Refresh and renew your basics. A lot of us with smaller wardrobes face the dreaded (first world) problem of wardrobe boredom. We mix and match, and add scarves or jewelry to make old looks more fun. Do more with less, as the fashion gurus advise.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
Today I’m sharing a couple of wardrobe tips to refresh what’s already in our closets. It’s not that we’ve given up shopping for good! Just slowing down to enjoy what we’ve got.
Refresh Tip #1: experiment with any blouse or top worn backwards. This doesn’t always work – see Celine Dion‘s famous reverse tuxedo from 1999 – but it does work for a surprising number of tops and tees. My Vetta wrap blouse has a new, edgier look worn backwards.
Refresh Tip #2: swap out your “usual” footwear for something totally casual or dressy, depending on your mood. I usually wear these We The Free high-rise jeans (rented from Nuuly, go check them out) with red or white sneakers. The jeans have a more sophisticated look today with these 2″ suede wedges.
