CURATE YOUR PERFECT WARDROBE
SHASHI NAIDOO SHARES HER TIPS FOR BUILDING AN IDEAL CLOSET, AND HOW THE UPCOMING SKIP FASHION EXCHANGE CAN HELP
COMBINE STAPLES AND STATEMENTS ‘ The perfect wardrobe has a mix of classic pieces and bold items. Keep an open mind when it comes to the statement pieces – if you go to the shop with an agenda, you could miss out on great and unusual finds. That’s why I love heading to the Skip Fashion Exchange, where you can swap unwanted clothes for spectacular pieces you didn’t even know existed.’
EDIT, EDIT, EDIT! ‘Instead of hanging on to the garments that never make it out of your closet, head over to your nearest Skip Fashion Exchange, where you can swap them for someone else’s pre-loved items. It’s a win for your wardrobe.’
CHOOSE QUALITY OVER QUANTITY ‘It’s a better investment to buy a few high- quality pieces that last, than to buy loads of cheaper things that date or wear. Good care, such as washing with Skip, can also give your clothes longevity, guarding against colour fading. Yes, please!’
STICK TO YOUR STYLE PERSONALITY ‘ There’s no rule book when it comes to style: it’s about what suits you, and about finding your own sense of fashion. Don’t like a trend? Don’t follow it! Choose pieces that make you feel confident.’
WANT TO SWAP OUT OLD PIECES AND REJUVENATE YOUR WARDROBE? Join Shashi and refresh your closet at the Skip Fashion Exchange at Sandton City from 4 to 31 July 2017.
