Hey guys, guess what? It's time for another round of Fashion Mixology! If you haven't read our mixology posts before, the concept is this: We take 8 pieces of clothing and make 8 different looks with those pieces. Shoes and accessories don't count. The goal of this feature is to inspire confidence and ideas to stretch your wardrobe farther! It can be easy to wear items the same way every time, so we try to find ways to spice up our wardrobe. For this edition we partnered with ShopSosie, who sent us four of the beautiful pieces featured!Look One/ This time of year I love finding ways to add a shirt or thin jacket to an outfit. As hot as it is outside it can get super cold inside restaurants or movie theaters; making this added layer a summer staple. Look Two/ I love all the pretty sorbets and jewel toned colors of this season! Don't be afraid to mix color palettes. Look Three/ I love love this cute trench style dress. Pairing it with bright statement shoes gives it a pop of color and a little more interest, even this is the simple styling. Look Four/ Adding on a layer of lace can give a dress a more laid back feel while staying feminine and fresh.Look Five/ Try tying a small knot in your front shirt tails. This is one 90s trend that I am so glad I tried again. :) Look Six/ Trying wearing a fitted pencil skirt as a sleeveless top. This may not work with every skirt but I love finding completely new ways to wear an item of clothing. Add a belt if you want a more defined waistline. Look Seven/ This is how I plan to transition my trench dress and mint jeans into the upcoming autumn season. My trench dress can pull double duty as a faux jacket. And by keeping the rest of your outfit neutral you can keep wearing your favorite pastel pieces on into the fall. Look Eight/ Don't be a afraid of a little matchy matchy. Ha! I was surprised by how much my blouse matched my sandals. I, apparently, really like this color. :) Didn't get enough? Check out all our past Mixology's in our archives.
