Hey Fashion Girl!!
I'm getting prettty tired of my look. I wear a tank top, cardigan, and leggings practically every day. I'm looking to spice up my outfits a little bit, however I don't have much money to buy new clothes. I am definitely open to upcycling some of my older clothes but I need advice on how to do it.
I love the cardigan/leggings look, but I know what you mean. Sometimes, we just need to change it up, and hit the reset button on our look. Everyday outfits need to be versatile and comfy, right? So, why not try wearing a dress or skirt over your leggings. It's kinda like substituting your cardi with a dress for a completely different look. You could also pair your cardi with shorts, tights, and boots. How cute would that be.
I found these looks on Forever 21 that I absolutely love. Here's what you do. Dig through your closet for your cutest graphic tee, then style it with a casual skirt and sneakers. Throw on a statement jacket like this moto, and you're all set for a totally new look.
Why not try wearing your cardigan with a sequin shift dress, utility boots, and a beanie. Or sequin leggings with a graphic tee and a casual coat. The whole dressy/casual mixup is so cute. It shows that you're chic and totally chill at the same time.
One last suggestion. Accessorize! Never underestimate how different your look can be if you just throw on a hat, like this fedora. Adorbs! A totally simple dress gets a whole new life when you wear it with a fedora and boots.
Anyway, let me know what you come up with. Would love to see pics. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
