SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW; COMBINING PIECES LIKE YOU NEVER KNEW…


Rosie Assouline top MIH flared jeans Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

Take your oldest pair of jeans – like I did with the flared MIH Jeans I’m wearing in today’s post – and combine it with your latest purchase: this Rosie Assoulin top. Voila, a fresh new look you probably never thought off, simply created with a piece from your wardrobe you most likely forgot about – yes, you will have to dig in that closet of yours to find what you will need, but it will be worth it!

This is my plan of action lately, when getting dressed in the morning, because I noticed – with having three different wardrobes: one in my bedroom, one in my office, plus an office rack with my latest purchases – I’m literally forgetting about everything that’s in my closets, which is of course too big of a shame, because most of it I still love. The trick is finding ways to bring “the old” and “the new” together in a look that is relevant today. Trends always come back, and there will be a time you want to wear that pair of flared jeans again…

Now I’m not advising you to just keep everything you have in your wardrobe, I’m actually a firm believer in wardrobe detoxing and anti-hoarder. In fact, I just finished another wardrobe detox and it feels like so much weight if off my shoulders. But needless to say, you have to be real sure that the things you do get rid of, are really the things you feel you will never wear again. Or they have to be replaceable, in the case of a re-emerging trend. I mean, I think it’s better to not get rid of that Gucci summer dress for the reason that you wore it too many times already – and people start recognizing you as the girl with the Gucci dress – or your favorite leather biker jacket that is not really on-trend right now, but you know will NEVER go out of fashion, or those pointy heels… I think we all thought those were DONE a few seasons back, but then Balenciaga proved us wrong!

So, the take-away for today: Do wardrobe-detoxes, do save your favorite pair of flared jeans, do combine it with one of your new summer tops, and be happy!

YOUR THOUGHTS

  • I am such a fan of mixing old and new, because yes, everything comes back and even sometimes I don’t mind the trends if I love a piece so much that I wear it until it has holes in it (not showing those on IG, obvs!) – anyways, you look amazing on those flared jeans Charlotte, love the colour and the combo with this beautiful one shoulder off top

    Hope you are having a great week and looking forward to seeing your Todds project!!

      Hi Saida, Thanks for your lovely comment. I always enjoy reading them, but especially when someone is actually “saying” something in it… Xxx

      • Aaaaand I just giggled like a little girl after seeing you had replied to my comment, you are such an inspiration and not only on the fashion front. You made my day! ♥

  • Natali

    Your last sentence says it all!! :) I have some pieces that have been for years part of my closet and which I have gladly re-worn over and over again and styled with new additions too..
    Some pieces are just such a classics which will never go out of style, just like your flared jeans!

  • I am a fan of mixing old and new items in my wardrobe. In fact, I don’t buy new items unless they match with things I already own. I love your look!

  • Love this mix!!! I am firm believer in keeping old clothes but also like occasional detox. I think trends are great but some peaces will never go out of fashion and if you feel great in them who cares if its on trend?! xx

  • Adore the top & colour of your jeans, the blue looks super vibrant. I follow exactly the same ethos when it comes to detoxing my wardrobe. I tend not to get rid of jackets so much & of course classic wardrobe staples. Having seen a lot of tartan coming thru for Fall from the likes of Balmain I’ll be dusting off my Tartan blazer that I held onto since the last time it was in!!
    Hugs Adele xoxo

  • Amazing look !! Love the top & the bag !!
