Sometimes, we just need to be reminded that we do have clothes. Most of us actually have more clothes than we wear or need.
If you have basics/staples/essentials (interchangeable words for the same thing, in my mind), then you always have something to wear.
The only thing you’re missing is inspiration.
And I’ve got plenty of it for you right here. Each of these outfits is built around wardrobe essentials you already have, and finished with chic and thoughtful accessories to create looks that are polished and pretty yet effortless enough for everyday.
(If you haven’t yet invested in the basics/staples/essentials, all of which are readily available for every budget/size/lifestyle, then you’ll want to start here.)
So here, 50 easy, everyday outfit ideas to inspire you to work with your own wardrobe and wear your clothes in fresh and fun new ways.
Outfits with Denim
Start with a simple pair of jeans, and the possibilities are endless, as you’ll see in this first (and largest) grouping of outfits. Sure, the jeans need to fit well and be flattering, but once you have that box checked, you can recreate any of the stylish looks shown here.
Outfits with Neutral Pants
This next category of outfit ideas features another standby staple, a neutral pant. You’ll find these outfit ideas flexible and inspirational. Replace the pieces in these outfits with items from your own wardrobe.
Outfits with Dark Pants
Finally, turn the trusty dark trousers that are hanging in your closet into the base for a cute, casual outfit you can wear in your everyday life.
I hope these outfit formulas and stylish pics have inspired you to wear your old basics in new and fashionable ways! Which of these outfits could you reproduce right now, with what you already have in your closet?
