Quiz! Should you jazz up OR simplify your wardrobe?

You’ll hear conflicting advice out there when it comes to your closet and wardrobe.

Jazz up or simplify your wardrobe

Jazz up your wardrobe! Add more options! Buy more prints and colors! Add lots of interest pieces and unique accessories! Start really thinking about what you wear!


Simplify your wardrobe! Take out all the guess work! Stick to a color palette! Invest in basics so you can get dressed without thinking about what you’re wearing!

I work primarily with two types of women:

Type 1: women who want to have a lot of choices in their closets, love putting outfits together with funky accessories and unique prints and collect items like shoes, purses and jewelry. They usually love to shop.

Type 2: women who crave simplicity, who like limited options, who dress because they can’t go around naked and who want a “fix and forget it” wardrobe. They typically do not enjoy shopping for clothes.

It’s interesting that there are creative women in both categories.

Some creative women enjoy the creative process of getting dressed. Others have some much creativity in their lives that they want their wardrobe to be a no brainer so they can focus their creative energy elsewhere.

  1. I am definitely a B. I look in my closet and get frozen in place as to what to wear so I wear the same things and the back of the closet stays untouched. I need HELP!

    1. I hear ya, I can be the same way! They say we wear 20% of our wardrobe 80% of the time. I tend to wear the same items over and over again, I just change the accessories. You’d be a great candidate for a capsule wardrobe I bet! Then that stuff in the back of the closet can just go away and you can buy more of what you’re already wearing. We should have a closet Skype sometime!
