I read Audrey’s Putting Me Together blog daily, and she has completely changed how I look at my closet! She is hosting a One Piece Different Ways linkup this week, and her post is here and you can see all the other posts who have linked there too. I wanted to try it, so this is my attempt!
I picked up this shirt on clearance at JCPenney. They were running an extra 50% off their clearance, AND they have a petite section, so I picked this up for about $3 bucks. I was so excited! So I wanted to challenge myself to see how many different ways I could wear it.
First, I explored what different pants I could wear with it. Obviously, it works with jeans for a casual look. It has white in it so it works well with white jeans too. And here are the black pants that I talked about in this post! I love them.
Next, skirts. I’ve had this purple skirt for forever and it helps pull out the purple in the shirt. Jean skirts and a black straight skirt are so versatile! All of these are great for work or church.
These I had to leave up to my imagination, because it’s about 170 degrees with 300% humidity in Tampa right now. But, I can imagine that a jean jacket works well with this. Another thing I love about white jeans — you can wear a denim jacket with it and not be blue denim from head to toe. The gray jacket helps because it’s 3/4 sleeve — something about having my elbows free makes me feel so much cooler. And a vest is a great way to add a layer without extra sleeves.
I also experimented with different ways to style the shirt itself. Loose, tucked, and belted. Tucking is a great way to lengthen the leg line because it makes your waistline higher. Belting has a similar effect.
I experimented with different necklaces with it. I love the concept of statement necklaces but I’m starting small with the white one. The pendant was a gift and is made from an old piece of silverware and has an “L” stamped on it — love it! And you can never go wrong with pearls.
So there you have it! Over 10 ways to style one shirt. Try it out! It’s a great way to make yourself wear something in a new way.
