Wearing the same things over and over again can be a good thing! When I post “trendy” outfits, I don’t want to be under the impression that my readers should go out and purchase a bunch of crap that they’ll only wear once, or crap that some blogger told them they “need” in order to be stylish. That is not my intention. My intention is to illustrate the many ways people can style the wardrobe that they already have, and maybe getting creative when it comes to finding a variety of ways to wear the same blouse, or pair of jeans, or anything, really.
I came across this documentary on Netflix about fast fashion called The True Cost, and it changed me, or at least, gave me perspective. Don’t get me wrong, I’m into Fashion and I think it’s fun to style outfits, or find a new way to wear something ordinary, but I’m more aware of how I shop, the designer I choose to shop from, and where my clothes are being made, how it’s made, the impact on the environment etc. Now, rather than buying things for the sake of buying, I look through my closet to see what I already have, I donate my clothes or resell to consignment/thrift stores, and I check second used stores for items I may want instead of buying them new. If I decide to buy them new, I am much more thoughtful about my purchase. In the end, I found that I am saving money, less cluttered, need and want less and have quality items over a large quantity of clothes I’ve only worn a handful of times.
Here is a minimalist outfit that I wore yesterday. Hope this gives you inspiration to reuse that oversized collared shirt in your closet, or whatever else it is you decide to wear everyday. My minimalist wardrobe staple? v necks, a good pair of jeans, sneakers and a chelsea boot, and the ability to re-wear these things over and over again. 🙂
