One Short, 3 Ways

8 Jun

Getting to wear 1 piece various ways is like hitting the jackpot. It feels as though you are truly getting the most out of your investment, but  thinking of  ways to mix and match can be challenging. When doing Wardrobe Consultations, clients often ask, “what is another way I can wear this?” Referring to a top, skirt, pants etc.. that they would like to re-purpose and wear differently.  I love answering this question. It helps them see their wardrobe pieces in a new light, and helps them get the most out of their existing wardrobe!

Below is an example of how to re-wear an item that may seem to have only 1 outfit option. Mixing up patterned pieces beyond the usual combinations can be a bit intimidating, but currently I love throwing out the common suspects and throwing in some twists. Bright colors look amazing against muted color patterned shorts, as does another pattern that is complimentary, but does not compete with the original item. I think these shorts are completely perfect for a BBQ, the Beach or even a Night Out!

1. Pink Tank $44

2. Shorts $78 (same short for all 3 outfits)

3. Slip On Sandal $14.80

4. T-Shirt $95

5. Bikini Top $75

6. Flat Sandal $140

7.  Yellow Blouse $76

8. Wedges $206.50

    Love this! I can’t decide which outfit is my favorite. I’m going to go with #1 or #2. This is perfect for us teachers who do not have a lot to spend on clothes in the summer 🙂
