How To Put Together An Outfit 101 | Basic Style Tips


hello friends welcome back to my channel
if you’re new welcome my name is Christine so today I wanted to do a
different kind of styling video this is kind of a like back to basics how I put
together an outfit I wanted to take you guys behind the scenes and show you guys
how I come up with some of my outfits I have so many pieces of clothing I
constantly go through and purge my closet but they’re just some days where
I feel like I don’t know what to wear it I feel like I’m wearing the same outfits
in the same pieces over and over again whenever I go through rest like that
these are just some tips that I have to kind of put together a really great
outfits maybe utilize some other pieces in your closet that you have forgotten
about so I hope you all will find this video helpful before we go ahead and get
started first make sure you hit the subscribe button if you haven’t already
and the little notification ballot and without further ado let’s go ahead and
get started on my skin actually have no makeup on whatsoever I just felt like my
skin looks so good my updated skincare routine has been so good to me and I
haven’t been going through any breakouts knock on wood so I just felt like just
doing a little bit brow and mascara and kind of leaving my skin as is so I hope
that it was okay anyways enough about the chatting let’s go ahead and get
start with the video so the first thing that I love to do especially when I am
in a creative rut is to go on to Pinterest and here you can see I have a
couple different boards but my favorite two boards for outfits is the street
style in my Fit board so going into my street style board I will usually scroll
through and see any images or outfits that kind of inspire me and I’ll open
the image in a new tab so that way I can just reference it later and it’s just a
lot easier for me to see everything all laid out these are all pins that I
previously have saved to this board if you guys want to follow me on Pinterest
I’ll leave a link to my Pinterest boards down below but I just love kind of
scanning getting a rough idea of like maybe items I have in my closet that are
similar that are outfits that I could put together and then just opening all
of those in a tab so that I can reference them later just going through
my board and kind of thinking about items that maybe I haven’t worn in a
while or a different type of outfit that I have
done yet Pinterest is just a great place for me to go to because it helps me to
draw a lot of inspiration because I feel like a lot of the times when I’m
scrolling through Instagram or looking for certain places for inspiration you
just kind of start seeing the same things over and over again and sometimes
when I find myself wearing the same type of outfit over and over again to
Pinterest is always a great place for me to go to a lot of the outfits that I
have saved I haven’t tried out myself yet so I was like going through and
looking through my boards every once in a while once I’ve got quite a few
outfits I am happy with that I just feel inspired by I will actually send these
images to myself on my phone just so that I have them when I am going through
my closet and putting together outfits these are some of the outfits that I
love that I’m actually gonna be doing similar outfits today to show you guys
another place that I find a lot of inspiration is actually scrolling
through Instagram this is actually my feed if you guys don’t follow me on
Instagram yet baby what is you doing I post very very often on my Instagram and
you’ll often find a lot of outfit info product reviews stuff like that just
more updates and I’m just a lot more active on there as well but going into
my saved posts actually have it organized by different categories so in
here I have like a fit save folder so here a lot of outfits I’ve seen on
Instagram that really inspired me so I will kind of just scroll through and
anything that inspires me I would just screenshot and that way I just have
everything in my phone so that when I’m putting together outfits I can reference
back to so these are the three outfits that I pulled from Instagram that I want
to kind of recreate next what happens is I will kind of just stand and stare at
my closet and kind of imagine some of the pictures that I pulled from
Pinterest and Instagram and try to pull similar items that can kind of create
that outfit maybe even looking through us on my clothes and seeing any pieces I
haven’t worn in a while or if there are any tones I kind of want to go for a lot
of the times if I buy something new like I have a couple blouses hanging to the
right I will kind of just leave it there so that I know to style it just because
a lot of the times I end up wearing the same thing over and over and then while
I’m putting together my outfits I’m still referencing back to my phone and
my laptop to see you know some of the inspo pics
that I pulled it just helps to give me a little bit more direction when I’m
putting together my outfits outside of my room actually have a coat closet type
situation so out here I have a lot of my heavier coats my teddy coats some
thicker wool jackets and stuff like that on the side of my closet I have a lot of
my sweaters and blazers and a lot of like thicker knit items but I remember
it actually had this blouse I thrifted last week I actually posted a vlog on it
that I wanted to kind of style so I thought would be cute if I wore it kind
of cropped or tied once I have a couple outfits set aside I will actually just
try them on and try on a couple shoes I think would go really well
these boots actually thrifted and I got them for $30 which is such a good deal
here is outfit kind of put together I kind of tuck the blouse in these are the
boots that I thrifted I love them I feel like it’s a good
brownie gray taupe color and it goes really well with the colors of the
blouse and since I’m wearing some brown tones I wanted to throw on a brown
shoulder bag so this bag is from Mingo I love it and here you can see all the
proportions just look really really nice these jeans are new ones that I picked
up recently and they’re from a Goldy but they are kind of cropped around the
ankle so really brings a lot of attention to these booties which I love
and because these jeans are high-waisted it just makes my legs look super super
long next I wanted to channel a little bit more of the cool girl vibe street
style situation so these sweats are actually from Brandon I love them I’ve
just been so inspired by the sweat suit look I just love how cozy it all look
this is actually a crewneck that Brandon’s grandma gave me and I I liked
it without fit but I feel like it was missing like a third piece I’m all about
the three piece rule so kind of having like a third piece to make the outfit
look a little bit more elevated so I tried on this coat from adidas that I
had on but I just felt like it just didn’t look right and oftentimes when
I’m putting together outfits it looks a lot better in my head and when I tried
on it just doesn’t look as good so I actually ended up changing into a gray
t-shirt and cropped denim jacket and I just feel like this looks a lot better
since the pants are so baggy I thought it would be kind of nice to kind of
balance that out with a more crop top here I love
outfit super comfortable but you get like the cool girl laid-back labs like
you’re not trying super super hard actually mentioned this outfit in a
winter lookbook video so if you guys haven’t seen it yet some of the outfits
I actually put together are mention in that video so go ahead and check that
out if you guys want to see like the finished result then I kind of wanted to
do like a dress and blazer moment because I actually haven’t done an
outfit like this but I had this oversized t-shirt from princess Polly
that I wanted to style and two Blazers here that I picked up thrifting that I
haven’t worn in a hot minute here I’m holding up the colors and kind of see
what goes really nicely with my outfit and of course I had to try it on to see
how it actually looks I feel like this oversized blazer just looked a little
bit too big and the shoulders were going out a little bit too much this blazer
looks better on top of like hoodies and so I ended up changing into the lighter
gray blazer because this one is a little bit more fitting and I’m going back to
my Pinterest pictures to kind of just make sure that I’m still following along
with the vibe I just love this outfit it is so cool I just feel like an Instagram
baddie you know so I have this black person coy on it I love and I’ve worn so
many different time here it’s just a lot of play with proportion since a dress is
a little bit longer I like that the Blazer is also a little bit longer and
it just makes it look less like I’m wearing PJs out in public next i styled
this blouse actually thrifted is really really oversized to actually just button
one of them and tucked it in to the front and I love the brown tones here
especially when I’m putting together an outfit I like to kind of stick with
similar tones so if I’m wearing Browns I kind of want to keep it within the brown
earthy tone category so I think these beige pants play into the outfit really
nicely and then on top I wanted some type of coat I don’t own a white coat
and I didn’t know if I wanted to wear another brown coat on top of it I just
feel like that it’s a little bit too much so actually throughout this heather
gray coat from Arista this is the Dujardin jacket the colors all played
together really really nicely and I have my little brown bag to kind of pull
everything together so that is all the outfits that I put together and a lot of
the times I just pull a lot of inspo from Pinterest and Instagram also
staying within the same color category like if I’m wearing Gray’s
stay within the black white and gray if I’m doing a pop of color I’ll just do
one pop of color and kind of keep everything neutrals just to let
everything really ties together nicely I play those brown tones a lot too just
because I feel like Browns make you look super expensive and it’s a little bit
less basic than wearing like an all-black outfit I hope you all find
this video helpful if you did make sure you give it a big thumbs up let me know
down in the comments if there any other tutorials or outfit styling videos you
guys want me to do and I will see you guys in my next video you were like me wanna be free like I’m
