Let’s face it, we all have those mornings where we’re standing in front of our closets feeling dull, blah and completely uninspired, not wanting to wear anything. But really, there’s definitely no good reason to totally hate our closet, especially if we stock our collection wardrobe with a few key items that always guaranty to look good and simply chic, without trying too hard, even when we have “nothing to wear.”
Below are some of my items that’ll get us out of our dressing dilemma, no matter what mornings we wake up to!
I have been there many many times. Choosing what to wear can always be difficult when we’re under the impression that we really have “nothing to wear.” However, I believe there are some foolproof outfit combinations that will always seems to have save the day.
They don’t have to be super impressive or trendy, just simple and stylish outfits that can be dressed up or down to suit your style. As long as we have some of these key pieces in our wardrobe we’ll always know what to wear and the result will almost certain to look effortless and beautifully pulled together.
A Pair of trusty blue Jeans & A plain T-Shirts
- The blue jeans and t-shirt combination will always maintain a classic choice. It’s really the ideal casual kind of outfit to wear when you’re not sure what to wear.
You can make many variations to your look, depending on the colour and cut of your jeans or t-shirt.
Dress your outfit up with heels and glam accessories or keep it cool and casual with sandals and sunglasses.
Little Black Dress
- The little black dress is another wardrobe staple that will definitely takes us through a range of occasions.
A simple LBD can be worn day or night and dressed up or down.
You can create a range of different looks with just the one dress, depending on how you choose to style it.
Updating the look can be as simple as changing up our jewellery and accessories.
A Floral Dress or Neutral Colour
- The floral dress has become a wardrobe staple these days.
You could wear it alone, with a leather jacket, a blazer, or a denim jacket.
You can work all kinds of different angles with your floral dress, from flirty and feminine to nineties grunge inspired looks.
Just in case, you’re not a fan of florals you can always choose a printed or patterned dress instead. (some florals just does not work on me!)
Tailored Pants & Blouse
- This outfit combination can take your from day to night.
Every wardrobe should at least have one pair of tailored pants and a silky blouse.
Wear your blouse buttoned up and with a cardigan for a simple office friendly look, and then unbutton the top buttons and add some bling for a fun evening look.
Adjust the dressiness of your look by switching between heeled and flat shoes.
Tank Top & Black Skirt
- A plain tank top and black skirt can act as the base for many different outfit combinations.
Choose a skirt style and length that suits your #body shape and go from there.
Wear a tank top with a black skirt, heels, and compact clutch for a simple and stylish evening look or with a swing jacket and t-bar flats for something a little bit more retro and ladylike.
Simple Dress & Black Coat
- We can never go wrong with a simple dress and a thigh length coat.
A tan trench coat is one option while a basic black coat will also do the trick.
When the weather is cooler, I’ll add some tights and knee length boots to the look.
Striped Shirts & Denim Shorts
- Create a nautical inspired look for summer with a striped t-shirt and denim shorts.
A navy striped t-shirt is a classic item and looks great styled in all sorts of ways.
A striped shirt worn with denim shorts, a straw hat, and leather sandals would really look chic worn anywhere from the beach to the park.
- I like some trendy pieces too, for a feel of trend based look, all we need is one statement piece of clothing.
I’ll pick a trend that I like and incorporate it into my outfit in the form of a statement piece of clothing or accessory.
Even if the rest of our outfit is fairly simple, most of the focus will likely be on the statement piece anyway.
Our “Go To Outfit”
- Keep in mind the specifics of this outfit will vary from person to person, depending on their style.
Our go to outfit, however, is often one that we’ll find ourselves wearing over and over again.
It’s usually the outfit that always makes us feel and look good no matter what.
On those days when you think you have nothing to wear, your go to outfit is always a good choice.
The next time when you have one of those days where you’re convinced you don’t have anything to wear, think again! Many of these outfits mentioned above could easily be interchanged to create even more classic and stylish looks depending on our own styles.
So good luck with all the hassles we think we face each morning or at some point in our lives of having the dilemma of nothing to wear . . . Think Again! 🙂
Bonjour Tuesday! 🙂
