How Do I Start A New Wardrobe?

In this guide, we’ll explain the steps you should take to start a new wardrobe. A new wardrobe can help you feel good about yourself and get fit, which is great for your career too!

Step 1: Get inspiration

In order to start a new wardrobe, you need to know what you want. I hear a lot of people say things like “I don’t care if I look good” or “I don’t want to spend money on clothes”—but those are excuses. You should care about how you look! You should want to wear nice things and present yourself as someone who cares about their appearance (even if you’re not doing it for anyone else).

This is why we start with step 1: get inspiration from things that you like, whether it’s an outfit in one of your favorite magazines or a new pair of shoes that caught your eye online. Of course, there are lots of ways to find inspiration online; Pinterest has become something of a goldmine for finding trendy pieces at affordable prices. But if the items featured in these photos aren’t within your budget range yet (or if they’re just not available where you live), then consider going straight-up window shopping instead!

Step 2: Make a target list

Now that you have your inspiration, it’s time to make a list of the pieces you need. This includes things like coats and jackets, as well as shoes and purses. Once you have this list, go ahead and compare it with your current wardrobe so that you can start figuring out what items are missing.

The next step is to create a wishlist for yourself! Look at the colors or patterns in each piece of clothing on your inspiration board—whatever speaks to you most—and then use those colors or patterns as inspiration for creating a new look for yourself.

Step 3: Audit Your Wardrobe

A wardrobe audit is a time-honored way to get rid of clothes that are worn out or don’t fit, and replace them with new items that you actually want to wear. But there’s more to it than just picking up the phone and asking your friends if they want your hand-me-downs. Here’s how you can use a wardrobe audit to build a stylish, functional new wardrobe:

  • Create an inventory of everything in your closet so that you don’t forget anything during the process. This includes accessories like hats, belts and jewelry; shoes; dresses; coats (jackets); pants (slacks); jeans; shirts/blouses; sweaters/cardigans/sweatshirts/hoodies; jackets (formalwear); swimsuits/bikinis

Step 4: Think about fit

When you’re building a new wardrobe, fit is key. You want to know your body type and what works for it. If you like wearing tight clothing, then don’t try to make yourself into someone who wears flowing tops. A larger person might not be able to wear things that are too fitted or tight in places because of their size.

If you haven’t tried on new clothes before, now is the time: go into stores and try on items that interest you! You should also know what fits well so that when shopping online later on, you can find clothes that fit well. Measurements are an important way to figure out what sizes work best for different brands, and knowing your own measurements will make finding clothes online much easier as well: just use your measurements as a guide when searching for clothing online or in stores (make sure all of them are correct though).

Step 5: Plan your purchases

Once you’ve got your wishlist sorted, it’s time to plan your purchases. The best way to do this is to use a calendar app on your phone or computer. This will keep track of when things can be purchased and when they will arrive so that you don’t overspend or forget about something important.

Step 6: Buy the clothes

  • Buy quality over quantity.
  • Don’t buy clothes that don’t fit you properly.
  • Don’t buy clothes that don’t go with anything else in your wardrobe.
  • Don’t buy clothes that are uncomfortable to wear or unflattering on you.

The best way to start a new wardrobe is by getting inspired, making a list of target pieces and buying those clothes.

Getting inspired is the first step in building your ideal wardrobe because it allows you to visualize how the pieces will come together and help you determine which styles are right for your body type and sense of style.

Once you’ve decided on the types of clothing you want to add to your wardrobe, it’s time to make a list! Make sure each item on this list is something that truly speaks to one or more aspects of who you are as an individual: For example, if “getting dressed” means putting on jeans and my favorite T-shirt every day then my ideal wardrobe would be comprised mostly of casual basics like jeans and tanks.


This is the first article in a series of four blog posts on “How to Start a New Wardrobe.” The next blog post will focus on how you can start building a wardrobe from scratch, without having any clothes in your closet. In the third blog post we’ll talk about what to buy when starting over with a new wardrobe and how to avoid buying things that are cheap but don’t last long. Lastly, we’ll cover how to handle weight loss and maintain your new look after losing some pounds!


What are the best ways to start a new wardrobe?

There is no right or wrong way to start a new wardrobe. But there are some things you can do that will make your experience easier and less stressful. One of the easiest ways is to go through your existing clothes and get rid of anything you don’t wear, don’t fit well or aren’t in good condition. You should also take note of the items in your closet that you do love and want to keep around so that when it comes time for spring cleaning next year, those things won’t get tossed out with the rest!

How do I start a new wardrobe on a budget?

A lot of people ask us how they can start their wardrobes without spending tons of money. We recommend shopping around at thrift stores or consignment shops if possible (you never know what treasures might be lurking inside!). If this isn’t an option for whatever reason, try searching online for discounts; many retailers offer them during certain times throughout the year—and if not then maybe wait until after Christmas when there tends to be more sales happening anyway!
