31 Days, 31 Ways Remix Day 22

Welcome to the 31 Days, 31 Ways Remix! We’re on day 22 of shopping our closets to create 31 “new” outfits.

Today’s challenge is to wear a “resourceful” top.

For my resourceful top, I chose to wear a cardigan buttoned up so it looked more like a sweater. This works no matter the shape of your cardigan. A crew neck cardi, like mine pictured here, is perfect by itself (I wore a tank underneath just to be safe), or, if you have a v-neck cardigan, add a tank or cami underneath and treat it like a regular v-neck sweater. Besides guarding against cleavage, the cami gives a little pop of color underneath the cardigan. A lace cami is another option that would add great visual interest.

Here are a few other ideas to try:

  • Tuck a dress into a skirt and let it masquerade as a blouse (like yesterday’s first look).
  • Criss-cross a scarf over top of your shirt and belt it. You can also add a completer piece over top. This lets the print show through as your “top.”
  • Have another idea? Go for it!

    Great colors, again! Hmm, I’ll have to really think about how to use this prompt with my pieces.

      What did you come up with?!

        I tried buttoning up my cardigans in the morning, but they’re both a long and low cut, and I wasn’t feeling it. I also tried tying the ends of a scarf to make it a vest when I went out in the evening, but that didn’t look right on me either, So none of my attempts made it out of the house. It got me thinking, though!

          That’s perfect! Not all the prompts will end in an outfit you love, but if it gets you thinking, you’ll see more possibilities and also think differently about items when you’re shopping.
