I Thought I Had No Clothes, But I Own Everything I Need for These 9 Summer Looks

·3-min read

I know firsthand that there's nothing more annoying than being challenged after saying (or yelling) "I have nothing to wear," but I'm sorry—I must tell you that I'm here today to do just that. But the truth is we all have countless cute pieces in our wardrobes or, at the very least, enough basics to put together outfit after outfit. What I realised can be lacking at times is the creativity or inspiration to do so.

With that in mind, I went looking—on Instagram, of course—for outfit ideas that I knew could be replicated with clothes I already own, and honestly, it was pretty easy. After finding a plethora of looks, I narrowed down my nine favourites to share with you here today because, as always, I've got your back. To see which made the cut and, of course, shop them if you so please—because, after all, this is Who What Wear—just keep scrolling.

1. Button-Down + Tank + Jeans
