Last Year’s Suit!

For the working women, it can be mundane wearing the same old suit to work year after year.  But if you’re like me, and like to shop, you know how to find different accessories to update the look of your suit. Now a days a suit is not a required look for most offices, so it is nice to buy a full suit but you don’t always have to where the pieces together.

Whether you purchase a pant suit or a skirt suit remember to launder the pieces at the same time even if you did’t wear them together or one piece will fade more than the other.

There are so many new styles and colors of suits as well. You don’t have to stick to the simple black and blue any longer.  Colorful suits are in style depending on wear you work and the time of the year.  A pink suit  may not be appropriate for all office settings.

Also, not all suits are dressy.  There are casual suits, so don’t forgot those casual Fridays or those offices where the attire is business casual.  A cute khaki suit just might fit the bill.

How do I update last year’s suit?

  1. Wearing the latest style and color top or shirt with suit.
  2. Adding the latest accessories e.g, purse, scarf, shoes.
  3. Change the buttons for something more “today”.
  4. Change the Lengthof the skirt, if possible.
  5. Change the length of the jacket, if possible.

Just Hangin Around!

What type of hangers should I use to hang my clothing?

Great question, there are many types of hangers on the market. Some are good and some are not.  The best hangers for hanging dresses and shirts are wooden, plastic or padded, but they have to be of a specific type.  The wooden hangers need to be thick and rounded on the edges as well as the plastic ones.

Don’t use the wire hangers as they leave rabbit ears on the shoulder of your clothing. You don’t want to walk around with 2 little spikes on your shoulders. If you have a bunch of them, try using them for a DIY project.

Pants can be hung one of two ways. They can be folded over a think hanger, that will not leave a crease in the middle like the wooden hangers above or if you have enough space in your closet you can hang them from a two prong pants hanger.  This eliminates any creasing.  Or you can be creative and hang your jeans from S-hooks as I show in one of my previous blog posts.

You can even find creative ways to hang your scarves.  I have a lot of them so these do come in handy for me.
