Transitioning Outfits Seasonally


If you live in a mild climate like Virginia, learning how to transition outfits seasonally is a big money saver. In this post, I'll give tips on keeping 80% of your wardrobe year round. Essentially, there are 5 main ways to transition your wardrobe. Investing in these 5 things can really save you in the long run. 

5 Tips for Transitioning Outfits Seasonally 

1. Layers
       - Buy neutral jackets in navy/denim, brown, and black ($18 at Goodwill).
       - Extra layers look 'warmer'. Deborah and Company has a great layering shell. ($15)
2. Tights
       - Neutral colored tights look wintry and keep you warm. I have pairs in grey, black, and brown.        
       - Most stores have them for $5 a pair.
3. Shoes
       - A pair of neutral colored boots are your best investment! ($30)
       - Black or brown Keds can be worn during summer and winter. ($15)
4. Hats
       - Bring back hats! They're all over the stores and can be found for around $15-20.
5. Accessories
       - A few dark colored scarves add layers and keep you warm. ($20)
       - Wide belts in black or brown define the waist. ($10)
       - Dark colored head bands or clips. 

Total Cost = $138
Average woman's annual clothing expenditures = $960
Total savings (assuming 80% clothing reuse) = $630

  3. Visiting from Growing Home Blog -- very very creative, I like how you have repurposed the clothes in with your seasons. SW Missouri weather is kind of like this VA weather, yet we sometimes can go through all 4 seasons in one day though. Thanks!

  5. Those are so really nice outfits and your ideas are great. I wear most of my clothes year round except for those items that are heavier and hotter this time of year.
