How I Mix And Match My Clothing To Create More Outfits
I love versatile clothing and finding items I can wear in multiple ways. While looking for clothing that would work for Thanksgiving (forgiving in the tummy area), I ran across these gorgeous Merlot pieces. I loved them and thought they would be great for Thanksgiving, but then I started wondering if I could wear them in different ways. So, here’s how I mix and match my clothing from Kohl’s to create different looks.
I started this outfit with a mockneck sweater tank from Nine West in Cherry Merlot. This entire outfit is also available in black and a beautiful muted green, but I thought this color looked like fall. Anytime I see a ribbed item, I will size it up, and it is a good thing that I did. I’m wearing a large, and it has a body-skimming fit.
The fine gauge knit duster cardigan matches the sweater tank perfectly. I like a longer cardigan so I can wear them later with leggings and not feel uncomfortable. Plus, a cardigan hides my waist’s sides and helps me appear thinner than I am. I’m wearing a medium, but I think I would have liked it better in a large. I like my cardigans to be a tad oversized, so I can wrap myself up in them if I choose.
Most of the time, I’ll wear a cardigan open, so I will either tie the belts in the back or take them off and cut the belt loops. If you have a cardigan that’s too large for you and doesn’t show your outfit, you can tie the belt in the back and make the cardigan stay open.
Did you notice my block heel neutral-colored pumps? These pumps look so nice with everything, and since they are by Easy Street, they are comfortable also. These run TTS, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.
Let’s mix and match my clothing for a different look. I kept on the sweater tank and matching sweater pants but switched up the top for a different look. These sweater pants are stretchy and comfortable and perfect for Thanksgiving. I wore an outfit almost identical to what I wore last year for Thanksgiving. The outfit was super comfortable, and I wore it a lot at the house. It feels like elevated loungewear, and I like to look nice even if I’m not going anywhere. I’m wearing a medium, and I think I would like them better if I sized them up to a large.
I’m not usually a fan of a marled print, but I loved the look of this wrap sweater so much that I decided to try it. Do you think it was a coincidence that it matched my Merlot outfit perfectly? You don’t have to worry about the end of the belt falling since it is tacked in place. I’m wearing a medium, and it has a relaxed fit, which is perfect since I’ll be wearing it over another top.
I usually keep my jewelry pretty simple for Thanksgiving, so I only added these twisted gold-tone hoops. These are lightweight and don’t hurt your ears.
Let’s switch things up again. Now I’m going to mix and match my clothing for a casual look. I left on the sweater tank and wrap sweater, but I added a pair of flare-leg jeans to my look.
I love these dark-wash flare jeans!!! I think flare jeans are universally flattering, and they sure make wearing boots easier. Dark wash jeans are great for a casual look, but they can be worn dressier also. These high-waisted jeans also come in medium and light wash, and they have the perfect amount of stretch. Yes, you can wear these for Thanksgiving since they have enough “give” to them to keep you comfortable after your big meal. I’m wearing my usual size 8, and they fit me great.
These caramel dress ankle boots are gorgeous in person. I love how they can be worn with jeans or a dress, and they will elevate all your outfits. If you want to see how I wore these boots with a pair of trouser jeans, then check out my elevated fall style with trouser jeans from Kohl’s post.
