12 Days of Clothing: Day 11

For the next 2 days I’ll be focusing on style ideas for 2015.  Follow along for tips on trends to try, smart clothing tips, and new inspirations for a fab fashion new year!

Day Eleven: Get more out of each piece

This is a case of less actually IS more: cool, right?  The idea here is to buy pieces you can not only dress up or down or with different accessories, but in multiple WAYS.  So a dress can become a skirt, a skirt a top, a scarf a cardigan…you get the idea.  But just in case, here’s EXACTLY what I mean:

1) A dress becomes a skirt and top: keep the top structured and the dress in a lightwight fabric

3) A scarf as a vest: Pick a bright or patterned scarf in a rectangular shape
