What To Wear When You Don’t Know What To Wear
Let’s be honest, ladies. With as much clothing we have stored away in our closets, sometimes it feels like we have nothing to wear. Having one of those days is completely normal and happens to even the most admirable fashionistas. To combat this styling roadblock, it’s always a good idea to have a few staple pieces in your closet for running errands, work, and a night out with your gal pals. So, when this feeling hits, don’t panic – we listed some of the classic fashion staples you’ll want to stash in your closet ASAP!
The Instagram Influencer Look
Imagine you just woke up at 11 A.M. and your Sunday brunch plans are in 45 minutes. Let’s face it: you don’t have time to put an overly complicated outfit together for an outing with your besties. Keep things simple and look effortlessly chic by mixing elements of casual and athleisure wear. Mirror the influencers you see on your Instagram feed by pairing comfortable joggers or leggings with a tie-knot t-shirt. These elements keep the outfit put together without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Set the atmosphere by rocking a t-shirt with a witty phrase or logo and keep the accessories basic – giving you the ability to mix and match in the future. Accessorize the athleisure look by wearing a satin-like bomber jacket. Adding this jacket will keep your look fashion-forward and comfortable at the same time. For those days when you don’t have enough time to style your hair, opt for your favorite baseball cap – easy to match with your best pair of sneakers. This outfit will have you feeling both comfortable and Instagram ready!
9-5 Fashion: Workwear Essentials
Building an office-ready look should never be as complicated as it feels. For those days when you want to dress to impress without thinking too much into it, try color blocking with neutral tones and on-trend styles. Some staples to keep in your closet include the currently trending paper-bag pant and camel toned trench coat. These pieces are great to mix and match, blending flawlessly with vibrant colors to help keep your closet sustainable.
The best part about a paper-bag style pant and trench coat is its versatility. You can take this look from day to night by changing your work flats to heels and turtleneck sweater to a sleeveless blouse. Finish off your look with bold accessories like long beaded earrings and reflective bracelets for when you have to run out of the office and head straight to dinner reservations.
The Little Black Dress
For a night out with girlfriends or just a regular date night, you simply cannot go wrong with the classic little black dress. For many of us, this dress has been there through thick and thin and repeatedly served as the solution to a “nothing to wear” problem. Although we’re not ready to let go of our ride-or-die favorite, try looking for ways to amp up this dress with pieces you already have in your wardrobe.
For colder winter months, pair your little black dress with thigh-high or over the knee boots to elongate the wear time of this dress on your calendar. For a classy date-night reservation, look for a statement heel. This can be an animal print during fall and winter, or something strappy and wedged for the summer months. Have fun accessorizing this dress with bold earrings and jewelry and don’t be shy when it comes to trying out those new makeup trends you’re seeing on your Instagram feed!
Turn “Nothing To Wear” Into “Something To Wear”
Although those days where you feel like you have nothing to wear are inevitable, be prepared with these basic staple pieces that are sure to make their way into your wardrobe. Keep elements of athleisure ready at all times and search for classic items like a trench coat and little black dress that you can keep in your closet for years to come. For these basic items, don’t be afraid to experiment with statement pieces and bold accessories. With these pieces in your closet, you’ll be able to face any fashion challenge that comes your way!
