Ever have the feeling of being overcome by the gaping hole of possibilities that is your closet? Especially as we begin a new semester it can be hard getting back into the swing of picking out an outfit every day, and unfortunately those pj’s you wore everyday over break are no longer acceptable. However, there is no need to fret because there is a solution to this problem! One of the best ways to get the most out of your wardrobe is by getting creative and layering pieces that you already have in your closet.
Stores, such as Anthropologie and Free People, sell fabulous items that showcase this “layered look”, but unfortunately can end up being a bit pricey. The good news is, it is easy to create this eclectic look all on your own with staple items from your closet. All you will need is a flowy tank to layer underneath your favorite sweater or long sleeved shirt.
The Look for Less:
To create a soft, romantic look try pairing a tank trimmed with or lace or a scalloped edge with a simple and feminine sweater. Or create a more whimsical look by mixing and matching patterns and textures. Throw on your favorite scarf and wear this look to class, and then swap the scarf for a bold necklace for going out. The possibilities are endless, but remember to make it fun, make it unique, and make it all your own!
