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.
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.
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.
5. Muscle Tank + Trousers
This look can take you anywhere, from work to dinner to brunch.
6. Full Skirt + Crop Knit
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.
9. Blazer + Bra Top + Jeans
Pro tip: Opt for a light linen blazer to serve as the perfect topper for summer nights.
