Instagram can be a place for bright, shiny new things. But with this new year, there's something we should give more of our attention to: Fashion consumption and the environment. Don't get us wrong: We love our fast fashion. But with that in mind, here's a New Year's Resolution, no matter how late, you may want to consider: To re-wear, re-style and re-love what's already in our closets. Besides, repetition is reputation—and isn't there something appealing in having a signature?
Here are five brave ladies to take cues from:
Leandra Medine a.k.a. the Man Repeller
Leandra is not afraid of a dated look, so it should come as no surprise that she posted a photo of herself wearing the same Chanel jacket—albeit to very different occasions: the former to fashion week; the latter, a wedding—just two days apart. Versatile and timeless—you can't deny that the tweed jacket is a true classic.
Anne showcases the versatility of a gray sweatshirt by wearing her oversize Acne number with shorts and with culottes. The style move takes it from cute on a chilly day to casual and cozy at the airport.
Knowing how to milk an It accessory when she sees one, Kryz wears this black leather driver's hat three different ways. One quick styling tip get more bang out of your back (pun intended): Wear it backwards.
Paper bag pants are back and can totally transform a lazy-day look. Daryl wears hers at the beach with a maillot and in the busy streets of Hong Kong with a No. 21 tee and a Prada Velvet Astrology Cahier Bag.
The girl loves her body-hugging, off-shoulder tops. They feature prominently on her feed in various colors—black, pink, striped, you name it! Not only is it flatttering, it's versatile, too. Pile on the add-ons (Chie did it with heels, sunnies and fishnet socks) to dress it up, or dress it down with a pair of slides, the possibilities are endless.
