Because you may fall for something every now and again, then realise you aren’t so sure how to wear it.
Google and Pinterest are all about the tips and ideas on how to style your wardrobe pieces together in a way that you may not yet have thought of, or had time to stand in front of your closet to figure out. Sometimes I stare at my wardrobe in the hopes that something will come to me only to pull out some terrible options, try them on and recognize that I must be half asleep. Over-complicating the process I can seriously waste my time. I loved this pink trench from the second I spotted it at an event during fashion week and was very lucky to be given a voucher code to order it the next day in my size.
Once home, then I tried it on with about three different outfits which all looked boring or terrible before turning to Pinterest and typing in ‘pink trench’. Of course, so many images came up of the most basic street style that I realized I was going to pair it with the most basic things ever- jeans, a cami and white sneakers and in fact that was enough. No need for a dress, heels or anything too fancy.
As usual, keeping it simple is the easy answer.
