Closet Remix

Breathe new life into the previous season's wardrobe workhorses with completely fresh takes on how to wear them, right this second.  See, old clothes can learn new tricks.

The Moto Jacket

Burberry Prorsum

How you USED to wear it...  

It's one of the best tried-and-true styling tweaks in the book: You threw this on to instantly transform any girlie dress- tulle, satin, sequined, whatever- from frofrou to fiercely rock and roll.

How to wear it NOW...

Continue using it for contrast, but this time add it to bring an edgy allure to minimalist pieces in white.  Keep the graphic motif going with sneakers that look as polished as they are comfortable.

Leather T-Shirt


How you USED to wear it...

A mainstay of any going-out ensemble, this slick top served to give your skinny jeans and statement necklaces some downtown cred.  On your feet?  Party-worthy heels of course.

How to wear it NOW...

Play with proportion and try super-sleek cropped trousers.  The strong shapes- along with clean, confident ankle-grazing boots-  seem starkly modern for daytime.  Push the artsy envelope with a boldly colored wrap coat and a jazzed-up tote.

 Pajama Pants


How you USED to wear them...

Was there ever a weekend uniform more blissfully relaxed than a pair of these silky trousers, especially when worn with a threadbare white T-shirt and gladiator sandals?  I think not.

How to wear them NOW...

Clean things up to create a laid-back alternative to a power suit.  An ivory blazer appears polished, but maintains a kicky vibe, while a rust-colored leather blouse ends warmth.  Navy suede heels come off as both purposeful and sexy.

Dressy Sweatshirt

Proenza Schouler

How you USED to wear it...

Thanks to countless street-style stars and off-duty models, this casual staple shed it's gym-only status and started popping up with tough leather leggings ad black ankle boots.  You followed suit, if only to make your Saturday morning latte runs that much more stylish.

How to wear it NOW...

Bring out its feminine side. Airy, wide-leg trousers and a cream colored boyfriend coat strike a soft note, while a burgundy envelope clutch and matching flats look plain pretty against the pink.
