Our TODAY style editor and all-around professional girlfriend Bobbie Thomas is here with more bang-for-your-fashion-buck items thanks to these versatile buys.
Reversible jeans are hard to find because they are often difficult to get right. So kudos to Venus for offering up a design that features solid coloring on one side, and an on-trend print (plaid or animal print) on the other for an affordable $39. With a flattering fit to boot, they're great for traveling, those with tight closet space, and for any of us in need of a quick change.
Marla Wynne's reversible knit top from HSN hides some extra style secrets within its design. In addition to wearing the shirt as two different solid colors, you can also ruche, the sleeves to create a layered look, or tie and play with the different layers since they're smartly not sewn together at the hem. The dual jersey drapes beautifully and smoothly thanks to the extra layer of coverage for just $59.90.
Buying shapewear is complicated enough as it is, but Vanity Fair has simplified one aspect with their versatile, two-in-one Spinslip ranging from $21-26. One side features a straight neckline, while the opposite side features a dipped V. Thanks to a smart, tagless design, you can wear the camisole both ways, letting it hide under almost any blouse or top.
A personal fall and winter favorite of mine are reversible tights and socks from Spanx and Assets. At $15-40, the opaque options come in practical, classic color combos like black-brown and black-charcoal grey. These hosiery staples will take up half the space in your lingerie drawer while also expanding your options.
Either-or belt straps
Last but not least, you can find great two-sided belt straps at C. Wonder. They feature a neutral luggage color on one side and a vivid orange shade on the opposite side, or the classic black-brown pairing. To make it more noticeable, wear it with a fun monogram buckle. For $48, it's the smartest belt you'll ever buy.
