I used to think that there was nothing more embarrassing than being singled out as an "outfit repeater"...
... but now I've come to appreciate having a "go-to" outfit which I love to re-wear. There are so many benefits to having a favorite clothing combo which can be worn time and time again. Here are a few reasons as to why having a go-to outfit is actually a good thing.
reason no. 1: it saves time
There have definitely been days when I'm running late and have 30 seconds to decide what I'm going to wear. Having a favorite outfit really saves me in instances like this- it lets me leave the house looking stylish and saves me time I would have wasted trying on different outfits.
reason no. 2: you feel confident wearing it
It's your favorite outfit for a reason- it makes you feel confident, sexy, pretty, basically any positive adjective you can think of. There's nothing wrong with re-wearing something if it makes you feel like your best self. Having a go-to outfit also comes in handy when you're going to the first day of class, a first date, etc. and need that extra boost of confidence.
REASON No. 3: you can save $
If you're a shopaholic, this may not be entirely true for you, but re-wearing an outfit means you don't have to constantly go out and buy new clothes. Having those few basic pieces that you like to wear can cut down on your clothing purchases since you're content with your wardrobe.
REASON no. 4: it embodies your personal style
Basically all celebrities have a signature look- whether it's Kate Middleton with her nude L.K.Bennett heels or Kris Jenner with her giant black sunglasses. A go-to outfit is a single look that embodies your entire sense of style and taste. It's very cool to be able to show the world your sense of style in just one outfit, which in my opinion makes owning a go-to outfit something special instead of something to be embarrassed about.
The start of a new calendar year marks the time when people write down their resolutions, plan out goals, and create vision boards for the new year. While I do make typical goals such as "work out more" or "eat healthy" just like all the other 7.53 billion people in the world, I also like to design a fashion vision board for the year that lies ahead.
While looks and what you wear aren't everything, I believe there's no better way to kick off a new year than with a good outfit! A lot of my confidence lies in my ability to express myself through fashion, so I've decided to share my 2019 fashion vision board with all of you to hopefully spark your interest and give you some style inspiration for the new year.
Life is too short to waste time wearing subpar outfits, so I encourage each and every one of you to design your own style inspo board for 2019!
