Shop Your Closet – Beat The End Of Season Rut

HOW TO BUY NOTHING AND SHOP YOUR CLOSET INSTEAD

My entire outfit is made up of pieces I already own. I hate buying clothes for a season that’s almost over. My solution is to shop your closet to beat the end of season rut.

I HAVE TWO WAYS TO INSPIRE YOU TO SHOP YOUR CLOSET:
  1. Look at an outfit inspiration picture and try to find pieces you already own that are similar to the ones in the picture. If you don’t have a leather jacket, maybe you have a jean jacket that you can wear over a chunky sweater and either leggings or colored denim. Or you can even wear regular jeans for a denim on denim look.
  2. Start with the item you own and love (a chunky sweater, for example) and try it out with every single bottom you have in your closet – leggings, jeans, pants, skirts, even over a dress! You will likely discover a combination you hadn’t thought of before.

I have to admit that I was inspired by my recent purchase of this suede moto jacket to revive this faux leather one I got a few months ago. You’ve seen me style it with a pink tulle skirt and with jeans. I really love it paired with this cozy waffle knit white sweater. Maybe because it reminds me of the first time I wore this sweater as an off the shoulder with my faux leather pants. That last one remains one of my favorite looks!

Moto jackets are very popular now in both (faux) leather and suede. My particular one has been long sold out but I have linked a number of similar options for you below.

The jeans I’m wearing are also an old purchase. I recently bought a couple of high waisted pairs but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect fitting and feeling classic pair of jeans. Hopefully I will find it soon and share with you!
