As the new season rolls around, it can be tempting to start eyeing up the new-in pieces that are dropping in-store, and while there are occasions when a purchase is required, we tend to find that that sense of "newness" can be re-created with pieces that are already sitting in your wardrobe. It's all about styling. Personally, I love browsing both the latest street style snaps and runway looks to gather ideas for the coming months. Typically, these sources are rich with inspiration and cutting-edge ways to work even the most timeless items of clothing.
For me, both the Celine and COS A/W 21 shows were gold mines for easy yet undeniably fresh outfit pairings. Think bomber jackets and midi skirts, slip dresses and oversized blazers, miniskirts and chunky boots. Deceptively simple yet they all have that particular 2021 brand of je ne sais quoi that makes you fall in love with fashion all over again—all without spending a penny. Of course, the fashion set gave the models a run for their money with their street style ensembles, and I particularly fell for Camille Charrière's slouchy trouser–and–knitted vest pairing, which I plan on re-creating this autumn.
So if you're looking to curb your spending this season or simply want to love what you already own, scroll down to see the outfit pairings that will make your old clothes feel new again.
