I am currently in the mood to restyle what ever I have in my wardrobe because I am tired of buying something and not wearing it. Sadly, there have been times where I had to discard them by either donating or giving it away without even wearing it once. And I know I am not the only one who faces these uneconomical situations on a regular basis. Brands like H&M have come out with a sustainable campaign which allows you to give away a bag full of clothes that you don’t need anymore and with every bag of clothes that you give away, you get a 15% discount coupon. They use those received clothes to refurbish it and come up with new designs in the same print. I hope this is true. I have tried this and have received coupons to purchase from the store. But that results in buying more new clothes which is the opposite of recreating styles.
The whole point of this project is to REUSE – RECREATE – RESTYLE.
I have noticed a lot of people reusing and recreating styles from outfits that they have worn once (on social media) , knowingly or unknowingly. I keep stressing on “worn outfit” because we are living in a generation where a lot of us buy clothes just for social media and then keep it aside for it to rot. And people who don’t wear new outfits are judged and looked upon. Yes, it is depressing! Thankfully, a lot of my friends believe in restyling. If you follow Styleprism, Ishtyleawhile, Shivani Boruah, and HuesofMe, you would know. The current leading fashion influencer Komal Pandey, lifestyle blogger Komal Singh and Charuta are few more names to add to that list of Restyling Gurus. They create styles out of their wardrobe that looks like magic.
In this post, I have recreated this style by reusing a satin dress that I had bought four years back from Goa (was almost going to discard it) and these Indo-western boots from Ajio (wore it million times). Some say beach dresses can’t be worn in a city but I don’t agree. All you have to do is up your restyling game. As simple as that.
Let’s come together and REUSE-RECREATE-RESTYLE!
