That lace dress you bought for your cousin’s wedding. That strapless jumpsuit you reserve only for summer days. I bet your closet is full of items just begging to be worn more often! I know mine is. But how to work these forgotten gems into your busy schedule? Luckily, with some strategic layering and creative styling, you can breathe new life into styles you may have tossed aside. Think of it as outfit multitasking. One item, two ways, go!
Bridesmaid to Brunch
Your BFF’s wedding was beautiful, and that lace bridesmaid dress she picked out was such a great color on you. So, why not give it a casual update? Simply layer on a light sweater, add cute flats, and finish with a structured bag. You’ll get a look that’s perfect for breezy brunches with the girls. Extra points if your BFF compliments your clever re-purposing skills over mimosas.
Soiree to Sightseeing
Summer’s almost here, which means your calendar is going to be packed with various outdoor activities. The perfect double-duty piece? A flowy, floral print shift! Throw it over that new bikini for your co-worker’s pool party. Or, pair it with a button-up and shades for day trips around the city. Side note: isn’t that Betsey Johnson fish purse ah-mazing?!
Wedding to Downtown
Love is in the air, so it’s good to have a fancy frock handy should a wedding invite arrive in your mailbox. But once you’ve toasted the happy couple, don’t let it gather dust in the back of your closet. Simply throw on a moto jacket and swap those heels for sneaks—now you’re set to record shop and grab lunch downtown.
Summer to Fall
Fab news—that boho maxi you plan on wearing all summer is perfect for fall too! Right now, pair it with some sandals and let the sun kiss your shoulders to your heart’s content. Come autumn, you can easily throw on a denim jacket and a sweet pair of ankle boots. Pumpkin spice latte not included (but highly encouraged).

Every gal needs a jumpsuit in her wardrobe. Paired with heels and statement bling, it’s guaranteed to get you a ton of compliments. But the jumpsuit can totally rock your 9-to-5, too. Pair with a button up, top with a blazer, & you’re set to own the office.
