You may have your go-to uniform set. (This editor can't get enough of his jeans-tee-jacket look.) But variety is the spice of life, right? So adding something new into your dressing routine could be just what you need to make your closet feel new again. But don't worry—this doesn't mean going out and buying a completely new wardrobe. It's easy to reinvent your outfit using items you probably already own.
Below, we're highlighting seven easy styling ideas, using standby items like the classic black belt, denim jacket, everyday skirt, and more. Keep scrolling to find new outfit inspiration and make your closet feel new again.
You probably wear your leather jacket normally or draped over your shoulders, but it's easy to reinvent it by adding a belt to it like you would a dress or flowy top.
Have a blazer and trousers in a similar color? Make your own suit and give your standard style a break. Don't worry, the hues don't have to be exact; they just need to be in the same color family and go together.
Available in sizes DK 34 to DK 42.
Instead of looping your go-to scarf as normal, go for something dramatic like tying it tightly around your neck and letting the ends hang down low. It'll add interest and drama to even the most basic outfit.
Give your favorite dress new life by layering over a skirt for extra dimension.
Available in sizes FR 34 to FR 44.
You may be used to tying your favorite chambray shirt around your waist, but how about a jacket? If you go for a style that's lighter-weight, it'll feel the same but look cool and updated, especially when paired with coordinating culottes.
Available in sizes XS to XL.
Give a flirty dress a tougher vibe by topping it off with something like a rugged camo jacket.
Available in sizes XS to L.
Your robe? Yep, it can totally work as a jacket too when paired with separates like jeans and a crisp blouse.
Available in one size.
