The Concept

Versatility goes a long way… in your closet and your budget! Utilizing a mix-and-match wardrobe allows for flexibility and ease without breaking the bank, and is also the perfect strategy for putting together a back-to-school wardrobe for your kiddo. Take a look at how we mix-and-matched 10 items 14+ different ways! (Psst… There are even more ways that we didn’t show – the possibilities are endless!).

The Items

  1. Grey T-Shirt (Epic Threads) / Macy’s
  2. Silver Sneakers (Kate Spade) / Stride Rite
  3. Black Flats (Sperrys) / Stride Rite
  4. White Top (Arizona) / JCPenney
  5. Coral Leggings (Arizona) / JCPenney
  6. Moto Jacket / Gap Kids
  7. Black Jeggings / Gap Kids
  8. Denim Shirt / Gap Kids
  9. Floral Skirt / Gap Kids
  10. Floral Dress / Gap Kids

Tips to Master the Mix & Match:

  • Start by picking a color palette. If you are in need of some inspiration, a simple “color palette” search on Pinterest can do the trick.
  • Head to your favorite stores and search for items in that color palette that are both versatile and true to your kiddo’s personal style. Tip: A lot of stores (like Gap Kids and Macy’s) section their stores based off of color palettes, which makes picking items a breeze for you!
  • Try to achieve the perfect triangle! If you’re going to do a 10-item mix and match, the perfect triangle would look like this: 1 dress, 2 pairs of shoes, 3 bottoms, and 4 tops. Tip: Remember to pick items that can be layered (t-shirts, cardigans, long sleeves, button ups, etc.).
  • By achieving the above items, you have given yourself the freedom to mix & match to your heart’s desire! The best part? You can even have the confidence to let your kiddo pick out their outfit based on these 10 items!  No matter which way they pair them they can’t go wrong, and they can have fun creative freedom about what they wear!


I have the wonderful role of Social Media Coordinator for the West Acres Marketing, PR and Fashion team. I think that I have the best job in the world! I create content for the West Acres social media accounts and blog, which means that I get to share the latest trends, new arrivals, and all of the incredible happenings at West Acres with the community. When I am not snapping pictures for social media or writing blog content, I love to spend time painting in my art studio, testing out new baking recipes, practicing yoga, relaxing at the lake with family and friends, or playing outside on a pair of skis or my mountain bike.
