Versatile pieces that work any day.
These Basics Look Good Dressed Up or Down

Clothes are meant to be repeated. So when choosing clothes or accessories to buy, it’s important to consider their versatility and think about how you can dress them up or down. To give you an idea, here are five pieces you can style in a plethora of ways, so you can wear them without worrying about your options.

1. Satin dress

The obvious way to wear a dress with an elegant fabric is to dress it up, making the piece more fit for formal gatherings. But, when layered with a long-sleeved shirt or a jean jacket, it becomes the ideal outfit for a more casual day out. Switch the heels for a pair of comfy white sneakers and you’re good to go.

2. Tote bag

Tote bags were meant for stuffing in all of your everyday necessities for when you set off to work, but they also have the space to fit a change of clothes and a couple of essentials—perfect for a weekend getaway. This practical bag can function as an everyday bag!

3. Necklace and bracelet

When it comes to accessorizing, jewelry with simple, delicate pieces is the way to go. You can match it with virtually any outfit; use it as an everyday accessory, or to add an accent to more dressed up ensembles.

4. Short-sleeved polo

Don’t mistake this piece for something that only boys can wear! Tuck it into a pair of straight cut trousers for a casual but put-together work outfit. Another way to style this is to treat it as an outer piece—wear it over over a tank top and pair it with shorts and sneakers for a casual outfit you can run errands in.

5. Shirtdress

When you can’t be bothered to think about which item of clothing matches with what, a shirt dress can always save the day. It’s all about playing it up with jackets, shoes, and accessories. Pair it with ankle boots to elevate your look for a night out or with a pair of trainers to dress it down for more casual days.
