Mix and Match Clothes with Style

By on January 13, 2012, in Fashion Trends, Soft Surroundings

Have you ever stared into your closet and wondered how on earth you got to this point? Perhaps you have a hodge-podge of fabulous items that individually look great, but are limiting in how and when they can be worn. For example, that luxurious faux fur coat. It’s gorgeous in the evening, at a formal gala, but doesn’t transition from night to day. And it’s really only for winter, when it’s very cold. Otherwise you’ll melt in it.

Then there is that one top that you were giddy to buy, and have since only worn once. It’s a one-timer that has had its 15-minutes of fame, which cannot be re-created (or maybe should not be re-created, depending on how the evening went). Therefore to the back of the closet it goes, memories and all.

But what about this. . .wouldn’t  it be GREAT to be able to create multiple “new” outfits from some basic pieces that you can wear again and again? Basic pieces that are actually stylish, and can even stand on their own? If you are curious how you can mix and match clothing so it feels new all over again, we are here to help!  Here are some of our *favorite* pieces that can be mixed and matched, dressed-up or dressed down – classy enough for a day at the office, but can also move seamlessly into an evening cocktail party or weekend outing.

Sandwashed Denim Shirt Sandwashed Denim ShirtThe Sandwashed Denim Shirt is an incredibly versatile shirt that maintains its earthiness and style whether dressed up for a business meeting or dressed down for a relaxing weekend at home.Pair with an ankle-skimming skirt, like our Sophie Sweater Skirt, stacked boots, bangles and striking earrings, topped off with a gorgeous belt, and you have a look that will turn heads. Items featured are our Heirloom Boots,  Horsebit Belt, and Fine Feathered Earring.
Match this comfy denim shirt with jeans, over-the-knee boots, and pull on our Toulouse Topper, and you’ve got a whole new look that says you are ready for a casual, relaxing weekend. (Psst . . this topper is on *SALE* through January 30, 2012.) Additional Soft Surroundings’ items shown are our Metro Denim Legging, Studded Fedora and Berkeley Boot. Toulouse Topper

    My husband, Michael, bought several items from you recently for me. A Herringbone coat, the gloves and boots the model was wearing. I love them all. There is nothing left to do but purchase the scarf,and shirt she was wearing. I have never worn brown in my life, so really have nothing to wear with tis coat. Love your clothing and will surely be buying more soon.

      Thank you for your post. We are happy to hear you are delighted with your new items! We believe you must be talking about the Covington Coat, the Cashmere and Leather Gloves, and the Sherpa Convertible Boot. This is a fabulous outfit – your husband has great taste! You can see the rest of the ensemble here: http://www.softsurroundings.com/outfit/covington/. You may notice the Silk Baroque Scarf shown available to purchase is not the same color the model is wearing – we are inquiring about this and will follow back up with you once we have more information.

      Thank you again, we very much value your business.

    I am planning to order the Charlize shirt, but am concerned because in one of the reviews, the customer said she was pleased that it fit her 36D bustline, “But with Gaping.” Was that a typo? Was she saying withOUT gaping? because it seemed contradictory to say if fit so well, then to say WITH GAPING. I have a full bustline as well, and don’t want to order if the buttons are gaping. Thanks.
