I’ve said it before and I shall say it again: multifunctional clothing pieces are the mvp of our wardrobes. They’re wearable, they’re easy to style and they serve several functions – what more is there to love? I would say though that what kind of multifunctional clothing piece that’s useful depends on the season. For summer, the items below are my favorites. For winter? Well, let’s talk about that in six months or so.
Multifunctional Clothes Summer 2020
I wrote an article on how to wear linen here and how to style the shirt summer 2020 here. Linen is a major fabric this summer with its breathable qualities. A linen shirt in specific is superb for summer as it can be worn as a shirt, a jacket and a crop top. A linen shirt with a denim skirt is a chic idea. Working your linen unbuttoned over a dress or a top turns it into a jacket. Great if you want to protect your skin from the sun or it’s a chilly summer’s night. Lastly, work your linen shirt as a crop top! Unbutton the last buttons and tie a knot by your waist. Work a dress under or why not a pair of high waisted shorts?
The slip dress is another wearable clothing piece. You can work the dress on its own, or you can turn it into a skirt if you layer it up with a blouse, a crop top or a sweater. The slip dress is also chic with a cardigan for a casual look or a blazer for a more formal one. A pair of heels will dress it up, a pair of sneakers will dress it down. The neutral style of the dress is great when it comes to styling too as it’s kind of like a blank canvas. So, let’s paint it pretty with some statement jewelries, colorful accessories and gorgeous hairdos!
Lastly, the scarf is a great multifunctional clothing piece. It doesn’t necessarily have to be patterned, but it’s a simple way of infusing more pattern and color into your life. A scarf can be tied around your neck, your bag, your waist and even used as a hair tie or headband. In other words, such a great way of adding color and a pattern to your outfit. If you’re working a simple summer dress, work the scarf as a headband! Or it the sun is quite burning, wrap the scarf around your shoulders!

What I like about your posts is that you always show us that there are many possibilities and that trends are important, but the most important thing as a fashionista is to take advantage of pieces that can be multifunctional and versatile. I have some pieces in linen and they are the best when it comes to combine them with other pieces, also these kind of scarfs since you can wear them even as an accessory in your bag or as a belt! This proves that fashion has a lot to do with creativity, not only with the pieces in your closet 🙂
All the best Mia!

I know In our last conversation I mentioned my need for a linen shirt because I do agree it’s a great summer staple. I’ve been experimenting with scarves lately, so I love that you’ve mentioned it here!
