Guest Post Kym

One Dress, Six Ways
Hi there, lovely readers of Rachel the Hat!  I'm Kym and I blog about my personal style (on a budget) over at bitty.and.bunny.  I know we all have one or two pieces in our closets that we tend to wear more than the rest.  But when you have limited funds, the question is always how to get the most wear out of each piece, while still making it look fresh and new with each outfit.  Well, today I'm taking over Rachel's blog to show you six different ways to remix one dress - all with simple, basic items you already have in your closet. 
1. add a tee shirt under:
Wear a thin tee under the dress.  This not only provides a little more coverage, but it adds some visual interest as well.  In this case, the simple, graphic print of the dress really compliments the pop of turquoise provided by the shirt.
2. add a tee shirt over:
Knot a tee over your dress for a casual look that allows you to easily add any color you like just by changing the shirt. 
3. "tuck" a tee shirt in:
Belt a tee shirt over the dress to create the illusion of wearing a separate top and skirt.  Not sure how?  Here's a goof-proof tip: knot the shirt in the back or front, tuck the knot under, then belt it. 
4. add a cardigan:
For a relaxed look, wear an open cardi over the dress, and cinch it in with a belt to add shape.
5. add a vest:
For those extra warm days when you just can't fathom anything covering your arms, throw a vest over your dress to keep it interesting.
6. add lots of layers:
When the temperatures begin to drop, pile on the layers for a cozy look.  Here I belted a chambray button up and threw a chunky cardi on over it.  A scarf and boots complete the outfit and keep me feeling warm & fuzzy all day long.
I hope this inspires you to remix your favorite pieces in new and creative ways!  For more easy wardrobe remixing ideas, plus lots of other fun tidbits, come visit me at bitty.and.bunny.  I'd just love to meet you!

  3. I LOVE this blog post! I was really surprised to see it all of a sudden as I was sitting in my local coffee housing browsing - mostly because I HAVE this same exact dress!! Hardly ever do I see amazing posts like this one and am actually able to say I own something in the photos! :) <3

  9. I love the tuck in a tee. That's new. I already wear t-shirts underneath dresses, but wearing them over the top make it look like a whole new item.
