While the current climate is certainly challenging, I’m trying to look on the bright side of things and focus on the positive aspects social distancing and staying home can bring—from tackling the stack of books I’ve been wanting to read to catching up on last year’s Oscar nominated movie list to video chatting with long-distance friends I haven’t seen in a while. These activities have helped me feel happier and calmer while trying to navigate these uncertain waters. Another area I’ve been channeling my nervous energy into is working on projects I’ve had on my to-do list for months that I perceived to never have the time for, like cleaning out my closet.
Now I didn’t want to just clean out my closet in the typical sense of gathering pieces I don’t wear anymore to donate, but I wanted to really take inventory of my wardrobe and utilize this time to create new outfits around pieces I already own. I’ve been selecting one item from my wardrobe that I truly love and using Instagram and Pinterest to inspire outfit ideas around that piece to help me build looks around it with similar items already in my closet. This way once I return to my normal day-to-day routine I’ll have an arsenal of new looks to wear—without adding to my wardrobe or spending any money. It will also help reignite my excitement around some of my most-loved items.
The first piece I started with is my favorite oversize blazer, and since most of us have some style of blazer in their wardrobes I figured it might be helpful to share all the new outfits I saved for you to utilize as well. Of course in these photos there are blazers of all different colors and silhouettes, but they’re a good baseline for an outfit combination that you can sub in alike pieces from your own wardrobe to create something similar. From the dress-and-boots look that feels like a throwback to the ’90s to the updated jeans-and-sneakers combo that feels so current, below are the 17 genius spring blazer outfits I’ll be wearing in the coming months.
