InStyle is hands down my favorite fashion magazine. The Instant Style section is the best feature that they run every month. They really out did themselves with this year’s May issue. I can easily recreate most of these outfits with pieces I have in my closet that I would have never thought to put together. Your own takes on these outfits don’t have to be verbatim, but you can at least use them as a stepping stone towards your own interpretation. Plus they give tips and reasoning with each outfit.
Their off-figure styling is phenomenal! The layering, unexpected color combinations, and the mixing of patterns makes each of these outfits amazing. I especially loved this month’s round of Instant Style outfits because they don’t feature heels (except for the last scan, but that’s from a different issue [those pattern wedges from Aldo. I DIED <3]). As much as I want to rock them, and I still do, I just feel much more confident in flats. The outfits are casual but they definitely don’t slack on style & effort.
I feel like my summer inspiration post had to be a two parter just because there are several different trends going on and I didn’t want to post so much excellent content all at once. This way, it gave each trend a chance to be presented. Plus, not everyone digs the nude look from yesterday’s post, and today’s tears are a bit more casual yet more complex than yesterday’s. Today’s inspiration builds off of yesterday’s minimalism and just brings it to another level. The ideas are more clear-cut and accessible in today’s scans and I hope they inspire you a bit more with your summer wardrobe. I hung up the tears in my closet to help me on days where I am just at a loss for an outfit; they just make it so easy for you! Enjoy!
