There’s always a time when we want to refresh our wardrobe. Maybe you’re tired of looking inside and finding nothing you can wear. Perhaps you’re someone who likes to overhaul your closet every few months to keep it looking fresh. Buying an entirely new wardrobe every season isn’t possible for most of us. The pandemic has shown just how little clothing we utilize, as we all get in the habit of outfit repeating in the world of Zoom calls. Most of us ignore at least half of the clothes in our closet.
Now is the perfect time to take a look into your closet and reassess what you have. We’re rounding up three ways to effortlessly refresh your wardrobe for any season.
It’s easy to get carried away and to fill up your online shopping cart with more clothing than you could ever wear. Nailing down your style aesthetic can help make it easier to decide which pieces you want to invest in and add to your closet. The next time you’re scrolling through Instagram, screenshot or save the outfits that you want to recreate. Bloggers like @brittanyxavier and @inthefrow can give you your daily dose of outfit inspiration.
After a little while, you’ll have a collection of photos that can act as a style board. Identify any overlapping pieces that keep appearing, and that’ll form the basis of your shopping list.
If you’re running out of closet space or on a budget, don’t underestimate the power of accessories. They are a versatile way to shake up an outfit and add a touch of your personality to your look. Whether it’s a vintage scarf, gold bangles, or oversized Jackie O inspired shades, there’s an accessory out there for everyone. If you’re looking to get the most wear out of your accessories, choose a neutral colour or something you can dress up or down.
You could wear a thin scarf in your hair as a headband for casual looks or style it as a bracelet during spring and summer. Jewellery is always the perfect place to start, especially if you want to invest into your closet with pieces that you’ll wear for years to come.
Sometimes we want to splurge on one piece every season that will refresh and rejuvenate our closet. A coat or jacket is something you can wear with any outfit (weather permitting!) and it can change up any look. Stick to versatile neutrals for a classic look, but don’t be afraid to experiment with a bold colour if you want to make a statement. Choose a style that reflects your aesthetic. There will be the perfect coat or jacket out there for you, whether you want to buy it new or vintage. You might even be able to rediscover a coat at the back of your closet that you forgot you even had. Refresh your wardrobe by choosing a coat you can wear every day.
Are you planning to refresh your wardrobe this season? What pieces are you searching for?
When the pandemic hit, most of us finally decided to get on TikTok. Since then, the app has rivaled Instagram for its ability to start a trend and make something go viral. It’s turned average people into celebrities and dominated the fashion industry by setting trends and canceling skinny jeans. We’re rounding up five of the biggest TikTok-inspired Fashion trends that you don’t want to miss out on.
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.
The first time you hear the phrase ‘Y2K’ it might stop you in your tracks. The name simply refers to the year 2000, focusing on the trends of the early 2000s up until 2010. Why are the trends back so soon? Usually, most fashion trends work on a twenty-year cycle as one generation grows up and sees the clothing style of the previous one. The Y2K trend has been made popular by Generation Z, who have come to love the trends they were too young to appreciate as children. There are Instagram accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, dedicated to posting y2k fashion inspiration.
Spring is blooming and it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a new handbag. After a harsh winter spent in lockdown, enduring socially distanced walks and being without our friends and family, it’s the least you deserve. Spring brings with it a myriad of bright shades that jump to the front of our closets. While we usually associate spring with pastels, this year’s spring handbag colours are focused on richer hues that make a bold statement where you go. These are the six handbag colours you should consider investing in for spring 2021.
