Fight winter boredom by shopping your closet for new looks

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.

Shop your own closet for new outfits. #sustainablefashion Click To Tweet

Style a 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. You can even fake a half tuck! It’s easy! Just 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 the outfit with fake half tuck in the post at the link

Try to revamp your outerwear

Even when you  have a large, awesome coat wardrobe, you should style your outerwear and switch things up to get the reputation of being incredibly stylish. Thus, also shop your closet with respect to your accessories. Try accessorizing  with belts or accessorizing with scarves for style. Why not both like in the photo below?

Congrats ladies, please grab your respective featured Top of the World OOTD button from the fashion linkup directory.

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.
