More with less! That old story that repeating clothes is tacky is in the past and the trend now is to bring the same piece to life on different occasions.
Clothing and image experts give tips on how to reinvent yourself in the face of few options in the closet and still save in style.
Personal stylist Hemi Gimenes highlights that social networks are great allies when it comes to offering ideas for dressing well, repeating pieces from the closet.
“Social networks have helped a lot with this, we have tips distributed everywhere, it’s very interesting how today a t-shirt is not just a t-shirt or a skirt is not just a skirt”, she says.
One of the personal recommendations is the harmonic wardrobe, following the personal references of each person. “I always advise clients that if your wardrobe pieces speak to your personality, you will have no difficulty getting dressed, even with fewer options”.
The image and style consultant Ludmilla Giacomelli points out that the biggest benefit of this practice is in the economy. “When you repeat an outfit, you avoid a new expense all the time. With a smart wardrobe, with pieces that match each other, you multiply your looks with the same products, it’s quite an economy”, she says.
Jani Valença, image and style consultant, says that creativity makes all the difference when putting together a look. “Fashion allows us creativity today. Contrary to what they say, repeating clothes is chic! If you innovate in accessories, increment a third piece, everything is valid”, she highlights.
Jani leaves a golden tip for consumers not to make a mistake when buying clothing. “Before buying a piece, people need to think of at least three possibilities for combinations with other products in their closet. If you can’t, don’t buy it, it’s not worth it,” she recommends.
The digital influencer Larissa Hoffman, 26, who works in the field of fashion and content production, indicates the blazer as a joker piece of any closet.
“The blazer is a very good investment, because it goes from casual to formal, and serves as a third piece, especially during winter,” he explains.
“Other examples of key pieces are straight, wide leg or pantalona jeans, which are models that fit well to different bodies”.
