When I did a quick poll on Instagram, almost 100% of you said you like to see items remixed. I found it really interesting that over 40% of you said you also like exact links as opposed to similar items. I’m doing my best to remix items while the exact pieces are still available. I do this often in real life, but it’s not always as easy to get them blogged in time before they sell out. However, today I am remixing this sweater (now on sale!) and this plaid top (available in multiple colors and super affordable). Both are favorite pieces of mine, have been worn recently, and are still in stock. Win!
Do you remember this sweater shown here with flares and a leopard scarf? And this plaid top worn alone for our pumpkin patch tip? The items look totally different layered and paired with my OTK boots. It is amazing how much more wear you can get out of your closet by simply layering pieces that you have previously only worn alone. I encourage you to think creatively!
How to Get More Wear Out of Your Closet by Layering
- Start looking at pieces as multi-season and consider creative layering options. – Sleeveless dresses are really good candidates for this (as seen here). Take a sleeveless dress you usually only wear during the summer, add a fitted long sleeve top underneath, tights, and boots, and you have a perfect winter outfit!
- As the weather cools, start adding a layer onto tops you’ve worn alone before like I have done today. If your top is long enough, let it hang out the bottom. If not, just tuck it in.
- Play with patterns and textures to keep things interesting.
