Ditch This, Opt for That

We’re five months into 2022, and with the seasons changing, we figure it’s time to weed out our wardrobe. So today, we’re talking about clothes we intend on ditching – and what we’re opting for instead. (Of course, we’re all about being sustainable, so when we say “ditch,” we mean donating your unwanted items to a local nonprofit or selling them online for some extra cash.)

Ditch: Skin-Tight Pieces. Opt for: Loose Pieces.

Maybe COVID is to blame, but we’ve become comfortable wearing loose-fitting clothing, so we’re ditching any outdated tailored pieces taking up space in our closets. Who wants tight garments when baggy jeans, oversized sweaters, and flowy dresses are the pieces to wear now?

Our Pick: H&M Oversized Graphic T-Shirt ($17.99, shop here)

Ditch: Oversized Sunglasses. Opt for: Tiny Sunglasses.

Because we are living for the ’90s/Y2K revival, we’re ditching those oversized cat-eye sunglasses (so 2010s) and swapping them for tiny frames. These specs block the sun fashionably while resting lightly on our face.

Our Pick: Lulus Pep Talk Cat-Eye Pearl Sunglasses ($18, shop here)

Ditch: Uncomfortable Stilettos. Opt for: Comfortable Platforms and Block Heels.

Why were stilettos ever even a thing!? They’re uncomfortable and can cause permanent foot damage. Today is all about platforms and block heels, which we could walk comfortably in for days.

Our Pick: Steve Madden Trixie Black Leather Platform Heels ($129.95, shop here)

Ditch: Matching Sweatsuits. Opt for: Ribbed Knit Sets.

Don’t get us wrong – a matching sweatsuit is convenient for coffee runs, but we love the more put-together version: the ribbed knit set. Sophisticated matching sets are ideal for lazy outings where you still value looking nice, like dinner with friends or a casual date night.

Our Pick: Reformation Zayne Ribbed Two-Piece Set ($178, shop here)

Ditch: All Things Sheer. Opt for: All Things Opaque.

Now, if you love to turn heads, we’re about it! But these days, staying covered up is more professional – and we never have to worry about freezing at the office.

Our Pick: ASOS 4th & Reckless Blazer ($79, shop here)
