New Year, not-so-new Style | Put a Fresh Spin on Your Existing Wardrobe
Not in a place to plan for a revamped closet for the new year? No problem. It’s a lot easier than you might think to give old pieces new life.
The look of piece can completely change based on how it’s styled. Take your go-to denim, like the Barfly Slim in Stateside, and experiment. Normally go for a looser fit? Try tucking in your button-down for a slightly elevated (but still casual) ensemble.
Fit is one of the most important elements of style. Pair this look with a simple and classic belt for a more sophisticated spin, like this one from John Varvatos, available at Nordstrom.
Finally, remember that shoes tie a look together and consider how different pairs shift the overall look. A staple pair of Leather Boots, as mentioned in our Minimalist Closet blog are perfect for day to day while Oxfords (like those at Cole Haan) make for a great polished look.
Accessories might seem trivial at times, but never underestimate the affect great accents can have on an outfit. Pair your favorite jacket with a complimentary scarf to elevate the outerwear piece, like this scarf from Back Country.
Take January as an introduction to the rest of the year. Use the rest of the month to sort out kinks of your resolution plans, while thinking about how your style can transform this year - without having to make any too drastic changes.
