The summer is almost here, and that means that most people will be scrambling to update their wardrobe. To the average person, splashing the cash is the only way to look and feel great when the mercury starts to rise. In a way, they are right because old autumn and winter outfits just don’t cut the mustard. However, there is no need to break the bank and buy a plethora of outfits. Although it sounds improbable, it is possible to be minimal and stylish at the same time. If you’re interested, here are the tips that will make it happen.
Get Creative With What You Have
Before you unsheathe your credit card and hit the online stores, you should take a good look at your current wardrobe. Now, you might only see a handful of items that don’t inspire you to get out of the house, but that’s because you lack creativity. Simply put, any outfit is transformable if you have the energy and patience to crack the code. With that in mind, take stock of the clothes that are still wearable. Then, think about adding a handful of items that will form to create a passable outfit. Sometimes, less is more.
Once you have added a couple of new pieces, you can still go further. Yep, all you have to do is invest in accessories. Accessories are a minimalist’s best friend because they instantly add freshness to any style. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing clothes or new ones as the right trimmings make everything pop. And, the even better news is that they do it without going overboard. For example, a big necklace or large earrings act as a focal point that renovates an outfit in one foul swoop. Rings and bracelets also have the same effect.
Buy Flexible Clothes
In this sense, flexible doesn’t mean that they are loose and have no give. No, it means that the clothes go with almost every item in your wardrobe. That way, you can create multiple outfits without buying a trolley full of items on the high street. During the summer, this tactic tends to be harder than the colder months, but it’s still possible. Your first port of call is a sundress. Every style from Florida style sundresses to conventional ones are easy to pair and accessorise. After that, think about a white t-shirt or tank top, and a flexible jacket. These are only three things, yet you can mix and match to create a variety of styles.
Cut Them Down
Wait a minute! Don’t throw those away! Sure, they might not look the part anymore, but that is only in their current form. With a bit of redressing, the items you no longer like with change into something completely different. A great example is an old t-shirt. Tatty and tired it might be, but it won’t when you cut off the arms. When you do that, it turns into a brand tank top, and a cool one to boot.
Whoever said that bigger was always better?!
