Wearing a Dress as a Top

by krismkoch

As someone who has to get dressed every day for work, I’m all about repurposing items in my closet in new ways. Contrary to popular belief, editors aren’t just gifted endless designer clothes, so it’s necessary to be strategic about what I buy. And just like many other working moms, my work clothes tend to be dry clean-only items that I’d rather not get toddler and puppy paws on so I essentially need two wardrobes  — work and weekend. To stretch my closet as far as possible though I try to get creative with everything I own, repurposing items in different ways to create new looks from the pieces I already own. Case in point: this one-shoulder beach coverup/dress that I wore as a shirt recently. I just paired it with an old Zara midi skirt and it looked like a brand new outfit.
