You probably know by now that I love a good outfit but sometimes I don’t have time to put together new items. Enter the outfit formula! This method means I can mix and match a few similar items in my closet and know I’ll feel great in the final outfit. I have a few different formulas I pull out in different seasons but this one is my favorite for Fall.

I start with a great pair of straight-leg jeans. I love a more relaxed fit, but till tapered at the waist. This helps accentuate my shape and make my legs appear longer. Right now I’m loving the 90s Straight Leg from Abercrombie and the Sky-High Straight Jeans from Old Navy.

To finish off my “base” I add a fitted tank or bodysuit. In this example, I’m wearing a favorite tighter-fitting black tank but I also love this bodysuit.

Last, I add the final touches. For a daytime look, I normally go for a cardigan but I also love the look of a white button-down or flannel on top. For a cooler day, you might layer on a utility jacket, too!

For a casual evening look, I like to add a more structured jacket. I love wearing a moto jacket in a lighter color but a black leather jacket would look great too. You could also do a patterned blazer like this one!

To finish off the look, I add some jewelry and a great pair of shoes. For daytime, I might go for my favorite white sneakers, but for the evening I love a ballet flat or loafer.

So, tell me, what are your favorite outfit formulas? If you try this one out, let me know over on Instagram.
