>>> this morning on "today's" style, convertible fashion. with a few versatile pieces you can transform your wardrobe into multiple outfits to save you a lot of cash. to help walk us through this cheap but chic trend, jene luciani.
>> good morning, natalie. you can use these a bunch of different ways. actually very smart and these are all very affordable we're going to show you today. stow it's a win/win.
>> really trying to figure out and follow major construction.
>> is this dress one of those case cases or is it pretty easy?
>> no. this is so simple. the chameleon dress, great for a bunch of different body types, very flattering. it's a dress great for summer or winter. put a little cardigan over it. and then we've turned it into a skirt. as a skirt here, it has the ruching typically over the bust over the tummy. it helps to mask the tummy area, if you don't like that, and also takes it from spring to winter. really multiseason. this is $88.
>> okay. now tell me about this dress you have on your side.
>> this is the himina valero dress. here we have it as a dress. you know how you buy a dress and it's too short and you can't wear it or it's too long and you have to pay to have it hemmed? here it's a dress then it pulls up into a tunic length and then you can also turn it into -- those are undies there --
>> a really cute top. so, again, a bunch of different ways.
>> let's move on over to bras.
>> and the convertible bra is a big thing. lots of shirts, blouses and you need to find the bra that goes with it best.
>> you may be shocked of how many women don't know about the convertible bras. this one is from playtex. i love this that it has straps like a regular bra. you get a normal convertible bra, the straps are over here. it gives you that full support especially for a fuller busted woman so you can still make a crisscross, halter, whatever you need to do with it.
>> adjust the length of the strap?
>> over here, sports bra .
>> this is the bandini from barely there. everybody goes crazy for this bra. kind of like the sports bra but also great for everyday run ining around. best part is that you can layer it. you can pull down one strap. it's meant to peak out under a tank top . it's $22 for two of them.
>> great deal.
>> exactly. these are tights.
>> convertible tights?
>> you've never seen anything like this. that's what's so cool about these. these are from hanes, $9.99. we love our leggings, too. why not get them two in one? these actually convert, as you can see here.
>> you pull the foot over?
>> i think we have a little demo here. what happens is that they have a little toe pocket and you slip your toes in there. that's how they become the tights.
>> brilliant. why didn't i think of that?
>> nice and opaque, sucks you in.
>> becoming a real fashion statement over your boots, these boot warmers as a way to dress up your boots.
>> these are the coolest thing. these are huggers. they're kind of like a sock that goes over your boot. as you can see, we really dressed up some sort of plain boots. it prevents you from having to buy a new pair of boots next winter. turn them into a funky fashion statement .
>> with rain gear, these are booties you can put over your nice shoes?
>> exactly. you have those galoshes, ugly things that go over your shoes. these are fashionable ways to do that.
>> tell me about this, 15 seconds.
>> holds your ipad. comes off, becomes a portfolio case for men.
>> something for you guys, too.
>> thank you. kathie lee and hoda are getting fit, next hour. . .
