Spring is the Perfect Time To Update Your Wardrobe

Has your New Year’s Resolution paid off already? Been working toward long term weight loss and finally achieved your goal? Congratulations! It feels great to welcome spring by becoming happier and healthier, but you might find yourself in an uncomfortable position if nothing in your closet fits anymore. Clothing that is too large can be as just as unflattering as items that are too tight. While revamping your entire wardrobe might feel overwhelming, particularly if you’re on a budget, there are ways to do a total overhaul without breaking the bank. Spring is the perfect time to update your wardrobe. With a few simple ideas, you can give yourself an entire new look just in time for the beautiful spring weather!

Spring Clothing

Does It Fit?

It might be tough to nail down your new size at first. Not only have you reached your weight loss goal, but other aspects of your body may have changed as well. You might have more muscle mass and a leaner body fat percentage. Everyone has certain cuts and styles that are flattering on them, depending on their body type, and when yours changes, you should make the necessary style accommodations to fit those changes. Take note of the difference in fit of your existing clothing. You may have some pieces that still technically fit but which are no longer flattering.

It’s a good idea to visit a tailor and take new measurements if you haven’t already. For women, bra fittings are an often-overlooked wardrobe component that makes a huge difference in both comfort and silhouette. According to FitDay, many women are not wearing the correct fit, and making a correction could be a night and day change.

Also, now is a good time to try on everything in your closet and put aside the ill-fitting or unflattering clothing. Taking a load of your unwanted clothing to Goodwill is a great way to free up space in your closet and reflect on the new you. When your old clothes are gone, you’ll have additional incentive to maintain your healthy changes that you’ve worked so hard to earn.

Spring Wardrobe

While shopping for clothes at your target weight might seem like a good way to inspire even more change, you keep yourself from living in the present and enjoying the progress you’ve already made. Give yourself a reward and shop for clothes that make you feel great right now, and keep up your training routine at a pace that feels healthy, manageable and comfortable for you to maintain. If you drop another size in a couple months, you can always shop again.

On a Budget?

It can be intimidating when it seems like you need to buy everything new all at once. Will your wallet survive? Restyling your wardrobe doesn’t have to break the bank. When you’ve gathered everything that no longer fits, see if you can consign any luxury items or organize a clothing swap with some friends. Consignment is a great way to earn money for replacement items, and clothing swaps are a fun and social way to build your wardrobe with unique finds.

Luckily for you, according to DailyFinance, April is also the perfect time to get great deals on spring fashion. Spring apparel typically begins showing up in stores in February, but items don’t usually go on sale until two months later. Mid-April sees a discount on many spring items just in time for the weather to start warming up. Additionally, just because a lot of stores hold Easter and spring sales events doesn’t mean you should forget coupons! Visit sites like Ebates, which specialize in offering users extra savings, rebates, and Old Navy coupons, among other major retail deals. By using every tool at your disposal, you can be sure to turn heads this spring without breaking the bank.

Invest and Experiment

Every wardrobe needs high quality separates, so you won’t want to skimp on their quality. For jeans especially, you’ll want at least two pairs that make you look and feel great. When properly cared for, high quality denim can last for years, so it’s worth investing in a pair that you love.

Similarly, you’ll want some quality work apparel that’s versatile enough to mix and match for different occasions. TastyPrettyThings notes that clothing can be stylish while still keeping comfort in mind. Stylish tops and a solid pair of tailored pants or a flowing blouse and a pencil skirt can take you from the office, to errands, to happy hour without a hitch.

Redoing an entire wardrobe after a big transition might seem daunting, but have some fun with it and get clothes that you would never have gone for before. Follow these simple guidelines and you’ll find that spring is the perfect time to build the wardrobe and the confidence you’ve always wanted!
