1. Clean Your Closet

The first step to upgrading your wardrobe is to first, clean out your closet. This allows you to see what you’ve got already.

Cleaning out your closet will save you from some clutter. And if you’re able to sell your clothes, will give you some extra money to buy just what you need.

2. Experiment a Little Bit

Trying to update your wardrobe is going to lead to some experimentation. Don’t be afraid to try on some new styles.

3. Vintage Influences

Vintage is definitely in. Vintage styles and accessories are a very popular choice these days. It might be time to dust off your great-grandmother’s earrings or your uncle’s old cufflinks and incorporate them into your new wardrobe.

Vintage pieces are great conversation starters and can add some depth to your new style.

4. Add A Pop of Color to Your Professional Wardrobe

Dressing formally in business suits can be a drag sometimes. But this can be a great chance to incorporate some color into your clothing choices.

Finding a brightly colored tie or some unique heels can help give you a bit of originality, even when stuck behind a cubicle desk.

5. Get Your Craft On

While not everyone is handy with a sewing machine, this can give the more creative of us a chance to show off their skills to their office-mates.

An increasing number of hobbyists have started creating their own wardrobes. Which of course means their clothes are truly unique and fit their body style perfectly.

6. Change Up Your Makeup and Hair Routine

Sometimes modernizing your office-look doesn’t have to go much further than your hair and makeup.

Getting a haircut and learning some new makeup routines can do wonders for your self-confidence.

7. Thrift Your Way to the Top

You don’t have to break the bank to modernize your professional wardrobe.

Thrift shopping is a great way to find those vintage or unique pieces that will make your wardrobe pop. And it has the added benefit of saving you some money.

Some secondhand stores will even buy your old, unwanted items and give you store credit that you can then turn around into your new style!

8. Accessorize and Stylize
