One Pieces

Now that the cold has officially forced itself upon us, it's time to dress as "fashionably warm" as possible. An easy and affordable way to do that is to recycle (reuse) and layer pieces that you already own. Besides, it's cold. Why spend money on pieces that may have minimal exposure and won't be seen under wraps and coats?

Try the One Piece concept. In order for an article of clothing to be considered a "One Piece", it must meet the following criteria:
  • Must be something one can "dress up" or "dress down".
  • Must be able to be worn more than one season in a year (with the exception of coats and workout gear). Year-round would be dreamy...
  • Cannot be so trendy that it will be too dated if kept for more than one year. 
  • Must be structurally sturdy enough to maintain its fit.
  • Must be maintenance-friendly (no dry cleaning).
This long, over-sized cardigan sweater has become a mainstay in the Closet de Shica and is one of my favorite One Pieces. I fell in LOVE with it when I spotted it on the clearance rack in Nordstrom. I LOVE the way it fits (this is a medium), and the colors make it easy to wear with almost anything. Because it's lightweight, it can be worn in the spring or fall as well as layered on top of other pieces of clothing during the cold winter months. It looks good open or closed, belted or loose....

Here it is worn with a baseball tee and waisted with a leopard scarf from Forever 21.

I paired with a slip dress from H&M, a belt from another dress, and strappy heels here.

Do you own any One Pieces? Look through your closet, try things on, and just have fun. This is a whole new to way go shopping in your own closet. You will never know until you just go for it. To make things a little easier, keep in mind that #hautemomsrock!!!
