MaxMara Spring catalog

The summer days are slowly leaving and I feel myself changing my wardrobe again. All the jackets are back and I also picked up a new one...Just couldnt help myself :p The dresses are back in the closet and gotten into a hectic routine of work, play time wit my son at school and evening outings. As a result of all the activitiy I need to get into more sleep and do more yoga too... :D Lets see if this week I can do this. Summer gives us a chance to change up our wardrobe and mix a lot of the clothes we have. I have friends who tend to keep buying clothes all the time and I have been guilty of doing the same. So some tips from me on how I mix up my existing clothes to jazz up my daily wear rather than need to keep investing in new clothes...

Neutral colors 

I love pastels! They bring out the best in my wardrobe and easy to blend. A pale pink jeans or top with black or any colour goes beautifully and it also adds colour! I dont have the need to have multi coloured clothes or prints. Too loud. I think neutral colors are the easiest way to be to mix it up with strong colors and they look elegant no matter what the look. If you are looking for a casual one or sophisticated look all are the best in neutral colors and pastels are definitely some of my favorites. Whenever I have a confusing day I would go for pastels, they go easy with any looks. 

Mix n Match

I used to have this habit of too many pants for some reason. Dont ask me. Then one day I looked at my wardrobe and realised its ridiculously high. So now I invest in few pants and tops that I know I absolutely love. Its totally great to manage your clothes and mix up the pieces. I am also someone who doesnt like to go shopping and buy random stuff. I prefer to mix my high end pieces with the high street looks. Always utilize your closet and experiment. I have always seen friends spend so much money on clothes and hopefully realise the pieces suit them. Now that is something i have been guilty of, I have seen pieces that dont suit me and I have been able to handle the issue always. 

Buy quality

Clothes that you can use for longer periods too. If you budget yourself and spend once in a while rather than regularly u will have a wardrobe you enjoy going through, rather than wanting to remove most of the clothes. Buy few pieces, good quality and make sure you really like the clothes and fit well and they suit you well. I totally believe that buy quality, the moment you compromise on that you will find it to be very difficult and the clothes dont look classy and the material can be seen very disappointing. 

Lifestyle oriented dressing
Currently I am a mom and haven't gone back to full time job. So naturally, formal attire isnt high on my priority list. That what you need to focus on. Shop for your regular wear. Rather than a party dress you might use just once in a while. So maybe if you are working or in sports. Make sure you invest in your clothes the same way.

Seasons change and so should you 
In winter the jackets and clothing are definitely hitting my budget more than the other wardrobes. So make sure to check your budget per season too! I pick up few pieces for winter, just the essentials. Too many sweaters or thick clothes doesnt make sense becoz you can always wear a big jacket when you go out. So think through before you decide to spend.
