(Striped shirt & "Winnie" pants also mentioned in my top 10 products post)
scarf: vintage // sunglasses: old from Krewe du Optic (almost identical from Warby Parker)
As I mentioned on my Instagram post, one of my New Year resolutions is to wear more of the clothes in my closet & if I find myself not wearing particular items, to sell/donate/give away those pieces. These navy pants were one of the items that I purchased this year, but for one reason or another, only wore them 1-2 times. After loving the "Winnie" pants in black so much, I thought the navy version would also be a great addition to my closet, but the color was more difficult to style than anticipated.
Maybe some would call it self-punishment, but when I find myself consistently reaching for an item & failing to wear it out, I make myself promise to either find a way to wear it, or remove it from my closet. This week I will be showing off 3 ways that I have now worn these pants in the past month - meaning that they have passed the test & get to stay in my closet.
How do you weed out unworn pieces? Are you a believer in having a simplified closet, or do you live by the philosophy of bigger = better? Any particular style resolutions this year?
When I struggle to style certain pieces, an easy place to start is by pairing the item with other foolproof favorites. This striped tee is a champion in my closet, & the combo of navy + blush pink felt like a safe place to start!
