Talltique Layering Tee – 4 Ways

A few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have given a layering tee much thought or attention in the outfit creation department. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my Project Remix experiment, it’s to analyze all of the different possible ways an item of clothing can be worn. I love when fellow 6’2er Adrienne from The Rich Life on a Budget does posts on different looks she has created from one simple “base” outfit.

Inspired, I decided to give it a try using my trusty J.Crew black jeans, Aquatalia waterproof boots and new Talltique layering tee.

I’ve had this grey sweater from (of all places) Victoria’s Secret for about 10 years and recently rediscovered it. Previously, I only wore it with a white or black tank or tee underneath (yawn!). I figured the burgundy layering tee would be just the thing to spice up this oldie-but-goodie sweater.

Remember my ruana from Long Elegant Legs? I think it looks pretty swell with a pop of burgundy underneath, don’t you?

My blue/green sheer plaid button-up from Banana Republic is one of my all-time favorite pieces and the colors mix surprisingly well with the burgundy. I tucked the Talltique layering tee in for this look and also added my animal print skinny belt for a little pattern mixing. I can’t decide whether I like this look with the shirt completely undone or tied at the waist. What do you think?

OK….I might be pushing my luck a smidge by pairing bright cobalt blue with burgundy and black but I actually think it works. Similar to my VS grey sweater, I normally wear white or black under this tunic and wanted to nudge myself out of my comfort zone a bit.

The next time I do this “one base outfit many ways” experiment, I’m going to take it up a notch and change my shoes with each outfit too. Watch out!

Your turn…

Have you ever tried to see how many outfits you can make out of one “base outfit”? How often do you go through your closet and find forgotten treasures?

    Great job! I like all the outfits! I like the plaid shirt both ways – I think you can (almost) count them as different outfits! 🙂

    I’m trying to be a bit more creative with what’s in my closet as I tend to combine things the same way over and over again… I think I’ll take on a project like this sometime in the future myself…

      I like your thinking about counting the plaid shirt outfits as two separate ones! I know what you mean about feeling like you’re wearing the same things over and over. I often feel the same and I have to push myself to re-imagine my clothes. I hope you do this experiment sometime! Would love to see what you come up with.
