Fashion Mixology: 8 Outfits From 8 Pieces

1

Hi there! It's time for another round of Fashion Mixology (view round 1 here). The concept is simply this... We take 8 pieces of clothing and make 8 different looks with those pieces. Shoes and accessories don't count as pieces, only dresses, pants and tops! The goal of this feature is to inspire confidence and ideas to stretch your wardrobe farther. 

This round, we worked with American Apparel! We chose a white lace dress, peachy chiffon button-up, a skirt and chiffon tank from AA along with four pieces from our own closet. Here are eight outfits from eight pieces of clothing... enjoy!

Layering is a great way to strech a wardrobe. In this look we layered a lace dress under a pleated vintage skirt! 

3

Long necklaces are one of Emma's favorite accessories! In this look she used them to add detail to her pretty look. 

4

Did you know you can wear a midi or maxi length skirt as a dress? Just add a belt. This works great with skirts that have stretchy waist bands! 

5

If you've wondered how to wear chiffon, we love layering it over dresses, tank tops and bralettes. The layered look that Emma is wearing here is super cute with high waisted pants! 

6

Throwing a schoolboy blazer on over a cute belted dress is the perfect way to create a put together look with minimal pieces! 

7

Tie an oversized top over a dress to create a fitted waist! I love this look... so effortless!

Don't be afraid to untuck your blouse with a layered outfit. Messy details can make a look that much more interesting! 

9

Add a big belt to your layered look and no one will suspect you're wearing a dress under your skirt! 

Hope you're feeling inspired to mix up your wardrobe! XO, Elsie
