Do you ever have those days when you can’t find anything to wear? I certainly do, more often than I’d like to admit. In those times, my engineering self turns to a formulaic answer. Math really does solve everything, doesn’t it?
So, this is the start of another new series that I shall call Fashion Formula. In it, we will explore those repeatable equations I fall back on in various scenarios when I can’t figure out what to wear. These fail-safe equations help me to look stylish, even when I don’t necessarily feel like putting any time or creative effort into my look.
Let’s start with a weekend casual formula…
I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of low-key weekends at home lately. I love traveling as much as anyone, but lately I’ve needed some time at home to run errands, pay bills, and play catch up on stuff around the house.
On these weekend days, though, I’ve found myself uninspired to put much effort into my look. But yet I still want to resist the strong urge to run around town in yoga pants and workout gear all day. (Please tell me it’s not just me! Ha.)
So, on these days, I’ve fallen back on this fashion formula to create my weekend looks.
White Tee + Statement Necklace + Destroyed Denim + Sandals + Tote Bag + Aviators = Weekend Casual Look
A few tips to make this formula function optimally:
- A cowl neck top works really well for highlighting beautiful statement necklaces
- A statement necklace adds a punch to a look. To keep it casual, choose a statement necklaces with natural elements like this or this.
- Add elements of pattern or texture through your accessories such as your shoes and bag to add visual interest to the look
