Living a life of efficiency isn’t just confined to your work life — here at RE we try to make all aspects of our lives as efficient as possible. In some cases, that means streamlining our wardrobes to help rid ourselves of decision fatigue and keep us from getting overwhelmed by the mundane. We’ve already talked about using a simplified subscription service for all your fashion needs. Now we bring you Jia Collection, a brand dedicated to providing busy women with multifunctional clothing.

Each item from Jia Collection serves more than one purpose — it’s a dress that is reversible to reveal a new colour pattern, or a cardigan that doubles as a dress.

It also means you can wear the same item of clothing multiple times in a week without anyone being the wiser. It’s smart fashion for smart women.
