5 Fashion-Girl Outfit Ruts & How To Break Out Of Them

Outfit fatigue tends to strike when we least expect it. One day, we're confidently strutting to work in the "in-again" flares we just resurrected from the depths of our closet, and the next, we can't see past our seemingly uninspiring selection of work trousers and button-ups. There's no denying that the best outfits start with a vision, but on those mornings when the lightbulb never flickers, we end up in a style rut, clinging to our same ol' sartorial inclinations. Good news is, there's a way to snap out of it without dropping major dinero.
To prove it, we tapped five fashion-savvy R29ers whose style uniforms, albeit already on-trend, needed a break from their endless rotation. With some new kicks from Keds and a few minor switches, we reimagined their everyday looks to make them feel new without an expensive add-to-cart marathon. Click ahead to see the upgrades. And, if you feel so inspired, Instagram a photo of your revamped getup with the hashtag #StyleDareContest (winners receive an epic trip to NYC — just sayin'). 
From simple shoe swaps to color pops, an all-new look is just a click away.
