LOOKING FOR THE VERSALETTE?

How I Wear the Convertible Pantsuit


by Kristin Glenn April 06, 2015

The Convertible Pantsuit has sold out a few times. We've been slowly replenishing them at the COsewn factory in Denver, and last week, they shipped to all our friends who pre-ordered! This week they're available for immediate shipping.

We're in limited supply 'cause they're going quick. There are about 15 left in olive, and 25 left in black.

Last week I tried out some new ways to wear (hello, pants!) and photographed in my new-ish studio in Brooklyn. I'm almost 5'8" and the olive pantsuit is shorter than I like it (I'm a drag-the-ground kinda' girl when it comes to wide-leg pants). So, you'll see a hack I did for the tall girls below. I would LOVE to see how you're wearing the Convertible Pantsuit out there in the wild! Use tag #seamlyco on Instagram - I'll share and repost a few so we can all be inspired. Here goes!

LOOK #1 - Worn as pants with the straps twisted around as a belt / tucked in tank (thrifted) and sandals / Native Clutter necklace.

LOOK #2 - Super simple, but I took the very bottom of the pants (they're stretchy) and tied them into a simple knot to create a harem-pant look. This is something totally different than what I've ever worn, but I think it looks really nice with the basic strap formation on the top. Next time I'll try a cropped jacket or vest over top.

LOOK #3 - Pants strike again! I haven't shown off the olive too much, and honestly, I wasn't sure if I loved it. But once I started playing with it (and seeing how many neutral pieces I had in my closet to pair with it) my mind changed. I really like the oversized crop top with the high waist, and when worn as "pants" I can pull them down a bit to be the length I like.

LOOK #4 - Just a classic, no-frills look. Next time I'll try a bold, thick belt. I meant to slip on the Stretch Blazer in light grey (but forgot) - I think that would make this 100% work-appropriate.

I used to hate posting photos of myself and what I'm wearing, but the more I do it, the more fun I have -- and the more I realize that rules don't exist and getting dressed is, and should be, fun. It's one more moment in the day to be creative, on your very personal canvas, and I think that's something to appreciate. I'm planning on hosting another Versalette Challenge in the next month or two (yay!). What else would you guys like to see styled / get inspiration on? Comment with any tutorials / style shoots / community inspiration that you'd like to see!
