Although some people may consider a style uniform boring, others may find it less stressful as they don’t have so many options to decipher before walking out the door. If you are looking to create a style uniform that makes you look your best every day and reduce the stress of selecting and pairing outfits, here are some tips on how to get started.
Pare it down – If you’re looking to create a style uniform look at simple patterns or solid colors in classic silhouettes that you can easily purchase and replace.
Versatile – You want your wardrobe to be versatile and match your work and social situations. Base your wardrobe on staples that can be dressed up or down depending on the situation. Black or white staples are a good choice.
Make comfort a priority – Comfort is important, so make it a priority and only invest in pieces that are the right size for your frame. s
Choose pieces that transition well – You want pieces that can be worn across all season as this means that you will get more wear from your pieces and you can maintain your uniform throughout the year.
Flexibility – Getting the same item can be stressful and sometimes impossible, so be flexible with length, fabrics, and details when replacing or investing in new pieces.
Start small – Start with five tops, two jackets, three pairs of trousers, two pairs of pumps, and a belt. Then gradually add to your pieces to complete your wardrobe.
