All you need is a little creativity and imagination, and we'll show you how to mix and match your clothes to create new looks.
What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
Whether you call it creating a capsule wardrobe or mixing and matching, the concept is the same. It’s all about having a few key pieces in your wardrobe that can be worn and styled in different ways to give the illusion that you’re wearing a completely new outfit. It’s about creating a unique and sustainable fashion style for yourself that is multi-purpose.
Repurposing clothes doesn’t have to mean wearing your jeans until they are made of more holes than fabric. It means wearing certain items in different ways in order to create different looks, thereby investing in sustainable, quality clothing and repurposing fashion for the greater good of yourself and the planet.
5 Key Items For Muti-Purpose Clothing
We believe that there are five key pieces of clothing and items that can be worn in multiple ways in order to give you a variety of different looks for both day and night, work, and pleasure.
Investing in a good quality jacket or a few styles of jackets can give you a variety of choices when it comes to creating multiple outfits. Pairing a jacket with a dress and heels can give you a professional work look while pairing that same jacket with a pair of jeans, a tee and some sneakers can give you a smart casual weekend look too.
Is eco-friendly cleaning important to you?
Reusing your favourite jacket is a great repurposing clothes idea that can turn one jacket into several different outfit choices.
Everyone has that one pair of jeans that they love, right? Now imagine being able to wear your favourite jeans on just about any occasion too? Jeans are a great multi-purpose item that can be dressed up or down with a few simple changes. A smart shirt and heels paired with jeans can create a formal yet cheeky night-time look. Sandals and a cropped tee can turn those same jeans into a hippy, casual look for a weekend outing – there really is no need for two different pairs of jeans.
If you love to wear dresses, investing in a little black dress or LBD is going to stand you in good stead. A plain, black dress, in a cut that suits your body shape well, can be worn in several different ways when paired with a range of other items. Choose a colourful scarf and heels for a work look or choose white sneakers and a denim jacket for a casual day look.
Wraps & Scarves
Wraps and scarves are excellent repurposing clothes ideas because you can wear them in so many ways. Scarves can be worn around the neck, around the head, around your waist, or even as a bracelet to create unique, different looks with the same piece of fabric. Wraps in different colours and shapes can also turn that LBD into a variety of different outfits.
Don’t forget accessories as your last key item when it comes to sustainable, multi-purpose fashion. Changing your accessories can literally turn the exact same dress or jacket into a different look and outfit each time. Think headbands, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and brooches as sustainable accessories that you shouldn’t leave the house without.
