You know how you sometimes shouldn’t chuck items too quickly? That is what goes for the following 5 items in my wardrobe that I am very happy that I have kept over the years. At some point in time I definitely started to forget about these and I started to wear them less. But as tastes change in mostly circular ways in the fashion industry, so does my taste in my wardrobe.
Rediscovered items in my wardrobe
These 5 items are all items that I have had for years. Some I bought sale, but most were definitely impulse buys and those are always tricky. Still, these items all work well in my wardrobe and that is why I hung on to them. For a while, I wasn’t interested in them much, but after clearing out my wardrobe, these definitely came back to the forefront of my mind again.
Crop top | Urban Outfitters
This top was an absolute steal. I found it on sale when I was in London. It has lovely floral pattern, a button down front and it has a beautiful scalloped edge. Not something I wear every day, but it is a great piece for layering or for warm summer days. I love how quirky yet girly this is and it perfectly fits my style.
Floral blazer | Vila
Another sale find is this oversized blazer by Vila. I deliberately bought it 3 sizes too big. It was the only size left and at the time I just loved the vibrant colors of this. This works well against an all white outfit, but looks great with jeans and a t-shirt too. The bright colors liven up any outfit and I love the boxy fit of this. It has a boyfriend fit to it on me, which means that it makes for a great casual piece that is definitely a conversation starter.
Pink blouse | H&M
I love blouses in the spring time and this shade of pink isn’t too pink and not too coral. That definitely makes this a weird items to style though. It is a color that I don’t wear often and therefore it is an item that I always found hard to style. I have found out though that it works well with black for a more dressed up look and with jeans for a more casual vibe. In short, this was a lot more versatile than expected, I just didn’t realize it.
Shaggy cardigan | River Island
This River Island cardigan was one I wore loads when I first got it and then I pretty much forgot I owned it. Beige/ oatmeal isn’t a great color on me and so I forgot how to wear this. Layered over darker shades, this looks great and it is definitely another quirky item. It has a bat wing sleeve and the loose knit makes it perfect pretty much year round.
Polka dot dress | Monki
My very first purchase from Monki was this dress. A grass green polka dot dress with a pussybow tie detail, this dress was one that I simply stopped wearing. For a while, I wasn’t much into dresses, where a few years ago I wore nothing but dresses. Now that I have started wearing dresses more again, this has becomes another firm favorite. The skirt length on this is quite short, but I don’t mind showing a bit of leg and I love pairing it with black tights anyway.
