how to wear: 15 items, 20+ summer looks – part 3
Can you really create over 20 looks with just 15 items, sans shoes? You bet! Part 1 of this series covered the first 4 items, part 2 showed an additional 5, and today I’m adding 3 more. Here they are:
10. A Shirtdress. The shirtdress helps to bridge the gap between work and weekend. You can even make it more casual by wearing flat sandals with it. Here I show a J.Crew shirtdress in navy that looks great with the light jacket from Part 1, alone with a fun necklace for the weekend, or layered under the aqua cardi and belted for a more business casual vibe.
11. A Short-sleeve Top. You can easily add a button-down short-sleeve shirt but to shake things up, why not add a striped tee? (Apparently the one shown just sold out so the link goes to an alternative.) It can work for work paired under a blazer, with a pencil or aline skirt, or the white jeans shown in part 2.
12. A Light Neutral Skirt. The mocha a-line skirt can be dressed up or down and is a great item to have as your “Top 15.” You can add a tank top and flip flops for the weekend, or a black jacket for an important client meeting, or add the tan sleeveless top for a polished, monochromatic look.
Total Outfits = 13 : 10+6, 10+4, 10+2+4; 12+11, 12+3+4, 12+7+4; 12+7+6, 12+9, 12+1+6; 11+5, 11+3, 11+3+2, 11+5+6
PS. I’m not dead.
