New Season, New You!
How to take your old wardrobe and make it new again:
How often do we look into our closet and see a never-ending array of options but still seem to have nothing to wear? Today’s fashion is all about mixing old with new and expensive with inexpensive. Here is a look at how to take common pieces and turn your “blah” wardrobe into some new popular looks for winter.
A Lunch Date:
Taking any loose fitting, plain top, throwing on a belt and a cropped blazer dresses up an outfit but keeps it casual, perfect for a lunch date. For days when bare legs are not weather permitted, try pairing the outfit with tights and a pair for high boots. A sweater in place of the blazer can keep the outfit casual and keep you warm on cooler days.
Girls Night Out:
For a casual night out with girls try a high-waisted skirt with a plain shit tucked in and a belt to accessorize. If it’s a chilly night add your own touch with neutral or coloured tights and a sweater or cropped jacket. Accessorize with a necklace, scarf or hat. Dress it up with heels or keep it cool and casual with boots.
A Walk in the Park:
The following outfit is perfect for a cooler afternoon and can be worn for a walk in the park or a day shopping with friends. A comfortable flowing top paired with basic leggings and a simple jean vest makes an easy casual look fashionable and creative. To easily accessorize and not over do your look try layering chain necklaces or throwing on a scarf.
Dinner & A Movie
The following outfit is perfect for a dinner date and comfortable enough to cozy up to your date in a movie theater. A basic tank tucked into a pair of dark skinny jeans with a sweater and jacket. Accessorize with a belt and necklace and keep warm with a hat and scarf. Keep it simple with a pair of comfortable boots for those cooler nights.
For a Sunday out with the family this flirty yet conservative look will keep you warm and fashionable without over doing it. To stay warm in the winter months wear a heavier material and pair the dress with thicker tights. Throw on a belt to create a narrower waistline and jazz up a simple dress. Wear a longer neutral sweater to keep warm and match it with a stylish hat or scarf and a pair of tall boots.
With a student budget, stretching your dollars can mean not having to choose a new outfit over a new textbook. Taking what you already have in your closet and creating new styles with the same classic pieces from last season you can keep your look fresh, easy and up-to-date, while keeping your money in your pocket.
