If you’ve ever opened your closet full of clothing and said “I have NOTHING to wear!”, you are not alone! The problem usually isn’t about not having enough clothes, but not having the RIGHT pieces in order to pull outfits together. I’ve found that a few staple pieces allow me to pull together stylish outfits for any occasion.
The key is doing the legwork to find pieces that are a great quality and fit your body. That way they will last for years to come, and continue to be the staples you throw on day after day. Keep reading to see my key wardrobe pieces and why they have become my go-to style secrets.
Spring is always really slow to start in Minnesota, so I appreciate when the weather finally is warm enough to start wearing spring outfits. After wearing sweaters and boots for 6 months, its so nice to finally pull out short sleeves and dresses!
One style trend that I have been loving lately is the all white look. It seems like there are endless fashion “rules” about wearing white– but when your outfit is as polished as the looks below, no one will be able to say a thing!
Just be careful with your coffee while wearing these looks.
As spring approaches, it’s always so refreshing to start pulling out your spring wardrobe. It’s still kind of an awkward time of year for dressing, when it can still be cold, but you’re over sweaters and boots. Lately, I’ve been loving dressed up casual looks, and I thought I would share some outfit inspiration.
The best part is that most of these looks can be pulled together with things you probably already have in your closet!
The start of a new decade is the perfect time to overhaul your personal style. Over the last few years, I have been really trying to adjust my shopping habits from fast fashion items that I won’t wear in a year, to more classic pieces that look great and will last. This means less impulse buys and not always participating in the latest and greatest trends (but does anyone really miss cold shoulder tops from the one summer they were cool?).
One of the best classic style icons over the last few years is Duchess Meghan. Although she probably has a much bigger shopping budget than your average non-royal, her style is very attainable! She has been known to even wear piece from mass retailers like J Crew! I’ve pulled together some of her most classic looks and were you can find the look for less.
I always find dressing in the winter to be the most difficult. When it’s warm outside, you can just throw on a dress or top and skirt and head out the door. With the frigid temps, you have to be both fashionable and practical, which can be so much more challenging.
The key to changing up your winter looks is to utilize what you already have, but pair it with the right pieces to feel appropriate for the season. It’s also important to keep footwear in mind. Ensure your pants or skirt lengths work with the boots you intend to pair them with– this usually means that they are short enough to not interfere with the top of the boot.
In the world of constant social media, it’s hard not to be continually influenced by the images you see. But what works for other people might not always work for you. In fact, what other people like might not even be what you like or feel good in. Trends are moving so fast, it’s hard to even keep up with what’s cool these days.
When we are bombarded with the images curated by others, how do you find and keep your own unique style?
