Five Days of Winter Outfit Formulas®

The holiday season is in full swing with Thanksgiving over and Christmas fast approaching. We have so much to think about that sometimes the decision-making process can feel overwhelming, right? That’s why today I’m sharing with you five days of winter Outfit Formulas® from the Outfit Formulas® Winter 2021 Capsule Wardrobe to help minimize your daily decision-making stress.

Sometimes the last thing we want to think about during the day is ‘what am I going to wear?’ It’s easy to stay in sweats and a hoodie all day. But let’s face it, this time of year we’re running all over the place – school concerts, cookie exchanges, holiday parties, gatherings with friends. The sweats outfit option, although comfy, may not be the best option.

Below are five casual Outfit Formulas® that can easily be dressed up or down depending on your occasion. I left all the links to the original items, even the sold-out ones. I know, especially during this time of year, items can be sold out and then come back in stock, or maybe you can find it at your local store. This way if you have your heart on trying to find one of the pieces, you know where to look. If you like what you see and you want more, like a whole month more of days where you don’t have to think about what you wearing then don’t wait, check out the Outfit Formulas® Winter 2021 Capsule Wardrobe today!

Day #1

Plaid Shirt + Black Top + Light Wash Jeans + Black Boots

Shop the look

I love the casual look of formula number one. For this look, I’m wearing pretty much everything from above except for my black turtle neck which is closet shopped, and my jeans which are by 7 For All Mankind that I found at Nordstrom Rack. If you like the frayed hem, this pair is very similar. I also swapped in my rectangle hoops from Alison + Aubrey for the studs.

Day #2

Dark Gray Cardigan + Solid Top 1 + Gray Bottoms + Plaid Shoes

Shop the look

I know what you’re thinking with this second look, sweater on sweater crime, but it’s really not. For the second formula, I paired a cardigan with a solid top that ribbed and fully buttons like a cardigan but feels more like a tee. But you know what? That’s the best part about Outfit Formulas®, you have options! You can use whatever solid top you want! For this look, I’m wearing everything from above except for the belt which I closet shopped.

Day #3

Neutral Cardigan + Cream Top + Printed Bottoms + Taupe Ankle Boots

Shop the look

Plaid is back! Although that’s really not much of a surprise this time of year. However, this is the first time in a long time that I purchased a plaid skirt and I’m loving it way more than I thought. I paired it with a simple cream top and a neutral cardigan. Then for something that was a little outside my comfort zone, I added a felt hat. This hat has turned into one of my favorite pieces and I find myself pairing it up with a lot of my outfits. I’m wearing everything from above except my cardigan which I bought in spring. This cardigan is pretty similar.

Day #4

Black Moto Jacket + Solid Top 2 + Black Bottoms + Leopard Shoes

Shop the look

I have to say I’m pretty obsessed with formula number four. I’m wearing almost everything from above including my favorite leather jacket. This was an investment piece I bought a few years ago and it’s still going strong. I choose a classic silhouette so I would ensure many years of use out of it. My jeans are by Blank NYC which I also found at Nordstrom Rack. This pair of black jeans are pretty similar. I added a solid yellow velvet top for a pop of color and finished off with some leopard boots!

Day #5

Solid Sweater + Off White Bottoms + Taupe Ankle Boots

Shop the look

I’m the kind of girl that thinks white can be worn all year long. That’s why for my last formula, a paired up a cozy sweater in a rich burgundy color, perfect for winter, with some off-white jeans and taupe ankle boots. And yes, the hat is back. I love the way this outfit turned out. I’m wearing everything from above but if you don’t want to invest in off-white jeans this look will work perfectly with white ones too.
