Putting together outfits is not an easy task. That said, how hard could it possibly be? Sure, when presented with a multitude of options to choose from, even the best amongst us drop their weapons. Therefore, feeling overwhelmed is understandable.
When it comes to style preferences, some of us like to go all out, whereas others like to keep it simple. Perhaps the most significant advantage of going all out is that you do not really have to worry about your outfit lookingdull or boring.
As for simple and easy outfits, a part of the problem is looking too basic. There is an added pressure of being creative and innovative with your look. This is where we come in to help.
The following is a list of simple and easy outfit ideas that will help you make a definite style statement. Even in your laziest moments, these outfit ideas, although simple, will make you look and feel like a million bucks.
- Throw on a jacket to spice up your everyday jeans and tees
Give your everyday jeans and tee ensemble an instant upgrade with a jacket. Jackets are just effortlessly cool. Every jacket comes with its own style, aesthetic, and aura.
If you wish to keep your look casual and comfortable, nothing beats a denim jacket. Simple, versatile, and universally flattering, you can never go wrong with it. Complete the look with a pair of trusty sneakers, ankle boots, or ballet flats, whatever fits your fancy.
For those looking to pack on a punch with their ensemble, leather jacket for women is your one true calling. Leather jackets are effortlessly badass. There is something about their sexy and sultry aesthetic that just attracts all eyes, not that we are complaining.
You can opt for something like sleek and simple like a Harrington jacket if you aim for a cleaner and more polished outlook.
- Pair your basics with a fancy blouse
A dress code that quite a few amongst us struggle with is semi-formal wear. One of the easiest ways to nail a semi-formal ensemble is to mix and match formal and casual pieces in your wardrobe. If there is one foolproof way to amp up your average look into a head-turner instantly, it is with a fancy blouse.
Pair your everyday pair of jeans or skirt with a flirty and fancy blouse to elevate your look. Not only will you feel comfortable and at ease, but you will look like you actually put effort into your outfit. Accessorize with some heels, a matching bag, and some bling, and you are ready to turn heads wherever you go.
- Play with floral prints
Floral prints may seem intimidating to some, but they are everything but that. Vibrant and fun, floral prints are hot right now, so there really is no better time to push your boundaries and experiment.
Floral prints make an amazing style statement. Style a floral printed shirt with denim or leather pants, or a plain midi skirt. As for floral printed bottoms, keep it simple with a plain complementing tee, tank top, turtleneck, or button-down shirt. If you are feeling adventurous, try pairing floral with floral.
Complete the look with color-breaking accessories to add a fun pop of color to your ensemble.
- Keep it comfy in athleisure
If you are new to the concept of athleisure, think of it as an upgraded and more stylish version of sportswear. Athleisure is possibly one of the hottest trends right now. People love it. Moreover, why would they not? Who doesn’t like being comfortable?
If you are having one of those days when you just want to lounge in your sweats but look presentable, throw on your favorite athleisure set. If you do not wish to wear them together, you can style the pieces separately. Pair your hoodie with skinny jeans, sneakers, and a baseball cap. As for the pants, wear them with anything from a tank top to a dress shirt; everything works.
Our dreams have come true: sweatpants are cool now.
- Drape a blazer on top for a polished look
Blazers never disappoint. Classy, elegant, and incredibly chic, nothing quite compares to a blazer. If you wish to transform your look from basic to brilliant, just throw a blazer on top.
Whether it is formal office wear, a pair of casual denims and a tank top, or an easy-breezy dress, a blazer looks good on quite literally everything. Complete your outfit with matching shoes and accessories to look like the queen of sophistication.
- When in doubt, go monochrome
A monochromatic outfit is forever fashionable. When it doubt, play it safe with a monochrome look. Add interest to your ensemble with a contrasting pair of accessories, and you have a killer outfit ready to go.
If you think you need the exact same color to curate a monochrome look, then you are mistaken. The beauty of a monotone look lies in the shades. To create the perfect monotone look, play with different shades of the same hue, so your outfit does not look like one plain block of color.
Effortlessly chic, supremely elegant, and incredibly versatile, a monotone look never disappoints.
- Dress up your dresses
Dresses are probably the easiest garment to don. While some may think dresses are too basic or too boring, dresses are perhaps the most versatile garment that you can style in so many ways.
Style a basic slip dress over a button-down shirt or a long-sleeved tee. Throw a jacket or loose-fitting sweater on top for a warm and comfortable look. Wear your dress as a skirt by pairing it with a complementing top and cardigan. Wear your mini dress as a top by pairing it with a skirt or pants. Play with different dress lengths to switch things up. The options are endless.
- Let yourself loose in baggy jeans
Baggy, slouchy, boyfriend jeans made waves this year because they are the perfect amalgamation of everything good. Comfortable, chic, versatile, trending, effortless; we can keep going.
If you are someone who loves easy and simple outfits, we highly recommend investing in a pair (or two) of slouchy boyfriend jeans. You can wear them with quite literally anything from a tank top, a graphic tee, a button-down dress shirt, or a flirty blouse.
A hot favorite look this season with slouchy jeans is with a sleeveless, well-fitted button-down shirt, an overcoat on top, pump heels, a matching handbag, sunglasses, and chunky hoops for some bling.
- Parting thoughts
Making a style statement is not as overwhelming or stressful a task as it may seem. Style is personal, so there is no right or wrong way to go about it. All that matters in the equation is how you carry yourself in your armor.
Thus, if you wish to make an impression, strut with confidence. Even if you do not feel one hundred percent confident in your outfit choices, put on a show, and flaunt your style like nobody’s business.
