A new chic way

Who doesn’t like finding a piece they can wear in different ways? Being able to instantly multiply your wardrobe with the right piece is a thing of great joy and i’m sure you know the feeling.

I always look for new ways to wear my clothes because i don’t know if you know this, but i don’t have a stash or tree of money hidden somewhere for all my shopping dreams. Also styling pieces in different ways is a challenge i love.

So
how have you been? yes i know, i left you hanging, apologies. I’ve come
to realize we all need a break, pausing doesn’t mean quitting.
Sometimes it’s better to take a step a back (or 100 steps, whatever you
need) re-evaluate and start making moves.
If you are getting choked up, under a lot of pressure it might just be time to take a breather.

Back to today’s look, remember this dress? yes it’s the same button down dress from this post, i just undid the buttons and tied the ropes around to give it a new look and wore it over the black dress from this post. I shot this same day i shot this look and to save time decided to skip the shoe lace and was quite pleased with it.  
Challenge yourself today to look for new ways to style your clothes 
You don’t need to do anything drastic, it can be as little as wearing your shirt under it like this post ; using a belt like this look or this look ; tucking it away to give an illusion in this and this or going as far as making some cuts as you see here.

It doesn’t take so much to switch up a look, a little tweak here and there may be all you need.

Any thoughts?
Any tips on how you get the most out of your wardrobe?

      Thanks dear. At all, just left it in for a month couldn't handle it again. My mum literally begged me to take it off. You need to share tips on how you handle it, cos you are doing a great job at it.

    I am probably on the list of bloggers that don't enjoy repeating outfits..my reason being that I make clothes and people usually buy my clothes off me and being a student..money is necessary.However,I enjoy re styling my outfits as long as I don't get bored with it.
    I love how wore your dress as a jacket…and I love the playful look of the photos.

    Love the prints on that dress and I love how you keep challenging yourself to style your clothes differently. I'm also a huge fan of re-rocking my outfits and styling them differently each time.

    Dress as a jacket, I've never tried this before, it adds a boyish charm to the floral dress, hope to try it soon. I agree with Toluwalade, re-rocking is the way forward now.

    I think I've upcycled and recycled clothes way too much in my life time and I don't see any signs of stopping. I love the way you wore yours.
