Have you scrolled through Instagram, Pinterest or your favorite blogs, and had the thought that there was nothing there for you? I find it helpful to take a bit of inspiration from young women who also have a classic style personality.
I enjoy seeing how other women put classic basics together in a relaxed, updated way. It inspires me to use pieces already in my closet to create a new look that is appropriate for me.
My jeans are ankle length and slim-fitting but not frayed at the hem. My Levi’s jacket isn’t over-sized nor is it heavily distressed. My white top is more fitted than the one in the original photo, allowing me to layer a vest over it for warmth and color. My boots have lower heels, and my bag is more compact than those in the inspiration photo, but the neutral effect is comparable.
Inspiration is helpful, but if you aren’t comfortable in the result, it isn’t a success. It is important to narrow your search to your style personality since you will likely already have similar types of items in your closet. With inspiration, we can use what we own to create new combinations. My looks may be a nod to the originals, but they are never exact duplicates.
My accessories are also minimal, and my sunglasses are over-sized and current. My natural looking lip color is “Little Black Dress” by Beautycounter here.
My navy vest is here (I also purchased the black one). My denim jacket is here. My winter white Everlane jeans are from last year. Similar here. My T is here. My Ralph Lauren bag is from last year. Similar here. The Ralph Lauren boots are from last year. Similar boots here. Referral and affiliate links in my posts may generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc. at no cost to you.
Even if what you purchase is on sale, I always include a gift when you shop with me on my shopping site here. Most of the items listed in “Shop My Closet” are new, (never worn) but they are less than half the retail price.
