A Guide to Buying Your First ’I'm a Grown-Up’ Outfit

Yes, we know that putting together a ‘grown-up’ outfit often seems like a truly daunting task – especially if you aren’t really experienced when it comes to fashion, but guess what? It’s definitely a mission possible, so don’t wait any longer and keep on reading. Here’s a useful guide to buying your first ‘I’m a grown-up’ outfit, so check it out and nail this task like a true fashionista!

Always put your comfort first…

Even though it often doesn’t seem so, being a grown-up means putting yourself and your needs in the first place. That’s exactly why you should act accordingly and pick comfy outfits that will help you feel amazing in your own skin. Of course, you should always stay true to your personal style, as it will make you feel secure and confident no matter the occasion. For example, if you’re a fan of the business casual style, you should definitely go for a pair of tailored trousers, a trendy blouse that features some graphic prints, and a pair of comfortable flats that don’t pinch your feet. Trust us when we say that there’s nothing worse than too tight shoes you have to wear all day long, so pick the comfiest pair out there and you won’t make a mistake!

But try to stay as elegant as possible, too

On the other hand, the fact is that elegance will never go out of style, which is exactly why your grown-up outfits should be as elegant as possible. Needless to say, a neutral color palette featuring beige, grey, black, and all shades of brown is more than welcome here, so let it be your starting point. As for the clothes, we must say that a tailored blazer and a matching pair of trousers are an absolute must, as well as a quality monochromatic button-down. The good news is that trendy yet affordable womens clothing is on the rise these days, which means that you’ll be able to get top-notch pieces at really amazing prices. All you have to do is to pick items that perfectly correspond to your personal style and voila – your casual yet elegant combos are all done!

Stick to the ‘less is more’ rule

We can all agree that experimenting with different styles, prints, colors, and patterns seems really exciting, but you know what? You should definitely avoid that when picking your grown-up outfits and stick to the ‘less is more’ rule instead. So, the first thing to do is to buy your basics – the pieces that can be combined with each other and worn on multiple occasions. Black and white T-shirts, a pair of skinny jeans, a tailored blazer, a leather jacket, a pair of pointed shoes, and a quality trench coat are just some of the basics that are true wardrobe staples at the same time, so make sure to get these in the first place. When that’s done, you can continue and pick your accessories. Just keep it simple and you won’t regret it!

Pick a few menswear-inspired pieces as well

In case you didn’t know, mixing menswear and womenswear has been a huge hit among the fashion designers these days, which is exactly why you should incorporate a few menswear-inspired pieces into your new outfits. Of course, a flawlessly tailored suit is the most obvious choice – especially when we’re talking about a checkered print. This is a truly timeless piece that will never go out of style, which is why you need it in your wardrobe. However, if that’s too much for your personal taste, you can always get one statement piece featuring the same print, such as a cozy coat or a quality scarf. Besides these, you can also get a trendy puffer jacket, a cool pair of white sneakers, and a chunky men’s watch. These will make a huge difference and take your outfits to a whole new level – it’s a promise!

As you can see, buying your first ‘I’m a grown-up’ outfit doesn’t have to be as tricky as you probably thought. All you have to do is to stick to our tips and guidelines, and once that’s done, you’ll successfully master the art of putting together your perfect combos!
