Life x Style 045 (REUSE, RESTYLE REPURPOSE)
Sustainable style tip: Become a Mix & match master.
I do love to wear my items over and over, in many different ways, putting my creativity to the test and also making sustainable shopping for me.* The key to easy mixing and matching is to keep most pieces in neutral or muted tones, which are forever versatile.
There is ease in versatility.
You may have noticed that I featured this dress** a while back. I wanted to show a few extra renditions of it because even something rather specific like a boho maxi dress can be very versatile in neutral colors. And if you use your imagination, get creative and play around with what you got, the variations are endless.
Here are three simple ways to make one old dress new again just by changing up your top piece:
- Timeless denim jacket: Crossroads Trading Co.
- Extra long skinny necktie: Ready For Success (taken from a dress)
Although this dress has plenty of personality of its own, even the most basic pieces can be transformed in generous ways. Have fun with your accessories. Add personality with your favorite brights, patterns or metallics and you can make the most basic of basics exciting and unique.
And if you live in the Bay Area like me, have fun with your top layers, such as jackets, wraps, blazers and sweaters, because chances are good those afternoon breezes will come rolling in and you’ll be happy you did.
Wear what you love and wear what empowers you. Clothing can have a positive impact on you and the rest of the world. Every purchase is a vote. Make yours count.
Become part of the movement for a better world and a healthier more sustainable fashion industry by choosing clothing that you will love and wear for a very long time. I believe that together we can change the face of fashion.
*The items featured on this blog are what I consider sustainable fashion and/or are items I have owned for a very long time- which I would then consider a sustainable fashion choice simply for the longevity of it.
