How to Wear The Versalette
Today we have a guest post from Sarah of Sweet Someday Shop. I was really encouraged to think differently about the pieces I already own and how to make them work in new ways. Hope you're encouraged too!
Dominique at Let’s Be Fair found me on instagram (@sweetsomeday) and she asked me if I’d like to do a guest post on all of my favorites looks with a convertible garment called the versalette. I was thrilled! I’m a huge fan of the versalette and am so excited to share it with all of you. The versalette is sold by Seamly.co and is sustainably made in the United States out of deadstock fabric. It is available for pre-order here: http://www.seamly.co/products/versalette It’s a very popular little piece and it sold out on the first day last time it was released! That’s why it’s now on preorder – so everyone who wants one can get one next time around.
The versalette is a one-size piece, which I was a little nervous about because I’m a petite five feet tall. But I was really excited about it and had to give it a try anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. It works for me in tons of different styles. I’m sure some styles work differently than others with different body types, but I’m going to share five of my personal faves. I took these pictures in and around my backyard in rural Minnesota.
The first look is a strapless dress. I cinched up the sides to get a more flattering length and used a belt at the waist to make a casual dress. I think this would be great for a swim cover-up for a lazy beach day, too.
The second look is actually my favorite way to wear the versalette! Just a simple summer dress cinched with a belt – I pulled out the cap sleeves but it can also be worn sleeveless. I love the pockets too. When fall rolls around, I think I’ll be wearing this look with a cardigan and boots.
The third look is a maxi skirt with a basic tee tucked in. It works as a maxi for me because of my height, but would be more of a midi length on most ladies. I topped it with a hat for a casual weekend look. See the pockets? They’re down by my feet now!
The fourth look is a short skirt! I wore it with the same basic tee and layered on a cardigan. Don’t mind the doggie photobomb and the senior picture-esque pose. I wore the short skirt over leggings recently too and loved it.
The best thing about the versalette is that there are so many more ways to wear it than I have even shown here. The options seem endless and I can’t imagine ever getting tired of it. I love having a piece of sustainable fashion that is so stylish and versatile! Thanks to Dominique for letting me share.
