I think there's a lot of pressure on fashion bloggers to have the newest clothes...and sometimes the most expensive trending pieces. For me I'm not the girl to go out and buy the Chloe Drew Bag or not re-wear or re-photograph certain items. For me fashion is all about having items in your closet that you can re-wear and re-work. Here on FNYG you'll see jeans (like these Forever21 jeans) reworn, sweaters worn to death, and shoes on repeat. It's all about switching up accessories and knowing how to rework a look.
Jacket: William Rast | Sweater: H&M | Jeans: Forever21 | Shoes: Zara | Bag: Coach | Hat: Urban Outfitters |
Sunglasses: Call It Spring
Use accessories to help restyle an old piece. I've had this H&M sweater (similar style here) for years but worn with a bandana it gives a whole new feel, especially as bandanas are back in style (and are cheap to buy). Hats and sunglasses are my weakness, but simple little pieces can make a difference in a whole look. Buy classic prints. Stripes and polka dots will never go out of style. Sweaters and shirts in these prints can be worn multiple ways. Pair with a pair of ripped jeans for a downtown cool girl look, or mix prints with a different printed skirt. Sometimes a handbag that is simple and neutral is best. We all want the statement piece but sometimes the best bags are ones that can go with any look. I love my little Coach bag that I've had for sometime now, as it can easily be thrown into rotation and mixed with my looks.
How do you make old pieces new again?
