Why have one when you could have two? It seems that reversible pieces have been steadily gaining in popularity. You’ve probably noticed this surge in recent months. Trendy stores like H&M, Forever 21, ASOS, and Zara have been stocking their shelves with plenty of multi-task items.

Just ask yourself: have you ever seen a bomber jacket with a floral print on one side and a shiny black material on the other? Or how about a statement necklace that was orange on one side and blue on the other? These reversible pieces have been popping up more and more lately. From jackets to jeans and accessories, it has never been easier to score two for the price of one.

There is no question reversible pieces are becoming more and more sought out. Why? Coming across a fashionable piece that can be worn in multiple ways gives you more options, allows you to expand your wardrobe (without creating clutter), and lets you maximize your money. A reversible piece is versatile – and what fashion lover doesn’t love the idea of getting more bang for your buck? Having two separate pieces can stretch out the lifespan and perceived value of the piece.

Reversible pieces certainly have their merits. Before you go buying anything and everything related to this trend…consider quality. There is no sense in spending an extra ten or fifteen dollars on a reversible bag that you don’t really like. Or spending more for a piece made of poor materials that are likely to fall apart. Just like any other piece in your wardrobe, it is important to think before you buy.

A tip? Try not to get caught up in the excitement. Yes, you are getting two pairs of pants you are snagging for the price of one. But take a good look at them and make sure they are pants you actually want to wear. It is also a good idea to spend a little more for quality. The piece you purchase will last even longer.

The reversible trend has arrived. Is it here to stay? Only time will tell. If nothing else, this trend signals a major shift in fashion. These days, people want more from their merchandise. Perhaps this can challenge designers…. or perhaps it will only add to the popularity of disposable fashion. At any rate, it is certainly something to think about the next time you hit the mall.

Do you like the reversible trend? Or do you think it is another flash in the pan?
