Is there anything more satisfying than stumbling across an outfit, that’s been throw to the back of your wardrobe? This happened to me the other day and I am totally going to wear the outfit again soon.
I have to admit, I used to be a fast fashion sort of girl, but now I tend to make sure I have my wardrobe classic in place and then I add some new trends as they come and go. This is why I now take a look in my wardrobe to see what old styles are still lurking in there and if i’d wear it again. The answer is more than likely going to be, yes. To remind myself how I used to style certain pieces, I visited my instagram and facebook to check out some old pictures of me and friends on nights out. This reminded me of how amazing these forgotten styles can look.
Seeing how you made an outfit instead of just finding an old style in your wardrobe can determine whether you wear the style again of you throw it back in the wardrobe for another season at least. If i could recommend anything, it would be to make sure you get a quick snap of your outfit before you go out (I mean what girl doesn’t love a good selfie before they go out anyway) so you can refer back to it at a later date.
This exercise has not only allowed me to find one old outfit but it helped me find a few. To summarise, don’t just run out and grab something new without looking what you’ve already got. Use old images to help you assemble an outfit from old clothes or add a few new pieces to elevate and old style to the new heights.
