Fashion ruts, they happen to the best of us (as I write this in my bathrobe and fuzzy pink socks). Let’s face the music people, fashion is glamorous and all but it’s also exhausting! Fortunately, I think I find it less exhausting than most which is why I continue to do what I do, but I still have those days when I need to seriously motivate to feel inspired.

So on those days when I’m just not feelin’ it, I have a foolproof formula that will get anyone out of that fashion rut.

REVERT TO THE CLASSICS

Classics, staples, whatever you want to call them, the easiest way to look chic without trying is to throw on silhouettes that are timeless. In the summer months, there’s nothing chicer than a wide leg trouser and a button down blouse. Add a little edge with your accessories to make the look pop.

AVOID BLACK

Nothing is going to make you look more basic than black on black. Sorry, not sorry. And may I add that it just perpetuates the aforementioned, rut? A little bit of black is OK, but when we start to rely on it to wear every day, we’re just perpetuating the lack of creativity.

INVEST IN TRENDS

While I typically stray from being too “trendy,” it’s important to push our boundaries so that we’re not afraid to try something new. And it’s kind of impossible to try something new if it’s not sitting in front of you. As each season comes, keep your eye on a few things that are trending that you wouldn’t regularly wear and make that purchase! Then on those days when you’re feeling, well, blah….you can throw on that trendy piece and walk out your front door knowing you’re anything but basic.

your content, whether it be on youtube or social media or on your blog, never disappoints! i will definitely keep these tips in mind on those mornings before school when i can’t decide on what to wear. i’ve always wanted to try wide-legged trousers because i see them everywhere in my favorite stores! but i’m quite a petite person, and i always feel as though they’re going to swallow me whole if i tried to wear them. do you have any tips? thank you so much, and have a great day!

Aww, Roxanne – that made my whole day. Thank you for sharing!

Love this post!! It’s so easy to rely on black head to toe when you’re in a rut! But adding an on trend piece or a pop of colour is enough to get you feeling inspired again! Thanks so much for sharing all your great content with us xx

Agreed! So glad you found this so useful!

Great post and tips! I must say though, I can’t cosign on not wearing black. There’s nothing like a sleek black on black look. It’s one of my personal faves. Love your outfit, by the way. Thanks for sharing!

Yes! I’ve been thinking for a while of getting a pair of wide leg trousers. Really like the silhouette and how they look so timeless!

Yours are beautiful!
