5 ways to reinvent your wardrobe (without shopping!)

Some time ago I made the video in the bottom of this post, with 5 tips on how to reinvent your wardrobe without shopping for new clothes. Some of you may out even have watched the video, and I know that some of you are not so keen on watching youtube videos in general – therefore, I thought I wanted to gather up the tips from the video in a post a well, since it is in fact one of my most popular ones. There’s even a newer tip in this post as well! So of you like to express yourself through fashion and style, then you can learn all bout how to maintain everything that makes it so much fun while working in a more sustainable mindset at the same time!

For noget tid siden lavede jeg videoen nederst i dette indlæg med 5 tips til, at forny din garderobe uden at købe nyt tøj. Nogle af jer har måske slet ikke set videoen og jeg ved også der sidder nogle derude som ikke er så meget til ‘det der Youtube’. Så derfor tænkte jeg, at jeg ville opsummere mine tips i dette indlæg, eftersom det er én af mine mest populære videoer. Der har sågar også sneget sig et helt nyt tip med ind her. Så hvis du elsker at udtrykke dig gennem mode og stil, så læs her hvordan du bevarer dét der gør det så sjovt, samtidig med du har et mere bæredygtigt mindset omkring det!

1. Research and gather up inspiration.

I love using both Pinterest and Instagram, and I gather up lots of inspiration for looks I know that I can recreate with things I already have in my wardrobe – or at least something similar. This is mainly how I use these apps, because then I can use them as a reference and a way to look up new outfits when I need inspiration on how to style my wardrobe in new, exciting ways than I normally would myself. You can follow me on Pinterest HERE, where you’ll find lots of style inspiration in general, but of course also inspiration on how to structure your own Pinterest account.

Jeg er storforbruger af både Pinterest og Instagram, og elsker at indsamle inspiration til looks, som jeg ved jeg kan efterligne med ting fra min egen garderobe – eller i det mindste noget lignende. Det er primært den måde jeg bruger apps som disse på, for på den måde kan jeg bruge dem som opslagsværk når jeg mangler inspiration til, at style min garderobe på nye måder end hvad jeg måske selv normalt ville gøre. Du kan følge mig på Pinterest HER, hvor der er masser af stilinspiration at hente, men selvfølgelig også inspiration til hvordan du selv kan strukturere dine egne Pinterest boards.

 

2. Shop your own closet.

When you have a capsule wardrobe (read more HERE), you’ll store away a bunch of items every seasons. When the seasons change you’ll then get an opportunity to shop your own closet. It may sound weird storing away perfectly good items that you actually love using, but if the temperatures don’t fit for you to be able to wear if anyway, why keep it in your everyday wardrobe? give it a break and you may experience the joy of getting it back out once the seasons change. Also it will do your clothes some good, giving it a break because it will elongate its lifetime.

Når man har en capsule wardrobe (læs mere HER), så gemmer man hver sæson nogle items fra sin garderobe væk. Når sæsonerne så skifter, så får du faktisk mulighed for, at ‘shoppe’ dine egne ting igen, og ofte kan gensynsglæden være stor. Det lyder måske mærkeligt at man gemmer ting væk, som man i bund og grund er glad for at bruge – men hvis temperaturerne fx ikke rigtig passer til, at kunne bruge et bestemt produkt, hvorfor så have det liggende i din hverdagsgarderobe? Giv det en pause og oplev selv glæden ved, at finde det frem igen når sæsonerne skifter. Dit tøj har i øvrigt også godt af, at få en pause fra dagligt brug – så holder det længere.

 

3. It’s all in the details.

I love spicing up my looks with jewelry, accessories and makeup no matter if it’s on a normal everyday or to a special occasion. Looking at a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt that may sound like the world’s most boring outfit but if you add heels, a handfuld og folden jewelry, a great bag and a red lipstick to the look it’s so much more. Little details make a huge difference!

Jeg elsker at peppe mine looks op med smykker, accessories og makeup uanset om vi snakker hverdag eller fest. Når man ser på et par blå jeans og en hvid t-shirt lyder det måske som verdens kedeligste outfit, men hvis du pepper det op med et par stiletter, en håndfuld guldsmykker, en lækker taske og en rød læbestift så er det noget helt andet. Små detaljer gør virkelig underværker!

 

4. Renew what you already own.

There are many ways in which you can renew old clothes – if you want, you can keep an eye on my “fix your wardrobe” series on Youtube right HERE. I’ll gather the clothes i have in my wardrobe somehow and then occasionally spend a few hours fixing it all. Maybe there’s a pair of jeans that need to be taken up or in, a button missin in a jacket, a jumper that needs to have it’s pilling removed with a cashmere comb, a couple of shoes that need to go to the local cobblers or the like. You can read my best tips on how to care for your wardrobe right HERE.

Der er mange måder at forny gammelt tøj på – du kan bl.a. hente inspiration i min serie “fix your wardrobe” på Youtube lige HER. Jeg samler gerne tøj der trænger til at blive fornyet og så tager jeg en dag et par timer ud af min kalender til, at få det fixet. Måske er det et par jeans der skal lægges op eller sys ind, en knap der mangler i en jakke, en striktrøje der trænger til en tur med en kashmir kam, et par sko der trænger til at komme forbi skomageren eller lignende. Du kan desuden læse mine bedste tips til, at passe på og pleje din garderobe lige HER.

 

5. Use a ‘daily outfits’ app.

This is my newest addiction; an app that helps you generate daily outfits all on it’s own and that helps you keeping tracks of everything you have in your wardrobe in general. You can get more info on my experience with the app in THIS video, otherwise I’m working on a post that will compare the 3 most popular apps that provide this service, so you can wait around for that one if you’re not keen on the video. The app I use is called Cladwell, and I use it as a tool to put together cool looks from my everyday capsule but also my occasional wear capsule. I’ve put in my entire wardrobe in the app, and in that way it can help my decide what to wear each morning. It’s such a cool way to get most out of your wardrobe and get help on how to style a certain items in new, fresh ways!

Dette er min nyeste afhængighed; en app der kan generere daglige outfits automatisk og som hjælper dig med, at holde styr på din garderobe. Du kan høre lidt mere om selve app’en i denne video, og ellers er der et indlæg på trapperne som sammenligner 3 forskellige apps der tilbyder denne service, så du kan få ekstra hjælp til at holde styr på din garderobe. Jeg bruger en app der hedder Cladwell, og jeg bruger den både som værktøj til, at hjælpe mig med at sammensætte lækre looks fra min hverdags capsule men også gå-i-byen looks. I app’en har jeg registreret hele min garderobe og på den måde kan den så sammensætte looks til mig hver morgen. Det er en smart måde, at få mest muligt ud af sin garderobe på og style et bestemt item på nye overraskende måder!

    Hello! I’ve recently discovered your content and I’m a fan of your great style!
    I love all your tips and I also will include one that works really well for me. I usually look for some outfit inspiration in the lookbooks of brands like Mango, Violeta Mango, H&M or J.Crew. I write down the name of the item I want to wear (like trench or basic tee) and I discover a bunch of ideas in how they create the looks with basic pieces that I already own.

    Greetings from Spain!

    Hi Signe,
    I love your site and videos! I was feeling very unhappy with my wardrobe for many years and now I am turning 40 I really need to sort it out. Your advice has been so helpful 🙂 One of the problems I have though is that I am pear shaped – my hips are not too wide but my bottom sticks out a bit. I look ok from the front, but a I look a disaster from the side and behind! I have read all sorts of guides, saying to draw attention to your top half with ruffles, statement jewelry, etc, these are too fussy for me. I much prefer clean understated clothes. Do you have any advice? x
