How to create outfits
In this read, we will discuss three techniques for creating outfits that will save you time and help you look fashionable. Let’s dive into them.
Method 1: The Hero Item
The first technique is called the Hero Item. With this method, you start by selecting a statement garment from your wardrobe that you’re excited to wear. This item is your Hero Item. It could be something trendy, with a bright color, a unique print, or a distinctive fabric.
Once you have your Hero Item, you build your outfit around it by adding basic items. Basics are your personal essentials, such as a top, jeans, a shirt, or a turtleneck. If your Hero Item is a top, pair it with basic bottoms, and vice versa.
Pro Tip: Keep your Hero Items in a separate section of your wardrobe, so you always have them within easy reach. This can also give you inspiration when you lack creativity.
To complete your outfit, choose shoes that complement your Hero Item. You can opt for basic shoes or go for a color or style that matches your Hero Item. If your shoes are the Hero Item, keep the rest of your outfit clean and simple.
The same goes for your handbag. You can match it to your Hero Item for a balanced look.
Method 2: Starting with an Essential
The second technique is similar to the Hero Item method, but we flip the process. Start with an essential item, such as a plain white tee, a classic blazer, or your favorite jeans. Then, add a Hero Item to make your outfit more interesting. This could be something trendy, colorful, or unique.
By using this technique, you’ll step out of your comfort zone and get creative with your essential items.
Method 3: All Essentials
The last method is for those days when you’re short on time or have nothing special on your agenda. Go for the less-is-more approach and create an outfit with all your essential items. For example, a jeans-and-white-tee combo, a black dress with heels, or jeans, a T-shirt, and a blazer.
To add some interest to your outfit, accessorize with a statement piece, shoes, or a handbag that matches your personal style.
Pro Tip: Don’t overthink it! Sometimes, the simplest outfits are the most stylish.
Before you start creating outfits, it’s important to have clarity about your personal style. You can take a style quiz to find your core style,
By using these techniques, you’ll save time in the morning and create stylish outfits with ease. Remember, it’s normal to have days when you don’t like anything in your closet, but with these techniques, you’ll be prepared to tackle those moments.
