Wear the Same Article of Clothing More Than One Way
This fall’s fashion scene is all about versatility. Discover multiple ways to wear a single garment.
Make your tops work with a pair of jeans as well as a skirt. Find a variety of accessories to compliment a dress. Learn to dress up a skirt as well as fit it into your casual attire. You don’t need a closet full of clothes this fall, just a creative approach to wear the same pieces in different of ways.
Polka Dot Top
Wear a ruffle polka-dot top with black skinny jeans and a sleek pair of booties. Or, wear it with a plaid skirt, knee high boots and sweater vest. Mix and Match further with bright and vibrant accessories or bottoms.
There isn’t anything more classic and clean than a crisp white button up worn with a pair of skinny jeans. To diversify this look, wear a rich colored suede bootie rather than the typical neutral boot or white sneaker. Then change the look by wearing it with an A-line skirt. Tuck in one side and add a simple necklace as an accessory. Mix and Match further with a variety of jackets, perhaps a jean jacket or camouflage coat.
The skirt of the fall season is definitely the midi. Dress it up with a form fitting shirt with delicate details such as pearl buttons. Dress it down with an oversized sweater and combat boots. Mix and Match further with a casual jacket, sneaks and a scarf.
Blazers are the go-to piece of clothing this summer. You can wear it as a jacket with just about anything. For a finished look, wear your blazer over a satin camisole with a pair of sleek trousers. For a rugged look, wear it over a playful body suit or oversized button-up with leggings and chunky boots. Mix and Match further with a pair of jeans and your favorite tee.
It’s easy to settle when it comes to a girly shirt with lots of frills and details. Instead of wearing it with a basic skirt or jeans, wear it with a structured pair of trousers and girly booties. Or wear it with a pair of leggings with a little bit of girly detail and pretty flats. Mix and Match further by wearing your shirt with a pencil skirt and complimentary colors in your accessories.
Dresses are the easiest way to get stuck in a fashion rut, but don’t let yourself settle into the same-old look. Take some clues from diverse styles. For a darker, more goth look, add lots of black accessories including a black jacket and Dr. Martin style boots. To create a “pretty meets punk” look, incorporate a beanie and some velvet heels. Mix and Match further by dressing up your dress with heels and delicate accessories or prep it out with oxfords and a sweater tied around your waist or shoulders.
