A New Way to Find Outfit Inspiration + 100s of Outfits to Copy

A New Way to Find Outfit Inspiration + 100s of Outfits to Copy

Greater Than Rubies

Why is it that we have overstuffed closets and we’re constantly saying we have nothing to wear?

We’ve got to reframe our thinking: we’ve got plenty to wear, we’re just not sure how to put it all together to look and feel amazing.

I’ve been practicing remixing my closet for a few years now, and I’ve found the easiest thing is to break it down to a step by step process. Look at the individual pieces first- the basic building blocks of an outfit:

  • tank
  • tee
  • short sleeve blouse
  • long sleeve blouse
  • button up
  • sweater
  • cardigan
  • jacket
  • dress
  • skirt
  • shorts
  • pants

Subbing these into “outfit formulas” helps you create “new” outfits from what you already have in your closet.

This one is super simple: tank + maxi + accessories: a scarf, belt, and sandals.

Because half the battle of an outfit is visualizing, so I’ve created some new pinboards for you by outfit piece:

Using these looks as a starting point, you can come up with TONS of new looks by subbing in pieces that you have. I’m working on some really fun ways to help my e-mail list do that over the next few months. We’d love to have you along! You can always sign up on the righthand side of the page ->.

Happy Wednesday, lovelies!

    These are great! And you have a Princess Kate board – I LOVE her style. I am definitely following that board and might just have to make one for my own drooling!

      Lol! Yes, it’s part of a special project I’ve got in the works coming up. She’s definitely a favorite of mine to gain outfit inspiration from!

    This is awesome. Thanks for putting these together. I wonder, when I click on the dresses link, it sends me to jackets. Could you check on that? Thanks!

      Thanks for the heads up, Cathy! I’ll head over and fix it right now.

    This is such a pretty black maxi on you. Love how you styled it with the leopard scarf! I almost bought this one too, THe belt is a lovely addition on there.
