Oh hey there, 2021. The new year brings a fresh start for us in more ways than one, but naturally, being the style person that I am, I'm focusing on simple and easy ways to update my wardrobe and dress just a little bit better. I've worn my fair share of sweatpants and loungewear over the last year and while I still want to make comfort a priority, I'm feeling more ready than ever to dress up again.

Since I'm certain I'm not the only one who's feeling this way, I figured I'd go ahead and share some of the outfit inspiration that's fueling me to dress my best right now. Thanks to the affordable pieces in our very own Who What Wear line, re-creating the below eight 'fits doesn't have to break any budgets, either. So simply continue on to get your fill out cool outfits and shop the pieces you'll need if you want to re-create them.

The formula: Printed Turtleneck + Wide-Leg Pants + Chunky Boots

Why it works: Allover print creates an eye-catching look and paired with staples like black boots and sunglasses, it couldn't be an easier look to style.

Why it works: Brown tones are having such a moment and I love that this look shows how to incorporate them easily with black pieces.
