When you get your box of new GB pieces and every item is a winner – you want to get the most of those pieces before they head back in the mail. We’ve got three style hacks to turn one item into many outfits. Read on and discover style tricks bound to wow.
1. Hack the Sleeveless Dress
For this styling trick, we’re layering a blouse under a sleeveless dress for a little extra coverage, or for just a pop of fun. To make this look work, the key is a sleeveless dress with a structured material, and a blouse that is lightweight, to keep the lines of the look smooth. When considering styling, you’ll want to choose a blouse with a fun print or an interesting sleeve. If you are pushing styling boundaries this is a great time to try print-mixing, or if you prefer a more classic look, try it with a white button-down. You now have endless styling possibilities with just one dress.
2. Hack the Silhouette
If you love the feeling of a slouchy silhouette, you’re not alone. It’s comfortable, easy, and effortlessly cool. But to dress up this look and shift the shape, try adding a structured blazer over it. You still get the benefit of feeling relaxed in this dress, while appearing to add a shape to your look. Even unzipped, the blazer will give the appearance of a waist without any restrictive styling to accomplish it. From relaxed and cool, to polished and put together, you just doubled your outfit power with this trick.
3. Hack the Sweater Dress
The one-and-done ease of a sweater dress makes it a great stand alone piece. However, if you’re looking to get more out of this piece, try layering a skirt over top of it, and turning it into a sweater. To get the most of this styling, make sure the sweater dress is lightweight and doesn’t have a waist or a flare to it. Pick a skirt with a sturdy material that is longer than the sweater dress. This two-for-one hack will give you many more miles out of both items!
