Remixing items in my wardrobe is something I love doing. A couple of recent purchases have integrated so well into my closet that I wanted to show a way I mixed and matched them from a dressy look to a casual look.
My dressy look is this patterned dress from Macy’s that I featured here. By pairing it with a large color beaded necklace, strappy heels, & a gold beaded clutch, the dress takes on a party flair. I wore this to my family Christmas party this last Saturday and it was so comfortable. It was wonderful to see everyone and catch up with what they have been up to. I finally took charge as the photographer this year and yelled out to this group of approximately 50 people that we should do a dramatic photo like Solange Knowles wedding and I got blank stares back. That is when I realized that no one really had no clue what I was talking about. Oh well.
By placing this burgundy Ruche sweater that I featured here over the Macy’s dress, it takes on a little more casual look. Now this dress looks like a fun pencil skirt. The necklace picks up the orange and green in the dress and draws that color up to the top. Brown wedge booties, a large snake print clutch, gold wire cuff, & coral beaded statement ring complete this fun look.
Now that same sweater turns totally casual when paired with skinny jeans and brown riding boots. Pattern is now introduced through the leopard handbag. I kept the color palette pretty simple on this look and focused on texture with the wood bead necklace & carved wood bracelets.
Both of these pieces are going to be worn quite a bit this winter and I can see many different colors of tights going with this dress.
What about you? Do you like to remix? What are some of the tricks that you do to mix & match items in your closet?
