After getting inspired its time to attack your closet .If your closet is cluttered with a lot of stuff its hard to curate outfits.Many a times we run out of new outfit ideas because we are not able to see what exactly is in our wardrobe. So its time to clean it. Only keep pieces which you love. If you know you are never going to wear a dress, do not keep it. Also segregate pieces which do not fit you.Make different piles of your clothes- 

  • The pile you want to keep 
  • The pile you want to donate
  • The pile which needs alterations

3) Get your basics right

Well basics are basics, right? While you may feel that basics are boring, they are essential (quite literally). We are going to build most of our new outfits around our basics, so make sure that they fit perfectly. Some basics every girl should own are

  • A white t shirt 
  • A black t shirt 
  • A white or black blouse/top
  • A pair of dark skinny fitted denims 
  • A pair of leggings preferably black
  • A white crisp shirt
  • A pair of Formal pants
  • A classic blazer
  • A black leather jacket

This is our basic list. You can add any other basic of your choice, after all its your closet

  • Get your new mood board out for reference. 
  • Go to your closet and grab a piece of clothing that you are struggling with like a top that you always pair with the same denim and are bored with the look of it, lay it flat on your bed or a chair. 
  • Next bring out all the bottoms you own – yes all of them! Your shorts, palazzos, pants, and skirts and pair them with the blouse one by one.
  •  Then take pictures of each pairing. 
  • Take a look at all of the pairings and if you like any pairing – try it on. You will be surprised to find combinations that you might never think of yourself.
  • Once you really like a pairing you can start building the entire outfit around it . Bring some shoes , sneakers, heels, bags and accessories to mix and match with your newly curated outfit and see what looks good with it.
  • Once your look is locked down take a final picture of all the elements of your outfit put together.
  • Volla !! You have a completely new look ready.
