A Perfect Match

It has been a while since I have put together a few outfit sets. I ran across this v-neck long-sleeve shirt while browsing online and thought of how easy a simple piece could be incorporated into outfits. The possibilities are endless but I came up with a dressy version as well as a casual version. Of course the idea of a long sleeve t-shirt lends itself to casual wear but I think with the right pieces and accessories, it can work for the evening as well.

One of the biggest challenges of styling clothing is taking a piece from winter to summer or vice versa. I know in the past there have been many articles of clothing in my closet that have only seen one season at a time. I think taking summer pieces and making them work for winter is the easy part. (Really, have you tried to make a winter parka work for summer?) By simply adding longer pants and a blazer, a top worn in the summer can be worn in the winter as well. Go check your closet - I bet you have several tops that can be thrown under a blazer or cardigan for a perfect look now.

Have a great day!

  6. I love the idea of a winter/summer piece. I have a lace dress that's perfect for the summer with some motorcycle boots or platform sandals, but I'm really wanting to try it with tights and a sweater for winter. I just might now! :)

  13. Such pretty outfits! I agree, with almost everything I buy, I try to make sure that I could either dress it up and down, or wear it all year round. I think it's really important to have versatility from the pieces in my wardrobe.
