I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at the clothes in my closet and just stood there waiting for inspiration to strike me. In my mind, I know I’ve built a wardrobe of pieces I love that are able to be mixed together in new and interesting ways, but at a certain point, I’ll get stuck in a fashion rut where I’m wearing the same outfits over and over again. I don’t mind repeating outfits—and I actually encourage it—but I inevitably get bored of duplicating the same looks too many times. At that point, I’ll pull out my phone and thumb through Instagram and Pinterest and screenshots I’ve taken to give myself a much-needed dose of inspiration. It always amazes me how looking at some fresh outfit ideas allows me to reimagine the pieces I already own and style them in ways I would never have thought of by just standing in my closet. If you similarly get bored of your standby looks, I’ve put together an edit of 96 new outfit ideas to try for yourself. Ahead, they’re broken down by category so you can scroll through to find inspiration for whatever you’re in the mood to wear—whether it’s an outfit with sneakers or heels, something for the office, the perfect wedding guest look, or anything in between. We’ve named Emili Sindlev the master of bright colors because she knows how to pull them off so well. Her outfits are a treasure trove for bold color ideas. Purple and green are a winning combo. Who knew? Same goes for purple and yellow, apparently. Hello, green. Throw on a matching blazer with your pants. Yep, it just always looks good. See, this is clearly a fashion-girl secret. You can always try sticking to one neutral color for pants and accessories, and then adding in a fun pastel shade on top. Or copy one of my new favorite outfits with wide-leg pants and a square-neck top. Make jeans and a T-shirt feel more special by layering a corset on top. For winter, you can keep things both stylish and comfortable by adding a puffer jacket and new-age sneakers. This outfit is less about the jeans and more about the statement top. If you’re not into blue denim, try white. But also consider colored denim like head-to-toe red. This boot height can be tricky to style, but here is the perfect way. Over-the-knee boots for the win. White on white never looked so good. Combat boots and a miniskirt. We’re in. Go futuristic. This is straight-up amazing. So much pastel. MInimal on the top, and fun on the bottom. Add sneakers to a dress you’d normally pair with heels. Wearing sneakers with silk pajama pants is a thing. Why just wear sandals with your summer dresses? High-tops for life. Fashion girls have a thing for Birkenstocks. Keep things comfortable. Add your loafers to a miniskirt outfit. Very into the pointed-toe flats here. Tracksuits, please and thank you. Hey there, sunshine. High-waisted sweatpants for the win. Nailing athleisure in a nutshell. With hoodies these days, bigger is better. Go for something classic yet modern. Or a matching two-piece set. Or just a skirt that’s really pretty. We’re so here for minis. But also ankle-grazing styles. If you want something comfortable, go for kitten heels. Satin track pants go nicely with heels. Same goes for vinyl pants. Strappy sandals are giving this outfit ’90s vibes. Mix unexpected prints and textures. Pile on the hat and jewelry. And when it comes to hats, make them oversize. There’s nothing more retro than a high-waisted bikini. We’re getting Bond-girl vibes. Style a long dress with flip-flops if you’re on board with the trend. Or slingback heels for a more classic look. Minidresses and lace-up heels make for the perfect vacation outfit formula. Throw on a statement jacket. Block heels make this perfect for a city outfit. You can’t beat a comfortable travel outfit with sneakers and athleisure. Travel with coordinating luggage. Arrive in style. Matching pantsuits look both professional and stylish. Try pairing one with ankle boots. Or go for something less traditional like plaid flared pants. Try out a suiting-inspired skirt and top with strappy heels. Instead of pants, wear a belted dress. Another cool option? An ’80s-inspired top and skirt. Pretty floral dresses never fail. Same goes for micro minidresses. The weekend is the perfect time for a cool crop top. You can also try tying a button-down instead of wearing a crop top. A puffer jacket and a leopard-print pant outfit is the unexpected winter look everyone needs. Take the puffer jacket to the next level. Neutrals at their best. Here’s a way to incorporate the cowboy boot trend. Speaking of trends, here’s how to pull off oversize outerwear. Countryside chic. The puff sleeves balance out the fitted skirt. Did someone say vacation? A boat outfit that doesn’t involve a swimsuit. Can’t beat this. Show up in something colorful. Or a fun print. Go for a floor-sweeping dress. This is definitely an outfit I’ll be repeating. Bike shorts never looked so good. Sorbet perfection. Red, red, and more red. Now this is how to pull off neutrals. Same here. Making a case for lime green. If you’re really into blue denim. Nouveau milkmaid tops are still going strong. Puff sleeves aren’t quitting anytime soon either. Add some fun color. Add a polka-dot top to high-waisted trousers. Here’s how to wear two of fall’s big trends—leopard and tartan—at the same time. Top off neutrals with some color. With prints, go big or go home. This is how to wear black, but make it interesting.
