5 Effortless Outfits I Fall Back on When I Feel Like I Have Nothing to Wear

We've all been there: While standing in our closets, staring at the full racks, we make the inevitable declaration that we have nothing to wear. Obviously, we all probably have something to wear, but in my case, what I likely mean is that I'm tired of all my clothes or I'm not feeling creative enough to put an outfit together. That's when having an arsenal of go-to effortless outfits comes in handy. 

Below, I highlighted five of the effortless outfits I turn to when the nothing-to-wear feeling hits me. They don't require a lot of pieces, and the items they do require are mostly basics. And the even better news is that all of these outfits can be re-created with Who What Wear Collection's chic pieces.

If it's below 60°, you can guarantee that I'll only wear dresses that start with the words "knit" or "sweater." Just add a cool belt and the boots of your choosing and you're set.
