I love your Chanel. You've got class and a fantastic sense of style. Now, I'm in my early 60's, but I find you've given me wonderful tips and am inspired by your pallet. I believe that You will be a classy lady for the rest of your life. Thank you for sharing your elegant sense of style and your knowledge. Deb
Great video. Good information. The only thing was that it was hard to see the styles you were talking about because it was not full length, just your chest to head so we couldn't see the styles. You have a great sense of style and helpful knowledge about laundering. It is a huge difference between overfilling a washing machine to just washing a few pieces at a time. When you invest in a nice coat it is cheaper to dry clean it than to buy a new piece the next year.

I rarely wash any wool clothes, my grandma told me not to, instead I hang them outside on my balcony for a night and let them air out. Same with anything that will show wear when washed, if it's made of quality fabric it will become fresh again from being aired out. Exception of course hats, gloves and socks.
I just started purchasing investment pieces this year so I'm not really sure if I made good investments yet (hopefully yes!), but I was just going through my closet and found some surprising finds like your asos skirt. About 10 years ago I have bought these 2 black dresses, one is more of a summer dress, the other is a more formal style of a black dress, I have been wearing them very often, mainly the summer one because I do not attend that many formal events, but they are both looking amazing and fit me great even today. The only thing is some mini stud applications on the summer dress are chipping the color tiny bit but that's a super easy fix for me. However, it's an amazing success for brands that would now be considered fast fashion and especially for the fact that I bought the dresses on sale for about 5 poudns each. :)

Hun... I'm always huge on rehabilitation of bags and shoes, got quite some tricks of my own, which I practice every 6months pre "shopping from my own wardrobe" when the season changes.
Maintenance is crucial post wise/clever shopping. Stay thoughtful as you already are.
How many of you are sick of seeing women running around in public with yoga pants on? In Arizona I see many women dressed in workout clothes. It's so refreshing to see women dressed in a pretty sundress or feminine skirts.
Great tips! I like taking out clothes which I haven’t worn for a long time and try them on. It helps me to remember why I liked it so much and start wearing again or removing it from my wardrobe making some space. I need to take your example about investing in better quality clothes. I usually don’t buy super trendy pieces so it’s worth investing in something that I will be wearing for years.
Great tips and tricks! I have a black leather jacket from Clavin Klein that I bought in 2012 and I still reach for it year after year. I also bought a pair of Jimmy Choo heels with pink crystals on them (which cost me an arm and a leg :) but I love them) that I know I'm going to go back to year after year. They are only a little over a year old, but I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of them. I wear heels to work (not a requirement, I just like to) so I have them in my "rotation" of heels I wear although I only wear them when I know there is no chance of rain or snow or anything that might damage them :) My main heels that I wear to work are a pair of leather cream colored kitten heels that I got probably 5 years ago and I wear them so much that I've had to get replacement rubber heel tips about 5 or 6 times, unfortunately they are starting to look very worn out though, for obvious reasons, and I want to invest in another pair of shoes similar to them, but I haven't been able to find anything similar to them that I like. Please let me know if you've seen anything that you think would be similar.
Love all these tips ...It's so true even if yours clothes are Primark ...and nothing wrong with Primark by the way....keeping them fresh and clean and cared for is def. the key....sometimes I also have swop parties with friends so even if the item is an old piece feels new to someone else!!!x Love your videos u are so inspirational x
I can’t wait for the video on how to take care of your own stuff. Can you do a dummy version? Haha I’ve only just started investing in classic pieces (better late than never) and desperately need some tips (:
How do you style older clothes in an age appropriate way given you were much younger when purchased and perhaps wish to dress more discreetly now, or more classically than when you originally bought something like a short skirt for example? In other words investing in quality items that last for years but which you might tweak to suit your style as you mature.
Wonderful video with great tips! Quality basics are key and taking good care (proper cleaning and mending) of your wardrobe is probably one of the best tips for always looking put together. I'll also add in, making sure the fit is correct for your body shape is another essential for always looking your best. (A good seamstress/tailor is your best friend to customize a perfect fit!!)
My best tip for "shopping your own wardrobe" is to hang all like items together. My dressing room is color coordinated within each category... trousers, skirts, tops, dresses, jackets. I arrange them from short to long (sleeves or length) and from printed to solid within each color category. This way when you're picking out an outfit using the trousers or skirt you bought with a coordinating jacket, because they aren't hanging together, you are more apt to peruse all your jackets as options with that particular trouser or skirt. Regardless if a scarf, bag or a pair of shoes is the inspiration of the day, the selection process is made easier due to the color order, and easy to find items appropriate for any given day's weather forecast.
I'm very fond of the music choices in your videos. Could you mention them in the description box now and then? There is a girl singer that I especially like (not featured in this video). A sweet yet sultry voice and I wonder so who it is.
This was the first video from you I didn't like. Buying more expensive pieces have nothing to do with making old clothes look new. It's a completely different thing. Wear old pieces with new ones are a good tip but otherwise this gave ne nothing....
If you by quality pieces (generally that translates to expensive, but that doesn’t have to mean $1000, can mean $150) means you’ll still have it 5,10,15 years from now, and therefore you will HAVE an old piece to work with to make look new. That’s her point, you won’t have old staple pieces to work with if you only buy cheap ones that only last a couple seasons to a year. The Zara’s and similar sell unlined skirts for ridiculous prices...meanwhile I could find a Calvin Klein one, lined and well constructed for just a little more (or less if on sale) and have a lot longer. Just using as an example.
Amazing - such useful tips! I love the idea of having a day to try on your clothes that have been tucked away for a while - to fall in love again with old pieces but to also use it as a way to give away pieces that are never worn and simply taking up space! I always reach for my high waisted jean shorts in the summer- the more you wear them, the more worn in they are and the better they look! 👌🏻
Hello, Josie. Thanks for sharing these great tips. Only perhaps you can help further for people who live in tropical countries? Like I do, I found it is bit unnecessary to divide my clothes into two seasons because all year long I wear either dresses or simple combination of blouses and pants/skirts (not so much different between dry and wet seasons here in Bali) I don't think having plenty of clothes or buying clothes frequently will be a smart idea to sustain my clothes quality. If anyone read this and would share your thoughts, please do. Thanking you in advance. :)
I think that it is a rare case that you have clothing for a decade or longer and really wear them. Most of the things we holding back and looking after instaed of wearing them because we have to much. I think it's better to really choose what you need und wear that daily. You never know how your lifestyle and size will change and if you will need new clothes for a new situation. 🤗
Hi Josie, brilliant video thank you! Do you or anyone else have any tips on just doing a spot clean on a cashmere coat? I have an extremely expensive camel cashmere coat - It’s only a few months old and still looks clean except for one minuscule little spot of splashed wine 😣. I’m not sure about taking it to the dry cleaners yet in case they ruin it. What do you think?
Such an incredibly good video✨ These tips were actually useable.. and relatable, if that makes sense. Shopping & trying-on one's own wardrobe, pride of ownership by taking care of one's clothes, changing it up with a scarf or a pair of scissors, yess, that's why that one has it going on with their look.💁👘🌼
I think you could promote your own ideas without making fun of others. They (DIYs at the beginning) posted their videos with the same hope they would be well received and be helpful to others as you do yours. We should all support each other, even if our ideas are different.
I tend to listen to these videos with the attitude they are only suggestions and opinions and we are all allowed to have them. But i tend to keep away from the ones that put others down they grate on me. X
This would work great for anyone who has maintained their weight/physique over the years! I have ranged from size 0 to a size 14 in this past 5 years sadly and I wish I stayed the same size to be able to invest in classic pieces. Great video as usual! <3
I enjoy your videos to see new styles and trends, but really love this video along more minimalist lines. It's nice to see realistic alternatives to fast fashion. A good piece of clothing can last a lifetime and classic styles are always on trend.
Loved this video... this is all so true. I’m older than you Josie but I always have bought higher quality on classic pieces. I literally still wear clothing from 15+years ago! I have a classic black blazer I bought literally 25years ago😱at least. This was my first purchase that I bought on my own and spent 300.00.Which that was a lot 25 years ago. I still have it and wear it. If you keep the style classic it never goes out, especially on a item like a blazer. I bought my Burberry scarf 20 years ago and they sale the same scarf today and the price has only gone up since I bought mine. One thing I am mad at myself is I have gotten rid of many things because they went out of style and I of coarse thought I would never ever wear it again. This is giving away my age but I grew up in the 80’s. I had tons of Ralph Lauren, Izod, Guess clothing . That was my wardrobe in high school . I could kick myself for getting rid of all my guess jean jackets!Who would have thought they would be back. I also had a 2 Gucci purses & wallet in high school. I didn’t know or understand vintage on pieces like that. I got rid of them. I would kill to have the right now. I have alway taken very good care of my clothes. Of coarse I learned from my mom and helping her with the laundry growing up. We ban 🚫 the dryer. People laugh at me but my family’s clothes last a lifetime and always look brand new and in wrinkled. Only thing that gets fully dried in the drier is towels, some of my boys sock(one for sports and everyday basic socks) some of the boys underwear. That’s about it. I really really divide my loads. Socks & underwear load, jeans load (which don’t get washed until several wearing if nothing has got on them), My boys T shirt load, My shirt load, towel load, sheet load, My intimates load, Whites are even broken down to just white socks & underwear load, just white jean load, just white T-shirt load,. etc. It make a huge difference plus the different fabrics. You dont want something rough like a jean rubbing on a shirt. It will rough up the fabric faster than wearing it! Also friction causes fading! Now the dryer! Kills fabric the fastest! Wears it out, fades it, changes its shape etc. It may take me a long time to do laundry but when you spend good money on your clothes and you want your clothes to look prestige and fashionable....having them look like new, no wrinkles, hang properly it’s well worth it. So besides the few things I said gets dried in the dryer, everything else gets put in the dryer for only a couple minutes just to fluff & steam them for a bit and then they are laid out or hung. A lot of things will get marks being hung on a hanger wet. I’ve been very fortunate that every home I’ve lived in has been 2 stories and we’ve had a long banister section up stairs so I will use it to lay clothing on. You can take your T-shirt’s and smooth out all the seams , neck , sleeves etc. and they will dry looking brand new. Button down shirts the same. Lay it on a table, bed, banister (like me) Button it all up straightening it really straight & smooth, take the time to straighten the collar real well, the sleeve etc. I do the same for jeans and all pants & shorts. I take them upside down by the pant leg and match up all the seams so then when I hang them to dry they are creased like I ironed them. Not only do they look nice but they’ will look nice for many years because I’m preserving the fabric. All delicates get washed by themselves on gentle and then I lay them out on top of the washer, dryer or a table tp dry. Even nice socks!Sweatshirts I don’t even dry all the way. I may fluff them a little longer because they absorb more water but I will lay it over the banister or I will take the hood if it has one and hang the hood over one of the pillars of the stairs. The more air that can get around it the faster it will dry. Sweatshirts can be hung on hangers too. They don’t gets marks easily like a T-shirt. Same wilts pants. You can hang them over a hanger the way I said I match up the seams. I also forgot to mention if you have different settings on your washing machine...use perm. press on things like T-shirt’s, button down shirts, cottons that wrinkle. This has a slower spin at the end of the washing cycle so your clothes don’t get spun so hard which creates more wrinkling. Then of coarse gentle/delicate on delicate items and things that you don’t want pulled on. The fast spin can damage some fabrics. I really could go on and on with doing laundry. I really take pride in washing my families clothing and it definitely shows. My kids clothing never looks worn out. I’ve even taught them that you don’t have to wash everything after one wearing. If you just had it on a few hours, you didn’t sweat, nothing got on it hang it back up. Washing too much wears out your clothing. If you have a shirt on that doesn’t need to be washed you can just spritz it with some water to smooth out the wrinkles or use a steamer. I don’t use a steamer a whole lot. For me getting it out, steaming and them putting it back away....it’s just quicker for me to use my sprayer that sprays a real fine mist and then hang it over my banister and when dries put it in the closet. I only use the steamer if it’s something I need to wear right now. As far as whites using bleach all the time will actually yellow your clothes and it ruins the fabric. You really shouldn’t use bleach at all. I only use it on my white towels maybe every 3 washing. On my white clothing I use oxy whites. For stains I use a product called Folex. It was actually made for carpet and upholstery stains. It’s very gentle and it doesn’t even need t be rinsed out. I still do but I will put on a spot to get it out of the fabric and then wash the item when I’m doing that load. Both my boys play baseball and all the moms ask me how are my boys pants so white. Folex!! It takes out everything. You can usually find it in with the cleaning supplies at the store or market. One more tip, if you live somewhere where you have hard water. Which I do. I will add a little vinegar where you would put fabric softener and it will help neutralize the water. I do it on my towels. It helps them be softer. Don’t use fabric soften. It ruins towels. They won’t absorb properly. I actually don’t use fabric softener on anything. It just coats your clothing and after using it repeatedly the coating builds up and then the coating yellows your clothing! Then the dryer even makes it worse because the heats enhances the yellowing...it’s basically baking that coating on your clothes. Fabric softener😝Then I also use the dry cleaners on really nice items. Specially on things that don’t get washed a lot. Coats, blazers, fancy dresses, suits. These items just loose their shape and the fabric texture will change if you wash it. Okay I need to stop. This is way too long. Hopefully I helped someone. I have a lot more but I can’t take up anymore space. Good luck doing laundry😘
Fab info Josie, you always talk lots of common sense! And love your style! I bought a really inexpensive dark gold long full skirt about 10 years ago. It cost something like £30, but it looks so expensive and every time I wear it someone always says if ever I get sick of it pass it their way! I think if you go for classics you can wear them for years and always look elegant! Great vid, thank you 😊 x
I have a lamb skin brown leather jacket I bought in early 2004. It’s just as beautiful today as it was the day I bought it. Your video has inspired me to find new ways to style it. I typically wear it a few times a year. I really should wear it more as it was an investment piece.
Found you just a couple of days ago when I searched for #Royalascot on Instagram and when I saw your photo I just thought your outfit was so incredibly gorgeous that I had to start following you. Btw, loved the scarf-hack. I never thought about that before!
Do you work with Philips still, Josie? I live in Canada and would LOVE to buy the steamer. It has the best reviews, but the plug/outlets in North America are different than the UK and Europe. I will happily pay the shipping if they make ones that work here!!!
I had been looking for a good clothes steamer for months. As soon as I saw your recommendation with discount code on your insta stories I bought the Philips steamer! Looking forward to it’s arrival to go to town on my favourite items! Thank you very much!
I felt the same when I watched this. Next time Josie, just go straight in with your own spin on the subject...everyone will figure out what it's not as they watch. Focus more on inspiring, educating and informing what you do love and leave what you don't love out of it.
Eeek I'm so excited for your video on how you care for your clothes! I have been buying a lot more whites lately but am always so sad when they start to go grey. (My partner doesn't separate whites and darks when he puts them in the wash, it kills me. I did actually start hiding my best clothes from him!) In that video, please please could you show us how to take up hems? I know it's probably so easy for most people but I have never used a sewing machine in my life and wouldn't have a clue what to do!
It would be nice to do a Video about how you take care of your clothes. How you keep whites so bright, how you avoid mistakes in the washing machine, which items you take for dry cleaning, how you don't get any stains on your clothes etc etc💕💕
Josie you did a great job explaining the way to build a classic versatile wardrobe core. I'm older 62- and follow your channel due to your sharp eye for trends & neutrals. For years now I divide my spending and put the biggest portion towards what is sometimes called the "CBS". Coat, bag & shoes. It keeps me in mind of the essential facts of life that what people see first and most builds that first and often lasting impression. The next portion of my spending "pie" is the boring basics that I can't get dressed without. Then quality accessories like jewelry and scarves and last of all are the trend bits in colour and patterns that tend to date fast.
Having a good relationship with others.
