Worthy of Your Wardrobe | Can You Wear It at Least 2 Ways

How do you decide if an item is worthy of your wardrobe? When I’m helping clients wager what should take the prime real estate in their closets, I often ask them to rate the pieces for consideration on a scale of 1-10. One being they wouldn’t know it was missing, and ten being they’d run in to grab it if their house was on fire. Whether you’re deciding to let a piece go or add it to your collection, perhaps the most important thing to consider is its versatility.  You can almost always determine this by asking yourself; can it be worn at least two ways.

1. CAN IT BE WORN DURING TWO DIFFERENT SEASONS

SUMMER
WINTER

Like These Lovely Leather Shorts

2.CAN IT BE LAYERED?

UNDER
OVER

Like These Timeless Tanks.

3.CAN IT BE WORN AS A DIFFERENT TYPE OF ITEM THAN IT WAS SOLD AS?

Dress or pants?

For example, a tube top as a pencil skirt or a dress as a tunic.

Dress Double Take

4.CAN IT BE WORN BACKWARDS OR UPSIDE DOWN?

Wrap “front” sweater upside down and backward.

Now that’s a wrap

I’m serious. Check out my IGTV video.
