Happy New Year! I thought I would start 2017 off by choosing some of my fave go to outfits and transitioning them into the only 5 outfits you will need to pull off effortless style this January. Out with the old and in with the new!
1. THE ERRAND OUTFIT
Athleisure is still such a popular style, and really how can you not love it?? So comfy and cute, I’ll be channeling the Athleisure queen herself, Gigi Hadid, all month long while I try to shake the holidaze from my mornings.
Tip: Go Athleisure 2.0 and pair a bomber jacket with funky black leggings or some fresh sneakers.
2. THE LAYERS OF CHIC OUTFIT
When it gets chilly I love to keep warm without compromising on style by layering long and short styles with a skinny pant and boots. Or go with a flowy dress and replace pants with thigh highs so you keep your stems out of the cold!
Tip: Don’t get weighed down with layers. Keeping lines clean below the waist and picking light colors will keep you from looking frumpy.
3. THE MEN’S WEAR OUTFIT
If your New Year’s resolution is to avoid painful heels and actually make it to work on time (just me?) then take some notes from the boys! Men’s wear is easier than ever this winter with an abundance of sleek ankle boots and silky textures. Snag a few staples and mix and match them throughout the week.
Tip: Throw some bright and feminine socks on to peek through the gap between your boots and pants, simple but will make your #workootd pop!
4. THE CANADIAN TUXEDO OUTFIT
Denim on denim is effortless cool girl style when correctly executed. One part good fits and another part the right wash of denim, put your “good” jeans on top and stock up on some vintage pieces to add a flare of authenticity.
Tip: Break up lines with some mixed texture pieces, like flannel + denim jackets or a patterned neckerchief.
5. THE COOL GIRL OUTFIT
Fake it till you make it with (p)leather, studs, and monochromatic colors. Invest in a good pair of black cigarette pants for dressing it up or ankle length distressed jeans for weekends. Pair with messy hair and silver accessories for a transcendent cool factor.
Tip: Oversized aviators and an on-trend backpack are perfect for taking this outfit to the city.
Which outfit is your favorite for January?? Is there a trend you’re most excited to try?
