Even though I can’t really say this winter feels like it was here for ages, it does feel so long since I bought this camel cable knit sweater. Remember how I wore it with my vinyl pants in autumn? Anyway, I feel I had this sweater for ages now. You know what I mean. It feels so old. And I got this urge to get a new sweater. But you know what? I’m not getting a new sweater this time.

#3 TIPS TO MAKE YOUR OLD SWEATER LOOK NEW

So how to make your old sweater look new and your outfit always fashionable. Well, yes, everything new should always look fashionable too, right? Or at least stylish. We will go for stylish this time. As this is a mid-seasonal classic outfit. Ps. If you want to check on the outfit that is always, I mean it, always fashionable, head on here. After you check my tip on how to wear your old knit sweater like it was new, of course.

Ups, did I say it was just 1 tip? Well, there are actually 3. After I got that tip from my French friend, I decided to dig in this, and à la fin came up with #3 tips that will make your staple outfits look new. And no, no laundry & wool detergents included. Although having a good washing machine and the right detergent helps too. I learned my lesson in Montreal. Only one thing, do not wash your favourite clothes in dorm laundry!

Anyway, about taking care of your clothes another time, first comes first.

WEAR YOUR OLD CABLE KNIT SWEATER LIKE IT’S BRAND NEW BY FOLLOWING THESE 3 TIPS

#1 STLE IT WITH DOUBLE-BREASTED WOOL COAT

Yes, it must be a double-breasted wool coat. Why? Because it’s the most elegant outwear. And you must style your old sweater with something elegant if you want it to look like it was new.

#2 GO FOR LIGHT COVER AND DARK BOTTOM

Regardless the colour of your sweater, although I still think the camel is the one to wear, you should style it with something dark and something light. To make sure your sweater stands out in between. The best way to do this is by wearing a light pastel coat or light jacket and dark bottom. And of course a white bag and black shoes. Well, it seems that accessories do matter after all. But what is worth you don’t need new ones.

#3 WEAR IT WITH EDGY CLASSICS

This might sound surprising, but you should actually wear your old sweater with classics instead of something new and trendy. Remember, it’s the sweater you want to make it look like new. So match it with your wardrobe staples. In short, with the basics, you have had for years. But not any basics. Only the edgy ones. Like my indigo straight cut jeans.

#* GET ACCESSORIES AND RED LIPS

Finally, if my #3 tips don’t do much, just get some accessories and red lips. A new bag never disappoints, right?

Well, in case not even a bag does its work, then get yourself a dog. Isn’t this one just adorable?

    Thanks for sharing this post. I loved how you restyled your sweater. I do the same with things in my closet, and I guess with everything I own. I am a thrift store and vintage fashion blogger. I like taking old and making it new again. Great photos!!

    I love this! And that coat! 😍

    These are really great tips! I really try to restyle certain pieces in different ways too! It’s always so fun and I feel it’s so wasteful to just throw clothing away! On a side note, I LOVE your coat. The color is so gorgeous! 🙂

    xo, Chloe
