Storage And Your Fashion Wardrobe

Creating a fashionable and stylish wardrobe requires you to know what will work best for you. Understanding how factors such as your lifestyle and personal sense of style influence your fashion will make shopping for clothes much easier and more enjoyable. But you also need to consider that you may already have the perfect wardrobe nestling amongst all your ‘stuff’, so you may need to take a look at what you already have before you buy more.

Using a Storage Unit

First things first, you need to sort those wardrobe and drawers to see what you already have in your arsenal. Declutter your space so you can see what you’ve got, and get rid of anything that no longer fits, or you no longer wear. Once you have done this, sort out your seasons and store clothes that you wont’t be wearing for three months or more. More and more people continue to use storage units for storing their clothing because they simply require more space. Storage units like Now Storage Swindon offer a safe, clean and practical solution to your lack of space, with storage units are designed to protect your items from the elements and keep them in pristine condition. Units are padlocked and secure, monitored by CCTV cameras 24 hours a day, and have 7 days a week access.


Although you may be aware of what you place in your storage units, you may find it difficult to remember where you placed various items after a period of time. Avoid the challenge of struggling to find your items when you need them by placing labels on everything. You can also include a checklist that will let you know where everything is.

Now you’ve sorted, what else should you consider?

Fashion makeovers are most effective once your closet is organized. With your out of season clothes out of the way, you can organise by colour or by day/evening wear. An organised wardrobe not only saves you time, but money as well. Your wardrobe forms the basis of being able to create your own unique style. Trends give you inspiration and ideas that you can include in your closet.

Standing out from everyone else is a worthwhile challenge. Keep up with the latest fashionable trends by determining which trends suit you before updating your closet.

Friday Fashion – Boden Breton’s

When we talk about style classics, what do we mean? There are some items that every wardrobe should have that definitely fit the bill, the little black dress, the crisp white shirt, the classic string of pearls, indigo skinny jeans, a leather jacket…you can probably add more to this list, and now I am going to add one more to the list. The Breton striped top.

It was Coco Chanel who took the staple of Breton fisherman’s wear, the navy and white striped top with long sleeves, and made it into a fashionable piece. Wearing it with wide legged trousers, she created a look that was stylish and yet simple, highly effective in terms of chic,and yet also comfortable and practical. Since then, the mantle has been carried on by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Jane Birken, Ines De La Fressange, Emmanuelle Alt and Kate Moss, all of whom wear this staple with aplomb.

This season, Boden has taken the classic Breton and has put its own spin on it. It is a perfect spring piece as the days can still get chilly, and this offers more coverage than the average t-shirt, but is still thinner than a jumper. Boden have added colours to the stripes, have changed the length of the sleeves so you can get short sleeves, 3/4 length and the traditional long style. They have added multi colour cuffs that are just gorgeous and add real interest to a often forgotten part of a top, and have also incorporated dots and mixed stripes into their designs. Plus, of course, there is the classic Breton, just in a range of different colours teamed with the traditional white.
