Mastering the act of maximizing your wardrobe

Mastering the act of wardrobeomaximization is an important skill I believe everyone should have. I mean, you don’t just stuck up on items, use once and dump….even if you can afford to. I always say one of the things that passes you off as a stylish person is your ability to do different things with what you have. The funny thing is how well you revibe or revamp your wardrobe pieces especially clothing, makes it difficult for people to notice that you repeated them in the first place. And if they actually did notice, it’s maybe too forgiving to be held against you.

Your wardrobe basics are always the best items to repeat and revamp because they most likely will coordinate well with other items in your closet.

Ashley is my style star for the week. The queen of Maximization. She is a fashion blogger and consultant. View her blog here.

In expressing how interesting the act of maximization can be, she partnered with Maggy London in styling their little black wrap dress in 4 distinctive ways.

First look
Maggy London wrap dress, Greylin jacket, H&M boots, Love Cortnie bag, Maddan shoes

Second look
Maggy London wrap dress, Nasty girl cardigan, Zac Zac posen bag, Rayban sunglasses, Zara boots

Third look
Maggy London wrap dress, Asos jeans, plaid top, River Island bag, Lauren Marinis shoes

Forth look
Maggy London wrap dress, Missguided fur vest, Nordstorm cap, Vince Camuto backpack, Schutz shoes

She used accessories to create four entirely different outfits by simply going for different shoe and bag choices, layering and styling details like tying a shirt around the waist, adding a belt, using a cap. You will agree with me that she hasn’t even exhausted half of the myriad ways to style that wrap dress.

It's all about asking yourself…..what else can I do with this shirt, dress or top? You will find the answers flowing if only you give it some thought.

I hope this post has inspired you?

Y’all gotta master the act of maximization!
