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.
