Staff Challenge: Closet Swap See how the Style Bible editors worked around a piece from someone else's closet.

While we like to try out trends, we still have specific items that we either gravitate to or completely avoid. And because fashion girls are always up for a challenge, we decided to pair up and make our partner wear something far from her comfort zone. One thing we've realized: there's always a way to make a look your own.

Scroll down to see the outfits we came up with!

FROM JACQUE'S CLOSET: Temper Trap T-shirt

"I don't wear big T-shirts to work so I was excited to play around with one of Jacque's band shirts. Black and white never gets old so I went for a fun, business-ready look with my trusty white trousers, a black cape, and a pair of chic heels for a sleek and crisp appeal."

Kabbie Rodriguez Alipio, Associate Fashion Editor

FROM KABBIE'S CLOSET: Army jacket

"Kabbie has never seen me wear camo before, so it was fitting for me to try it out. I paired it with my favorite pair of denim shorts and one of my oversized black tees (another obsession). To keep things casual, I finished it off with a pair of wedge sneakers. It turns out, camo is something I can easily mix with my current set of clothes. "

Jacque de Borja, Fashion Assistant

FROM NIKKI'S CLOSET: Sequined tank top

"I like mixing dressy pieces with casual ones so I decided to pair Nikki's embellished top with shorts (as usual) and brown booties. Nikki is always chic and sophisticated so I decided to dress mine down. I tied a chambray top around my waist to make the look more interesting."

Bea Jocom, Editorial Assistant

FROM BEA'S CLOSET: Denim overalls

"I used to worry that denim overalls scream little kid. It still triggers a rush of pre-school nostalgia; but when paired with a stripe top and chunky wedge sandals, it transforms into a preppy, grown-up version."
