Shop Your Closet: Remix

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.

Key Takeaways:

  • 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
