7 New Outfits I Just Found Thanks to Clearing Out My Wardrobe

We are spending quite a bit more time inside than usual, and if you're trying to get your mind off the current news, then perhaps we can help in the form of reorganising your wardrobe. Sure, you might feel like reaching for the credit card, but before you start purchasing clothing that you might not need, why not head to your wardrobe and shop it instead? Over the past week, I decided to have a look at items I wasn’t wearing much and see how I could put new life into pieces I wear on repeat. 

I also had a look at some of my favourite influencers for some outfit inspiration and what I could steal from them. The result was discovering seven new looks I can wear for the foreseeable future. Bonus: All of these outfits can be worn with your favourite slides and slippers. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know.

1. CHUNKY JUMPER + PARTY SKIRT

Style Notes: A chunky knit and a party dress is really my ideal combination. You get the fancy look on the bottom and comfort on the top. 

2. KNITTED DRESS + LEATHER JACKET

Style Notes: There’s something quietly sassy about the knitted dress. To update it for 2020, wear a leather blazer over the top and some hoop earrings. 

3. SUMMER DRESS + ROLL-NECK + FUN SOCKS

Style Notes: Floral dresses are not going away anytime soon, and I’m loath to cast my summer dress aside just because it’s not quite hot enough. Instead, I’ll be wearing it with a roll-neck and brightly coloured socks. 

4. BLAZER + SHIRT + JEANS

Style Notes: How do you make a blazer feel fresh again? Add your favourite blouse. 

5. ROLL-NECK + LOGO TEE + JEANS

Style Notes: Roll-necks took a turn for the boldly printed this season. Make it feel fresh again by digging out your old band tees (I’ve got a vintage Black Sabbath T-shirt that remains one of my favourites) and wear with jeans. 

6. WHITE T-SHIRT + BLUE JEANS + BLAZER

Style Notes: Sometimes it’s easy to forget about the simplest of outfits. A black blazer, white T-shirt and jeans is just one outfit I’ll be wearing thanks to digging out my favourite blue denim. 

7. GREY JUMPER + SMART JOGGERS + SANDALS

Style Notes: If in doubt, just chuck on your favourite grey jumper and knitted trousers and pair with dad sandals. Chanel versions optional.
