Use Your Wardrobe to Practice Self-Care

Your clothes should make you feel good — as in comfortable and confident.

The athleisure wear trend has helped, but not all of us can master that look. And it isn’t strictly business casual. Even if you don’t work outside of the home, you want to look good when you go out.

I’m a fan of the uniform and a capsule wardrobe.

A uniform is a formula for getting dressed: pants, top, cardigan (or some version).

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of pieces that all work together. The colors go together, and you can mix and match the pieces. It makes getting dressed and looking suitable easy.

Neither of these is necessary to look and feel good in your clothes, but they simplify it.

Find some pieces in your closet that fit our 2 C’s: comfortable and confident.

Give them some thought. Why do they work? Why do you feel good when you wear them?

The other night, I wore black leggings, a black sweater, Uggs, and my denim jacket with some jewelry.

Essential pieces and colors plus warm, soft, comfortable, and sparkle.

When you look at your clothes, think about words like soft, comfortable, flattering, warm (or cool). Donate anything that you have to fuss with, or that feels uncomfortable. Dresses are very versatile if you like wearing them.

Once you find what works, you know what to look for when you shop. Decisions will be easier. And you will always look and feel great!
