THE BEST OUTFIT IDEAS | 3 COMBINATIONS TO KEEP YOU CURRENT

Nothing to wear? Shop your closet for tons of outfit ideas you can easily put together. As a stylist I’ve been doing this to stage fitting rooms, pack clients, and create look books. Do try this at home and you’ll see all the outfits ideas you can make too.

1. THE BEST BASE

The key to the best outfits is a flattering core combination in a current style.

3 BEST BASES

A LITTE BLACK OR WHITE DRESS

JEANS & A WHITE TOP

A MONOCROMATIC TOP & BOTTOM

The trick is keeping your core pieces like jeans and a white top updated. Dated jeans are a dead giveaway. My Denim Guide will keep you current and help you shop for new jeans if you need them.

2. LAYER

Adding a third piece to even your most casual outfits instantly pulls a look together.

A classic third piece like a blazer or jean jacket helps draw lines on your body to enhance your silhouette. An updated layer like a cropped jacket or kitschy cardigan can make the pieces you’ve had in your closet forever look new.
