How to re-wear your wardrobe this New Year

Each time January rolls around we inevitably feel the ‘new year, new me’ induced pressure to reinvent ourselves.

Unfortunately, this often revolves around the way we look – and while we would like to remind you all that beauty comes from the inside - Kindred. is here to provide some tips and tricks which will allow you to upgrade last year’s wardrobe for this year – without spending a penny. This is a skill that will inevitably come in handy in the face of the January sales.

Furthermore, not only is it more sustainable for your own bank account to re-wear your existing clothes, but it will inevitably reduce your impact on the environment, proving beneficial on both a personal and global level.

Our first and most vital tip is – learn how to layer.

That turtleneck that you dig out every winter to pair with the same plain jeans is dying to be worn under your favourite t-shirt, shirt, or slip dress. Not only does it provide an extra layer of warmth to help you through the months of January and February, but it also gives a beloved item a new lease of life.

Following on from this – don’t be afraid to re-wear your summer wardrobe in winter.

Layer long sleeve tops under a t-shirt or knit vest, your favourite summer dress with a jumper, and never forget the power of a good pair of tights.

Equally, don’t be afraid to wear colours deemed more appropriate for summer.

Who said bright colours were only for the warmer months. We say – brighten up those early winter evenings with a pop of colour, usually left at the back of the wardrobe until May.

Importantly - never forget accessories.

Accessories can elevate your existing clothes and make them feel brand new. We suggest you have a rummage through that box under the bed full of old hats, gloves, and scarfs -who cares if it’s what you wore when you were 9? Y2K is trending, so we might as well embrace what our younger selves loved.

Reconnecting with that inner-child who was obsessed with the colour pink or star print or whatever it was, can help you find joy in clothes again. Taking away the concern for how they look and replacing it with the question, how do they feel.

Finally, if you are going to invest in something, Kindred. suggests purchasing a statement coat or jacket.

This way you can elevate all your most simple, re-worn outfits without having to bat an eyelid. Simply chuck it on over jeans and a hoodie, and you are ready to go.

Most importantly, have fun and get creative!

Fashion is to be enjoyed - embrace what makes you feel good and dress for yourself. After all, we only get one life, so be bold with your choices and celebrate who you are.
