I love pieces that can be worn in a variety of ways; they minimize your investment in something new and add multiple new looks to your closet, in a word: brilliant! Check out this dress by Amanda Uprichard below as an example. I styled it three ways: as a top with denim and boots, as a standalone dress, and as a dress underneath a brightly colored jacket (hot pink in my case!) Links on where to shop each piece are available at the bottom of this post.
