This outfit post revolves around one aspect of sustainable fashion that I want to concentrate more on which is upcycling. This will be an ongoing subject in outfit posts with specially upcycled pieces to bring new life into old clothes.
As you can see from the images above I have created a super cute bandeau crop top by chopping a simple jumpsuit in half. Yes it was that easy. I adored the style of the top but the rest of the jumpsuit just didn’t fit quite right so instead of selling it or throwing it away I saw potential for a new garment. I cut it and sewed the bottom of the zip together so the zipper would stop and that’s it.
I paired it with monochrome pieces to keep the focus on the crop and even looped half my shirt through the cut out and tied it so both tops are clearly visible but interestingly entwined.
Simple, effortlessly stylish and upcycled.
