What to wear when you don’t know what to wear? I think this question is something all of us face from time to time. You know the feeling: standing in your closet staring at your clothes in frustration. As I mentioned in last week’s post, I have been shopping my closet more in this post-baby season of life. I did it during pregnancy too as it was a time when I had a more limited wardrobe. I’ve found myself pondering this question more and more. My answer?
What to Wear When You Don’t Know What to Wear
- Start with your favorite pair of jeans.
- Pair with a casual, neutral top – Whether a sweater, tee, or blouse, pick a neutral color or stripe you’ve always loved. One of my favorite ways to do this is to go monochrome like I did today. If you’ve picked black jeans or grey jeans, select a black or grey top. If you’ve picked regular denim, consider a stripe or even a plaid. White denim pairs really well with chambray.
- Add an accessory – Opt for either a scarf or a great layer like a moto jacket (my go-to recently).
- Finish with your favorite shoe – I almost always pick a pair of ankle booties.
Outfits like these are never complicated but always chic and effortless. Out of all the things I post, these seem to be a reader favorite. Sometimes I think I need to make every outfit something really special and unique. While there is definitely a place for those combinations, the truth is this kind of look resonates with us all.
