It’s Week 4 of the Wardrobe Architect over at the Coletterie and this weeks post focuses on identifying our key silhouettes and proportions. This was a great exercise to determine the looks I prefer and start to solidify the style I want to build into my wardrobe. I’m hoping to build an easy to wear uniform (check out Into-Mind for more on this) so I can easily mix and match my pieces.
Last weeks worksheet had us list the proportions and shapes we prefer to wear and mine was mostly fitted clothing with a natural waistline. I really hate to wear drop waist and empire waisted clothing, it looks alright but makes me feel frumpy. My clothing is not very seasonal since I live in Florida and I tend to just layer a bit in winter (it rarely goes below 50) and just wear less in summer when I’m at the beach almost every day.
Look 1 Linen Trousers: Linen Pants+ Sleeveless Tank + Sandals
Look 2 Long Skirt: Skirt + Cropped or Tucked Blouse + Flats
Look 3 Fitted Dress: Natural Waist Short Dress + Skinny Belt + Low Heels
Look 4 Jeans: Jeans + Button Down + Pullover+ Sneakers/Moccasins (Winter)
Jeans + Light Tee/Tank + Flats/Sandals (Spring/Summer)
Look 5 Shorts: Shorts + Print Shirt/ Blouse + Flats
Look 6 Swim: Swimsuit+ Rashguard + Board Shorts/ Skirt + Sport Sandal
Look 7 Fitness: Sports Bra + Tank/Tee + Yoga Pants + Sneakers
I think these looks are going to be so helpful as I plan out my sewing! Do you have a uniform you consistently wear? Or maybe a shape that always looks good on you? I’m really hoping this will make getting dressed in the morning more intuitive & less stressful. Some mornings I know I try on multiple outfits and just don’t feel good in any of them. I’d love to see everyone’s posts/ boards for this exercise so feel free to leave a link in the comments.
Hope you enjoy your weekend! Happy sewing!
