How to Add New Style to Old Clothes
Hello! On behalf of TVlesson.com, I am a professional stylist Susan Bigsby with SusanBigsby.com. Remember when we only wore beaded tops and sequence for black tie events? Well, not anymore. Get in your closet. See what you have in there from years gone by and wear things new ways. Start to combine things in ways you never thought of doing before.
This is a strange thing for a lot of us because we are not used to doing that. But take a look at this beautiful top. This is a top I’ve had for probably 15 years. It is a very gorgeous designer top that I probably should have given away but never wore it because guess what? I did not go to many black tie events. Well, thank goodness I hung to it. Now, I wear it with my jeans jacket, a fabulous new wonderful big statement pin that looks terrific with this jeans jacket. The colors all go together and because of the way -- just a tip for you people who may have a big heavy brooch but it is hard to wear because you know how they weigh things down and they pull your clothing? Buy a little make-up sponge and put underneath that pin and adhere that pin to the under part of the jacket. It anchors that pin so it won’t fall down and weigh the piece down so that it destroys the look of the pin.
The whole combination and pair it with a pair of white jeans and some boots maybe or some bling shoes and you are good to go with a brand new look in brand new ways.
When you have beautiful pieces like this brooch, I like to use them in as many ways possible. So, why not dress it up this time and take it to a little bit more formal occasion? I happen to have these beautiful pearls that I made by the way. So, you may want to think about a bead class to learn how to do this. Apply that beautiful brooch to these pearls and what a different look and beautiful look that takes it to a very different place with the same beaded top that I had put with my jeans before. Add that beautiful pashmina, a lovely pair of slacks and shoes that coordinate with the whole outfit and you are ready for your event.
