12 Ways to Wear the Versalette This Summer

It’s almost time for another #Versalette Challenge! We’ve been doing this every summer (and winter!) since launching Seamly.co almost two years ago.

This summer’s #Versalette Challenge takes place June 10 – 20. During those days, create five looks with your Versalette and use the tag #Versalette to enter. Last entries will be accepted on June 20th at midnight EST. After that, our three judges (you’ll meet them soon!) will choose a winner, who’ll get a $100 gift card to Seamly.co, plus a few other gifts from friends. Stay tuned on Instagram :)

To celebrate and get inspired this time around, I put together twelve #Versalette looks for summer. I tried to mix in more work-appropriate looks (adding the Stretch Blazer makes that easy) and outfits that can easily be modified for work.

The first time I donned a Versalette was back in 2011. My style (and my lifestyle) has changed a lot in the last four years… I’ll admit, I am always surprised with how the Versalette can change with my taste. The basic Versalette design hasn’t changed that much, but how it’s accessorized and paired can turn it into a COMPLETELY different garment, every time, every season, every year.

The Versalette and I have been on the ultimate roller coaster these last four years, and there’s a reason it’s still around. Try as I might to move on, it keeps coming back. It keeps surprising me. It reinvents as I do. It’s this oddly magical thing that is so much a part of my life that it would (and will) be WEIRD when someday, it’s gone.

For now, it continues to push my styling creativity, and gives me a chance to create something completely new every time. I hope it can (and does) do the same for you. ♥︎

Hi! I'm Kristin, the founder / designer at Seamly.co. A few years ago, I became obsessed with sustainable fashion, co-founding {r}evolution apparel and Kickstarting "the Versalette" -- without knowing how to sew industrially or draft a pattern. Now, I'm going back to the basics, and learning how this big fashion machine works...
