I’ve always been one to utilize my wardrobe efficiently – mixing and matching wardrobe staples while also incorporating standout items is fun for me. Heck, that’s how the Wardrobe Remix was born! I love the challenge of reimagining the same pieces to create a variety of different outfits. With the shopping ban I’m doing for the next several months (discussed here), remixing my wardrobe is what will really help me through any sartorial challenges I may face.

One of the first steps in being able to effectively remix your wardrobe is by looking a your closet differently and assessing ALL the possibilities one item can truly offer. Sure it can be as obvious as belting a boxy shirt at the high point of your waist, doing a partial tuck to that same boxy top or even tucking it in completely for three totally different takes on the same piece.

A ‘different’ way I like to remix my dresses are by styling them up as skirts, like in this outfit. The cold weather allowed me to layer up enough pieces to keep me warm and transform a basic summer (maternity) staple. The Fall and Winter seasons are excellent times to try this kind of remix because it allows you to pile on the layers. You can top a dress off with a tunic sweater and add fun a belt at the waist or even as simple as adding a peplum blouse over-top and calling it a day. The possibilities can be endless if you just think creatively!
