Putting an Outfit Together


Being 'stylish' or 'classy' doesn't have to be difficult.  Look at the above formula.  You start with a basic piece (I usually start with an interest piece), then add the other three pieces in.  Right there you have a complete outfit.  This formula an work for any type of outfit: casual, work, dressy, church, etc.  

A couple outfit examples:

Interest Piece: Plaid shirt
Basic Piece: Jean Skirt
Completer Piece: Tank Top
Accessories: Bracelet and Chucks

Interest Piece: Tank Top
Basic Piece: Skirt
Completer Piece: Jean Jacket
Accessories: Shoes, Purse, Earrings

Interest Piece: Dress
Completer Piece: Jacket
Accessories: Shoes, Necklace, Purse

Interest Piece: Maxi Dress
Basic Piece: Cardigan
Completer Piece: Belt
Accessories: Scarf, Shoes, Purse

Interest Piece: Cardigan
Basic Piece: Jean Skirt
Completer Piece: Tank Top
Accessories: Purse, TOMS

All outfits via Polyvore

Use this formula to change up your wardrobe.  Mix and match the clothes you normally wear together with ones you normally wouldn't wear together.  


  1. This is very helpful! Thank you for sharing the formula...I think I've seen it before, but I just never connected it with the polyvore outfit idea before. This could work for me. ;) I have trouble doing anything other than matchy-matchy with my clothes.


  2. I love this! And the outfit examples you included are really cute. Great post!

  3. I love the formula! It's an unwritten law that I use all the time!
    P.S. Cute outfit combos!
