I have decided to start doing posts called "Two Ways" that will show you how to take a basic item and wear it multiple ways. Before buying any item, I try to think of at least two outfits I can wear it with. In my opinion, buying a piece of clothing and wearing it the exact same way every time is a waste of money! In an effort to save some cash and flex your styling skills try pairing a staple item with something unexpected.
The bright color of the sweater keeps the look feminine and exciting.

Break out of the typical "sweater, jeans, and boots" rut by adding a pair of colored denim and a funky necklace (although if you are wearing a bright color on top I wouldn't suggest also doing that on the bottom).
