    Okay, so, I'm deeply unhappy with my wardrobe all the time and would like to throw out some clothes and develop a new style (I'd like a style like http://fauxfurkittens.blogspot.co.uk), but I'm not sure how to go about this. I always just end up buying anything that catches my eye, and then I end up disliking what I have.

    Any advice on buying a new wardrobe, or developing a new style?

    Go through your wardrobe. Be brutal. Throw out anything you don't like, don't wear, or is in otherwise poor condition.

    Plan out your purchases. Buy your basics and core pieces at once keeping the aesthetic you want to go for in mind. Make sure your items all work with several other things too. Also ensure that you have a pair of shoes that works with all items - nothing worse than having a great outfit and realising none of your shoes match! Think it over carefully rather than rushing into it.

    When buying future items, really think about whether or not it'll go with other items in your wardrobe and how much use it will actually get.

    You should by no means throw out your stuff all at once. Just buy one article of clothing in the style that you want to develop whenever you have enough money or sth like that. Or you can set out to buy, say, five thing per month.

    Wow, it's really great advice! I have a problem with buying a lot of stuff that doesn't really match but some of them look too cute and I can't stop myself!
    I will try to follow your advice!

    Try to choose more classic items when shopping, it is always easier to combine classic things. For example, the clothes with print, it suits only clothes with the same print or monochromatic items.
