Item to Remix: Gray and teal plaid one button cape/dress that I bought from a little boutique in Vegas about 7 years ago.
As you can see, this is not a neutral piece, so, you would think I would have very limited wears out of it LOL. Not the case! This is not the first time that I wore it and it will not likely be the last. Here I wore the dress layered over a mint mesh top, paired with distressed skinny jeans, a charcoal gray floppy hat, teal chained belt and teal fringe knee boots. This was an ideal outfit for the fashion show I was attending I Ohio during the winter (brrrr)!
How I Remixed It
This is one of several ways I have worn this piece. For church, I wore the cape/dress layered over a teal turtleneck dress, gray Mary Janes, a gray statement necklace and a medium gray belt that came with another dress I own. It was a warmer fall day so I didn't wear tights. I do have an awesome pair of thick charcoal footed tights for those cooler days.
Layer in unconventional ways
Swap out belts!!! Change your belt change your life LOL
Play with monochromatic colors i.e. the teal and mint or slate gray, charcoal gray, heather gray various shades that live in the same family
Don't be so in love with your original look that you have tunnel vision...switch out your shoe, your purse, your accessories. Try different things!
I hope this gave you a few tips to try! Would you layer a dress over another dress for a fun new look? Stylishly yours, KJ
