Are you bored of your closet and need a little refresh? Here are three easy ways to have more fun with your closet so your personality shines through and you feel excited to get dressed.

How to have more fun with your closet

A couple of weeks ago I got an email from a reader who said she always plays it safe with her closet, and she just wants to have more FUN with her closet.

I love this so much. I think we all struggle with this from time to time — things can get boring!

But I think for many of us, we associate a “fun” closet with a “bold” closet. And that seems scary and outlandish and uncomfortable, so we just stay in our safe corner and never make a change.

I have good news for you!

There are so many ways to have more fun with your closet WITHOUT getting crazy and buying every new trend or something that’s not our style.

1. Get out of your outfit rut.

I think we’re all guilty of finding our “uniform” and struggling to deviate from it.

If you’re wearing jeans and a tee every single day, or leggings and a sweatshirt, or sweatpants and a pajama shirt every.single.day, it’s time to mix it up.

Put on a some fun FLATS LIKE THESE, wear a BRIGHT COLORED SWEATER, or put on a fun pair of EARRINGS with a t-shirt or sweatshirt. Do something out of the ordinary on an ordinary day.

2. Add accessories!

You know I’m all about simple outfits, but I add fun with a BANDANA SCARF in my hair (like I did here), a pair of STATEMENT EARRINGS, a CHIC BELT, or a pair of cool SNEAKERS. Or if you want to keep your outfit pieces super neutral and basic, try adding a FUN BAG STRAP  with your purse so you have that pop when you’re out and about, but keeping it simple otherwise.

A basic tee or sweatshirt or sweater and jeans is suddenly purposeful and cute with a great accessory or two!

3. Push yourself outside your comfort zone a little bit.

It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut and feel like you “can’t pull it off” when it comes to this or that style. But the thing is, you CAN pull anything off if you want to. It’s all about your mindset. The only thing holding you back is your brain! So push yourself outside your comfort zone and bit and wear a jumpsuit, a bold colored sweater, a pair of statement shoes, or a ruffled top.

And here’s a tip: for these bold pieces, choose them in colors that feel “safe” for you. If you want to try a jumpsuit, choose a BLACK JUMPSUIT. It’s so much easier to wear than one with polka dots or that’s bold red. If you want to try a ruffle sleeve top, pick a WHITE RUFFLED TOP.  It’s hardly different than your white t-shirt! This will help you ease into the change without feeling uncomfortable or overly bold.

    I agree wth you 100% My work ‘uniform’ is pants and a plain top, usually black or brown pants and my tops are all neutral colours, except for one red one but I only wear that on days when I’m feeling really confident ha! The main way that I add colour or interest is with a scarf, I have amassed quite a collection in the past year and most of them are cotton or viscose [easy care] and long enough that I can drape them around my neck twice, or do the loop tie. They’re also wide enough that they can be a wrap if the office air-con is too cold, plus they add colour to a basic outfit 🙂
