Rework Your Wardrobe: Create New Looks With Clothes You Already Own

Ever feel like you’re in a wardrobe rut? Approaching your old clothes with a fresh outlook can make you feel like you’ve got a massive wardrobe. Take the time to assess what’s in your closet and discover new ways to rework your wardrobe. When you create new looks with clothes you already own it’s a win-win situation any way you look at it.

Take this Queen of the #Freehive (see what I did there?) look I’m wearing here. I promise, everything I am wearing — with the exception of the sweater — is at least over a year old.

At the first of the year, I made a commitment to shop my closet for hidden (mostly buried) treasures and make them new  again. While purging my closet recently for yet another closet sale, I came across this fabulous skirt. It’s from the Victoria Beckham x Target capsule collection from two years ago. I had never worn it because finding a proper top to compliment this amazing piece seemed to elude me.

That was until I saw this sweater in the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collection at Nordstrom. Perfect match! My shoes are more than 4 years old and I’ve had the incredibly cute clutch for about as long. The Gucci belt was an impulse purchase in 2016 that I’m glad I made because it will never go out of style.

Who knew this amazing look had been in my closet for years, and I wonder what other gems I can find in mine. I bet there are some ensembles in your own closets you haven’t thought about. Don’t be weary of your wardrobe. Rework your wardrobe ladies! If you take the time to reorganize and purge your closet, I’m sure you will find lots of new looks among the pieces you already own. Go have some fun being your own bomb stylist!

    Great outfit ! Yellow jacket makes the outfit more attractive. You look so pretty in this outfit. I will definitely try this outfit with the body jewelry. In these days, online shopping is a huge trend and thus surfing great websites like fresh trends. I have been shopping body jewelry from Freshtrends for many years and thanks to them for amazing designs and trending collection.
