Putting an outfit together lately feels like a chore. Most of us are working from home and the weather hasn’t stopped throwing curve balls.

And did we mention the extra kilos we have put on?

Nothing fits like it did and honestly most of the outfits feel outdated.

Sorting through a busted closet doesn’t sound like much fun either and when you finally manage to pull out a cardigan, it just doesn’t sit right.

To avoid morning hysteria and panic when you need to look well put together for that interview or zoom meeting, we are here to help you recreate awesome outfits.

Here are some ideas on how you can turn your wardrobe basics into something more fun and functional no matter how boring they may look:

 T-shirts pair perfectly with most basic pieces like jeans and skirts (Image: Pinterest)
  • Plain white t-shirt
  • When in doubt think t-shirts and preferably in solid colors that are much easier to style. White tees are super versatile because they can be easily dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.

    For a soiree with your girlfriends, you can jazz it up with a skirt and a pair of stilettos. You can throw in a leather jacket when the chill starts to bite. For a chilled weekend look you can pair it with jeans or shorts and white sneakers to finish off.

    Another great thing about a white tee is your can keep it monochrome or break it with another color or print for something fun.

  • Distressed jeans
  • Lucky you skinny distressed jeans are still a trendy wardrobe staple. For a more formal look you can pair a black or white distressed denim with a flowy top and colored blazer to add some spice. Finish off with a pointed heel or flats.

    If that doesn’t resonate with you, keep it simple and cute. A vest top or crop top would work just fine with a simple pair of sneakers or gladiator sandals.

     Skirts always come to the rescue when you want to look feminine and have nothing in mind (Image: Pinterest)
  • Skirts
  • Long, short, midi, pencil or whatever the design may be, skirts are super versatile and will always come to the rescue when you’re feeling feminine and want something cute to rock.

    This timeless piece can be paired in so many different ways all you need is some little creativity. You can glam it up or keep it simple with a t-shirt or cute blouse.

     We can all agree that every lady needs an LBD in their closet (Image: Pinterest)
  • Little black dress
  • In this day and age, practically everyone has a LBD. You don’t have to wait for date night to put it on. There are so many ways you can wear it during the day no matter what you’re up to.

    For a short tight LBD, you can wear it effortlessly with a pair of sneakers and a denim jacket with folded sleeves. Accessories will take the outfit from average to superb so think along those lines too especially in terms of metallics.

    On the other hand, you can keep it stylish and give it a more formal vibe by pairing it with light black stockings, pointed heels and a work blazer.

  • Matching sets
  • These are a life saver for those lazy days you don’t have the energy to put together something cute and you have to leave the house anyway.

    You can also pair them together or style them separately. A simple jacket, sweater or bottom may give you a totally new outfit when paired right.
