Recycling your wardrobe...

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

recycling-your-wardrobeOrganising and paying for a wedding, buying an entire house worth of furniture & paying off a two week honeymoon to Mexico are all pricey things. As I've mentioned a few times now my disposable income has decreased dramatically. Buying new clothes is just not my main priority (as much as Id like it to be!) Recycling and renewing old items from my wardrobe to make them fresh again has become essential. So I thought id share a few of my tips with you guys... top-uk-lifestyle-blogThis denim shirt and leather skirt are two of my most featured items on my blog. I wear them all the time and never get sick of them because they are so versatile.
Tip #01 Pick an item that is classic and chic, a white shirt, a black skirt, a grey t-shirt. That kinda thing.
Tip #02 LAYER! A denim shirt for example can be layered under (like as shown above) almost used as a jacket, or layered over and buttoned up to the neck- like I did here.
Tip #03 Style depending on the season. A skirt, be it leather, cord or jersey can be worn all year round. You just need to know what to team it with. In summer team with bare legs and pumps (eg here) and in winter layer with knitwear and coloured tights. (eg here)

ombre-red-hair Tip #04 Accessories- you can refresh a tired old tee or shirt with a massive statement necklace or bright coloured scarf. Shirts can be changed by buttoning the top button and adding a ribbon or collar pins.(eg here)
Tip #05 The shape of a skirt can be updated and changed by what you wear on the top half. Tucking in a top or tying a shirt on the waist can create a slim line silhouette (eg here) Team with a slouchy long line jumper for a more casual dressed down shape (eg here.) Any item can be dressed down or dressed up.

  8. Great tips! I've recently had a wardrobe clear-out and last week did a blog post on Vinted & Depop, apps where you can easily sell and swap your unwanted clothes. Maybe check it out if you have stuff you really won't wear that you fancy making a bit of extra pocket money from! x

  9. These are great tips! I try to be more conscious of what I buy to make sure it can be worn more than one way, but sometimes I can't resist an awesomely bold print. I really love this outfit you put together here. The leather skirt looks fantastic on you!
