One Piece Different Ways

One of the most important things for me in learning to "work my closet" has been to learn how to wear the pieces in my closet in multiple different ways.  Figuring out how to do that helps me get more use out of my closet without having to buy more clothes.  Before style blogging, I tended to wear an item of clothing only one or two ways, so being able to imagine a piece being worn four, five, or even ten different ways was mind-blowing--and fun!

In hopes to help you find more versatility in your closets, here are posts that feature one item worn multiple ways.  Good luck discovering the hidden treasures in your own closet!

  1. Tonight is the first time I've come across your blog, and I LOVE it! It's seriously SO helpful. One of the problems I have is that I don't know how to choose colors for "pop"... I normally grab things that are neutral like black or grey. How do you know what colors to pick? (Ex: cardigan, scarf, belt?)

    1. Hi Kara! I've been asked that question a lot lately, so I think I need to write a post on it! For now I can say it's easy if there's a print in your shirt--just pull out any of the colors from the print and use it in your either cardigan/scarf/shoes/belt, etc! Otherwise, I tend to do colors that are opposites or are further from each other on the color wheel (http://pinterest.com/pin/23151385554048374/) to make something pop.

  4. Hi,
    I really love your ideas. On wearing belts, what width should you get if you are a little "thick" in the waist?
    Thanks!

  5. Can I just say how much I love your blog? I keep finding new ways to wear my clothes! I see a piece and think "I'll check her blog for ideas." Thank you for posting all of this and being awesome!

  6. I love your blog! I'm a tshirt and jeans girl and I've been stuck in that kind of outfit for ages. Living in a tropical country doesn't really encourage layering and I don't know if I can pool off wearing a skirt or dress. Reading your blog has given me ideas on how I can embrace my curves and be aware of clothing pieces that could work. I'm still wary about using belt though but I'll get there. LoL.

  7. Hi! I just found your blog through Pinterest! I have been going through it for hours...You have so many great ideas! I'm originally from Florida so I'm used to shorts and a t-shirt...several years ago I moved to Pennsylvania but I recently got married and now live in Monterey, CA. The fashion / seasons / weather is totally different in all of those areas. Your blog is helping me put together outfits I can wear in Monterey (since the climate is so temperate but a little on the colder side for a Floridan). I just wanted to say thank you for the help and inspiration. Keep it coming!! :)

  8. I found your blog in a post on Money Saving Mom and am soooo glad. I'm always trying to save more money, but lately have been wanting to spice up my wardrobe w/out buying a new one. I went through my closet after only reading 2 of your posts and found some great things that I can start pairing together. I think I will start taking pics for my outfit options to keep it going:) You are a blessing through this blog. Thank you! I look forward to upcoming posts:)

  11. Awesome site! I have a pretty ivory chiffon skirt with ruffles/pleats on the waistband. It's the strangest thing. It also comes with a braided brown belt, so I know brown boots would be cute, but I have not clue what top to wear! :(

So thank you for this great site! :)

  30. I am so happy I stumbled upon this blog. I literally did a Google search on "wardrobe tips." For years, I have bought random items I just like with no way to use them different ways, or I just didn't know what to do beyond slap a pair of jeans with them. It was to the point where my dresser was littered with items I had not worn more than once (or even at all)! It was just wastes of money and awkward pieces.

    Now, I literally feel like I can shop for clothes in a smart way, keep a small, manageable wardrobe, and still have such a variety of outfit possibilities. You literally make it so simple that I wonder why it's taken 25 years of my life to get to the point that I can comfortably and easily piece together a cute, mature-looking outfit without losing my own sense of style. It feels like shopping will never be a pain again, or I can go out and see something I like and be able to know that I will be able to wear it more than one way. And my dresser is much, much neater.

    I expect to be following this blog for a long time!

    1. I also have to add how awesome I think it is that many of these items can be found at a place like Target because that happens to be my favorite place for clothes.
