What to wear when you don’t know what to wear.

For the not so fashionable among us it can be a very daunting task when it comes to matching colours together while picking out an outfit. Let’s not even talk about prints. Its Spring time and its time for bright colours and bold prints but you might have some hesitation because you’re scared that what you put together will clash. I’ve been there I’ve spent many an evening racking my brain about what I want to wear to work in the morning. Often concluding that I have nothing to wear. I hate looking boring and wearing the same outfit twice. I always try to mix it up. I never want to look like I’m wearing a uniform. You know some of your colleagues will wear one pair of pants with a specific shirt every time as if it’s a set and they can only wear those two items together. That is what I’m talking about.

We’ve seen many fashion risk takers lately. People mix patterns and colours you’d never expect and somehow manage to still look cool. The rest of us that aren’t as bold know that we’ll end up looking like fools. So, what are we to do?

I would suggest to just keep doing what you’re doing. Most of us stick to neutral colours like black, grey and white, maybe even brown and navy blue. These colours normally match well with any other colour making it easy. I usually stick to black pants or blue jeans and then add colour somewhere else in my outfit. So, Id suggest keeping the most part of the outfit neutral and then adding one item of colour that pops. If you want to add more colour wear something that’s a shade darker or lighter than the one you’re trying so that they don’t clash. The same goes for prints. I normally look at the different colours in the print itself, choose one and that’s what I match the rest of my outfit with. I try to wear at least 3 colours at a time just to make it a bit more interesting.

If you’re confused here’s a list of staples I rely on for when I don’t know what to wear.

You can never go wrong with a pair of chinos they always save the day. I have them in different colours and shades. Jeans in dark blue, light blue and black give you some variety when it comes to casual wear. Plain white shirts are timeless so they don’t have time to clash with anything in your closet. A denim jacket is essential for me it compliments any outfit. Lastly plain white, grey, or black t-shirts are an outfit saviour on those confusing days for me. Then lastly I LOVE brown leather or suede shoes whether its sneakers or formal shoes. As the song says these are just a few of my favourite things. In another post Ill share some of my outrageous or shall I say risky fashion choices

I think I was wearing a denim jacket this day (not seen here) but you can never go wrong with denim. Oh, look brown shoes.

As you can see I do have a signature (uniform) style. Sigh…
