This is the first capsule of clothing remix. The idea is to take ONE piece from my wardrobe and create a new outfit with items already in my closet. The goal here is not to end up with several ensembles but to have one new stunning outfit that I will actually wear and feel good in. I do this twice a year, usually before spring and fall, and I find myself buying less clothing. Sometimes all it takes to refresh a wardrobe are some trendy accessories. Here’s how to do it.
Choose one piece at the time so you won’t get overwhelmed with a bunch of clothes laying on your bed. It is easier this way to complete the task without spending to much time on it.
Ask yourself these questions: Do I want to wear this piece for a special occasion, for work or weekends? Which colors or patterns would be nice with it? Do I want to achieve a minimalist or a maximalist look? Is there a new trend that I want to try with this piece of clothing? Do I need to buy something to created the look? Is DIY a possible option?
Let yourself be inspired by nature, art, a scarf, a jewelry, a color or a photo…
Be open minded and have fun. The key is to try different mixing items you already have in your wardrobe. You will be surprised; sometimes just by introducing a new color combination helps to create a completely different look.
If you’re not sure. Perhaps this post could help you learn more on how to mix colors: The six basic techniques for creating color schemes. You could also have a friend helping you. Then the task suddenly becomes a more enjoyable moment.
See below how I completed the remix of my tweed pants.
The piece: Tweed pants.
How I normally wear it: With a print blouse, a puffer vest and booties for a vintage vibe.

What I’m looking for: I seek a more modern look that is still fun.
Inspiration: My silver pumps. I like the contrast of style (a feminine piece with one that is inspired from the boys fashion).
My look : Unfortunately, we don’t see the blue stripes of the blouse, which matches the color of the bag.
