Buying clothes is an expensive hobby of mine. Some months I can’t afford to do a lot of shopping and I get those weeks ( like recently) where I want to buy something but i can’t find anything. However, i’m a firm believer that you can revive some of your autumn pieces by applying a few summer tricks.
I have had this longline floral top from Topshop for years and I have probably worn it a handful of times. But recently I found myself longing to wear it but I wanted it to look fresh.
Therefore, I added my metallic sandals from Zara, some simple silver hoops and a light nude lipstick and to my amazement the look actually looked young and summer ready. Wearing a dress over jeans is the new hip thing to do, but I can’t say I have tried that yet. However, if you’re small like me a longline top will work just as well and if it’s something from your A/W side of the wardrobe then all you have to do is add some playful accessories to brighten the style.
I love this ASOS floral t-shirt and although the colours seem to be straight from an autumn palette, I decided that black accessories would work really well with this top to create a very casual daytime look. Never underestimate the power of black accessories in summer. I teamed it with my favourite Jamie ripped jeans from Topshop and fringed suede sandals from River Island. I added my Chloe dupe bag to draw on the 70s element of my look a.k.a. wallpaper florals, fringing and a cross body bag.
This look is simple, chic and easy to achieve with any of your winter florals. Sometimes you just need to go shopping in your wardrobe and experiment with different accessories and just refresh the clothing. You’ll be surprised at how different your outfits can be with a bit of sampling.
