22 is a great age to leave your teen look, style and clothing behind and move into clothes that look more mature but not too old. Take into consideration what activities you are involved doing when making your plan. Once you have a plan shop for the clothing items you need during sales. You can shop consignment or thrift shops to find clothing and accessories for a unique look. Take some time and experiment by trying clothes on and checking in the mirror to find clothing that flatters your body type. Clothing looks more flattering if it fits well, not too tight, too baggy, too short, or too low-cut.
Build A Basic Wardrobe
There is no perfect basic wardrobe that applies to all. A basic wardrobe takes into consideration lifestyle or clothing for all of our activities. If you are a hockey coach your wardrobe is going to be a lot different from a corporate lawyer’s. However when we choose a basic article of clothing it is something we should plan on wearing many times (getting our money’s worth). These items are like good investments since they will reward us many times in the future. When buying basics purchase quality pieces, not necessarily the most expensive.
Knowing your body type/ shape is important. In order to look good you need to choose clothing styles that flatter you. Few if any of us have the “perfect figure.”
