I'm done de-cluttering my closet, now what should I do? It's time to find inspirations and create a mood board!
After cleaning out my closet, I've unearthed a couple of structured bags (and other wonderful fashion treasures) that I'm excited to use! I also realized that I have amassed quite a number of black blazers, booties, and leatherette pants! I know what you're thinking, "How do you create a summer wardrobe with winter clothes reusing what you already have?"
Thanks to Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler's Pre-Fall collection, I have a plan:
Pair black jackets/blazers/vests with sheer tops and add peep-toe or slingback booties
Pair leather jackets/vests with khaki shorts or black Bermuda shorts with oversize cotton shirt. No tights!
Wear black trousers with sleeveless knit top and boyfriend's jeans with strappy sandals
Colorful dress with booties
Black blazer with printed pants or with black shorts
Shorts with colorful blazer or black blazer with printed shorts
Colorful separates with booties
There you go ladies, gentlemen, and gheys — my sumasummer attire!
I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I'm more of a "winter" dresser than a "summer" outfitera. That's the case because I rarely go to the beach these days. Being a stylist, my work evolves around the studio, mall, and my car; which are all air-conditioned. The only time I'm outdoors is when I shoot on location, and even then, I wear long sleeved shirts to protect my skin and boots to protect my legs.
Excuse me while I go shop for some more new printed pants, shorts, and oversize cotton shirts... What? It's all about balance, right? You reuse some, you buy some. Haha!
Shoppingero/shoppingera, what pieces of "winter" clothing/accessories would you still like to wear this summer?
