During 2019, my style was solely built on convenience. I relocated from London to Edinburgh, which involved three house moves in the process, and my wardrobe reflected that. Aside from the odd dress or skirt-and-jumper combination, I spent inordinate amounts of my time in jeans. Versatile and reliable they may be, but wearing them day-in, day-put made me feel as if I'd lost my sense of style.
While they're still shaping up to be an integral part of my wardrobe already in 2020, I've decided that, this year, I'll become a bit more experimental with my outfits again.
To equip me with all the inspiration I need, I started archiving some of my favourite outfits I spotted on Instagram. So good were the ensembles I found, I decided to share them with you, too. Below, you'll find an edit of the 42 outfit ideas I intend on copying this spring, and throughout the year, in a bid to up my sartorial standing. How many will you try?

I'll be investing in a statement coat like Nnenna's for the days when jeans and a T-shirt are all I can muster.
Emili's jumper-and-shirt duo might not be a new look to try, but her cropped knit and oversize shirt make it feel fresh.
Two words: pink leather.
