Win/Win Situation

Today, I focus on the ladies. One of the keys to an expansive wardrobe and killer style is being able to wear the same thing in different ways. Fro example: A blazer that you can wear with skinny jeans and heels, or with khakis and flats, to work, after work, or on the weekend. Or, in this case, a dress that can be worn with different shoes and accessories of different colors. Pictured is a beautiful wheel print dress. I chose this particular dress because of it's elaborate pattern, but a dress in one color would be a good choice for maximum versatility.

THIS WAY -- The red patent leather ballet flats are very versatile, and can be worn with many other items in your wardrobe. Along with the small purse to match, this a cute and carefree look. The patent leather adds interest and sparkle to this look without taking away from the overall appearance. The individual pieces stand out, but work well together. Wear slim, small jewelry with this, if at all.

THAT WAY -- On the other side of things, we have the cerulean blue suede pumps with matching clutch. Pulling the blue out of the pattern in the dress, together with the style of shoes and the style of the bag, changes the entire perception of the look, in a good way. Now you're giving soft and sexy, with sway! This look can be worn with bolder, solid color jewelry, like a bangle or colored hoop earrings.

THE OTHER WAY -- How about black opaque tights with a different color flat shoe? Or you could wear patent leather peep toe pumps and add a sweater dress. There are a lot of different options, and they all add up to a 'Win/Win Situation'. It's all about versatility and convertability* in your wardrobe.

In this look: Yellow, sleeveless, wheel print, belted, back zipper dress; Ted Baker "Rebekkah" patent small purse in dark red; Banana Republic bow ballet flat; Jessica Simpson cerulean blue suede pump; TOPSHOP croc embossed clutch. Click here to buy!

*Convertability is a "bobbyism". It means the same thing as versatility, but it sounds cooler.
