What to wear : how I plan my outfits easily?

Thinking about what you will wear for the day might sometimes be a lot of struggles. In this blog post, I'd like to show you my way of getting ready and choosing an outfit that I will like and feel comfortable in.

PLANNING

I'm always repeating it : plan your outfits at least the night before. In the morning we are still sleepy and have time constraint, that's why it's not the best moment to choose what you will wear. Plus, if you're not happy with your outfit : your mood is ruined for the day. Am I right?
What I personnally do and it might sound quite excessive for some people but I plan my outfits one week ahead. I take a moment during the weekend where I'm feeling inspired to choose what I will wear during the week. I like to take pictures of my planned outfits so I know exactly what I paired with what.

WEATHER

It's always much more comfortable to be dressed according to the weather. That's why I always check the weather so I have a guide of what type of outfit I should wear. Plus it's a great way to narrow down your options.

INSPIRATION

Of course, inspiration is a great help when it comes to choosing your outfit. I already did a full blog post here if you'd like to read it. What works for me is to look regularly at my Pinterest feed and boards. I also enjoy thinking about what outfit will look great when I'm in bed.

START SIMPLE

To help you find the perfect combination, I choose one piece and then build my whole outfit around it. For example, if you have a new T-shirt : try to style it with what's already in your closet. Or sometimes you can challenge yourself. For spring, I'm trying to bring as much colour as I can in my outfits. As you can see, it's pretty much a big fail for me, but I won't give up!

  1. You're right. It's better to plan outfits the night before. First to be dressed according to the weather (it's no very funny to wear flip flop when it rains). Then to sleep 10 minutes longer ;)

  6. Great post & tips. I also plan a day in advanced but since I live somewhere that's hot almost all of the time, I stopped checking the weather and just bring something extra to keep me warm at night when it cools down. :) Planning a day in advanced is so much quicker when you have to work the next morning!

    1. You're lucky to have warm weather almost everyday! Isn't it frustrating not to have the four different seasons?

      Planning is definitely a time saver!
