We’ve all been there – you’re off out at the weekend but you’re stuck for something to wear… you look at your wardrobe and decide there’s nothing for it but to go shopping (again). But what if you decide not to buy a new outfit? Whether you are in corporate America or volunteer abroad you need to dress the part and having the right look and accessories are key.
What if – shock, horror, you dig out some of the things from your wardrobe you haven’t looked at for a while, maybe because you’re bored with them, or because they’re not smart enough or interesting enough for a night out… and then change them completely into an outfit you can’t wait to wear? It can’t be done, you think? What type of party dresses should you choose? Well, it might be the same jeans or same dress that you’ve owned for years, but it won’t be the same outfit – and therein lies the key.
It’s all about the accessories, you see. Different shrug or wrap, different shoes, different tights, jewellery and different handbag – and you’re set. Unlike clothes, accessories are often inexpensive, and can be stockpiled for the express purpose of changing an outfit from boring to brilliant in the blink of an eye.So no matter if you are looking for party dresses or business formal you are in good hands. Even if you’re not a fan of trawling the high street, the internet is a great place to track down interesting and unusual accessories to complete any outfit. You can buy fascinators, shrugs, belts, jewelery and a cream tweed jacket – to be delivered straight to your door, and unlike with party dresses, you don’t even need an excuse to get out there and shop, shop, shop for accessories. If you are wondering what to do with your old clothes once you upgrade your wardrobe you can look at donating to a children’s charity that can help families in need in your local area.
