Hi, I'm Shannon

According to studies on the social psychology of dress, our clothes can affect how others perceive us. Still, it can be tiring to pick out different outfits every day. But wearing the same thing every day says to people, “I don’t know how to dress.” Luckily, it’s easy to create different looks from the same pieces you wore yesterday just by making a few small tweaks. We’ll explain how to do that in this article.

How to Wear One Outfit in Different Ways

If you’re on a budget or you’d like to make the most out of your wardrobe, you’ll find these 5 tips helpful.

1. Pick Neutral Colors as a Base

People will notice if you wear a bright red top three days in a row. If you want to hide the fact that you’re wearing the same clothes all the time, create a capsule wardrobe that has some clothing pieces that have neutral colors, like black pants and a white button-up shirt.

2. Choose Base Pieces You Can Style Differently

For example, you could pair a flannel shirt with skinny jeans for a more casual outfit, or with a pair of striped pants for a more dressed-up look.

If you’re a lady of style, you could try putting on different accessories, such as drop earrings, a pearl necklace, or carrying a clutch purse. You could also try wearing different shoes.

3. Choose Statement Accessories That Demand Attention

Statement accessories can draw attention away from what you’re wearing, so people won’t notice you’re wearing the same outfit you wore yesterday. Some of the ideas mentioned above are great options. You can also explore different styles of accessories depending on how dressy or casual your outfit is. 

4. Don’t Wear the Same Shoes

Shoes make a statement and set the tone for your outfit. Black booties create a more relaxed street style, where pink ballet flats create a more darling, classic look. Shoes create the vibe you’re going for and feel like a big enough switch to hide an outfit repeat. Try buying a few shoes of the same brand but in a different color if you want to wear the same type of shoes with new clothes.

5. Layer as Much as You Can

Jackets and sweaters do wonders for creating a different outfit. These layering pieces are strong visually, adding another element to your look that makes it more visually interesting and different. You’d be surprised how much difference an oversized blanket scarf and blazer can make.

The complete list of pieces you can layer include:

Blazers – These are wardrobe staples. You can wear them over white button-up shirts, plain t-shirts, turtlenecks, and sweaters, or over any outfit to make it more stylish. Although they’re a jacket, you don’t have to wear them as a top layer, particularly if it gets cold. You can easily layer them beneath your coat to add more warmth, and they’re great for adding more color and feel to your fall and winter ensemble. It’s also easy to make a casual outfit appear more professional.

Sweater Dresses – These are perfect to wear over camisoles, t-shirts and under jackets for a layer of warmth. The additional length makes many women feel more cozy. The best sweater dress length lies around the knee – they’re most flexible at this length. You can make it work like a dress, but also as a big sweater paired with jeans on cooler days. As the weather gets colder, you can wear sweater dresses with tights or over the knee boots and throw on a fur coat. They also go well with moto jackets, trench coats, and wool coats.

White Tank Tops – Even in fall, white tank tops can make a great bottom layer for outfits. You can wear it with jeans and a casual blazer for a casual look or a midi skirt if it’s warm enough.

Button-Down Shirts – These are an essential for summer as well as autumn and winter. You can wear them over dresses, or as tops with layers over them. You can even wear it with a turtleneck underneath.

Cardigan Sweaters – Cardigans are among the most versatile items you’ll ever own. You can almost wear them year-round, and it’s a great layering essential for fall and winter. They can be used as a mid-layer piece to cover dresses, camisoles, and bottom layer for warmth. Have a few long and short cardigans in your wardrobe for some versatility.

Turtlenecks – Turtlenecks are versatile base layers that can be worn under many different pieces. To make it a base layer, ensure the turtleneck’s material isn’t too bulky, and pick something breathable to keep things comfortable when the weather gets warm.

Faux Leather Jackets – Faux leather jackets are the epitome of fall fashion. It’s a timeless wardrobe staple, plus it makes a perfect layering item. During warmer weather, wear it as outerwear, but also as a midl-ayer as the weather gets colder.

Camisoles – Wear camisoles underneath tops and sweaters during the fall and winter. Layering camisoles under cardigans and other warmer layers is a great way to continue wearing your favorite summer camis and tank tops into fall.

Wearing One Outfit in Different Ways

That’s how you can wear one outfit in different ways. If you follow these tips, even when you’re in a style rut, you’ll be able to come up with plenty of ideas in your closet. The first step is to take a look at the clothes you have from last year, and see if there are new ways you can wear them so they follow the latest trend and still fit your personal style. If not, look at your closet, see what’s in and what’s out, and work from there. You can also check out this blonde fashion blogger for more ideas on how to dress attractively as a woman.
