Create A Style Equation From Pieces In Your Closet
What do you own multiples of in your closet?
If you’re like me you are probably have multiples of similar items in your closet. Normally we buy multiples because they suit us, make us feel good about ourselves and communicate effectively how we want to be seen by the world.
You can create a style equation from these pieces.
It’s dead simple.
I realized I own a few (ahem…cough, cough)… leather and suede full midi skirts. They work for my body shape, are extra comfy to wear and make me feel good about myself. I love them so much I’ve accumulated a small collection in different colours.
I’m also attracted to bold, colourful, wildly patterned vintage tops and blouses of which I have multiples of in my wardrobe. They declare my love of vintage to the world and ensure I stand out from the crowd.
When I created my first outfit with a midi skirt, a wild blouse and a neck scarf I felt so much like myself, so comfortable and confident, I knew others outfits were imminent. They were extra easy to pull together once I understood the style equation,
Midi Skirt + Wild Blouse + Scarf + Boots = Me
So I’ve been using this equation on repeat lately and it suits my personality and my closet just fine.
And this is what I wore to the Dior exhibit I went to recently which was awesome!

I’m always in need of photos of us together for our annual family calendar.
As it was a FREEZING day I chose to add another layer of warmth with a leather jacket. This whole outfit was hidden under my long vintage coat but we checked our coats at the door. It was a frigid -20 C but feeling like -30 C that day with the wind. I’m so thankful it has warmed up to above zero now. Even if it only lasts a few days it is a much needed break.
Here are two other outfits I created with the same style equation that I’m itching to wear.
4 Tips To Create A Style Equation Using Pieces From Your Closet
- Find specific items you have multiples of in your closet.
- Take some time and put together one outfit from those multiples. Make sure the outfit makes you deliriously happy about yourself and your body while communicating the image you want to convey to the world.
- Take note of that outfit. How did it come together? Break it down into your style equation and be specific; top, bottom, shoes, accessories.
- Use your new equation to create more fun outfits.
Once you get on a roll with your new formula it will be hard to stop.
