How to Plan Outfits for the Week
It’s hard work to look put together every day. Hair done, nails done, everything did—that’s a lot of #werk! Take it from the girl that snoozes no less than five times every morning, if you live a busy life (or, even if you don’t), sometimes sleep trumps fashion.
Check the Weather — Rain or Shine
One thing I've learned (the hard way) while living in New York: check the weather. #JFDI Not only will you save your shoes, but it'll be hard to feel frumpy and blah when you plan a cute outfit to go with your Hunter wellies. Don't forget an umbrella!
Inspiration is all around us. And while Instagram is a major source for me, I often look back at old runway shows and magazines for styling and color inspo. I recently started a moodboardon my closet door to keep me inspired while I'm pulling looks and getting ready in the morning. And, when in doubt, pull up good ol' Pinterest.
I usually dress according to my mood in the morning—am I feeling sexy or sporty? Do I want to look girly, or is it a boyfriend jeans kind of day? With that in mind, I like to pull a range of different looks that lend themselves to whatever mood I'm in, but still look put together.
Check Your Social Calendar
Whether you have a Tinder date, or an after-work networking event—these are things to keep in mind when planning ahead. Save your power-suit moment for Tuesday's networking event, and maybe the flirty dress with a denim jacket for date night. You get the idea!
Change it Up
Challenge yourself to wear pieces more than once. If you wore a dress a couple weeks ago, think of new ways to switch it up this week—maybe throw an oversize sweater over it, or layer a skirt over it to wear it as a blouse. The possibilities are endless, and if you come up with new ways to wear old pieces again and again, you'll never get bored of your wardrobe!
