Sometimes coming up with a new outfit ideas can be a pain, especially when the weather isn’t quite as warm as you’d like.:) Sometimes you wonder if you've come to the end of your closet and can't possibly think of a new combination. Being fashionable does not have to be your top priority in life - in fact, spending a little more time up front can save you a lot of time in the long run. It will eliminate those 20 wasted minutes in the morning when you aren't feeling all that creative anyway. To help you out, we combed a few tips for getting inspired and creating new outfits!
1. Clean your closet.
Kicking it off with cleaning is not very fun, but having a feng shui closet is completely necessary for creativity. When things are cluttered, dirty, or bursting at the seams, it's not a good environment for brainstorming. Your closet should be a happy place. So if you're feeling stuck, try cleaning things up a bit first.
2. Take inventory of what you already own.
While you are cleaning your closet, take inventory of what you already own as a way to get inspired. It's time to raid the dark corners of your closet and the spare clothes under the bed. Even if items are out of season it can help to pull them out and browse. You could wear a tank top under a thick sweater in the winter, for example, and create a whole new outfit out of what you already own.
3. Regularly read inspirational publications.
