White Tee, Pencil Skirt, Unlimited Possibilities

Fashion mathematics. Here at economy of style, I have always been driven by the challenge of maximizing the bang for my bucks. One way to achieve a variety of looks on a budget is by accumulating timeless basics that can easily be refashioned using accessories and other items already in my wardrobe.

Got a white tee and a pencil skirt? Check out how I work with mine—a white tee from H&M ($5) and a pencil skirt by MICHAEL Michael Kors (retail $89.50, TJ Maxx price $39.99).

    What a great post! I love seeing different ways to remix items, that's fantastic!

    The only problem is that the slide show has an ad at the bottom that covers your feet…so I can't see any of your shoes. 🙁

    Thanks for posting this, you have lots of great ideas!
