Fashion and Versatility, Part I

Ok. Ok. So, here at economy of style, we are not only committed to paying below full price for most things, but also to maximizing the utility of the things we do spend money on. We love chic basics because they generate numerous chic outfits. For example, black ponte knit dress by Calvin Klein ($49.99 at TJ Maxx) equals unlimited, effortless, work looks. Check out a few of these.

    Totally agree. By investing in a solid foundation of essential pieces and mixing and matching with fun accessories, you can build your wardrobe by 3-fold! Every girl should own basic cardigans, a cashmere one is even better!

    Amazing looks for one dress. I'll bet it would look great with a button down layered undereath, too.
