I get messages all the time asking advice on how to put together an outfit. Often we all get stuck in a style rut and it’s hard to piece together outfits when you’re bored with your wardrobe.
A few months ago my cute friend Keara from Kearalei (also Modest Style) did a style remix and each day was a different theme. For example one day was wear animal print. It was a really fun and cute style challenge and it really helped me change up my style. It got my wheels turning for an outfit bucket list.
What is an outfit bucket list
An outfit bucket list are outfits you want to put together and wear. So I am going to take you from step 1 to the final steps of completing an outfit. I will share the foundation of an outfit (the bucket list), then I will show you a shoppable collage, and then how to pull items from your own closet if you can’t shop from the collage. So these are outfits for January. I wanted to get this up early so you can shop for the items you want or find similar items in your closet.
Alternatives (Switch items out)
Now there are alternatives to keep in mind. If you work clearly the casual weekly outfits won’t work. I kept you in mind as well. If you have to dress up for work, switch out the jeans or leggings for trousers. Switch out the cardigans or coats with a blazer, and if you can’t wear boots or booties to work, switch them out for heels or flats. I wanted to make these pieces interchangeable and reuse items incase you are shopping these pieces because we want to use our clothes to the best of the potential. We want to get our monies worth right?
Also Sunday’s I did a dressed up style, if you don’t do church or like to dress up switch out the skirt or dress for your favorite jean and sweater combo. If the dress is paired with a cardigan instead of a sweater grab a long sleeve shirt or blouse and throw the cardigan on over it.
Let’s Get Started (It’s going to be long)
So the list is the foundation. It can help you build any outfit. I love to pattern mix so when you see patterned items you can keep it to one item or you can pattern mix with two.
Let’s Go Shopping
Now these are all the items I will be using for the list. You can shop them here or on the collage. There are a lot of items and I will try to categorize them by item so it will be easier to find the items you want. I tried to keep things on budget and find alternatives if something was more expensive. Some of these are on sale at the time of this post so if you are shopping later on they may not be on sale anymore but you can always search for alternatives. Some of my favorite budget friendly alternatives are Old Navy, Nordstrom Rack, Target, My Sisters Closet Boutique, Jane, and Amazon.
Ok now we are onto the daily outfits I will try to keep them by week so this post isn’t 5 miles long. You can click on the items you like and shop from there. I tried to do a variety of pricey items vs budget items. If the pricey item is linked in the photo you can find a budget friendly option in the categories above. And if the budget friendly item is linked you can find the more expensive pieces in the categories above as well.
Now if you can’t shop and wish to shop your closet this is how you implement the foundation list.
Say the foundation is Cardigan+Top+Jeans+Hat+Booties=
If you work in an office setting you can for sure replace pieces with workwear. Replace jeans with black plants or trousers, add a blazer instead of a casual cardigan, and add heels if you can’t wear booties.
I hope this helps you not only plan out your outfits and look fabulous but help you shop for outfits you can apply to these rules. Reuse what you have, shop your closet and do invest in your closet when possible.
