Back for another installment of the #SheTriedIt series – so far I’ve been super focused on easy, everyday outfits for winter that can be pulled together either with items already in your wardrobe, or possible to update with a quick purchase.
So for this look I re-rocked my oversized turtleneck from a few weeks ago and paired it with the ultimate wardrobe staple – jeans. The combination of these two essentials make for a timeless, uncomplicated and most importantly comfortable outfit!
If you wear denim a lot, a sweater and jeans look may feel too basic to actually be fashionable – but there are a few tips and tricks to make this seemingly regular outfit formula feel fresh. For Autumn/Winter, the gold hoop trend is a fun way to accent a sweater and jeans look, and the oversized version of these hoops really serve to give the overall look dimension.
If you’re more into sculptural earrings, a ponytail or bun will look amazing as well. The finishing touch for such a simple look is, of course, your hair and makeup, it’s key to giving a basic everyday look a bit of oomph and since I’m currently all about an everyday makeup vibe rn (how did I do guys!?) I went for a pared down day time version of my celeb-fave look.
If you’ve been looking for a simple outfit that still feels super chic and can take you from the weekends, to a casual dinner with friends, look no further!
