How To Dress Up And Dress Down Your Clothes

In fashion there are no such thing as rules, it’s all about creating them.  So many women get hung up on labels - saying items are “dressy” or “casual” and wearing them only that way.  So many women feel the need to have two separate wardrobes - one for work, one for outside of work.


Did you know you’re ruling out majority of your outfit options by placing labels on your garments?


Did you know you end up spending even more money on clothes and wasting just as much money?


Thinking you need to have separate wardrobes and wearing casual pieces in only a casual way or dressy pieces when you want to get dressed up is the quickest and easiest way that so many women waste so much each year, find themselves with a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear and settling for a style they don’t love.


If there’s one thing for certain with fashion, you don’t need a ton of pieces to be stylish and you don’t have to break the bank to pull off a fashionable look that you love.


With every garment you have in your closet - you can wear it in a casual and dressy way.

It’s all about balance.


For every item you have hanging in your closet, you have plenty of outfit options surrounding each piece.  But in order to easily create different outfits around the same pieces, your wardrobe needs the right pieces that you can add to every outfit -- your wardrobe basics.  These are the items that you can pair with every single item you own and it’ll be an instant match.  Your basics are the pieces that you can add to help dress up your look or dress it down.


For example, that skirt you wear into the office that you feel is too dressy to wear outside of work is just ruling out ways for you to be stylish with the clothes you have:
