop wisely

You can make shopping so much easier on yourself if you follow a few simple guidelines. Make a list of what you want. Only buy items that go with 3 other things you already own. Wear clothes that are easy to take on and off. See the rest of our Shopping Tips here.
