STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Mix, Match, and Be Merry!

Style Advice of the Week

We all stand in front of our wardrobe distressed over having nothing to wear — the pink sweater with the pearls you wore yesterday, the leather shorts you wore to your best friend’s dinner, the cobalt blue dress with the drop waist you wore on Monday… nothing seems right. We all experience this ‘wardrobe exhaustion’ — the symptoms are longing sighs, wrinkled noses and outfit repetition.

You don’t have to break the bank to avoid wardrobe exhaustion, fellow Fashionisto/as. Try mixing and matching your clothes to give them some new flair. The secret lies in layering anything to everything — tuck sweaters into skirts, pair a skirt over a dress, wear matchstick pants under tunics, wear jackets as tops —the list goes on. I dare you to try something that’s not conventional!

This Fashionista declared her love for recreating new outfits by layering pieces that people normally wouldn’t choose, like skirts with dresses, thereby creating a whole new look. Skirts under dresses gives a peplum vibe, and skirts over dress instantly give you an allusion of a new shirt. And you didn’t even spend a penny!

This Fashionista is working her magic in this turquoise patterned number — a beautiful backless patterned dress with cap sleeves. While the dress is short and light, one can easily alter its appearance with one simple piece. You got it — a long skirt will do the trick. This Fashionista paired the dress with a bright colorful mid-calf length pleated skirt. While the outfit is simple and effective, she adds some awesome accessories to bring the magic — a monogramed leather cuff and gold chunky vintage inspired hoops. On her feet are little tan skimmers with cut out detailing on the sides to give the outfit some needed radiance.
