I picked up this awesome jacket from Forever 21 in the late summer. It’s got a great print that just stood out to me in the store. And at only $32.80 it sure doesn’t break the bank and offered to be a lively piece for my late summer/fall wardrobe. I wore it once to dinner with my husband shortly after I purchased it and then (dread!) it has been in my closet ever since. I hate when I do that!
I’m guessing I am not alone in this?!? Hopefully not! But it always seems to happen to me… I have great “power” pieces in my closet that just sit there or get worn now and again but in the same way. BTW, a power piece would be a piece of clothing that makes a statement, perhaps is on the cusp of a trend or is bold and maybe outside your fashion “box” so to say. So I sat down and did some brainstorming about other outfits – both dressy and casual – that I can incorporate this great jacket with!
At first it seemed silly to me to actually plan outfits in my closet, but now I am realizing I should take time to do this more often. I find that when I am in a hurry I go to my old standbys – which are still great, but may not be doing justice to the other less worn items I own.
Do you ever shy away from your “power pieces”? What is an item you have difficulty incorporating into your wardrobe? We should never let our good fashion go to waste!
