Build a wardrobe of themes
Creating a cohesive wardrobe means always having something to wear (and something to go with it), and always telling the story of who you are.
One of my favourite ways to build cohesiveness into your personal style: build a wardrobe of themes.
I wouldn't say I only have "one style"—I don't only wear white, or bohemian, or a specific silhouette. Instead, my wardrobe is build on themes and feelings that reoccur and mix together.
What do I mean by themes? Let's look at mine:
ethereal + airy deliate fabrics, pastel shades, romantic vintage pieces
authentic + raw denim, simple cotton tee's, suedes, and plain white
wild + whimsy drapey and slouchy fabrics, half-tucked shirts
Your themes + how you blend them together = your unique personal style
When you build a wardrobe on themes, it's not about fitting into a style box, but instead about create your own unique blend.
When you use themes in your wardrobe, it's easy to see the "odd ones out" in your closet; the peices that don't fit into any of your themes and how you blend them together. And the more we get rid of the pieces that don't represent who we are, the clearer our style becomes to us and to others.
Can you identify running themes in your closet?
