(So you can wear your nice clothes more often)

This pant suit is quite old and is collecting dust in my closet. Which is a pity really, as it’s a nice suit from cool wool that fits me perfectly.. The reason really why I don’t wear it so often is because the suit feels a little formal for my day to day activities. I do not work in an office so don’t really have a need for very formal wear.

However, it’s a nice suit and I like to wear it more often. One way of accomplishing that is to wear really informal pieces with the suit, like this yoga top from Stella McCartney for Adidas. This way the look becomes more casual chic rather than formal chic and makes it appropriate for many ocasions!

Of course, the suit becomes more formal again, if you combine it with a chic bag and wear the jacket.

Why not be a bit more creative and see how you can either dress up or dress down some of the pieces in your wardrobe that you never wear for various reasons? Like those pieces you really like, but you never seem to have an occasion to wear them.

Do you wear your more formal wear very often? Which pieces of your wardrobe are collecting dust and would benefit from a bit of ‘informalising’ so you’ll wear them more often?
