Recently I posted about wanting to get more wear out of my current wardrobe, so I thought maybe I should find some different ways to combine wearing my clothes. Since I had inputted some of my clothing items into the YLF "Finds", I thought it would be fun to see what kind of combinations the "Outfit Generator" would come up with using my own wardrobe.
There were of course some odd results due to the way the system works but there were also plenty of good combinations for me to try as well. Here are a few of the options it gave me:
Photo 1-2: Pink/Navy Option:
Photo 1: The outfit generator's suggestion and photo 2 is me wearing it. Its a nice casual dressy option. I do like pink and navy together but for some reason I usually just wore this polka-dot top with my white jeans.
Photo 3-4: Jeans/Sneaker Option
This is a practical everyday option for grocery shopping etc... Again, I always just wore this slightly oversized striped shirt in summer, usually opened over a tee, it never crossed over seasons.
Photo 5-6: White/Faded Denim Option:
I don't think I'd have put this all together myself, even though it seems an obvious combo now. I do like its casual urban vibe. And that's my urban casual pose too, lol.
Photo 7- 8: Denim/Swoosh Skirt Option
When this option popped up I knew I had to try it. The denim jacket, geometric print top and skirt I think go really well together. I can just change out the footwear for cooler weather.
Photo 9- 10: Ditsy/Black Bootcuts Option
This is definitely something I'm comfortable wearing, totally my persona. I always enjoy a printed base layer to add some interest to an outfit.
Photo: 11-12 Cobalt/Charcoal Coat Option
I wasn't sure how I wanted to wear this newer charcoal cloth coat but I like the pop of cobalt with it and decided to cuffed the jeans just to update the look.
Photo 13- 14: Skirt/ Stompy Boots Option
Well there's no way I would have thought of this but its kinda cute and a bit edgy too but I'm not sure if I'd actually ever wear it IRL but never say never.
I knew I had a fairly cohesive mix and match wardrobe but somehow I had fallen into a habit of wearing my clothes often in the same similar manner and for some reason I lost my creative mojo to see other possibities. It was a fun experiment and I'm actually quite happy to add most of these new combos into my rotation. It got me excited about my own clothes again and since this is my actual wardrobe, it does feel authentic to me.
Do you get stuck wearing your clothes in the same old way? Have you ever tried the outfit generator?
