Wearing old clothes in a different way is definitely the way to deal with a stagnant closet. I made that term up, but it refers to a closet that has the same contents for months and years. Due to practicality, among other reasons, people cannot (and are not expected to) buy new clothes every so often. I, myself, am an advocate of ‘recycling’ clothes and of appreciating ‘what you have.’ As I’d say, “Make do of what you have and stop harboring the things that you don’t have.” It won’t do you good, I guarantee you.
By wearing clothes in different ways (tucked in, tied up, worn over or under another piece of clothing), you give yourself a whole bunch of reason to love it, despite it being in your closet for years. Not saying that you should loathe your old belongings. It’s just that (admit it) there are instances when you see the same stuff in your closet, you feel a bit sad (?) or even discouraged to make an effort to dress up.
Top - Mango
Tank top - Mango
Pants - DressDiaries Shop

Ring - Mauve
The formula to dressing up is that ‘there’s no actual formula.’ Living life in style doesn’t require you to be in brand new pieces all the time. It’s about wearing what you have with confidence.
