Sleek leather booties with casual striped dresses, painted-red lipstick, and subdued, wind-swept tresses... These are a few of our favorite things in some of Instagram's best #OOTDs.
While there's no formula to perfecting an everyday look, there are key pieces that always work. Turtlenecks have stuck with us through and through, from pairing form-fitted ones with a midi-skirt to wearing a looser variety on top of oversized pants. Crossbody handbags have also proven to be a practical and timeless, and culottes and duster coats dominated 2014 — most notably championed by the Kardashians.
Whether all these elements come together in a single outfit or are selected carefully to fit a larger ensemble, our favorite bloggers give serious thought to individual pieces before they start thinking about what filter to use. In the end, that's what sets their looks apart.
