People assume that bloggers buy clothes everyday! and how I wish that I could! Unless you are a big blogger who gets fashion labels to sponsor your clothes, handbags and all; you inevitably have to do some closet shopping . And I’m no exception to that fact, although I’d love to work with sponsors and collaborate with fashion brands.
However, Shopping your own closet isn’t a bad thing because it gives you the opportunity to rediscover and restyle your clothes. This is the best way to stretch your creativity. And inevitably, you get to recreate a different look. How to restyle your clothes, you ask?
Well, you can create an entire look by putting different pieces together in a new way. For example, this entire look was created using pieces from my closet that you’ve already seen before but not put together exactly like in this look. I bought this Roksanda Ilincic top few years ago and wore only few times(see here and here) and I still love the fabric and the bow on this top. To restyle it, I pair it with my D&G skirt that I bought few months ago via Farfetch and added different accessories . And voila! So it only makes sense to get creative by restyling your wardrobe.
- Inject some new pieces or pair your oldies but goodies clothes with different accessories to recreate a new look.
- In case, you are not inspired to restyle your old clothes, you can always donate them to a local charity. I often do this for my own and my husband’s clothes as well as my kids clothes and toys. I also donate furniture and books that we don’t use anymore to orphanage.
- Another option it is to sell them and get some money toward your next purchase or simple toward savings.
Last but not least, keep your wardrobe updated: the risk of restyling too often is that your wardrobe can easily become outdated. So my advice is to restyle your wardrobe but make sure to keep it updated by adding few keys pieces every season.
