31 Perfect Looks To Copy This January

Photo via @valentinasiragusa.
I probably said this last year, too, but my 2017 resolution is to put a little more effort into getting dressed every morning. Too easy is it to fall into an outfit routine: mom jeans and a turtleneck all winter, a sweatshirt and sneakers every weekend, we've all been there, done that. But the most ironic part of this, of course, is that I end up having a closet full of clothes I never seem to wear — and that's what really needs to change this year.

To start things off on the right foot, our monthly outfit round-up is a little more boundary-pushing than usual. Ahead, you'll find 31 looks (one for every day in January) that feature creative layering, loud pattern-mixing, and a bunch of other inventive pieces and styling tricks you may have never considered embracing. Let the start of this year be the catalyst you need to start taking more risks with your wardrobe. We swear you won't regret it.

We're all familiar with the T-shirt under a dress move by now, so why not switch things up a bit by layering a cami over your tee instead?

This look can be achieved one of three ways. Start with a simple jeans and a T-shirt foundation, then belt a coat, sweater, or dress on top of it and tug the shoulders to hang ever so slightly.

We're very into wearing two jackets at the same time: This metallic bomber is the perfect piece to sit underneath an oversized teddy or wool coat.

If you're someone who tends to veer towards more monochromatic looks (read: all black, all the time), why not try something a bit more colorful, like a full dusty rose get-up.

We love the play on proportions here: Sans pants, this could easily be worn as a mini dress, but with bottoms, it takes on shape as a longline tunic.
