Any style lover will know that the harsh reality of fashion is that the garments you might love don’t always love you back! That’s the relationship I have with shirts so as a general rule of thumb I stay away from them. To be fair to shirts, it’s not them that have the issue with me, those pesky buttons are the ones that prevent me from incorporating shirts in to my not so capsule wardrobe. However, I can always be swayed when it comes to clothing and occasionally I see a pattern or print which calls my name until I give in to buying.
So what do you do when you have an unrequited love with a piece of clothing? You think of a way to restyle it and make it work for you. If I find a shirt that I really like I keep it safe in my wardrobe until the summer months and re-purpose it as a cover-up; something I can use in place of a cardigan over a basic colourful vest or slightly buttoned over a dress to make it look like an outfit of separates.
Is there a type of clothing you would love to wear but don’t get on with or do you put a twist on things to make them work for you? Share your experiences in the comments section.
