A wardrobe is an interesting library of items. It almost reads like a diary. You could tell a lot about a person you don’t know by going through their wardrobe and seeing the various elements that see repeated use, and which items have been stored for some time. You can see how they might theme outfits, their personal philosophies regarding how to wear certain items, and how the personal and professional meet in the same token.
Of course, we wouldn’t advise you to dig around in stranger’s wardrobes. That being said, turning to your own and considering just what makes you happy can help you figure out how you should style your personal image, and go about taking fashion risks. If anything, this should tell you that having a few personal indulgences and investments that help any wardrobe shine isn’t a negative desire to have – it can quite literally help you express yourself how you are.
But how should you think about indulging in your style, and what if you haven’t thought about dressing for the occasion in some time? Those are worthwhile questions to consider. Let’s talk about them below:
A Beautiful Watch
Beautiful watches are more than just statement pieces. They help emphasize a time, a mood, an investment, a location where they were sourced, and of brand quality that lasts through the ages. There’s a reason Rolex Watch brands are known to this day, they signify craftsmanship, reliability, and long-term worth. But more than that, they can be actively worn to celebrate all of these virtues, and so no matter what your price point is, investing in a beautiful timepiece with an associated strap can be a great means of expressing your personality.
Shoes That Shine
We all have a different philosophy on shoes. You may have forty pairs sitting in your closest, ready to attack you every time you open your closet door and see them all tumbling out. You may just have three pairs, one for work, one for pleasure, one to wear at home. But just like our flooring can define our home’s aesthetic in a subtle manner, the shoes you wear are a testament to your character and will often complete an outfit. Avoid buying fake brands, wear shoes that fit your outfits, and don’t be afraid to indulge a little. Furthermore, don’t only stick with one ideal because you feel stuck to it. Flats can help you feel just as attractive as heels, and they’re just as comfortable – to use an encouraging example:
We all have ‘that item’ that helps us feel like we can express ourselves more prominently. For a mild-mannered manager at a humble firm, it might be that a collection of novelty ties helps put a smile on other’s faces. It might be that for you, wearing hats is something of a personality trait, something you’re always complimented on. Don’t be afraid to expand your collection. If you’re someone who celebrates life through fashion, well, you’ve totally understood the point of fashion, to begin with.
With this advice and insight, we hope you can feel more confident in your wardrobe, even if its unique elements are worthwhile.
