It happens to all of us. You know that feeling. The feeling of indecision as you stand in your closet; sometimes, it even borders on paralysis. You are completely uninspired. When I’m feeling uninspired, I have 2 outfit combinations that never let me down and keep me moving out the door in the morning.
Jeans + Statement Blouse + Simple heel
Everyone has several pair of jeans in their closet. So, depending on where you’re headed, you can decide how slouchy/ripped or tailored they need to be. Next, grab a statement blouse that does inspire you. The one that always gets compliments when you wear it. This Ganni blouse with the “big sleeve energy” is a perfect example of the statement blouse. The color and big puffy sleeve draw compliments every time. If you don’t have anything like that in your closet, you need to put that at the top of your list. Now just add a simple strappy sandal of simple pump. Done!
I’ve rounded up some of the best statement blouses out there that are making their way onto my must-have list; ready to be deployed in an instant against any uninspiring moments.
White Tee + Jeans + Statement Heels
This combination will never go out of favor because everyone has a white tee and jeans in their closet. If you don’t have a favorite white tee, I wrote on several of the best options out there in this post. Now your only decision is which pair of statement heels to throw on to make your jeans and tee combination all your own.
One thing about statement heels, they are going to cost you. They just will. So, if you don’t have a pair that makes your heart beat just a little faster when you see them in your closet, then start saving your money. You will want at least one pair in your wardrobe. It’s amazing how powerful a great shoe can make you feel.
Pre-owned websites are a great way to find that statement shoe of your dreams. The RealReal has an amazing selection of previously owned designer items, that are usually just slightly worn, and for a fraction of the original retail price.
Here’s a roundup of some of the best out there right now.
