If you’ve realised that some of the outfits in your wardrobe look a little sad and unloved, it’s time to breathe some new life into them. The key to this process is styling, which allows you to dress down and get much more use out of the staple clothes in your wardrobe that you often overlook. Not only is the process of breathing new life into old clothes good for your purse (and the environment), but it’s also a lot of fun! Below, we introduce some top tips on how to showcase your unique style this season while bringing some of your old clothes and accessories back with a bang.
We’ve all got at least one gorgeous dress hanging in the wardrobe that we’ve had on only once. While you might think that the right occasion hasn’t yet arrived to don it once more, dressing down with a chunky knit and some chic boots is a great way to get it off the hanger. You will be amazed at how choosing the right accessories can add a completely new dimension to a dress or outfit and see you rocking a style you didn’t think possible.
Picking the right jacket will revolutionise the entire vibe of any outfit. Denim is perfect for casual, informal outings while slipping a blazer over your cute dress adds a whole new level of sophistication to your look. No matter the season, rocking a stunning jacket over an underused dress is an awesome way to mix things up and get the most out of your wardrobe.
One of the easiest ways to transform your look is to pair any dress that you have with a pair of clean white trainers. It’s amazing how a gorgeous mini dress can be perfect for a shopping trip with the girls in one instance, only to be ready for a night out on the town after a quick pair of shoes. Don’t underestimate the power of accessorising with the right shoes!
Two for one
Arguably the most adaptable item in your wardrobe is that maxi shirt dress that you can’t get enough of. Perfect for a day at the office or after-dinner drinks, it can be used for so many occasions. You can even unbutton it all the way down and rock it like a long-line kimono. When the cooler nights return, you can layer a maxi shirt dress with a jumper, providing you with the very best of both worlds.
Whether you’re trying to breathe new life into a stunning evening dress that you haven’t worn in ages or are keen to get creative with your current wardrobe, the above tips will help you recreate yourself and look the part this season.
