How to Build a Wardrobe: Evaluating Your Lifestyle and Wardrobe

When it comes to building a new wardrobe, a lot of people miss this very important step: Evaluating Your Lifestyle. This should be one of the very first steps that you take before revamping your wardrobe. How do you know what to purchase if: 1. You haven’t evaluated your lifestyle. 2. You don’t really know where you spend the majority of your time.  And 3. You don’t know what you already have in your closet.

It’s important to evaluate your own lifestyle because everyone lives a different life and has different needs. A 16-year old’s ideal wardrobe is going to look different from a 28-year old working professional’s wardrobe. A stay at home mom’s wardrobe is going to differ from someone that works in corporate America.

It is important that your wardrobe reflects your needs, personality, and lifestyle. Your work (dress code), income (how much disposable income you have for clothing), and surroundings (location based on the weather) should all play a role in helping to determine your wardrobe needs.

Most of us have a closet full of clothes but we often find ourselves saying “I don’t have anything to wear.” This could be because your wardrobe does not match your lifestyle.

Things to think about when evaluating your wardrobe would be: What type of clothing do you spend most of your time in? Casual, active, professional, business causal, semi-dressy, dressy, formal? What is your wardrobe mostly made up of? What would make your closet more practical? What key items are you missing? What could you hold off on buying because you already have a lot of?

I have created an eBook that will help you to evaluate your current lifestyle so that you can have a better grasp on building your new wardrobe. Also, here is a sneak peek of the worksheet, I have filled it out based on my very own personal wardrobe needs. Sign up using your email to receive a free copy of the eBook below! Be sure to share this post with any friends that you know are in need of revamping their wardrobe.
