With the amount of clothes I have in my closet, you’d think “I have nothing to wear,” would never come out of my mouth. And yet so many days I say exactly that. But, I’ve finally found a solution! There is one foolproof outfit you can use all year for those times when you have “nothing” to wear!

Black Denim

First, start with a pair of quality black jeans. Jeans that will last you years. Jeans that you feel amazing in. I recently snagged these jeans and can’t stop wearing them! Choosing classic styles like a slim or straight leg fit will ensure that your jeans never go out of style. We want to be able to wear these for every season!

Black Top

The next part of the outfit is a black top. Some people shy away from black on black, but monochrome is always in style! And, it always makes your outfit look a little bit more elevated. Obviously, it’s winter, so a black sweater was my top of choice. I love an oversized sweater and add in a turtleneck? It ticks all the boxes!

Of course, the time of year will determine your top. Maybe you have a cute black shirt to wear in the fall or spring. Switch it up with a black tank or tee in the summer. The possibilities are endless, and chances are you have a black top for every season in your closet.


With black jeans and a black top picked, now is the fun part — accessorizing! I recently saw a black on black outfit with camel booties and knew I had to recreate it. But, plain black booties would have been cute too! And of course, depending on the season you can swap in sandals, flats, heels, etc.

The star of the show for this outfit though is definitely my mint green beret! I picked it up on my birthday and couldn’t wait to style it. It’s definitely not for everyone though, but the accessories are the way to make the outfit totally your own! The options are endless.

Tell me, how are you going to style this foolproof outfit the next time you have nothing to wear? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments below!
