If you’re the type who loooves dressing up, there’s nothing worse than swinging your closet door open and finding out that you have nothing to wear. If that’s the case, then you may be stuck in a fashion rut. All you need to do is breathe new life into your basics by styling them differently. Here are four tips on how to re-wear your favorites.
1. Restyle a basic tee.
Everyone needs a basic tee in their closet. Instead of the regular blue jeans and white shirt pairing, switch it up by opting for black jeans and a denim-looking tee. It’s a fresher take on the casual staple, especially when worn with pointy mules, a matching sling purse, and a fierce cat eye.
2. Create a monochromatic look.
Spice up your favorite pair of jeans by wearing it with a denim top in the same wash. Monochrome (wearing separates of the same color) is one of the biggest trends this year, and head-to-toe denim is your easy entry into it. This is a casual look you can wear from day to night when paired with heeled mary janes and your trusty shoulder bag. As for your makeup? Nothing complements denim better than a fiery red lip.
3. Dress up your shirt dress.
Dresses are great for those lazy nothing-to-wear days. Comfy, versatile, and with minimum styling needed, a shirt dress is one of those pieces no-fuss girls can literally grab and go. For a change, pair it with heeled sandals and accessorize with layered necklaces and a sleek black sling bag to easily take it from an errand day look to one that’s OOTD-worthy.
4. Reinvent your office clothes.
Who says you can’t take that striped wrap dress you usually wear to meetings to a movie night with the fam? When worn with sneakers and a tan sling bag, the dress will instantly look casual and chic. Pair this daytime ensemble with a fresh face—just a dab of tinted lip balm on your puckers and a bit of mascara to open up your eyes.
