Everyone needs a go-to outfit; something that works every time without fail. My go-to outfit always includes a comfy pair of pants, tee shirt or button down, and scarf. Those three elements can always be pulled together in a way that feels comfortable, and looks decent, in my opinion. That’s why I’ve got a pretty robust collection of tee shirts and scarves.
I used to think it was boring to have a signature look like this, and constantly pushed myself to buy new silhouettes, random coloured items, and even some really loud prints. Ironically, when I went that route my closet was a nightmare, and I never had anything to wear. Now I know what works for me and have no problem owning multiples of the same type of items.
Here are a few other items that I keep in my closet as go-to’s, maybe it will inspire to you to build a ‘stock’ wardrobe to work with?
? Tees & Scarves – I like to stock up on tees when they go on sale at GAP, and tend to go for those with a stripe, because they pair well with printed scarves. Almost my entire scarf collection is from Bluenotes & Ardene Accessories. If you wait for the sales you can buy three of them for $10.
? Quirky Prints – If you are new to prints start with polka dots and stripes. A simple outfit like jeans and a tee looks polished if you wear a printed tee. I also like hearts, moustaches, and anchors, and paisley – they all seem to have an ‘evergreen’ quality.
? Long Necklaces – I know the statement necklace is very popular, but long nekclaces with a pendant seem to work better in my everyday life which involves a lot of jeans and tee shirt kind of looks.
? Fun Flats – As you’ve probably noticed from my pics, I consider leopard a neutral and think everyone needs a pair of leopard flats. I also like sparkles, and bold colours. A few inexpensive flats can really add some fun to your everyday outfits.
