Program: What percentage of your wardrobe in your closet are you wearing? Currently we only wear 25% or less of our current wardrobe. There is a strategy in how you shop and what you shop for. Come and learn how to be stylish and SAVE money! Jennifer is a wardrobe stylist who edits, shops, and styles to help women, men, teens, pre-teens and the LGBT community. She received her bachelor?s degree in Fashion Design and Journalism at MU. Following over 15 years working as a typography artist at Hallmark Cards and then embracing Kauffman Foundation?s FastTrac program, Jennifer turned her love of fashion into a full-time career. She strives to keep Kansas City?s community looking effortlessly stylish all the time and to be wearing at least 75% of what?s in their wardrobe! First, we are going to interpret what it means ?To Build A (better) Wardrobe?. You can't just keep buying random pieces thinking someday, somehow, everything in your closet is going to magically make sense and outfits will just start coming together. There has to be a strategy in how you shop and what to shop for. Then you?ll see the value in spending money on your wardrobe which will, in the end, save you money.
