Mix And Match Suits To Get More Looks


Purposely buying business suits and work clothes where several pieces are interchangeable, and can be re-combined into new office outfits, is a clever way to plan a professional wardrobe. Here is an example of 8 garments found at Macy’s, which are all interchangeable, and can be mix and matched in many ways. These 3 suit jackets and 3 bottoms can all be worn together. And the 2 tops can be worn with all of the suit combinations. The trick is to not buy one piece of clothing at a time when you shop – instead you can save the money you would have spent on those single items, and go buy 8 coordinated items at the same time. Some stores purposely plan their collections to make it easy to mix and match items. By shopping for several pieces of work clothes at the same time, you are more likely to end up with a professional wardrobe where many of the garments re-combine into new business suits easily.

Here’s math riddle for you – how many work outfits can you create by mix and matching the pieces in the above photo?

  2. Hi
    I just delivered my forst born 18months ago and I’m on the verge of slowly losing the excess weigh tI had put on to start and fell fresh and new. That would also include a wardrobe makeover which I’m so lost at. I live in Bahrain and i’m looking for Tops which i can wear one in – one out kinda way and all for casual wears.
    Would REALLY REALLY appreciate to hear from you.
