7 Easy Ways To Remix Your Closet

It's easy to get in the habit of seeing your clothes in a certain way. Your black jeans go with tops X, Y, and Z, that one stripey skirt can only go with that crop top you got specifically to match it, and certain colors can only go with their designated mates. But this kind of thinking neglects an all-too-real (and life-changing!) reality: all of the pieces in your closet — from stripes and florals to denim, gingham, and even leopard – can be mixed and matched in ways you probably never even thought of. The trick to remixing your wardrobe is all about mastering a few simple tricks and training your eye to see the untapped possibilities. And once you do, you have a whole new world of outfit options at your fingers — without having to buy a single thing.

In partnership with TRESemmé's Beauty-FULL Volume Reverse Wash System, I'm showing you just how easy your own closet remix can be. The following seven looks don't look insane, because when you're mixing and matching like a pro (sorry, just dubbed myself a pro) the results of traditionally "mismatched" combos can actually look totally cool and put-together. So don't separate your plaids and stripes just yet, because your future awaits:
