When I started this blog, I had an unspoken goal to utilize what I own and not spend a lot of money and I have done surprisingly well. I used to be notorious for growing tired of a piece and getting rid of it without a thought. When I go back through my archives, I love seeing that I still own most of the same clothes (investment pieces) from three years ago!
I realized I love to remix my closet and started to focus more on working with less. I’d take a small wardrobe with beautiful pieces over a large one of odds and ends.
Take this printed flutter sleeve blouse. The first time I wore it, I went for a business casual look. This time, it’s more off-duty with a pair of distressed jeans and my favorite anorak jacket. I also changed up the hair, lipstick, and accessories.
4 Tips for Remixing Your Outfits
- Swap out your lip color. You would be amazed how this simple change can maximize your look. If you’re not a lipstick wearer, try a sheer balm with a hint of color. Another awesome lipstick that is great for every day is this one by Bobbi Brown.
- Change your hair. Now, you can be as creative as you like with this, but I would err on side of simplicity. If you always wear your hair in a low ponytail, try wearing it up. Even adding a side or middle part can make a huge difference.
- Choose a different bottom. This is a great way to scale your wardrobe and is awesome when traveling. If you have a colored bottom, you can pair it with a printed or solid top and swap out the accessories and voila! You have an entirely new look. I do this all the time and it really does stretch my wardrobe.
- Change your shoes and accessories. This is a no brainer and makes getting dressed fun. Adding jewelry, a scarf, or bag can make a huge difference. If hats are more your thing, pick up a couple neutral options so you can mix and match with your wardrobe.
