Are you tired of standing in front of your closet every day, staring at the piles of clothes that you haven’t touched in ages, complaining about having nothing to wear, and ending up wearing the same three outfits? It’s safe to say that we’ve all experienced this and even if sometimes you try planning your looks beforehand, it doesn’t take you too long to slip into the old habits. If you want to improve your situation, today we’ll give you three outfit ideas, whether you’re planning on going on a trip to a cabin and want to dress up in something nice and cozy or you’re simply looking for an easy outfit to wear to work.
Jeans and sweater
In order to have a high functional wardrobe you have to have some good-working basics and you can never go wrong with a classic jeans and sweater combo. With such a timeless pairing, what makes you stand out from the crowd is the details of your outfit, such as the fit of the jeans, the combination of colors, or the pattern of your sweater. Straight leg high waisted jeans should be the foundation stone of anyone’s wardrobe, man or woman, as they are perfectly suitable for nearly every occasion. As for the sweater, we suggest making your outfit more interesting with a pullover with unique patterns, for example an Irish wool sweater with Aran stitches. It will add a dash of elegance and refinement to your ensemble, while also keeping you warm and cozy wherever you go.
A full black look is the go-to choice if you’re not too sure what to wear to a formal event or if you want to spice up your work outfits. If correctly chosen, a monochrome outfit can make you look slimmer and taller and can even make people take you more seriously. The only rule you need to keep in mind is that black has plenty of shades and your clothes need to match each other if you want your look to seem luxurious and preppy. Combine a pair of classic black trousers with a button-up cotton or silk shirt and throw a wool coat over it. Another great idea would be to incorporate leather elements into your outfit, as this fabric is the hit of this winter season and it elevates a regular black ensemble; black leather belt or bag would make a perfectly suitable addition.
Cardigan over anything
When in doubt, throw on a cardigan! Do you find the jeans and sweater combo to be too plain for your taste? A chunky knit cardigan can make your outfit appear more elaborate. Are you having a hard time wearing a monochrome outfit and would like it to have more color? Throw on a cardigan in a bright shade of pink, green, or yellow for an eye-catching result. Is it too hot for a jacket, but too cold to leave the house with no outdoor clothes? A cardigan might be the garment that you’ve looked for. This garment can be worn with anything you could possibly think of and the best part is that it is practical at the same time. Maybe this is exactly why the singer Niall Horan has such a large collection of them!
