Our closets and drawers are filled with clothes, but we still have those days that we throw our hands in the air and claim to have nothing to wear. This article is for that early morning struggle.
I surveyed a handful of my friends, and we agreed most women have all five of these items already in their closets: a sweater, skinny jeans, a blazer, a T-shirt, and a statement skirt. Your classic sweater might be a crew neck or V-neck, it might be a simple tan or black, or it may be patterned like mine is above. As for your blazer, you might have it for work, or you might already work it into your daily life. There are many different cuts, styles, and possible colors; the one I’m featuring is a brown tweed one. Skinny jeans are comfy, stylish, and they can go with a ton of things. And finally, to round off the five items, I went with a statement skirt. Skirts that fit into this category include tulle, ruffled, sparkly, fringed, or just full and colorful ones.
Now that you know which items we’re working with, we can move onto how to inventively style them.
I wear jeans 90% of the time, so it’s important to mix it up and not just rock it with a tee. You can pair them with heels and a sweater to dress them up, or boots and a blazer to add sophistication.
