Style Stretching Strategies: Over/Unders

Another way to get more bang for your wardrobe buck is to include garments that can be worn both as an Under-layer and an Over-layer depending on the outfit.  Here’s how those dual-duty pieces can work in your closet …

Front-button shirts are the most obvious over/under.  This dusty blue reptile print shirt is a perfect example.

You can button and tuck it into a skirt or pant for a traditional look.  You can layer on a jacket for more polish.

You can wear it with jeans (or skirts or pants for that matter) untucked – shirt tails thru a belt loop –  for an edgier vibe.  Or you can wear it unbuttoned loose or knotted over a coordinating shell or camisole as a faux jacket.

Which pieces in your closet can function as both an Under and an Over?
