How To Recycle Your Look with Accessories

Have you ever thought to yourself… I have this same dress (top or bottom) and I want to wear it again but I need my “look” to feel different. Well, no more wishing for you! Below I’ll take you through another series of how to change your look with styling. Let’s talk about the dress first, I purchased it at a secondhand shop. The beauty of this particular dress is that you can dress it up or down depending on what you have in your own closet. Make sure to keep that in mind when purchasing your items, this makes it easier to create a sustainable wardrobe.

Now for my first look…

Look 1

The “Pretty” Look

This look is “dressed up.” Since we have a few more days of Summer left I used a brown wedge, shimmer belt, and upcycled this purse I found at a thrift store by adding poms. I made sure to use a light colored choker as well as sunglasses for a playful vibe.

Look 2

The “Edgy” Look

 

So this look is using the same dress but I added a fanny pack, switched my wedges for trainers, added a cap and changed my light pink choker to a black one. I also switched out my sunglasses for a darker pair. The switch with accessories gives the power of a “comfortable” vibe with a bit of edge.

 

It’s possible to use the same dress or fashion item of your choice and be able to create several different looks with it. Look through your closet and lay out your clothes and accessories. By visually seeing what you have together (at the same time) you can start creating outfits with them. This also helps you see what you frequently wear and sift through what you don’t. Let me know what you think of these outfits or if you want to know how to style particular items, I would love to hear from you all.
