30 Ways To Wear: Grey Maxi Cardigan

I'm sharing another outerwear piece for this months 30 ways to wear post! Last month I showed you 30 ways to wear a camel trench coat, this month it's this lovely grey longline maxi cardigan (also known as a duster) from Jeanswest, in the cosiest Australian wool.

Every month I share something I've worn more than 30 times to give you some ideas and inspiration for how you can wear a similar piece in your wardrobe. Inspired by the 30 wears challenge I first heard about in The True Cost documentary.


30 Ways To Wear: Grey Maxi Cardigan


30 Ways To Wear: Grey Wool Maxi Cardigan Awayfromtheblue blog


It does feel a little strange sharing this cardigan right now, in the middle of spring when it's been packed away for a few weeks! It's a very thick and cosy Australian wool cardigan, perfect for a Brisbane winter, but not something that's been needed much in the hot spring we've had so far. I was so happy to realise I'd hit 30 wears with it though this year (35 to be exact) so I was eager to share it.

Cost Per Wear


I picked up this 'Alice' wool cardigan in the Jeanswest autumn sale back in 2017, so I've had it 2 and a half years. I paid $88.15 for it, and with 35 wears so far that works out to $2.50 a wear. Still more wears to go to reach the "$1 per wear" figure most people aim for, but I'm impressed that I've worn it so much so far. 35 wears over 3 winters is about 12 wears a year, and given that our winter weather barely lasts three months in Brisbane that's a great number! It's something I like reaching for over and over when it's chilly.

It is definitely showing its age, there's a lot of pilling on it as it's been worn and washed. I've run a fuzzball remover over it a few times but it's quite a thick wool so I'm not sure you see much of a difference, ha! It's still so cosy and comfortable though so I will continue to wear it, nothing wrong with pieces looking a little lived in! It's expected for wool to have pilling over time I think anyway.

Grey Maxi Cardigan And Bright Jeans

A nice neutral, long cardigan like this is wonderful to wear with different coloured denim! I love wearing my red, green and purple skinny jeans with this cardigan, it's a fun and colourful way to stay cosy through winter. This longline cardigan looks great with skinny jeans in any shade.


Grey Cardigan and Printed Jeans

Of course it's not just colourful jeans I'll wear with grey maxi cardigan with, I have a couple of pairs of printed jeans too and this cardigan works equally well with printed denim. Pairing this cardigan with the Sass & Bide chevron printed jeans is a frequent go-to, as you can see! If you're a fan of leggings, you could try printed leggings instead.


Maxi Cardigan And Scarves

This wool cardigan is so cosy in winter, but sometimes you need a little extra layer to keep you warm, especially on a windy day. A big blanket scarf comes in helpful, and with the cardigan being a neutral plain block colour you can pick any printed scarf to wear with it. Leopard is a favourite of mine!


Longline Cardigan With Jeans and Boots

Sometimes a scarf, wool cardigan and jeans just isn't enough on a cold day, so you have to pull out the boots as well! The longline of this cardigan looks so great when paired with tall boots, although as you can see in the last photo there ankle boots work just as well.


Grey Cardigan With Grey Jeans

Going monochromatic and pairing a grey cardigan with a grey pair of jeans lets you have more fun with the res of your outfit - either picking bright and colourful accessories like scarves or shoes or bags, or a brightly coloured tee to break up all the grey. I like matching things together, and a grey cardigan and jeans are a great combination.


Maxi Cardigan With Skirts And Dresses

I do wear this grey maxi cardigan a lot with jeans, but I've worn it with dresses and skirts too! These three outfits show you how you can wear a maxi cardigan with a maxi dress, pencil skirt, or maxi skirt. It's a nice cosy warm layer to add on top of a skirt or dress.


Grey Cardigan With Simple Tops and Jeans

Of course, the simplest outfits are the best! A neutral grey maxi cardigan like this is the perfect throw on and go layer on top of a simple jeans and tee (or jeans and tank!) outfit when it's a little too chilly for bare arms. It's fuss free as it really does go with everything, as you've seen from these 30 different ways to wear it.

30 Ways To Wear a Classic Camel Trench Coat #30wears Challenge

For this month's 30 wears challenge I'm sharing another wardrobe classic, my camel trench coat. It's a must have piece for the cooler weather!

Each month I look through the blog archives and find something I've worn 30 times or more to create this wrap up post showing you 30 ways you can wear a similar piece from your own wardrobe. Inspired by the 30 wears challenge I heard about in The True Cost documentary. It's a challenge to slow your shopping by ensuring each piece you buy will be worn 30 times or more and to reduce the environmental impact of fashion.


30 Ways To Wear: Camel Trench Coat


30 Ways To Wear A Camel Trench Coat | #30wears | away from the blue blog


This trench coat hit 30 wears quite quickly - I don't have a lot of winter coats in my wardrobe so this is worn at least once a week to the office in winter, and on colder spring and autumn days. Unlike in the northern hemisphere where a trench is more of a spring or autumn piece, this cotton twill fully lined trench coat is thick and cosy and perfect for a Brisbane winter!


Cost Per Wear

Worn more than 60 times on the blog I really wish I could remember the price I paid for it to calculate cost per wear. I remember buying it on sale at the outlets when shopping with my mum - it was massively reduced, definitely under $50, as it was out of season and one of the buttons was falling off. I bought it and set it aside for the next winter (after my mum fixed one of the buttons!). I had it before my blog, so more than 8 years ago. Given that I've had it more than 8 years and worn it faithfully every winter, I'm sure it's less than the '$1 per wear' figure most people aim for to get value for money. I'm really pleased with this purchase and don't see me getting rid of this coat any time soon!

Everyone needs a classic camel trench in their wardrobe, and this post covers just some ways you can wear it!


30 Ways To Wear A Camel Trench: Video Style






Camel Trench Coat With Burgundy

You'll see a few go-to colour combinations come up in this post! While camel is a great neutral and goes with every colour in my wardrobe, there are a few colour combinations I repeatedly try with this trench. Burgundy is one of them. While I love my burgundy pants with the camel coat, I do like other burgundy pieces like a scarf or dress.



Tench Coat with Monochrome Black Outfits


adding a cmael trench coat to a monochrome black outfit 6 ways to wear | awayfromblue

Black and camel is another frequently worn combination. While I have added in some other colours to these outfits with accessories, the outfits themselves are monochrome black. Classic little black dresses or a black top and pencil skirt together, a camel trench coat is a great topper with a monochromatic black outfit.


Camel Trench Coat and Jeans


ways to wear camel trench coat and jeans  | awayfromtheblue

While I wear my camel trench coat frequently to the office with more formal outfits, it also looks great worn more casually with jeans. You can see a couple of the outfits here are older ones as I last wore blue jeans 2 years ago! Any colour of denim looks great with this neutral camel trench coat though.


Trench Coat and Printed Outfits



Of course, being a classic neutral shade, a camel trench coat works with all kinds of printed outfits. it's the perfect neutral topper to a colourful print mixing outfit, or an easy choice with a printed dress!


Camel Trench Coat and Sheath Dresses

I love a good sheath dress for the office, but all the ones I have are short sleeved or sleeveless. This trench coat is great topper for cooler weather, it keeps me warm and works perfectly with the prints on the dresses, no matter how bold they are! Just like with the other printed outfit options above. A sheath dress and a trench coat is staple formal office style.


Trench Coat and Pencil Skirts

Another work outfit option, a pencil skirt pairs equally as well with a trench coat as the dresses above. You can go with a classic black one, or have a little more fun with colourful printed or textured pencil skirts. It's the best neutral outfit topper no matter what skirt you wear. This trench coat really does go with everything!

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt

A  new month, a new 30 ways to wear post! It's been a while since I featured a maxi skirt, and I am actually surprised that it's taken me so long to hit 30 wears with this chambray one!

Each month I go through my archives in the blog to find things I've worn 30 times or more to meet the 30 wear challenge, and compile all the times I've worn something into a helpful guide like this showing you how I've remixed things.

30 Ways To Wear: Chambray Maxi Skirt


30 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt AwayFromTheBlue blog pinable image


The first 30 wears post I ever did was with a maxi skirt, but the last time I featured one was almost a year and a half ago, definitely overdue a ways to wear post with a maxi skirt for this series! This chambray maxi skirt is a stunner too! A sale purchase over 3 years ago, it's something I found through another blogger and fell in love with. I had to wait until it went on sale to get this, as I had to budget in the fact that I'd need to have it taken up, being petite. It's from the Noisy May range for tall people so there was quite a lot to cut off! 😂


Cost Per Wear

Cost per wear is a little tricky to calculate as I can't remember how much the alterations were! The skirt alone was just $24.49 and I've worn it 31 times since then, so it's under the $1 per wear that seems to be the goal most people aim for. If you add alterations as well though I would still have more wears to get that $1 a wear figure, but I know this skirt will be worn a lot more in future.

As someone who loves denim and maxi skirts, a chambray maxi skirt was an obvious choice and I really enjoy wearing this!


30 Ways To Wear Chambray Maxi Skirt: Video Style





Chambray Skirt With a Bright Top


4 ways to wear a chambray maxi skirt with bright tops | away from the blue

The beautiful blue chambray skirt is a perfect pairing with bold block-colour tops! I love a good bright coral or pink tee or tank, or a longer sleeved teal henley for cooler weather. This is such a fun skirt to wear other colours with as blue goes with most of my wardrobe!



Chambray Maxi Skirt With Yellow


3 outfit ideas with yellow and chambray maxi skirt | away from blue


Calling out this colour option for you separately from the brights section above, as I love wearing this chambray skirt with yellow! Blue and yellow is a favourite and cheerful colour combination I love to wear, and enjoy pairing different amounts of yellow with this blue skirt - a little bit like a yellow bag, or a larger amount of yellow like a mustard cardigan or tee.


Maxi Skirt In Monochrome Outfit


monochrome maxi skirt outfit ideas 3 ways to wear | awayfromtheblue

The colour combinations above are fun to try, but you can also go the easy route and wear a monochromatic outfit with a maxi skirt. this blue chambray skirt is a great pairing for a blue tank, tee or blouse, and as you can see I'm wearing it with 3 different shades of blue here. You don't have to match the shades of the skirt and top exactly to create a monochromatic outfit!


Maxi Skirt And Graphic Tee


how to wear graphic tees and chambray maxi skirt | awayfromblue

A graphic tee looks great with denim - and not just denim shorts and jeans! You can mix it up a little and pair a graphic tee with a chambray maxi skirt for a different look. This is such a nice combination for a hot day, and creates a slightly different outfit from the ones above where I've worn the skirt with bolder block-colour tees.


Chambray Skirt and Stripes


striped top and chambray maxi skirt 4 outfit ideas | away from the blue

Just like the graphic tee set of outfits above, stripes and denim is another classic go-to outfit for me. there's something so simple about denim and stripes! I like pairing striped tees and tanks with this skirt. As it's a plain block-colour skirt, you don't have to worry about print-clashing when you pick a striped top to wear with it.


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Layers


layering ideas with a chambray denim maxi skirt outfit different seasons | awayfromtheblue

Chambray isn't just a summer fabric for me, I like to get wear out of this maxi skirt year round. that means adding layers when it gets a little cooler. It could be as simple as adding a kimono over your maxi skirt, or extra layers on a winter day like a cardigan and scarf. A leather jacket works well with a maxi skirt in winter too, particularly paired with ankle boots to keep you cosy!


Maxi Skirt and Knit


3 ways to wear maxi skirt and knitted jumper pullover outfits | away from the blue

Another winter outfit idea is to wear a cosy knitted jumper with a maxi skirt! It's such a simple outfit to wear and so incredibly comfortable. I love being warm and cosy in winter so I've worn a jumper with this maxi skirt a few times. You may need to add some extra layers like scarves, ankle boots and leather jackets if it's very cold, or even a pair of leggings under your skirt!


Chambray Maxi Skirt and Summer Tanks


4 summer tank outfit ideas with chambray maxi skirt | away from blue

Saving the simplest outfit for last - for a hot summer day, just pick this light chambray maxi skirt and add a plain or colourful tank. Simple fuss-free summer dressing for the heat! The lighter fabric of this maxi skirt means it billows around nicely as you walk, creating a cool breeze on the hot days. A great summer outfit choice!

30 Ways To Wear: Purple Balenciaga Work Bag

Returning to the 30 wears series! I skipped it last month as I wasn't organised enough to plan it in advance with our Europe trip! In this usually monthly series, I pick a piece from my wardrobe I've worn over 30 times and go back through my blog archives to show you some of the ways I've worn it. There are a lot of different clothing choices and colour choices when you're wearing a purple bag.


30 Ways To Wear Purple Balenciaga Work Bag

30 ways to wear purple Balenciaga Work Bag | away from the blue blog


Cost Per Wear

I bought this bag at the end of my 6 month no shop challenge (that turned into an 7 months noshop in the end). While it was a bag from my bestie's wardrobe she no longer wanted, and so massively reduced off the retail price, it's still a Balenciaga so was a big splurge at $1,200. After 37 wears I'm still nowhere near the $1 a wear figure most people aim for. But as this bag is something I expect to be treasuring and loving for decades to come I'm sure I'll be reducing the cost per wear down nearer that figure over time!


30 Ways To Wear Purple Balenciaga Work Bag: Video Style



Balenciaga Purple Work Bag With Black and White

The simplest of all the ways to wear a bright bag - pick a neutral outfit and then use the bright bag as a pop of colour. I love how much the purple Balenciaga work bag stands out against black and white, it's such a fun way to accessorise.


Balenciaga Work Bag With Pencil Skirts


5 ways to wear a purple Balenciaga work bag in the office | awayfromtheblue

My work bag goes to work with me a lot! The big oversized Balenciaga work bag is perfect if you need to carry a lot of things to the office, and as you can see in these pics it works so well with a pencil skirt. Just add a blazer for extra formality if you're worried a big purple bag is a big too casual for your workplace.


Purple Balenciaga Work Bag with Blue


4 outfit ideas blue and purple combination with balenciaga work bag | awayfromtheblue

There are a lot of different colour combinations you can try with a purple bag! I like wearing blue and purple together, so it's nice to wear a blue outfit and add a touch of colour with the purple bag. From deep navy to lighter and brighter blues, this raising purple Balenciaga work bag is great with so many different shades.


Balenciaga Work Bag With More Purple


5 ways to wear a purple balenciaga work bag with other purple pieces in your outfit | away from blue

If you have followed along with my blog for a while, you will know I like a little bit of matchy-matchy! If I'm wearing a bold bag like this purple Balenciaga bag, I like to match it with a little bit of purple in my outfit. From the print of a dress, a big blanket scarf, a purple cami or tee, or even a subtle match with a purple necklace, it's a good way to make your outfit look more cohesive. And as you can see, the shades don't need to match exactly!


Purple Balenciaga Work Bag with Pink


3 different ways to wear pink and purple with Balenciaga purple work bag | away from the blue blog

Another colour combo I love is purple and pink! These three outfits showcase beautifully how the purple Balenciaga work bag goes so nicely with pink - no matter the shade! I really like it with the pastel pink pencil skirt, but the hot pink necklace and pink printed tank are great combinations too.


Balenciaga Work Bag with Pink and Blue


colourful outfit ideas with Balenciaga raisin work bag pink purple and blue | awayfromblue

These outfits put the points above together! While it's nice to add two colours to an outfit, I've grouped my favourite colour combos above to create pink, blue and purple outfits of 3 colours. Again with different shades and different levels of colour - with the big blush blazer and blue printed dress, to more subtle with the pink fern print on the black dress and cobalt scarf and purple bag. Nice and colourful - even in the middle of winter!


Purple Balenciaga Work Bag With Prints


4 ways to wear a purple Balenciaga work bag with printed outfits | away from the blue

A plain, block colour bag is an easy outfit option with a print. You don't need to worry about the prints clashing, you can pick a bold bright bag to compliment any print you're wearing (although as you can see I'm partial to wearing it with a blue print!).

30 Ways To Wear: Zara Navy Printed Shift Dress

I'm thrilled I've hit 30 wears with this dress so I can finally dedicate a post to it! An impulse buy from Zara during a trip to Sydney, before we had a Zara here in Brisbane. This dress is something I love wearing.


30 Ways To Wear: Navy Shift Dress


30 ways to wear #30wears challenge: Navy Zara printed tunic shift dress


Cost Per Wear

I can't calculate cost per wear with this dress sadly as I forget how much it cost. I did buy it back in September 2012! It's taken me around 6 and a half years to hit 30 wears with it, despite really wanting to hit 30 wears back in 2018, as it's not the best length for days with toddlers. If you're running around and bending over and picking things and children up the tunic style can feel a little short. Of course there are some ways I can work around that, that I've shown below.

Another factor affecting the cost per wear calculation is that I actually managed to tear this dress a few years ago. I had to have it repaired, so that cost would factor in as well. I can't remember how much that cost though either! 😂

Navy Shift Dress With A Pop Of Colour


4 ways to wear a navy printed tunic dress with a pop of colour | awayfromblue

I'm all for adding a little extra colour to an outfit with accessories. And this navy dress is the perfect neutral piece to really let the bright accessories pop! A necklace, bag or jacket, all look great with the neutral navy backdrop. I like red with the navy, but green works well too.


Belting a Printed Shift Dress


3 outfit ideas with a printed shift dress belted | away from the blue

This is probably one of the simplest ways to change up a dress, just add a belt! It's a nice way to make an old favourite feel a little fresher, just by adding another accessory.


Tunic Dress Worn As A Top


5 ways to wear a navy printed shift dress as a top work and casual | away from blue

As mentioned above, this tunic length can feel a little short some days. The longer sleeves and modest neckline mean this top is great for the office, just too short to meet the dress code guidelines. Adding a pencil skirt over the top solves that problem and instantly creates a professional outfit from a casual dress. It works well for stay at home mum days by tucking the tunic into some shorts too!


Navy Printed Shift Dress With More Blue


3 ways to wear a navy printed shift dress with blue accessories monochromatic style | awayfromblue

It's no secret blue is my favourite colour - I love wearing every shade of it! A neutral navy shift dress is a great excuse for me to add more blue to my outfit - even if the shades don't match, the blue on blue colour combination is one I really enjoy wearing. Denim jackets, or blue bags, anything goes!


Shift Dress With Ankle Boots


outfit ideas navy shift dress and ankle boots awayfromtheblue

A dress and ankle boots is a great way to extend the life of your summer dresses into spring and Autumn - it's a classic combo and one that works so well with a shift dress like this.


Printed Tunic Dress With Converse

Of course if boots aren't your thing, a dress and Converse works well too! They are a really practical choice for mum life and like the boots above it's a combination I wear in spring and autumn quite  a bit.


Shift Dress In Winter


how to layer up a summer shift dress for winter 4 outfit ideas | awayfromtheblue

You can extend the life of your favourite summer dresses by wearing them in winter too! With a cosy pair of tights or leggings underneath, and a few more winter layers. This is a great option for running around with the kids too, you aren't as worried about the tunic length if you have a pair of leggings underneath.


Printed Shift Dress In Pregnancy


4 ways to wear a printed shift dress in pregnancy | away from the blue

This dress was the best in all trimesters! It was simple and fuss free and as you can see the print is great at hiding a baby bump for the early second trimester. It was nice and light to wear when pregnant in heatwaves. Although it did get a little short in the third trimester with the bump pulling it up, nothing a pair of leggings couldn't fix!

30 Ways To Wear A Blue Lace Pencil Skirt: #30wears

I've been looking forward to doing this 30 wears post for a while, this textured blue lace pencil skirt is a firm favourite!

With this monthly series, I pick a piece from my wardrobe I've worn over 30 times and go back through my blog archives to show you some of the ways I've worn it. Inspired by the #30wears challenge!

30 Ways To Wear: ASOS Blue Contrast Lace Pencil Skirt

30 ways to wear a blue lace pencil skirt #30wears | awayfromtheblue blog


There are a few reasons why I've been looking forward to doing this post. This is a pencil skirt that is a frequent reader favourite whenever it pops up on the blog, it was an impulse sale buy that really has worked for my wardrobe, and something I've hit much more than 30 wears on. A few of those wears were way back at the start of my blog so I wanted to wait until I could use a little more recent pics and less of the early days headless shots for this compilation post!

I bought this skirt after falling in love with it in a photo online - I think it may have been a photo of Wendy's but I'm not sure after all these years. I was sad to see it was sold out, and thrilled when it was in stock in my size and on sale a little later. I hurriedly bought it back in January 2012. The elastic waist means it still fits now just as it did pre-babies and during my pregnancies!


Cost Per Wear


Luckily I have the old email confirmation of my ASOS order to know that I paid $35.49 for this skirt 7 years ago! After wearing it more than 37 times, it's down to less than a dollar per wear, that magic figure that seems to be the goal for most people. Pretty good CPW for such a statement piece! Surprisingly, I don't have any of the other things I bought from that ASOS order still in my wardrobe, including a plain black pencil skirt I purchased at the same time. Apart from one small snag to the lace, this skirt still looks as good as new.

Blue Pencil Skirt With Grey

This is a theme that will pop up a lot more often as you scroll through the photos in this post - I really like pairing blue and grey together, so I do that frequently with this navy lace skirt. I particularly like that darker charcoal grey tee with it!


Lace Pencil Skirt Belted

Remember a few years ago when everyone belted everything?! I think it worked really nicely with this pencil skirt, I should probably try it again soon! I think belting this high waisted skirt really helped visually lengthen my petite frame.


Blue Pencil Skirt With Brights

From a bright handbag, bright scarf or just a bold brightly coloured tank, I love the way this blue lace skirt compliments other bright pieces in my outfit.


Lace Pencil Skirt With A Blazer

This blue lace pencil skirt is a work staple, and of course a blazer is an office essential too. The cream jersey blazer is frequently paired with this lace skirt as it matches the beige base background the lace is overlaid on.

When you're not sure what to wear with something, pick another piece in a similar colour! While the lace on this pencil skirt is navy, it works so well with different shades of blue. And with blue being my favourite colour, monochromatic blue outfits make me happy!


Blue Lace Pencil Skirt With Purple


4 ways to wear purple with a lace pencil skirt | awayfromblue

Blue and purple is one of those colour combinations I frequently wear. I like how the colours work together. You can try a lot of purple like a purple tank, or a little bit of purple with an accessory like a purple scarf or bag.


Lace Pencil Skirt and Winter Layers


4 ways to layer a blue textured pencil skirt for winter with scarves jackets tights | awayfromblue

This blue lace pencil skirt is a great spring / summer piece, but it works nicely layered up for winter too, the blue lace really stands out with black layers or tights. It's definitely something I wear more in warmer weather, but being a thick material it's not too cold to wear in the cooler months.


Blue Pencil Skirt With White Tops


4 ways to wear a navy textured lace pencil skirt simple outfit ideas with white tops | awayfromtheblue

Like most mums, white isn't my go-to colour! I do like wearing it when I'm in the office though as it is a little easier to keep white clothes clean when I only have my clumsiness to worry about and not two adorable little toddlers that could leave stains! When I first got this skirt, white was a frequent go-to with it, before I tried more of the colour combinations you've seen above. Nothing wrong with having a classic go-to option for wearing a statement piece.
