It's easy to get attached to the same type of outfits each week, especially in the winter. We've bitten the bullet and are finally going de-cluttering the closet and organizing our drawers. Going through our stacks of unending tried and true sweaters, jeans, and "go-to" work pants, there is a glimmer of what once was showing it's familiar face. Yes, that's right I'm talking about the yellow blazer you wore to every post graduate interview in the summer of 2012, the tutu skirt in a daring color Carrie Bradshaw MADE you get.
Let's be honest, even the most meticulous of closet cleaners has a dedicated area where rarely worn clothes live in purgatory. We're not saying there's anything glaringly wrong with these clothes. They fit, they're free of rips and stains, and they've served you well in the past but now service as more of a wildcard than anything. Essential as they once were, you can't see beyond how you used to wear them to figure out what to do with them now and yet they still find a way of sticking around in your closet. Your statement color and style may have shifted gears, but that doesn't mean that you're ready to make like Elsa and "let it go".
That's right, you don't need to fret or feel shameful of your perfect "going-out" top from junior year or those kelly green pants you "had to have". You can hold onto your oldies, and flip them back into goodies as long as you approach them with a fresh set of styling tricks. These closet curveballs deserve a second chance. Challenge yourself to bust out of the black and grey pack and add some spice to your wardrobe and be sure to #sjstylechallege when you snap your creations. Happy styling!
