Below are some of my suggestions on how to give new life to some of your old pieces.
Look at your pieces with a different perspective. How can you style it to fit in with this year’s trends? Perhaps you will pair your denim dress with an on-trend bamboo handbag and cat-eye sunglasses. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Try pairing pants with various bottoms, maybe you purchased a blouse to work with a certain pair of pants in 2016, but for 2018 the blouse looks better tucked into a midi skirt.
Layering is key. That button down blouse would look great with the collar out under a sweater. That denim shirt would look great with a best. That white tank would look great under a blazer. Make another layer the focal point of the outfit and see how it re-vamps the piece you haven’t worn in ages.
If you can’t style it or layer it differently, consider altering it! Turn your jeans into shorts, your maxi dress into a midi dress, your jacket into a vest. And voila, you have a brand new piece! There are a ton of DIY videos to help you, or you can take the piece to your local tailor.
