6 Tips to Make Your Wardrobe Bigger

Try layering a shirt over your dress, for a totally fresh look

Have a closet stuffed with dresses that only make appearances for specific occasions like weekend brunch, spring weddings and corporate gatherings? I sure do. Being active in a sorority during college teaches young women a lot of valuable things such as networking skills, leadership, time management—the list goes on. One bonus of being active in my sorority was that there was always an event happening. These events provided the perfect excuse to throw down some major cash on new dresses perfectly suited to the theme of formals, networking events, mixers and more. So, what’s a girl to do with all of these worn-only-once dresses?

First, try layering them under a circle or A-line skirt. The key here is to make sure the skirt has enough volume to cover the extra fabric of your dress, and voilà—you have just expanded your blouse collection! Any shirt-dress owners in the crowd? Easily turn a fitted t-shirt dress or maxi into the skirt portion of your outfit by throwing on a knotted chambray shirt or boxy crop top. This outfit-hack is perfect for the girl on the go.

    After having a college roomie who had zillions of outfits that she just dropped on a chair after wearing until the chair would fall over onto her bed, I’ve felt that a person needs great self-discipline to manage a large wardrobe…something I don’t think I have but wish I did.

    Am I the only one who wants a complete wardrobe of an anime/cartoon character? A closet full of identical clothes and the only time you will change what you wear is when it’s a special occasion. Just imagine same clothes different day for several years….
