Are You An Outfit Repeater???

10 days ago

The answer is YOU SHOULD BE! We all love new pieces that we pick up but then can often feel like you can't truly enjoy them and wear them over and over, which is madness really if you think about it! Today, it's all about my top tips for outfit repeating, a lot for inspo and a little for fun ; )

Now.... You guys know I'm all about a blazer. But don't think you're blazer has to pair with only one look. Even if it's a bit out there, like this Amanda Uprichard plaid one (which is amazing BTW), you can still mix it up and make it look really different.

One of my fave looks, pair your plaid blazer with leather mini or pants, a graphic tee and heels and you're good to go.
This look is sexy, chic and gives the blazer a really cool edge.

This is smart-casual 101. With just the jeans and top, it's ultra casual but the plaid blazer and boots brings it up a notch or two in the style stakes. Plus, pairing the plaid with some clashing stripes is TOTALLY ok and will give it a whole new look.

High-end athleisure and a plaid blazer just works. Maybe it shouldn't but it just does.

I love how wearing the blazer like this not only elevates what could be a drab outfit but it also makes the blazer look really street-style inspired because it's teamed with a cool, oversized hoodie.

Are you feelin' repeating statement pieces with a bunch of different outfits? Because I am and I think we should all be repeating our fave pieces as much as we want to!

So, it can be tricky with dresses...

If you saw the below dress, you might automatically think that this is the only way you're gonna wear it, which instantly makes you think you won't be able to repeat very often because it's pretty bold.
But... you just need to mix up your look a little and you can wear it as often as you like...

---> You could do it with either of the below looks and it would look so different


You can keep it super dressy with a longline blazer and loafers, perfect for any occasion or you can dress it right down with simple running shoes and an oversized denim jacket, which just completely changes the feel of the dress.

Just thinking a little differently can get so much more use out of your wardrobe!


Even this below look. Would you ever think to wear a shirtdress over a pair of boyfriend jeans? Try it and add a heeled mule and the look is so chic. It's a perfect way to get extra use out of your dresses moving into fall and in general, you just get to wear your favourite dresses more often! Winner winner.
