Even though the weather is cooler, don’t let that put a damper on your wardrobe. From a brief conversation with this Fashionista, I learned about a new way to update your wardrobe without spending a dime. For your next girls night, try throwing a clothes-swapping party and have everyone bring a few gently worn pieces of clothing. At that point, you can browse through the clothing and possibly bring home a few new pieces. Hopefully your best friend brought that shirt that you have been eyeing and begging to borrow.
Underneath this Fashionista’s brown peacoat lies her newly swapped sweater and skirt. The vertical striped skirt allows for streamline height and also is an appropriate length for this winter weather. The blue hue and the simplicity of her sweater kept her outfit from being too busy. Tights or leggings are a must-have item for this weather but, at the same time, try for a textured pair because it adds another interesting element to your ensemble.
Neutral colors, like gray, cream, and black, go with anything and if you are going to wear a graphic printed bottom it is key to keep it simple. Placing a simple belt along the waistline can always pull an outfit together. But, it is hard to find a unique belt that not everyone has. This Fashionista’s belt is native inspired and finishes off her eclectic style that inspires me to mix and match all of my pieces. For your own unique belts try LAVintage, which is an online vintage store that is updated constantly, so you can always be sure to find something.
Hint: For another low cost wardrobe update, try hitting up local vintage stores, rummage sales, flea markets, or even your local resale shop. I have found some of my favorite pieces from these places and you might be surprised at the undiscovered pieces available to you for only a few dollars.
