Flare’s fashion team breaks down how you can make the most of closet standbys and give them fresh life for spring.

“Ditch the socks and roll your cuffs to adapt a starchy formal trouser for an after work affair–Dane Tredway, Assistant Fashion Editor

“Button up an oxford short shirt and wear underneath a fitted blazer for the ultimate in preppy summer chic.”  
–Erin O’Brien, Assistant Market Editor

“Have your tailor turn a boxy blazer into a gilet. Replacing old buttons with shiny black or gold makes the look a little nautical.”
–Mosha Lundstrom Halbert, Assistant Fashion News Editor

“Try wearing t-shirts or button down shirts under corset style tops and dresses, making them appropriate for the office.”
–Elizabeth Cabral, Fashion Director

“I’m going to chop some of the silk blend trousers that I bought last fall into shorts and leave them unhemmed so they fray like the suits shown at Prada.”
–Fiona Green, Associate Fashion Editor
