SIX WINTER OUTFIT PROPOSALS (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)
Today I'll share with you six February outfits. Styling our clothes in Winter can often be fun because there are so many layering options. Moreover, we shall talk about the benefit of rewearing clothing items and why it is good for the environment. I always enjoyed reading about different ways of wearing one clothing item because it always seemed like a great way to maximize and shop one's closet. I have published many posts that could be placed in sustainable fashion category during my eight years as a blogger. I think by now, most people know that the textile (fashion) industry is one of the biggest industrial polluters. By shopping our closets and being less wasteful with clothes, we're are also helping the environment. Plus, it can be a lot of fun. I'm definitely not the only blogger that is talking about rewearing and restyling clothes, nor was I the first one to do it.
If you are looking for more sustainable fashion ideas, you might them on the following blogs, for example:
There are many other bloggers who link up their old outfits showing different ways to wear one clothing items or promote sustainable fashion by wearing vintage or second hand. From top of my head, there is also Kezzie, Melanie from Bag and a Beret and Ann from Polyester Princess blog.
I wore this outfit earlier this month, when the temperatures were higher and I was able to give up my winter coats for this fabulous vintage leather jacket (an item quite older than me). I paired it with a grey dress I wear often, a second hand red scarf and caramel boots (I wore more than forty times!). A sustainable outfit for sure. The only item that is relatively new is the bag that I purchased around the end of December last year. I purchased several bags in a shop owned by a friend on that occasion, apart from that I haven't done any shopping in months. I'm genuinely enjoying shopping my closet.
OUTFIT PROPOSAL #2- SKI JACKET WORN WITH A GREY DRESS AND BOOTS
I'm rewearing not one but two items from the previous outfit: the grey dress and the heeled caramel boots. If you see that an outfit formula is working, why not repeat it? The only thing I changed about this outfit is that I switched by leather jacket for my checkered Alpine pro jacket ( I showed you 28 ways to wear this jacket here). Even the location is the same, beautiful Mostar city.
Bellow is an outfit I wore to visit Buna and Blagaj. I styled my old reliable leopard print dress with a long black cardi and wore a magenta coat on the top. I completed the outfit with comfortable walking boots, a cute bag and a sleek hairstyle. On that day, we also took some photographs with Mostar in the background. I love exploring Herzegovina, it's such a stunning region.
OUTFIT PROPOSAL #4: MAGENTA COAT WORN WITH A BLUE SKIRT AND BOOTS.
This beautiful cobalt skirt doesn't get worn nearly enough (last time I wore it was back in 2015). There is no label on it, but I have a reason to believe it's vintage because I inherited it from a family member. I've been wearing this skirt a lot this February to make up for the fact that it was forgotten for five long years. This time I paired it with a scarf I got from Ely and a cute beanie I got from my husband. My magenta coat is officially 'green' with more than 30 wears (post with all of them coming up soon!) Anyhow, this was a fun look and it kept me warm. Neretva river has gotten so big with all the rains!
Today I'm also showing you two ways to wear this short camel coat. A great way to jazz up a coat is to style it with a fun scarf, shawl or a pashmina. This is also a great way to add some colour into your wardrobe. If you don't have enough coloured or pattern coats, remember that you can add colour to any coat by throwing something over it. Another item you can accessorize is boots. Here I wore my old boots with faux fur warmers that came with another pair of boots. You can accessorize your boots in a number of ways or you can simply pair them with fun leg warmers, tights or socks. Winter gives us many options for fun layering and makes rewearing things easy. I wore this cute outfit for a visit for Čapljina city. I always have a great time when I visit Čapljina.
OUTFIT NUMBER #6 : A CAMEL COAT WORN WITH A SEMI PLEATED SKIRT, COMFORTABLE WALKING BOOTS AND A BURGUNDY JACKET
Bellow you can see an outfit I wore to a visit to Široki brijeg city. As you can see, I rewore the camel coat from my previous outfit but also the brown boots I wore several times this month. I also wore a Bellissima semi pleated skirt, a burgundy jacket and pale blue skirt ( two items I bought in Mana, while I was still living on island Hvar last year). This proved to be warm and a practical outfit.
We went to Širiki Brijeg to visit my husband's friends, but we also stopped to take some photographs in front of one of the city's best know attraction, a beautiful historical catholic church dating back to 1905. This church dedicated to Assumption of Mary is located on a hill and offers a lovely panorama. Beside the church, you can also enjoy a visit to the friary and an accompanying museum. Moreover, an Academy of Fine Arts is located right next to the church.
As always, thank you for reading and visiting. How do you rewear or restyle items during Winter? Do you have any tips to share? Do you keep track of items you wore?
