Outfit Roundup | Vol. 1


I blogged back in mid-January about how I’m learning to mix-and-match my wardrobe and participating in the Putting Me Together Winter Style Challenge.  I plan to make this a semi-regular series of posts.  Today is a roundup of what I wore the last week of January and the first couple of weeks of February.  The style challenge ended at the end of January, so my outfits in February have been my own formulas and stylings.  I’m still using the Stylebook App to keep track of my clothing inventory and putting outfits together.

This was everything I wore in January 2017, in calendar form.

If you are exploring with fashion and how to mix-and-match clothes, maybe the above could give you some outfit formula inspiration.  Obviously winters in San Diego are pretty mild.  I noticed that my go-to formula usually involves a striped shirt and a blazer or a vest. 

I’ve learned a few things the beginning of January about mixing and matching clothes:

  • It’s important to have different colored bottoms!  (Jeans, pants, skirts)  If you only have blue jeans and neutral pants/skirts, it would be difficult to make outfits look different.
  • “Completer” pieces such as blazers, cardigans, vests, and jackets really make the outfit standout.  And make them different.
  • Accessories such as necklaces, scarfs, and watches also make an outfit unique and completes it.
  • Wearing clothes that fit your body is so important.  If the clothes are too small, they actually make you look bigger than you are.  (For a long time I wore clothes that were my old smaller size and was always dissatisfied with how I looked.  Now I’m wearing a size larger but look much better!)  If the clothes are too big, they make you look sloppy.  I still need to learn more about the different body shapes and how to dress to flatter my body shape.

Hope you are having a good February.  Talk to you at the next Outfit Roundup!
