I'm a Stylist—These Are the Easy Outfit Ideas I Plan on Copying in 2022

Ever stood in front of your wardrobe staring blankly at it, waiting for inspiration? Me too, and I’m a stylist. You’d think putting outfits together would always come easily to me since it’s my job, but the truth is we can all feel a little uninspired by our own closets sometimes. That’s why every so often I like to look to the coolest girls I know for some much-needed styling ideas, and compile a handy catalogue of easy looks I love that are super simple to re-create, even when you’re running late in the mornings.

And truly, there’s no better time to do this than at the beginning of the new year when we can all be left a little glum. As we look ahead to spring, it can help us relish in our wardrobes again, rediscovering what we already have and what might be good to invest in. I know how easy it is to let your once-exciting buys blend into the back of your wardrobe after a number of wears. But finding new ways to style them together, or adding in just one fresh new item can breathe life into them and extend their use for at least another year. 

That’s the best part about these 17 looks, is that they probably involve pieces you already have. It’s really all about the subtle styling tricks, or an unexpected pairing that can instantly modernise your look. A lot of them involve clever layering, because there's nothing that elevates simple basics like it. Some show ways to incorporate 2022’s more difficult trends into your wardrobes easily, like maxi lengths or making Y2K trends more wearable for grown-ups. And if you do find there are gaps in your own collection, we’ve added in shopping inspiration below too.
