How-To Declutter Your Closet

Greetings Fashionistas!

It's almost summer and, if you haven't sorted out your closet yet(like me!), then here are some tips and tricks on how to start decluttering your closet in order to find your outfits to wear.






Are you ready? Let's do this!


1) Getting ready

This step is to prepare you for the 2-3 hours needed to clean out your closet. What you will need: a clipboard, some paper and a pen, some wooden(or sturdy plastic) hangers, some snacks(in case you get hungry, some water(very important to stay hydrated), some cool music, some storage boxes, garment bags and some garbage bags.


2) Take everything out of your closet
Lay each item on your bed or floor. This way, you will be able to see and sort out each item you own.

3) Sort your clothes

Create and separate the piles of clothing by type(jeans, pants, blouses, skirts, dresses, blazers,etc.)

4) Try on everything

Here, you will need to find out some of the following questions:
  • does this still fit?
  • have I worn it in the last 12-24 months?
  • does it look good on me?
  • is it damaged or worn?
  • would I wear it again?
  • does it have any sentimental value?
  • do I have doubles?

5) Discard or keep

Once you have tried on every piece of clothing, now it's time to discard or keep. The discarded items go into bags for donations. The keep items go into storage(for seasonal items) or back into the closet.
You can also repurpose a piece of clothing. For example, an old tshirt can become a skirt. Just cut the top of the tshirt! 

6) Hang clothes
When putting back your clothes into the closet, hang by activity type(work, weekend, special occasions) and by clothing type(skirts, blouses, etc.) That way you will see what clothes you have and which ones are for the activity in question.


A good tip to help you along with your fashion quest would be to take a before and after picture of your closet. Celebrate your achievement! You deserve it! 

If you need any help with figuring out if your closet need an overhaul, please let me know. You can contact me at jackiemstyle@gmail.com or visit my website to book your appointment

Stay fabulous!

Fashion Dilemmas

Hello Fashionistas!

Have a fashion dilemma? Here are a few helpful tips that offer you simple solutions! 

1. Add a pop of color(shoe, top or lipstick) to a black outfit or a floral print. Or, simply change the black jacket for a classic brown trench.

2. For a casual look on the weekend, choose comfortable yet chic pieces. The Athleisure trend is perfect because you can choose a nice trouser pant, a trench coat, some cute runners, a comfy top, a tshirt dress, a layer like a denim shirt, soft track pants or a metallic sneaker.

3. If you are going to the cottage or a weekend get-away, pack versatile clothes. Start with a printed top(which is a base for other colors) and bottom. Then, add a camisole(with a lower arm hole), a long top with a slit, a sheer kimono cardigan, a nice pair of black leggings, some runners and a metallic shoe.

4. Finally, you can never go wrong with layers. Wear a printed scarf or a bomber jacket. Then, add a versatile bag.

There you have it! With these simple tips, you can easily create dozens of outfits and no more wondering what to wear. :-)

If you have any questions, please contact me!

Stay fabulous!

Today, I'd like to share with you some pictures of the Resort 2018 collections presented last month in Europe. From Chanel to Dior and Prada, every créateur showed us different fashions and accessories. These fashions shows give us a taste of what to wear during our Summer vacations. Elegance and exotic elements could be found in every collection.

Mes tops 10 tendances de la saison automne/hiver 2017-2018

Coucou! 
La présentation des défilés pour l'automne 2017 et l'hiver 2018 sont terminées. Toutefois, on peut se régaler avec les différents vêtements et accessoires que les créateurs nous ont laissés. De Paris à New York, en passant par Milan, on peut y retrouver des tendances qui nous font rêver. Je partage donc, avec vous, mes tendances préférées.


Les chapeaux rétro : On le retrouve sur les passerelles sous toutes ses formes avec une touche de modernité


Le tartan écossais : Un motif classique qui revient à chaque saison. 

Le rouge : Une des couleurs tendance de la saison automne/hiver.

Le col victorien : Une tendance romantique et intemporelle.

Les classiques déconstruits : On déconstruit le veston ou la robe pour lui donner une silhouette moderne. 


Les broderies florales : On les voit partout dans les défilés. Les fleurs ne sont plus que pour le printemps. 


La ceinture large : Pour définir notre silhouette.

Le velour formel : On retrouve le velour partout. C'est la matière de la saison. 


Le manteau ceinturé : Une touche structurée pour nos manteaux.

Le chocolat : Une couleur neutre qui se marie bien avec le rouge ou le bleu marine. 


Avec ces tendances, on peut varier nos ensembles, et ainsi 


retrouver une touche retro et 
unique dans notre 
garde-robe.
