Spring Outfit Formula: White Jeans + Black Tank

Do you love easy outfit formulas?  Of course you do!  Who doesn’t love something that makes life easier and getting dressed a breeze?  Honestly I rely on formulas to get dressed almost every single day. Having one in mind when I walk into my closet makes it super easy to pull pieces together into a quick outfit.

The GYPO Style Challenge is basically built around my favorite outfit formulas.  This past week, participants in the spring challenge got their first full week of outfits to style from the items on the shopping list.

One of the favorites from the week was this easy outfit formula built on the foundation of white jeans and a black tee or tank.  By swapping out the scarf and cardigan, you can create endless possibilities from it.

White Jeans + Black Tank + Bright Cardigan + Print Scarf

Here’s how I pulled together my outfit.


And here are some of the awesome ways that the challengers paired it up.  (They put me to shame, right?)

Last week, the Dallas area style challengers got together for a fun girls’ night out at Watters Creek in Allen, Texas.  We munched on appetizers at Mi Cocina then headed out to take advantage of some great deals on last minute items on the spring challenge shopping list.
