Happy Friday! It’s been a long week, I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend. Today’s post is the first of what will soon become a regular post on Glamour House: “One Buy, Three Tries,” where I take one item and style it three very different ways. Hopefully it’ll inspire you to look at your favorite pieces in a new light and try out new looks! The “buy” is this striped “Bonjour” sweater from ASOS.

I love this sweater because it’s just so literally French. The stripes and the “Bonjour” I just find kind of kitch and adorable. I love throwing a casual sweater or button-down over a dressy dress. That always makes a look a little more cool and effortless and makes it easier to wear the dressier items in your closet. Nobody wants to be the loser who shows up to a party looking like they’re going to prom.

For the second look, I paired the sweater with am equally playful skirt. I love mixing prints, although it can be tricky: you want to make sure the two prints share a color palette, if one print is busy the other should be clean and simple (like the look below), and if one of the prints is large the second should be small.


The final look was an easy, casual style. I dressed it up with leopard heels (if you’ve been following my posts, you know I have a slight obsession with leopard prints). It just makes any outfit a little bit more dressy.

Don’t you love it when you find a variety of unique ways to wear one item? It makes every buy worth so much more when you can really stretch it into several looks.

I will be posting throughout the weekend, so check back often. Also– this Monday will be the first “Makeover Monday”! I’ll be giving someone a head-to-toe makeover and I’ll share a step-by-step guide on how the transformation came to fruition. I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
