Try-it-out Tuesday: up or down?

    Perhaps one of the secrets to a flexible, well-used wardrobe is knowing how to dress items up or down?

navy and green colorblock belt, Forever 21

     On Friday I paired a graphic tee with a pencil skirt and a belt. It could be viewed both ways: dressing down a pencil skirt or dressing up a tee.
     Happy Tuesday! What's your favorite item to dress up (or down)? :)

  1. I think my favorite basic item to dress up or down is a classic white shirt. You can do so much with it!

  3. I love dressing jeans up or down :) Jeans can be casual or they can be dressed up with the right top or accessories :)

  5. Bessie - my closet is lacking simple white shirts. Definitely something that can be worn many different ways!

  7. My fave dress up/down item is a blazer. It can instantly make a tee ensemble look more put together yet still be cas and can make a frilly top or dress suddenly seem more approachable.
