Personal Style Linkup – Remixing Your Wardrobe

Are you a fan of remixing your wardrobe?! I’ve found this skill to be very beneficial to my time, budget, and overall personal style. In this post, I talked about a few ways to style transitional wardrobe pieces – a huge part to remixing your wardrobe. Today, I want to show how I re-styled 2 of my favorite wardrobe pieces, as well as give you a few tips on how you too can re-style and remix your threads! :-)

I 1st wore this thrifted crop top with a pair of denim. This look was casual and trendy, and is also one of my favorite looks I’ve shared on WNJ to date. The lace maxi skirt, 1st debuted with another thrifted top, is also another OOTD fave. Now when it came to mixing these two items, I wanted to create an outfit perfect for a causal Spring or Summer weekend. I knew I had to include 3 items: (1) cute sandals, (2) cute jewelry, and (3) a pair of sunglasses. 

When remixing your wardrobe, it’s important to chose items that can easily be re-styled. Simple enough, right? So if you have an plain top, try re-styling it with a pair of “fun” pants that have some type of print. If you’re re-styling a solid color bottom, flip it and add a colorful or “fun” top. For this season, adding a pair of cute sandals and sunglasses is probably a no-brainer. Lastly a little edgy/or trendy jewelry never hurts. That’s the reason I chose to wear my oNeckalce name necklace and gold bamboo earrings with this look. Topping a look off like this with that kind of jewelry is what I call a perfect touch! ;-)

In a recent post, she too showed how to re-style an outfit. Her take on fashion and personal style is refreshing, true and always inspiring. The look below is from last (last) Monday’s linkup. I mean who doesn’t love a classic pencil skirt and a good pair of sexy sandals?!

    This is one thing I really need to get better at, I need to make the individual items in my wardrobe work harder. Too often I go for a tried-and-tested outfit that’s been done (to death!). I think the main thing you need for this is time, and also like you say, to have some plain pieces that you can mix up with different prints. I think you managed a remix really well! P x

      Thank you! And yes, it can be a struggle but I hope to get better at wardrobe remixing this season. XO!

    I won’t buy an item if it doesn’t go with other items in my wardrobe. I feel like its just a waist of money. Whitney, thanks again for the shout-out. This is so cool.

    Now, on to your remix. I love it! This look is perfect for a sexy, summer date. I says to me, “I’m sexy, but I’m also sweet.” The hints of leopard, paired with the lace is lovely. I can’t wait to see what you’ll do next!
