Can anyone give me tips about buying a new wardrobe?

So I really feel the time has come where I need to buy a host of new clothes and I really need some tips on what really would suit me, let me explain.
I’m a 21 year old uni student just going into my third and final year and have come to a point where for various reasons I need to buy all my clothes again. I have always been a little larger than average but recently I have started actively losing weight leading to many of my clothes not fitting me properly any more and the clothes that do still fit are invariably just things I am not really happy wearing now. I have spent most of my life in baggy jeans, a baggy T shirt and some sort of jacket/hoody but now I feel I want to dress in a more “grown up” way and less scruffy. I need some tips about what kind of stuff I should be filling my wardrobe with and what kind of stuff I should avaid.
About me: I’m 21 with short blonde hair, blue eyes and very light skin, wide shoulders and a thick neck. I’m 6ft tall.
Thanks loads.
Sorry to have left this off but I thought it was obvious, I am a man so I’m not really looking for a blouse or dress. Scary woman with a thick neck, wide shoulders with a screen name Richy T :p

  1. I think you should go in stages. Update one part at a time. Like one week dresses, one week jeans. That way you don’t get “on a roll” and start buying a bunch of things you don’t actually need. Think quality for all your basics, not quantity. Good luck.

  2. YES FIRSTLY CHECK AND MEASURE WHAT SPACE YOU HAVE AND CHOOSE A DESCENT WARDROBE IF YOU CAN AFFORD ANYTHING I SUGGEST PINE BUT IF MONEY IS A BIT HARD GO FOR IEKA
    IF ITS FASHION I SUGGEST DEMIN TROUSERS AND JUMPERS OR SWEATSHIRTS WITH EASY TO FIT BLOUSES

  3. OK, the first thing is to sort out your existing clothes into 2 piles – what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of. From the things you want to keep, you’ll get an idea of the shapes, colours and items you need stuff to go with. For eg., if you’ve got loads of tops but no skirts or trousers, or if you’ve ended up with black or white or green mostly – you’ll prob want to get stuff to go with/contrast.
    However, you still want some completely new outfits, and if I were young and slim again in 2007, I’d go for an Audrey Hepburn feel – not as hard to maintain as you might think. Have a look at what she wore in “Daddy Long Legs. I know she was brunette, but it’s a look that is young yet sophisticated. It’s got a “ballet” feel, black tights, short skirts, simple shapes, cinched waist. Red lippy.
    Finally, have a clothes swap party with some fellow students – all bring stuff you no longer want – this is where the stuff in the second pile comes in. You may be able to parley your cast offs into something wearable for no money – good luck !

  4. I would wait until you are sure you have lost all the weight you want too, i am the same and since i have lost so much weight (have gone down three sizes) i have had to update my wardrobe a few times. though one thing my mum noticed is that i no longer dress like a fat person (the baggy clothes etc) but i wont do a whole new wardrobe until i am a 12 (now at a 14 and very rarely a 16)
    buy stuff slowly, until you know what you feel good in. its all about what fits and FEELS good. you will find out what styles you enjoy wearing and it will go from there
    dont think a wardrobe update has to be an immediate thing!
    goodluck
