Solutions that with originality, good taste and quality wardrobe background can be put into practice.
Mix patterns and colors
A hallmark of current fashion is the break with the classical canons more widespread such as the unwritten prohibition to mix striped and checkered patterns in the same look or to combine colors that do not keep a balance. No more “matching”, understood as wearing everything in one main color and one secondary color. This is perfect to take advantage of with the wardrobe you have because it opens up many more alternatives. Of course, it is not worth doing it in any way. Find out well before the tips to apply these specific ideas well.
Timeless quality garments take more value than ever. The jeans that do not deform, the white shirt that still looks new despite having a laundry bag on its back, the beige chinos, the gray sweatshirt, the white cotton T-shirt, the denim shirt for casual days or the blazer Navy blue. There are infallible garments that only need one thing: that you put them on.
If you do not have seasonal clothes, nothing happens because you can wear the ones you have from previous years with a current style. For this, do not hesitate to dress in layers, including original details such as the double shirt in the absence of a shacket, for example. Never underestimate the art of layering.
Recycle clothes in new combinations
In line with the previous tip, a fantastic idea for dress up to date with clothes from previous seasons is to recycle it in style. For example, wearing your hiking boots now that it is still winter in urban looks. Or the ugly sandals that you bought a couple of seasons ago for summer, to wear them in spring with high socks. Even adding white sports socks to an avant-garde look with a black shoe is also a good idea, as is recovering the bucket hat or the scarf and wearing it in one of the ways in which it is worn now that it is back in fashion.
