In between timeless outfits and cringe-inducing fashion photos, there are those old outfits that you can look back on and simply update for a more current feel. No one has a perfect track record when it comes to creating timeless looks, so it’s ok to make mistakes and learn along the way. All outfits have element about them that are re-workable and adaptable. Like this outfit about styling a leather dress, that features a black shift dress and polka dot blouse.
While each piece actually holds classic properties, the combination style is telling of the times. Polka dots are a classic trend and shift dresses can be elegant wardrobe staples. So, by simply wearing the dress over the blouse instead of the reverse, you create a more ageless look as shown in styling a leather dress with florals.
When it comes to how to update old outfits, what you take away is just as important to what add. For instance, even though the knee-high socks are still a cute look years later, it has a Britney Spears circa 1998 sweetness to it, that no longer feels age appropriate. Instead, black opaque tights offer a classic & elegant finish, along with black court heels instead of the trendier platform wedges. Additionally, changing jewellery and accessories is a great option for revamping old ensembles.
As with life, your style is a journey and you should revisit your looks from the past with a smile, inspiration or at the very least a good laugh.
