Ready to start the week with a fun eco-friendly styling challenge?!
Today I’m challenging you to style one item 3 ways for 3 days! I’ve laid out all the guidelines below but before you scroll down, I want to quickly share my looks and takeaways from my personal 3-day style challenge!
Main Garment: A chambray jumpsuit
My Struggle: This jumpsuit was purchased for a vacation and I hadn’t envisioned how I would style it for my everyday life. I was feeling intimidated!
Key Learning: I was less stressed each morning because I knew I had to wear the same jumpsuit. I’m starting to understand the whole Steve Jobs outfit repetition idea! It feels good to save your decision making power for later in the day. (*note: style your item the night before in order to feel the biggest impact)
After completing the challenge I now have so many new ideas for how I can style this jumpsuit! I’d love to try it with a big knit sweater, an off the shoulder sweatshirt, and maybe even a ruffled sleeve shirt I have.
Now it’s your turn! Below is everything you need to get started.
Choose 1 Garment & Prepare to Style it 3 Ways for 3 Days!
This item can be a dress, pants, skirt, or even a top but keep in mind that it’ll need to be versatile so that you can mix & match it with other items in your closet.
Also, check the weather and your calendar before you pick your garment! I don’t want you showing up to a job interview in yoga pants …unless it’s a yoga company..
Don’t Wash it!
I know this sounds, well, stinky but washing your garment less will save water, energy and it helps extend its life cycle. This step also amplifies the impact of this challenge!
(note: If you spill on yourself or have a super sweaty day, don’t stress! Go ahead and wash your clothes. This is not intended to be a punishment!)
Mix & Match
Once you’ve chosen your main item, you can accessorize and style it to your heart’s content each day.
Change shoes, add a coat, try it with a belt or sweater … anything goes as long as you keep the core item the same!
