You know my re-wear game is strong right? If I like something I have absolutely zero shame wearing it all the time. I mean if you look good in something then why wouldn’t you? I know a lot of influencers push the latest and greatest but the true key to creating your style lies in the unique pieces that you’ve kept over the years. When it comes to finding these piece some people want you to calculate cost per wear but I’m going to let you in on my secret to finding quality clothes that you won’t want to stop wearing. First you have to accept a universal truth which is that you and I are flawed, and that’s okay! There are a lot of times especially when it comes to fashion where you convince yourself that you’ll wear something all the time because in an ideal world you probably would. But since we don’t really live in that world how it plays out is that you only end up putting it on once or twice. It happens to the best of us. Instead of trying to do the mental math on how many times you’d have to wear something to justify the cost I urge you to envision all the ways you can wear that piece with what you already own. If you find yourself wondering what you’d wear with something then odds are it’s a waste of money. When you already have outfits in mind and can see the actual places you’ll really wear the piece then it’s something worth spending the money on. To prove my point I’m sharing even more brown jacket outfit ideas with you in case you missed last year’s post where I shared 5 different ways to this NastyGal jacket I bought 2 over years ago. I hope this shows you that when you take a step back to be honest with yourself it will help you chose the right pieces that will work for your style not and years to come.
On those cooler spring days try layering your brown jacket over a knit set. Ribbed sweaters and wide leg pants have definitely been on the rise. The best part is the set can be worn the lounge around the house but the jacket makes the outfit feel chic. No need to get too fancy though, keep the look on the casual side by rocking some sneakers. This is perfect for a cozy chic solo run to sip on a pistachio latte at your fave coffee spot or even taking getting outside for an afternoon walk.
As the temps start to cool I’m swapping out my sleeveless tops for sturdier button ups. This khaki top really amps up the utility look that the high waist green pants already had. To really drive home the safari vibes I decided to pair my fit with a croc print fanny pack and snake print knee high boots. Just like the last look both accessories add personality without taking the look too over the top. If you’re unsure about the pants in knee high boots thing give some chic ankle boots or even sneakers a try. This is definitely a more functional outfit. If you’re bold like me this is something you could easily wear to the office. It’s also perfect for an unexpected outfit to do some local shopping or exploring new museums and art exhibits.
As the temps start to rise ditch the pants and layer your brown jacket over a dress. Personally I love doing this with mini dresses because from the side or back it looks like you’ve got nothing else on. You can go one of two ways with this: either rock the same color head to toe or play around with different colors. You already know me, monochrome is always my top choice. It’s not that I don’t like colors but one color head to toe is much less work to style. I’ve said this before but I’ll repeat myself, if you’re wearing one color head to toe play with textures! This keeps the look from feeling too simple.
