Ah, here’s an outfit I can get behind.
While the last couple of experimental outfits have been fun, I love getting back to basics.
I’d give this outfit an A. It’s 100% my style. Everything is soft and comfortable. The dress doesn’t really show wrinkles (or anything else). I’m loving the color palette of denim blue, shades of tan, and black. And I like having the option to add or remove warmth with the denim jacket and wool hat.
I’d wear this outfit to run errands during the day — and I’d also wear it out to dinner or to a friend hang out at night. Versatility for the win!
Give your sleeves a single roll / To give the jean jacket a bit more interest, I kept the sleeves buttoned and gave ’em a single roll, just for fun. I like the exposed wrists and more casual vibe.
Try a hat / Hats have this magical allure. They seem like such a good idea, but if you’re not used to wearing them, it’s easy to feel uncomfortable or awkward.
Here’s my solution if you’re trying to get used to wearing hats:
Wear a hat when it has a clear practical purpose, like sun protection or warmth.
Don’t worry about the way it looks — simply pay attention to your hat’s purpose.
In the summer I wear a hat for sun protection, so I’ll usually take it off in a restaurant and just set it beside me — unless I was eating outside and wanted some shade. In the winter though, I usually wear a hat for warmth, so I might just leave it on the whole time I’m inside if I’m feeling chilly.
Think less about how it looks, or what others think, or the “appropriate” places to wear a hat. Instead, simply wear it when it has a practical purpose. Leave it on when it’s serving your purposes and take it off when it isn’t.
Also, look for hats that have an adjustable inner band. That way, you can tighten it when it’s windy outside and you won’t have to worry about it blowing off.
I’m curious, do you feel confident + comfortable in a hat? Did it come naturally to you, or did you have to get used to it for a little while? Got any tips for us? Share away in the comments.
TWO more outfits to go, and then it’s recap time on Friday. We can do it!
