I get truly excited when I receive an email from one of my favorite clothing stores with a subject such as "Outfits We Love." It is interesting and inspiring to see how trends are being interpreted. Of course, I don't always see eye-to-eye with their design choices, but when I see an outfit that clicks with my personality, I can't wait to dig through my closet and try to recreate it.
In this post, I have collected a handful of outfits that are fun and fresh. The brand name is below each photo and clicking on a photo will bring you to a list of outfit components.
A great way to make your casual wear feel more elevated is with a great blazer. This seems to be the season of the blazer, especially the colored blazer, which means that it is easier than ever to find one in a color and fit that you feel comfortable in. The outfit below is inside out of what most people would do; instead of having a bright blue top layered underneath a navy jacket, the color is brought to the foreground. I love that there are a couple blue bracelets to tie the whole ensemble together.
The stripes are much less intimidating in this outfit by the Gap. By choosing a multicolored stripe, the doors are flung wide open to be bold and creative with the accessories. I think this is a great example of why a colored bag and a colored flat are must haves in every practically stylish closet. This transforms what an outfit for running errands can be. We are all used to throwing on jeans and a tee, but by having all the pieces of your outfit relate, it is fun and easy, while still looking great. And if you aren't a fan of skinny jeans, don't write this outfit off-just sub for your favorite style of denim and you'll be ready for the day.
