Helpful Wardrobe "How To's"

As I was scrolling through Pinterest last week, I had a thought that it would be helpful to most readers to have a reference for some helpful wardrobe "how to's".  So, that being said, here are some pins that I thought would be most useful...perhaps things we've never really put too much thought into.  See what you think...

Different ways to knot your belt.  Definitely going to want to memorize these. I've only been using one knot all my life!

I loved this pin because I like my belts to be used both at the hip & at the natural waist, which means that when I wear a belt around my natural waist, it typically has a long "tail" left. This pin certainly gives plenty of fun options for dealing with that "tail".


31 Clothing Tips Every Girl Should Know
I thought this was a handy visual for helping choose the perfect necklace for the neckline of your top.  Of course, some rules are made to be broken, but this is a nice quick reference if you need help making a choice for your neck-ware.


31 Clothing Tips Every Girl Should Know

This is a great way to get more use out of your jeans.  If you have a favorite pair of jeans, but they are a straight cut or boot cut, try this to tuck them into your tall boots.

Since we're talking about tucking in pants, how about tips & tricks for tucking in those blouses, sweaters & tee's.  


How to cuff sleeves like they do at J. Crew

A great way to roll-up those cuffed sleeves.  I would image we'll be able to get more & more use out of this technique as the weather starts warming up heading towards Spring.



I hope some - if not all - of these are helpful to you.  Thank you Pinterest for providing us guidance!

  1. I love fun visuals like this! My only problem is that in the time lapse between reading them and actually getting dressed, I forget how to do it. By that point I don't have enough time to run down to my computer and look it up again because I'm running late...or I'm just too lazy. But I really need to figure out the sleeves one. Thanks for the reminders, and now for sure I'll remember I can look them on your blog instead of having to search pinterest. -Gina

    1. I know exactly what you mean! I will be the one in my closet going through 1 or 2 of the belt tying options trying to commit them to memory. Lot's of great tying options on that pin, but I'll be lucky to master more than that...haha!!
