I know firsthand that there’s nothing more annoying than being challenged after saying (or yelling), “I have nothing to wear,” but I’m sorry—I must tell you that I’m here today to do just that. Despite the fact that I’m constantly shopping, I too often feel like I have no clothes, and quite frankly, it makes no sense. I have countless cute pieces in my closet, and at the very least, I have enough basics to put together summer outfit after summer outfit. What I lack at times, I realized, is the creativity or inspiration to do so.
With that in mind, I went looking—on Instagram, of course—for outfit ideas that I knew could be replicated with clothes I already own, and honestly, it was pretty easy. After finding a plethora of looks, I narrowed down my nine favorites to share with you here today because, as always, I’ve got your back. To see which made the cut and, of course, shop them if you so please—because, after all, this is Who What Wear—just keep scrolling.
And don’t even worry about trying to match all your colors perfectly. In fact, this look proves that it might even work better when you don’t.
Apparently, the simple addition of a silk scarf around your head makes your white-dress outfit 10 times chicer.
Tank? Check. Slip skirt? Check. Outfit? Check.
And just like that, you’re transported to a tropical vacation.
Here is your reminder that matching activewear sets already always look put-together, but a button-down will make your look even better.
This look can take you anywhere, from work to dinner to brunch.
Make any old dress feel completely new by layering a cute cardigan over it.
Yes, it is that simple.
Pro tip: Opt for a light linen blazer to serve as the perfect topper for summer nights.
