Plan Your Wardrobe to Get More Looks Out of a Few Good Pieces

It can be tempting to grab a piece of clothing off the rack in a store that catches your eye, but will you wear it more than once?  Will you wear it all?  This has happened to me many times.  I’ve ended up with clothing in my closet that I’ve never worn, and I say to myself, “What was I thinking… what a waste of money!”.   The tip for today is to plan out a few key pieces that you can mix and match into several different outfits.  Or if you have a personal wardrobe consultant, such as the service Etcetera provides, they will do the footwork for you, and provide feedback about what looks good on you.  You can actually save time and money with a good wardrobe plan and the complimentary service of a wardrobe consultant.

For example, you can get  18 outfits out of these 7 pieces below…
