Top tips to refresh your Winter wardrobe. Get organised for the chillier months and give it a ta-dah moment with the #ACEWinterRefresh challenge! This is a sponsored post. ACE kindly sent us some of their ACE for Colours powder to try. I was not financially compensated, and the opinions expressed are completely my own based on my experience. I’ll only ever tell you I love something if I do!
Autumn has arrived in a flurry of gold and red. As leaves crunch underfoot and the air takes on a bonfire scent, I’ve noticed a faint chill that has sent me scurrying into the garage to find my winter wardrobe. The winter wardrobe that has been stuffed in a holdall for the last six months or so thanks to our out-of-box living arrangement that’s been in place during our home renovation.
Pulling out the chunky knits and cosy jumpers, it strikes me that the clothes are all looking rather forlorn. They needed bringing back to life. Could yours do with a pep talk too? Refresh your winter wardrobe by following these simple steps and using an ACE secret weapon!
Fashion show your clothes
If you’re like me, in the last six months your fashion taste will have changed. There will be the odd item that you pull out with a quizzical pondering as to why you ever owned it. Try on outfits to decide on your ‘must keeps’ and the items to be donated to your sister/friend/the charity shop. Better yet, pop along to a car boot to recycle them into this years’ fashion triumph!
Accessories give your well-worn outfits a new lease of life. I love a casually donned scarf for warmth and colour. Necklaces work wonders too, although mine are being saved until Harmie is less likely to yank one from my neck!
Mix and match and layer it up
Scrap everything that you think you know and spend time looking at your winter selection with fresh eyes. Does that black skirt have to go with the mustard jumper? Could your favourite knit go over the navy dress to create a whole new look? Why not try bringing elements of your summer wardrobe in, layered with tights, knits and turtlenecks. Layering seems to be all the rage at the moment and I can see why; added warmth in a recycled outfit – win, win!
Break free from trends
Here’s a biggy. Don’t let the latest trends prevent you from wearing what you love. No-one is awarding style points at the pre-school drop off (even if it feels like that) and you won’t be thanking yourself for traipsing around the local playgroup in a very fashionable, but very uncomfortable, pair of knee highs. You’re great. Be you! And wear your faves in the process.
The final ta-dah with Ace
Now for your secret weapon: give your winter clothes a ta-dah moment using ACE for colours powder.
The brand-new ACE for Colours Powder reinvigorates clothes, using stain-removing powers to bring coloured garments back to life. Plus, unlike other stain removers, it comes in a plastic-free fully recyclable carton which is a big yes from me!
Just pop the powder in to the main wash dispenser of your machine and you’re good to go! I love the fresh scent and the touch of extra brightness that ACE gives our clothes. Plus, I am forever failing to spot stains on the kids’ clothes so it’s stain removal powers are so handy too.
Why not try the #ACEWinterRefresh challenge for yourself? I’d love to hear your top tips too!
