Give your wardrobe a tune-up.








GIVE YOUR WARDROBE A TUNE-UP


Get a Wardrobe Tune-Up

Now that the holidays are over, my tip is to give your wardrobe a tune-up. There are some great sales out there still. But you shouldn’t buy just to buy. It’s only a good deal, if it’s something you’re going to use. So go into your closet and start with your favorite goto items. Be honest. Is it time to retire them? Are they just a bit too worn out? Or, because you’ve changed or evolved, have you out worn them? Now for me, I’ve had a favorite pair of buckle booties and long cashmere cardigan that I loved so much I could have kissed them every time I put them on. But now it’s time to kiss them goodbye.

How to know what to wear.








HOW TO KNOW WHAT TO WEAR
TO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING 



As a costume designer, I’m challenged daily to find the right outfit for the right situation in the story. If you think about it, what I do in Hollywood directly translates to how we should approach dressing for all our personal stories as well. (Not just those occasional “major” dress-up moments.) 





I need to consider a character’s personality, physical assets and the situation they’re in. And where these three converge, the outfit — perfect for the character and perfect for the scene — is found. It’s that simple. Well, guess what? The same is true for all of us. 





Here’s what I mean. Remember those crazy Venn Diagrams we all did in grade school? You know, the line drawings with the interlocking rings? Well, I finally found a good use for them. (No disrespect to you fabulous mathematicians out there.) So, take a look at my Dress Circles. 



Simply switch out your personality for the character’s. Change out your event or situation for the circumstance. And plug in your own physical assets. Now you can use my Dress Circles to dress for the production of a lifetime—your own unfolding story.
