I’ve started a note on my phone called Outfit Starters. It isn’t complete outfit ideas, but rather, pairings that pique my interest right now. It could be colors, accessories, anything really. My current list includes:
- khaki + grey
- ballet flat + anklet
- bike shorts + cowboy boots
- camel + blood orange
- parachute pants + clogs
- chain necklace + cord necklace
Take this outfit for example. Denim on denim is a classic, but it hasn’t been feeling all that exciting to me lately. However, I have been really excited about the chain necklace + cord necklace pairing lately. So I actually started building the outfit with those necklaces as my starting point. The denim and denim just kind of fell together and I ended up loving the look.
I’ve been amazed to see how these little ideas can propel me to full outfit status before I know it. The key is to keep this list edited, and only include things that feel energizing right now. Sometimes you don’t need a full outfit idea, just a spark to get started.
