So, if you haven’t jumped on the Pinterest train yet… well, that’s just weird. But if you, like so many girls including myself, look to Pinterest for a bit of outfit inspo and find yourself overwhelmed… fear not!
I think when looking at Pinterest for outfit planning you really have to keep a wide perspective. If you get too carried away you’ll want to buy the exact piece of every outfit you like. And we all know that is jusy not practical. *BUT* it is possible to recreate outfits with the basics you already have in your closet!
I’m doing that today with three very different outfits.
The 2 most important things you need to keep in mind when recreating your outfit are shape and cut.
SHAPE: What shape does the sillouhette create?
CUT: What is the cut of each piece the model is wearing?
The 1 thing you should not worry about so much is COLOR. Just because I don’t have a red blazer doesn’t mean I can’t recreate this look in my own way. Again, keep an open mind…
SHAPE: long and lean
CUT: the jeans are a loose, boyfreind cut, and the blazer is fitted.
The Jist: Jeans with a Blazer
My Recreation of Look #1:
I switched up the color scheme of this outfit, but I kept the same basic idea. Distressed white jeans instead of blue jeans, and a plaid blazer with a navy, embellished tee underneath.
SHAPE: Straight up and down
CUT: oversized sweater with loose dress pants
The Jist: An oversized sweater with dress pants
My Recreation of Look #2:
I layered a simple white bouse under an oversized oatmeal colored sweater and paired them with navy dress pants and boots. I added a long necklace to elongate my neckline.
CUT: A-line skirt and tailored blouse
The Jist: A-line skirt and silky blouse.
My Recreation of Look #3:
I paired two jewel tones together and paired my look with sweater tights and boots instead of heels because it was SNOWING. I completed my look with some jewelry and a bold lip color.
And there you have it! 3 looks- recreated in different ways!
How do you recreate Pinterest looks with your existing wardrobe?
