We’ve all splurged on a stunning outfit for a special event and then never wore it again. Case in point, I wore this particular outfit to Concours d’elegance. It was not only was posted on my social media pages but also a few Kenyan publications which sadly, left me feeling unenthused about it, I could of course leave it to mould in my wardrobe or give it away. But my initial approach would however be to recycle the outfit. I will share with you my tips on how this can be done to your best advantage and make the most of those outfits that you spent your hard earned dime on. Because truth is, not all of us can afford 365 clothes per year.

Wear outfit to a chill venue with a different crowd-One of the main reasons that prevents us from wearing an outfit again is because of the fear that people saw you in it. So try rock it to a quiet social gathering like lunch with friends and family, to avoid the scrutiny which sadly is with us.

Accessorize and Style – Never underestimate the power of accessories plus mix and matching different separates.

Refashion – Maxi dress to mini dress? long sleeved to sleeveless? adding appliques ? … with a creative mind and a good tailor, the options are endless.

Wait When I do repeat a statement outfit, I usually wait at least a couple of months or more to do so. It helps the ensemble feel new and fresh again.

Shop Wisely I love finding clothes that I can wear again and again, classic pieces that I know will suit my lifestyle. and can be worn over and over again.
