Mix-and-Match Spring Separates
Arlington wardrobe consultant Cathy Starnes shows how a few key pieces can get you through wedding and graduation season without breaking your bank account.
IS YOUR SUMMER social calendar already packed? The good news is that you don’t need to sink a month’s pay into enough outfits to carry you through wedding and graduation season. Instead, augment what you have with a few choice pieces and then mix things up. “Don’t think of an item as evening-only or just for the office,” advises Cathy Starnes, a fashion consultant with Arlington-based Style Speaks (stylespeaks.com).
“If you look at pieces in different ways, it can exponentially expand your wardrobe.” Starnes shows us how to get the most bang for our shopping buck from a few versatile items—several of which might already be in your closet.
