I Thought I Had No Clothes, But I Own Everything I Need for These 9 Easy Looks

I know firsthand that there's nothing more annoying than being challenged after saying (or yelling) "I have nothing to wear," but I'm sorry—I must tell you that I'm here today to do just that. But the truth is we all have countless cute pieces in our wardrobes or, at the very least, enough basics to put together outfit after outfit. What I realised can be lacking at times is the creativity or inspiration to do so.

With that in mind, I went looking—on Instagram, of course—for outfit ideas that I knew could be replicated with clothes I already own, and honestly, it was pretty easy. After finding a plethora of looks, I narrowed down my nine favourites to share with you here today because, as always, I've got your back. To see which made the cut and, of course, shop them if you so please—because, after all, this is Who What Wear—just keep scrolling.

1. Button-Down + Tank + Jeans

Style Notes: And don't even worry about trying to match all your colours perfectly. In fact, this look proves that it might even work better when you don't.

Shop the look:

You'll find that a linen shirt will finish all your summer looks.

Arket is our go-to for great basics. 

2. Silk Scarf + White Dress

Style Notes: Apparently, the simple addition of a silk scarf around your head makes your white-dress outfit 10 times chicer.

This also comes in a great tangerine orange hue. 

3. White Tank + Slip Skirt

Swap trainers for heels to take this from day to night. 

4. Black Dress + Gold Earrings + Sandals

Black dresses as just as handy for summer as their white counterparts; in fact, I'd argue they look even chicer, especially paired with co-ordinating black accessories and gold earrings.

The shirred bodice equates to the perfect fit.

Skirts are the moment this year, and Olivia perfectly demonstrates how to style a full midi in a low-key way; with a cropped knit, tote, and velcro sandals.

Make any old dress feel completely new by layering a cute cardigan over it.
