How-to put together an outfit (quick + easy!)

Here’s a style truth: 
No one really taught you how to do even the simplest parts of style.

Today’s example: putting together an outfit.

This is something you do every day. And each day you probably do it one of two ways:

  1. Totally mindlessly, reaching for the same outfits you always wear
  2. Consciously thinking and trying things on—taking anywhere from 2 minutes to 45 minutes to maybe end up with an outfit you love
