This morning I was standing in my closet staring at all my clothes, frustrated as can be, thinking “I have nothing to wear.” Let’s be real, every once and a while, I think even the most put-together fashionistas just wish someone would tell them what to wear today or how to style that new blouse. A true testament to this is the age-old question “what are you going to wear?” which I personally text to my girlfriends at least once a week. But through my years of fashion trials and errors, I’ve created a few go to looks to wear when I’m lost, that always look stylish and effortless.
My go to outfit for any casual situation is dark jeans and a neutral colored top, some kind of cute statement jacket (this season I recommend a teddy coat!), sneakers, and some dainty and simple jewelry to jazz it all up. My t-shirt is by Vince, my coat is by op ed, my jeans are by Frame, shoes are by ZCD Montreal, and jewelry is Elizabeth Lyn.
I love blazers for work-wear, as they look very chic, with minimal effort. I wear a blazer (like this beautiful Smythe piece in the photo), black dress pants, a basic blouse, and some killer heels. I usually style the colours and fabrics of the outfit around the blazer as that is the focal piece of the outfit, so if you’re rocking a killer red blazer, an all-black ensemble looks great. My blazer is by Smythe, blouse and pants are by Vince, and pumps are DVF.
While this outfit may seem predictable to some, I’m a firm believer that classics are classics for a reason, and you can never go wrong with a little black dress, some drop earrings or a statement necklace, and some funky pumps. My dress is by Iro, my pumps are by Ted Baker, and jewelry is by Elizabeth Lyn.
In sharing these with you, I hope that next time you have no clue what to wear, you can take a little inspiration from me!
