Monday morning. It's the rush. Coffee, shower and. "Pfffff! I have nothing to wear!". In front of your dressing room overflowing with clothes, fashion accessories and pairs of shoes, you curse with rage and mentally plan your next shopping trip. Heh heh hep! What if your wardrobe hid forgotten treasures? Never before tried combinations? New trends to explore? What if you could upgrade your wardrobe with your current clothes or change it up with cheap designer pieces? After these 5 Zero Waste Dressing Tips, you won't be able to say that you have nothing to wear in the morning! ;)
1. Hijack your clothes
What if this tight strappy dress wasn't just a dress? What if she could turn into two separate clothes? A tank top and a tight skirt. Tadaaaaam! You have just won two clothes without having spent a euro.
The bottom of your dresses (tight, straight, trapeze, etc. ) can be worn as a skirt if you layer a sweater over the top. Ditto with a jumpsuit or a jumpsuit.
Another idea: the men's shirt which, in addition to an oversized shirt with a masculine/feminine effect on you, can also be used as a bustier dress with the sleeves tied in a belt.
And presto! A man's shirt turned into a sexy strapless dress (Pinterest)
Do you love your summer dress and you refuse to put it away in the back of the closet for the winter? Wear it over a long-sleeved top (or a turtleneck).
2. Opt for original accessories
Want to feel like you're changing your wardrobe on the cheap? So you should invest in assumed accessories.
As a fashionista, you've already been caught in the act of admiring original, colorful or shiny accessories. But you didn't dare. You thought "no, I would never dare!" and "I wouldn't wear it often enough".
And if it was precisely THE essential strong piece to wake up your dressing room too wise? The one that would give you that rare and indescribable feeling of REALLY changing your look? To be someone else for a day.
A strong piece is the assurance of receiving compliments and questions like "is it new?" every time you wear it.
Also think of hats, jewellery, ankle socks, high socks, etc.
You will be impressed with the change.
3. Zero Waste Dressing Room: Rediscover Your Buried Treasures
Do you always shoot the same 4-5 outfits when your wardrobe is overflowing with choices? Among the 80% of seldom-worn clothes are probably hidden treasures. With a little imagination and a good dose of daring, you could give them a second chance. Try new combinations: cuts, materials, colors.
Take everything out and rediscover these somewhat forgotten pieces.
Another tip if you catch the first garment on the top of the pile without thinking in the morning: establish a rotation when putting away your laundry.
Instead of putting clean laundry at the top of the pile, put it at the bottom. In this way, you will wear all your clothes without exception.
And if you don't like one of them anymore, go to the next tip.
4. Sell and buy in empty-dressing
Vinted, Ebay, Le Bon Coin, LookBook App. Dressing room platforms are multiplying to the delight of fashionistas and fashion lovers who don't necessarily have the wallet to buy designer pieces at full price.
The empty-dressing room is for you if:
- you like to change your wardrobe often
- you can no longer stand certain pieces of your dressing room
Instead of keeping the pariahs for 20 years in the depths of the closet, resell them, make a small pot and reinvest in the new collection of Small Prints for example ;)
Give a second life to your clothes, fashion accessories and shoes. Make another girl happy to find a cool piece at a low price!
