Finding perfect pieces and brilliant bargains is rewarding and thrilling, but nothing beats the feeling of putting the items to work. After all, wearing your items is the point of creating a functional and stylish wardrobe in the first place.

Wear Your Wardrobe

Don’t reach for the same outfits repeatedly just because they are easier to access or launder. Wear dressier items more often by combining them with a support act – denim, sneakers, flats, or a crossbody bag – to create everyday wearable outfits.

Your wardrobe is valuable. Wear it, don’t stare at it. Life’s too short to save items for good. Feel free to ration items that are super special or very dressy, but wear the heck out of the rest. Whittle the cost-per-wear of items down to nothing.
