The outfit-making trick that always works!

When I was in the dressing room at Nordstrom helping some of my favorite people, I took A LOT of time to carefully curate outfits, and make sure they were perfectly put together before showing them to my clients. Most of the time, we took many photos, because the selected pieces were always ones that made many outfit combos. Clients would always ask me: when investing in jackets or blazers, what do I wear with them? Over the years, I discovered the outfit-making trick that always works: just match your top and bottom! For example, wearing white/white, écru/écru, black/black, or camel/camel is a great starting point before layering with different coats, jackets and blazers.

Last week, I shared a stylist tip while in my closet: how many jacket options go with a white/white combo? You can view the video here, and shop the boards I made here and here. Today’s post is about stylish, pre-fall outfits that all work around these combinations. Since jackets and blazers are the finishing piece of almost every outfit, I’m including some brand new picks I’ve just discovered. I hope you get a little outfit inspo for your own wardrobes and starting prepping for the best fall looks ever!

P.S. I’m working on another YouTube video which will be published this week (pre-filmed before vacation), and in case you’d like to see the other videos, click here. And, if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish, then subscribe to my blog and never miss a post!
