I've prioritized re-wearing this 12 months – that's how I reinvented my outdated garments


I love shopping as much as the next person, but if I've learned anything this year, it's that you can do a lot with the items in your closet if you focus on putting them back on rather than something new right away to buy . I know that wearing your clothes several times can be an easy task, but as someone who enjoys experimenting with new trends and styles, it can be tempting to quickly click "Add to Cart" instead of looking at items you already have.

I cut my purchases for the first time earlier in the year just realizing I wasn't going to go out that much, and when I sat down to look at my closet, I found outfit options that I would never have may have thought earlier. The most surprising part of it all? The pieces I wore the most weren't exactly the "trendiest" ones, they were basics that enhanced my overall look. In a world of social media, it can be easy to always want what's new and Instagram-worthy instead of investing in staples that you will carry for years or basic items that will collect dust in your closets.

It's my job to share my fashion revelations here at Who What Wear. So I went through my Instagram and camera roll to find the pieces I wore the most and shared them with you below, along with all the different choices I styled each one. Keep scrolling to take a look. You may find surprising new outfit ideas for pieces that you haven't worn in a while.
