Shopping the closet for new outfits

Get more Wear out of Your Wardrobe

When the winter wardrobe boredom sets in and spring still is a no show, don’t run to the stores and buy the leftovers of the winter season. Instead shop your closet for some new outfits.

Sheath as skirt

If you have a sheath dress in your closet wear it as a skirt by wearing the sweater over instead of under the dress. To fake a half tuck fold one side of the sweater inside and pin it to the dress. Ensure that the pinning is not visible from the outside. I have used this trick also when creating this outfit.

Revamping the outerwear

Also shop your closet with respect to your accessories. Wear a belt over your coat or a scarf. Why not both like in the photo below?

Link up your examples below in addition to your OOTD. You don’t need a blog to participate in the linkup. Instagram, Pinterest, and facebook posts work as well. See you at the party! 🙂

Congrats ladies, please grab your respective featured Top of the World OOTD button.

I am honored to introduce you to this week’s co-host of Top of the World Style Roxanne. She lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband and two giant cats called Jake and Elwood. She worked as an attorney for two years in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to DC in August 2015 when she got married. While her lawyer job is writing intensive, she still craves a reason to write creatively. She created Glass of Glam as an outlet to write about things that she enjoys. Take a minute and stop by her blog to say Hi.
