Are you looking to jazz up your wardrobe a bit? Buying all new things may be impossible, but adding a few new items to your wardrobe is a great alternative! Whether you like dresses, shirts, skirts, or new accessories, we have some ideas for you to enhance your wardrobe! Here are a few ways to mix and match new Sweet Salt pieces with items you already have.
Layering tees are one of the most versatile items you can add to your wardrobe. They come in several different colors as well as a few different cuts and styles. Not only can these tees be worn alone with jeans and skirts, they are also great for layering when you want to make outfits more modest. If you have a dress that doesn’t have full sleeves or shows more skin than you’re comfortable with, just wear a layering tee underneath. You can also wear a layering tee under a sheer top or a button-up shirt to ensure you are as covered as you want to be.
Layering tees will help you feel more comfortable and modest. Whether they are worn as a standalone shirt or with clothes that you might not otherwise be able to wear, layering tees are a must-have!
Graphic tees are incredibly versatile and are a fun way to express yourself and show off your personality! Graphic tees can be paired with almost anything. They can be mixed and matched with skirts for a fun, funky look or paired with jeans and shorts that you already own. You might even try layering one of these tees over the top of a dress for a unique, hybrid style.
When mixing and matching graphic tees, stick to colors and designs that you love so you’ll feel confident enough to mix and match them with different patterns and colors.
It’s always good to have a few dressier tops in your wardrobe. These tops can be worn with skirts for church, dress pants for important meetings or presentations, or paired with jeans for a dressy-casual look.
If you’re pairing a dressy top with jeans, consider adding a pair of wedges or heels and a nice handbag to elevate the look.
Skirt extenders are incredible! If you’ve never used a skirt extender, you’re in for a treat. Do you have a skirt that has shrunk a bit? Or you’ve gotten a bit taller? Maybe you’re looking to lengthen your favorite skirt? Look no further—skirt extenders are your answer! Skirt extenders are used like a slip, but they usually feature beautiful lace on the bottom hem to add length while still being stylish. Not only are skirt extenders both lovely and modest but they can be used for more than just skirts! You can also throw them under your favorite dresses as slips or extenders as well.
Looking for a way to dress up your T-shirts, blouses, and basics? A new skirt is the perfect addition to your closet. Look for a pattern you love or something in solid colors to mix and match with patterned shirts.
When choosing skirts, stick closely to colors that are similar to shades you already have or go for complementary colors. That way, your skirts will go well with clothing items you have in your closet.
If you’re looking to get some new colors added to your wardrobe, grab a color wheel and look for a complementary or a triadic color scheme. Color schemes are a unique way to pair colors together for graphic design, interior decorating, and clothing. (There are lots of resources if you want to learn more about the color wheel and color schemes!)
Pants and Shorts
While pants and shorts can be a pain to shop for at times (no one likes trying on jeans over and over again), they are one of the most versatile items you can buy and add to your wardrobe. Most pants and shorts can be worn with any tops that you have, so, if you’re looking for the most versatile thing to add to your wardrobe, bottoms are it!
Adding in Accessories
Adding accessories can be a game-changer when it comes to outfits and making what you have look new. Adding jewelry, shoes, and handbags can entirely change the way an outfit looks and feels!
If you’re looking to wear jeans somewhere but you want to look fancy, one great way to up your outfit game is to add jewelry. Adding a fancier set of earrings and a necklace can dress up any outfit. Just snag a cute jewelry set, or mix and match a necklace and some earrings with a basic tee and a pair of jeans, and you’ll be able to go from casual to dressy in minutes.
If you love handbags, then we’ve got great news for you! Handbags are a great investment for your wardrobe. They’re one size fits all and can be paired with everything in your closet. For example, our shoulder handbag is a neutral color and has beautiful detailing. You can wear this with jeans and a tee or with a dress for church. This handbag can dress up or down, and because it’s a neutral color, it will go with almost any outfit you put together.
While Sweet Salt doesn’t sell shoes online, shoes are a great way to dress up an outfit. If you grab one of our dressier blouses, like this cute ruffle-sleeve shirt, with jeans and a fancier pair of shoes, your outfit will automatically look more dressed up! Heels and wedges, as mentioned above, are favorites, but most dressy shoes will elevate your look from casual to fancy!
We get it: updating your wardrobe can be tricky. It doesn’t have to be, though, if you build from the foundations of items you already have and love. Add in a few beautiful and high-quality Sweet Salt pieces to round it out, and you’ve got yourself a winning wardrobe!
