I’ve started investing more time into planning my outfits for the week come Sunday night. Given that a lot of my time is spent working in very casual clothes, the Sunday night ritual is relatively enjoyable. Sometimes I break tradition when inspiration randomly strikes on a Tuesday night, hanging outfits – accessories et al – in a designated pre-planned outfit section of my wardrobe. Other times I open my wardrobe and just stare like I’m an alien who has never even encountered an outfit let alone planned one. It’s those days in particular that I turn to social media for inspiration.
There are a few Instagram influencers that I keep on heavy rotation depending on the kind of look I’m going for – edgy, sophisticated or something more casual – but for the most part my saved outfit posts pose as my sartorial saviour.
There’s something about the sudden drop in temperature that crushes a lot of our styling creativity. The chill in the air and increased amounts of rainfall cause us to stick closely to the same jumpers, jeans and boots combination we know will keep us warm despite the fact that our wardrobes are bursting with clothes desperate to be worn.
