British fashionista Charlotte Crowley tells you what to wear—and what NOT to wear.
The Art of Remixing: Part Four- One Dress, 7 Ways
Are you a secret remixer? I bet you are. I bet you do it without realising. Wondering what the heck I'm talking about? Well let me enlighten you. Remixing is wearing one item of clothing repeatedly in different wears and in different pairings. In the current economic climate, we all know that it's unrealistic to buy an item that can only be worn with one other thing in our wardrobes. Remixing is also popular with fashion bloggers like myself, as most of us are students or working with a limited budget, plus remixing challenges us to make the absolute most of our wardrobe.
Over the next few weeks I will be teaching you some of the basics of remixing including remix challenges you can take up and how to get the absolute most out of your wardrobe, including new and unexpected ways to wear your clothes.
Last week I gave you an example of a remix challenge by choosing 8 items and showing you 14 different outfits created from those pieces, so this week I thought I would show you one last challenge. I'm going to choose one item and show you eight different ways to wear it.
The challenge of wearing one item in multiple ways is my absolute favourite remix challenge. The premise is simple, it doesn't demand a great deal of time and planning, and I always use pieces that I already have in my wardrobe. As a recent graduate, I won't buy anything unless I can think of multiple ways to wear it, and I often challenge myself to create as many outfits as possible when I have an impulsive splurge. I frequently posts on my own blog where I demonstrate how I have worn the same item in multiple ways, or I will take on challenges such as this one, where I wear the same item every day for a few days. It really forces you to be creative, and it can be very inspiring to see how one item, worn with slightly different pieces, can look so different.
I've chosen this black lace dress from Topshop.
