As yet another set of clothes is getting too big, I am contemplating a “transition wardrobe” and what items I should purchase for it. I still have another 30-40 lbs. that I’d like to lose, and I’d like to look presentable while I’m doing it.
Although it’s tempting, I don’t want to spend a lot on clothes that will be too big in a matter of weeks. I’ve been through that, and it is getting pricey. Instead, I’m looking for a few basic pieces that I can mix and match to get by. And luckily, my sister is also the next size down, so I can play in her closet, too.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
- Black pants
- Black skirt
- Dress (I’ve heard a wrap dress is a good transition piece)
- Suit and/or nice work dress
- Assorted tops
If you’ve had to deal with this, please tell me how you did it. Or even if you haven’t and have some suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
