Shoes: DSW • Denim: Banana Republic • Sweater: Target (old! Similar style here!) • Black x Gold necklace: Stella and Dot • Long gold necklace: My grandmother’s (similar style here!) • Watch: Daniel Wellington • Silver cuff: David Yurman • Gold cuff: The Styled Collection • Handbag: Valentino • Ring: David Yurman • Lipstick: Altressa by Christian Louboutin

We all have those days when we walk into our closet and think to ourselves, ‘I have nothing to wear!’ (This especially happens to me when I haven’t shopped awhile) Which is insane, cause we all, most likely, have a closet full of clothes, but maybe they’re older and you haven’t pulled them out in awhile.  Plus, it’s so easy to gravitate towards the clothes you always tend to wear – that top that looks great with that one pair of jeans or the jeans that pair well with those flats you got for your birthday. I’m definitely guilty of that. But I have a few ways you can bring a few of your old pieces out and mix/match them with a few of your daily accessories.

  1. Throw on a Statement Necklace. This outfit is an oldie but goodie. My gray sweater is from Target 2 years ago but it has always been a great basic. Since I’ve worn this top so much in the last few years, I thought I’d spice it up with a few necklaces so I threw on a black and gold choker style necklace paired with a longer gold chain that was my grandmother’s.
  2. Hairstyle Plays an Important Role. How you style your hair can make a difference in your look. When I pick an outfit that is an older one, I like to try new hairstyles to dress up my look. For this outfit, I decided to throw it up in a messy ponytail so it elongates my face. Try a new hairstyle with an outfit you’re not thoroughly jazzed about.
  3. Apply a Bold Eye x Lip . Doing makeup can take time out of your morning routine (at least for me, it does!). I always feel like when I do makeup, it takes forever but once it’s done, I love it. Take the time to apply a bold eye and lip when you’re wearing an outfit that is an older look or one that you tend to lean towards. It can definitely adds a beauty dynamic to your look and can fancy it up.
