Have you ever opened your wardrobe and wept actual tears of boredom?
Well, you’re not alone. The feelings of acute fatigue at the drab prospect of wearing the same old thing are perfectly natural.
We believe it’s happening to women all across the country. Levels are likely to reach epidemic proportions as women hang up their pretty summer frocks and consider their wardrobe offering for autumn.
Last year’s favourite jumper looks lifeless and you’re struggling to see what you ever saw in it. You’ve fallen out of love. It happens.
What were once deep indigo jeans are now streaky petrol green. Yuk, indigo jeans might be the most flattering shade you can wear but they don’t fade well. No doubt about it, the spark has gone.

The WRT 3 Step Programme
Replenish the Basics
A collection of well-made, well-cut and well-fitting basics are the backbone of any wardrobe. These are your hardest working items, the things you wear every day; jeans, jackets, boots, tops, sweaters.
Inevitably they need replaced more frequently than clothes you wear less often. Each season it’s a good idea to invest in a few basics. Basics need to look fresh and crisp. If your basics aren’t right you might as well not bother.
Every relationship needs a little excitement and this is where statement pieces come in. The statement might take the form of a print, colour or cut. Their role is to bring life and personality to whatever you wear.
A couple of seasonal statement pieces will do wonders for relieving boredom and enlivening the basics. They should make you feel special and dressed whenever you put them on.
We know, you know the importance of accessories but it pays to be reminded every so often. They are also an opportunity to express your personality and experiment with colour and print.
If you take care over your accessories you can skip the statement pieces. An outfit composed of reliable basics and a killer handbag is a great way to put some spark back in your wardrobe.
