Mix clothes to create new outfits

Do you want different outfits without spending a lot?

We can create multiple outfits by mixing clothes, this is the fun aspect of clothing.

For this reason I recommend you always think about what you have in the closet before buying that garment. Think of all the possibilities you have of creating different looks by changing some accessory or some clothes.

If you look carefully in your wardrobe there is certainly the shirt that you haven’t worn for some time, but that is perfect with the colors of the skirt that you have just bought.

And remember that fashion is a game, it is what allows us to express the thousand shades of our being and that is why we should dress with the same care that we usually use to do all other things.

Different ways to mix tartan

Today I want to show you how I created a different outfit using the same tartan skirt.

Do you remember the post How to Wear Tartan? I had paired the ocher and red tartan skirt with a black leather jacket, red ankle boots and a red bag.

A bold way to wear tartan, today’s version is more bon ton.

Starting from the colors of the skirt, that you cannot ignore, I chose the mustard-colored silk shirt (to be worn into the skirt).

I had bought this garment in the United States and, I must confess, that I had worn it once or twice because the color didn’t convince me too much.

As you know I don’t get rid of my clothes and, in this case, I did very well because I really like the combination with the tartan skirt.

At this point the mustard boots by Dries Van Noten, who had remained in their box for a couple of years, seemed to me the ideal solution.

Also in this case I want to remind you that if something (a pair of shoes, a dress, or any other garment) doesn’t stimulate you more for a period, do not throw it away; there will be an opportunity in which that object will be perfect to create the outfit.

The chosen bag by Paula Cademartori bag with colored details to give the extra touch. To complete the bon ton style I added the red coat and the red earrings.

What do you think about? Which outfit do you prefer?
