No Fail Outfits to Wear Again and Again
Sometimes coming up with new outfits can be exhausting. I like to experiment and come up with something new because that's what I think fashion is all about. But sometimes I just want to take it easy and not have to think. At the same time I don't want to give up on looking good just to keep it easy. Which is why I came up with easy no-fail combinations that I can wear again and again AND still get compliments.
1. The fun print dress. I hate when people tell me it's too much work to wear a dress. How hard is it really? Grab a cotton dress, zip it up, and now you're fully dressed! Bonus points when you go with a bold print since it looks like you really tried. My favorite is a striped dress; works everywhere, any time.
2. Jeans and a white blouse. Jeans are the ultimate easy, no fail outfit. Unless you're going somewhere fancy like Le Bec Fin in Philly, when you wear jeans you're good to go. The simple outfit of jeans on the bottom, white on top is appealing because it's a blank canvas. You can just wear it alone or spruce it up with accessories. When the weather gets colder, throw on a sweater. No fail, super simple.
3. A knee length skirt with a t-shirt. Just like a dress, a skirt can look glamorous without even intending to. Maybe not glamorous when it's paired with a t-shirt but at least like you tried. Sometimes this look can be tricky, especially when you're dealing with a patterned skirt. But I've been embracing pattern mixing more and more and everybody should. Just pick out a coordinating color in the pattern and there you go!
4. Colorful or printed shorts with a textured shirt. Again, when you wear prints or add a bit of texture, it looks like a lot of effort...when it really isn't. Eyelet tops, embroidered tops, anything with texture is easy to pair with something bold on the bottom. Bold bottoms aren't just reserved for shorts; there are plenty of printed bottoms that look great with simple top.
These four combos are my go-to time and again: when I'm packing for vacation, when I'm running late for an appointment, when I simply don't know what to wear. Getting dressed should be about making you feel good and NOT stressful!
