Learning to style & restyle items in your wardrobe is entirely necessary to ensuring that you’re fully utilizing every single item you own. Buying items and finding you can only wear them one way, or to one event really puts a limit on the use of that item and can actually render it quite useless. Of course we all own one or two special occasion dresses, that’s totally normal. What you do not want to have is 10 blouses that only work with specific pants or skirts, or pants that only style perfectly with certain shoes. You want items that can mix and match to create perfectly seamless style and a useful practical wardrobe.
For this reason I am starting a sort of series showing items that I style multiple ways. It is only “sort of” a series because the posts won’t be on a set schedule, for now at least. What spurred this idea was actually a conversation I was having a few weeks ago with my mum after she had mentioned a shirt she owned which she found difficult to style for more occasions than just special occasions. Her saying that made me realize that so many of us pigeon hole a dress, shirt, skirt or pair of pants into being appropriate for only one occasion when really we can mix and match those items to make them into universally appropriate items.
Today I am starting with my military jacket. This jacket has become such a favourite in my wardrobe that I wear it nearly every day (or at least every day that’s sunny, it’s not waterproof and I’m not risking it then) and have found that it styles perfectly with edgier looks. The problem with that is, is that I do not wear only edgy styles. In-fact I typically dress very feminine. So I’ve mixed and remixed this jacket into looks that you’d typically think it wouldn’t suit making it a more versatile piece in my wardrobe.
