Summer is here in full swing. That means it’s time for a wardrobe makeover. It’s time to push those woolen shawls and cardigans to the side and bring out the lighter elements of your wardrobe.
But if the closet is already overflowing with clothes.
The secret is to reinvent a style- with the clothes you already have.
If you’re wondering how to pull this off, you’ve come to the right place. I know you’re on a tight budget, so I’ve got some great ideas on how you can use the items already in your closet and revamp your look.
In this blog, I’ll be using fashion staples that every woman has in their closet. With just a few trendy adjustments to your attire, you’ll be able to create a new look that will make heads turn.
But before you can work your wardrobe magic, you’ll need to organize your closet. This will help you find different pieces of clothing so that they can be mixed, matched, and paired with the clothes you already have to create entirely new looks. So once you’ve cleaned and organized your closet, you’re all set to begin this mission.
Ready to get started?
1. The white shirt
A white shirt is the ultimate multi-functional piece of clothing everyone needs to own.
Whether you have a cotton shirt or a silk one, you can transform your look in minutes for a casual setting, paired with your favorite jeans and comfortable sneakers.
Or opt for a pair of black sleek tailored trousers if you’re getting ready for a meeting at the office.
And don’t forget to finish off your effortlessly chic look with the red heels hiding in the corner of your closet!
2. The little black dress
Every woman knows how vital it is to have that timeless black dress in their wardrobe.
As one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe, they can be dressed up or down to suit various occasions. All you need is some accessories to create a new look every time. And the best part is, your little black dress can be an affordable number from any store.
Take your black dress to the next level by adding a blazer and some classic jewelry.
Or wear a pretty blouse on top of the dress, grab that stylish clutch, and slip into coordinating sandals to feel an incredibly different vibe.
And if all else fails, pull that elegant silk scarf off the hanger and drape it over your shoulders.
3. The leather jacket
A leather jacket is an investment you will never regret. Whether you have one of those unique purple leather jackets or the timeless black one, a leather jacket is something you can wear over and over again, no matter what the season or occasion.
Team your favorite leather jacket with jeans and a T-shirt for a day out with your friends. Or throw one over your favorite summer dress to create a classy look.
But if you really want to revamp your outfit, opt for leather boots to complete the whole ‘leather’ vibe.
4. The perfect jeans
Denim jeans are a classic wardrobe staple, no matter your style, size, or personality. And they’re SO casual. Topped with any t-shirt, hoodie, or sweatshirt, you can just go about anywhere in your jeans.
But did you know that you can easily revamp your denim into something a bit more formal? All that’s needed is the right combination of clothing items to create a flattering style for your body shape. Here’s how.
Buttoned-up peplum tops and jeans can become the perfect summer outfit. But if you want to make it a little fancier, how about donning a chiffon ruffle hem romper? It’s the ideal way to turn your casual denim into a formal affair.
So whether you own a pair of indigo or black wash jeans, it’s time to design a smarter look.
5. The long maxi dress
Summer is all about looking fresh and comfortable. Wearing lightweight, airy clothes are the ideal way to do that. The last thing you want is to get sweat-laden in clothes that make you feel uncomfortable all day.
So if you’re looking for something in your closet to help you enjoy the summer season, a maxi dress is one piece of clothing that you must wear. However, make sure that the fabric wicks the moisture away from your body to keep you cool during the day. Cotton or linen are the ones that you should be looking at.
Revamping your maxi dress is going to be a lot easier than you think. Simply pair it off with anything and everything you have – chunky jewelry, slim leather belt, crossbody bag, straw hat, or leather boots.
Just remember, balance is the key to a perfect look. You don’t want to look like a walking wardrobe, now do you?
Last piece of fashion advise
In the hot, sunny weather, it’s better to select clothes that are easy to wear. But, more importantly, you want to keep the air circulating around your body. So instead of choosing tight garments, opt for airy and flowy outfits.
Use your wardrobe staples to create a fresh new look. Pair your outfit with the right accessories to give it an edge. They’re sure to take your simple summer look up a notch and give it a more stylish spin.
And lastly, don’t be afraid to try vibrant prints this summer. Add some color to your summer style and show everyone your fun personality.
Over to you
Spring, summer, autumn, winter. The seasons come and go.
Your wardrobe needs to be versatile for every one of them. On top of that, you’ve got to look your very best, day in and day out.
It’s time to restyle the way you dress and make your outfit a winner every day! And that too without breaking the bank.
It’s all about using what you have to create a stunning new look. I hope this blog has helped all those who have a closet full of clothes and just can’t seem to pick out the perfect outfit.
