New items give a fresh perspective on what you own

Whenever I have a new piece in my closet I have to wear it as soon as the weather allows. After the first wear, the new item goes on repeat, sort off. What I mean with this is that I wear it more often than other clothes in my closet. I call it the “new factor.” I test-drive new outfits that are now possible. After a while, this “new factor” fades down and the piece goes into normal rotation of wear. As time progresses, it gets worn fewer and fewer times, until it does not make the cut in the next seasonal closet haul-over.

Never buy an item for which you can't come up with at least 3 new outfits off links. #budgetfashion Click To Tweet

Try out new outfits

As you know this baby pink dress is new. I wore it the first time with pink shoes and a motorcycle vest.

The second time around, I went with a light wash tailored denim jacket. At the office, I took the jacket off (see photos). The edgy DIY necklace and the pumps take the sweet vibe of the dress to serious.

The mirrored aviator Ray Ban glasses and edgy DIY necklace take this risky color combination into serious territory.
