We all have those pieces in our closets reserved for special occasions. Maybe they have some sparkle, are covered in sequins, or are just fancier than what you'd typically wear on a given weekday... And usually these items sit in our closets until there is a party, wedding, or "event". Seriously what are we saving these things for?! You can dress down these items by pairing them with jeans, a denim vest, T-shirt, etc - and easily expand your wardrobe by rotating these special occasion pieces into everyday wear. That's the story of my black sequin sweater, formerly only worn once on New Year's Eve... which I solemnly swear won't happen again!
