Every now and then I get extremely bored with my dresses and whatnots, and I get the urge to buy something new just to feel somewhat fresh. My closet is however stuffed with clothes, so I don’t really need anything “new”, I just have to get creative with what I’ve got. Imagination and creativity is key, everyone knows that, but when you find yourself tearing of your hair looking for something new and inspiring in your wardrobe, try this:
put it on backwards!
I find that sometimes it looks even better that way, and I’m not lying when I say that I do it at least once every week. Even if it looks silly to begin with, try it, and you’ll be surprised to see it might actually work.
This gray dress shows off all the “good stuff” if I wear it as it is supposed; but, if I put it on backwards it looks cute, not sexy. Adding the vest enhances this cuteness.

In picture number two I wore my Vila dress backwards, just because it has this image-pattern in the front. This gave it a clean look, and blended perfectly in with my other items.
Vila dress backwards, Vila sheer blouse, Gifted pearls, Nelly.com hat, Cubus socks, DinSko white shoes
Another example is this over-sized plaid shirt. I wore it as a dress and added a belt, which gave it a cute kind of edge, so it didn’t really need anything else to it. Comfortable too.
Ellos shirt, KappAhl blazer, Cubus scarf, X-it shoes, Old necklace, Random tights, DIY belt from grandma
Here I wore a sheer black shirt backwards, just because I thought it looked better.
Vintage maxi-skirt, Ellos sheer drape-detailed blouse, Vintage nude silk-bra, H&M faux-leather jacket, Cubus scarf, Random belt, GoJane booties.
So, what I’m getting at here is just try putting it on backwards. I know there are bloggers out there that have done this plenty of times, and since sharing is caring – I thought I should.
FYI: This does not work with shoes, and I do not recommend trying it :p
