A few weeks ago, I did a little shopping and picked up a few items on clearance at Belk's. To make sure I wasn't wasting my money on items I would never wear, I tried to think of at least 2 ways to wear each item, or come up with at least 2 items in my closet that would look good with each item.
I found this piece that can be worn as a dress for a night out, or paired with leggings and rocked as a tunic:
I tried on this shirt with and without a belt and it looked good both ways. I could pair it with a pencil skirt I already own for work, or with nice denim and heels on date night with my fiance.
I love this emerald green pleated skirt. I can pull the waistband up to wear as a dress, pull it down to wear it as a maxi skirt, and can adjust it somewhere in between to make it a hi-lo or a midi skirt.

How do you decide which items to add to your wardrobe? Do you have unworn items in your closet collecting dust? Let me know in the comments :)
