13 Outfits Stylish Girls Turn to When They Have “Nothing to Wear”



If you find yourself thinking What should I wear today? basically every day, know that you’re not alone. Even the savviest of style mavens can hit that outfit cul-de-sac where everything looks as it did before and nothing feels new or fresh… unless you splash a ton of cash.

So, being the wise, sensible, lovely people we are, we’ve sought out some guidance from our favourite style bloggers and Instagrammers that will kick your existing closet into action. And if all else fails, we’ve cherry-picked some key buys to get these looks on the go already. 

Scroll through the gallery to receive some fast-fashion inspiration for what to wear today…

Jeans + posh jumper + heels: It’s the best work-to-pub thing to wear in the world. We particularly like Ellie’s lilac The Frankie Shop knit and silver sandals version.
Leopard coats are enjoying such a comeback right now, and they pep up your basic jeans/jumper outfits instantly. Emma Rose’s Topshop version is unfortunately sold out—but we’ve got lots of alternatives here.
If you’re ever searching for a fast-track to looking expensive, then it’s got to be an all-cream or all-white outfit. Darja’s knitwear-fest has really inspired us.
For those days where you need to feel unique, a bold suit is one of the most transformative things you can wear. Line’s Mango one is still available—phew.
French girls and Brit girls agree, a big, mannish checked blazer looks very cool with skinny jeans. Alice Catherine has inspired us to revisit this Parisian classic.
Bored of all your daywear? Then start bringing out the party pieces and giving them a make-under, like Eni and her velvet dress/grunge boots formula.
When dresses, jeans, skirts and trousers fail you, try out a pair of dungarees for size. A checked pair will always look smarter than denim—see Mel’s look for reference.
When in doubt rework your favorite dress with a roll-neck underneath and add winter boots. It’s quick fix and comes approved by Milla.
Leather trousers always look best with a cosy knit—it’s the perfect balance of textures and ratio of casual to sassy. Natasha knows it.
Wearing the same printed midi over and over again? Switch things up one day by swapping your go-to black boots for a white pair, like Marie.
A plain ensemble of black trousers and a white T-shirt can look stylish and up-to-date with a simple knotted jumper around your shoulders and well-chosen accessories like Marissa’s here.
Camel coats make most outfits look infinitely chicer, but when combined with jeans, a tee and black sling-backs you really have the ultimate works-every-time combination. Thanks for the reminder, Sylvie.
A dark floral print works 365 days of the year—in winter wear yours like Ume, combining it with a dark denim jacket and black accessories.
