Have you ever stood staring blankly at your wardrobe and thought ‘I have nothing to wear’ or ‘ I’m bored of wearing the same old thing over and over again’? Yep, you are not alone. I think we have all been there at some point in our lives. What do we do then when we get bored of our wardrobe? (don’t worry I’m not about to send you shopping). The solution sure isn’t to hit the shops and max out your credit card on clothes but to find new reasons to fall back in love with the clothes you already own. Here are a few tip to help you do just that…
I’m definitely guilty of getting in a clothes rut from time to time. I seem to wear the same outfits over and over again on rotation. To get myself out of the rut I love scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest. Sometimes all it takes is an image to inspire a new idea for an outfit using clothes i already own.
Get it Altered
I’m sure you have some great pieces that you don’t wear anymore because they are just not quite right or don’t fit very well anymore. Altering them (either yourself or sending it to a professional seamstress) is a much cheaper option than buying something new. Sometimes something as simple as altering a hemline can make all the difference.
Have fun with Accessories
The right accessories can totally transform an outfit. Mix up and be creative with the way you use a scarf, add a statement necklace to a plain outfit to instantly add interest and change the handbag you use frequently. You will be surprised with how much of a difference just charing a bag makes to the entire outfit. The same goes for shoes.
Wear your Favourite Pieces Differently
Don’t just rely on your usual outfit combinations, learn to experiment by trying on unlikely pairings and push yourself out of your fashion comfort zone. You might find a great look in the process. If you always wear your favourite top with a pair of jeans why not wear it with a nice skirt (I love midi pleated skirts) instead or culottes? Just have fun with it.
