Zero Waste Dressing: 5 Tips + 1 Fashion Challenge

Monday morning. This is the rush. Coffee, shower and … “Pfffff! I have nothing to wear ! “. In front of your dressing room overflowing with clothes , fashion accessories and pairs of shoes, you are pissed off and mentally plan your next shopping session . Hep hep hep! What if your wardrobe hid forgotten treasures? Associations never attempted? New trends to explore? What if you could renew your wardrobe with your current clothes or change with inexpensive designer pieces ? After these 5 Zero Waste Dressing tips , you will no longer be able to say that you have nothing to wear in the morning!

Hijack your clothes

What if this bodycon strappy dress wasn’t just a dress? What if she could transform into two separate clothes ? A tank top and a tight skirt. Tadaaaaam! You have just won two items of clothing without spending a euro. The bottom of your dresses (tight, straight, A-line, etc.) can be worn as a skirt if you layer a sweater on top. Ditto with a jumpsuit or short jumpsuit. Another idea: the men’s shirt which, in addition to an oversized shirt with a masculine / feminine effect on you, can also be used as a strapless dress with the sleeves tied as a belt.

Choose original accessories

Want to feel like you’re changing your wardrobe inexpensively ? So, you should invest in assumed accessories. In fashionista memory, we have already surprised you in the act of admiration in front of original, colorful or shiny accessories. But you did not dare. You thought “no, I would never dare!” and “I wouldn’t wear it often enough”.
What if it was precisely THE essential strong piece to wake up your overly wise wardrobe? The one that would give you that rare and indescribable feeling of REALLY changing your look? To be someone else for a day.

A strong piece is the assurance of receiving compliments and questions like “is this new?” every time you wear it. A character piece in a bling bling jacket, pink shoes or a chunky turquoise necklace wakes up a basic outfit. Not to mention the splendidfloral kimono, real trend of the moment not to be missed. Nothing could be easier: combine a white t-shirt, black skinny jeans and a strong piece. Also think of hats, jewelry, socks, high socks, etc. You will be impressed with the change.

Zero Waste Dressing Room: rediscover your buried treasures

Do you always turn on the same 4-5 outfits while your wardrobe is overflowing with choices? Among the 80% of rarely worn clothes are undoubtedly hidden treasures forgotten . With a little imagination and a good dose of daring, you could give them a second chance. Try new combinations: cuts, materials, colors …Take it all out and rediscover these somewhat forgotten pieces.

Another tip if you grab the first item of clothing on the top of the pile without thinking in the morning: start rolling when putting your laundry away . Instead of storing clean laundry at the top of the stack, store them below. This way you will wear all your clothes without exception. And if one of them doesn’t appeal to you anymore, go to the next tip.

Sell and buy in vide-dressing

Vinted, Ebay, Le Bon Coin, LookBook App … The empty-dressing platforms are multiplying to the delight of fashionistas and fashion lovers who do not necessarily have the wallet to afford designer pieces at the price strong.
