How To Outfit Plan Like A Pro
Because we all deserve a stress-free morning and an outfit worthy of the runway.
It’s Monday morning and your alarm goes off at 5:30am. Not only would you rather be doing almost anything in the world other than getting ready for a day of work, but now you have to rummage through your closet (or the towering heap of clothes on your floor) to find an outfit for the day. More often than not, this leads to frustration and ends up with you running out of your front door 10 minutes behind schedule. Many of us have perfected this morning routine and have it down to a T, but it’s time we switch up our old habits. We deserve relaxing, stress-free mornings where we actually have the time to enjoy a cup of coffee while it’s still hot, and this is why we’re here to give you the best tips and tricks for planning your outfits each day. By having your outfits planned for the week before you wake up each morning you’ll save yourself the stress of running around last minute to grab your pants from the dryer, your shirt from the corner of your floor, and you won’t have to worry about not being able to find a matching pair of shoes. Learn some valuable tips and tricks to make your mornings easier and your life less stressful with How To Outfit Plan Like A Pro.
Use Outfit Planning Apps
When it comes to organizing your wardrobe and getting some outfit inspo, a fashion app will be your best friend. There are tons of apps out there that serve as your own personal stylist. Simply take pictures of your clothing, upload them to the app, and piece together different items to form the perfect outfit. This is especially great for all of us who are too lazy to try on tons of outfits, or simply just aren’t sure what pieces to pair together. Closet+ is a great app for beginners, but since it’s free it doesn’t have all the premium features a paid app will give you. No worries though, this app is still a great place to start and if you’d like to move on to one with better features, take a look in your piggy bank!
Turn Your Hangers
Turning your hangers is an easy way to prevent yourself from repeating the same pieces of clothing over and over. When something that you just recently wore comes out of the wash, hang it back in your closet in the opposite direction than you normally do. By doing this, you’ll easily be able to tell which items you recently wore so you can make sure you’re not repeating the same outfit too often. Try to wear each item in your closet before going back for items that are on turned hangers.
Plan Your Week
Planning your activities for the week, such as if you have certain projects or meetings at work, is a good way to make sure you’re always prepared outfit wise. Make sure you check the weather too, because the last thing you want is to have it in your head that you’re wearing a sundress and sandals and wake up to torrential downpours! The best time to outfit plan for the week is Sunday night and it’s best that you plan an outfit for each day so that there’s no morning stress when you’re running late Thursday morning with no outfit picked out. Having one or two backup outfits is a good idea too, just incase the weather changes on you last minute.
Search For Inspiration
When it comes down to it, we can all use a bit of inspiration here and there when it comes to trying to pull together cute outfits. Thankfully, inspiration can be found almost anywhere, so pull out those binoculars and get to people watching! Kidding – for the most part. The binoculars aren’t necessary, but people watching is in fact the easiest way to get inspired. Everyone has their own unique look, and you may fall in love with a look you never would have thought of putting together yourself. If people watching isn’t your thing you can never go wrong with gathering some inspiration from Pinterest!
Closet organizers like this one are perfect when it comes to outfit planning. Simply attach an index card to each section of the organizer with the day of the week and place your outfits accordingly in each section. If you have any plans during the day that require you to bring something, such as a yoga class after work that you need gym clothes for, fold an index card in half and place it on top of your outfit telling you what you need to bring so you don’t forget anything.
