Channeling your mood is an essential part of getting dressed every day — or at least it should be! Who wants to feel constricted in a power suit and heels when you're feeling playful and energetic? Or how about when you're wearing leggings and an oversize sweatshirt, but you're feeling flirty and sassy? Let's face it: the day just feels off when you're not vibing with your outfit. After all, our clothes are supposed to be a representation of our personality and mindset — whatever it may be at that particular time.
So instead of planning an Outfit of the Day, think of the OOTD acronym as your Outlook of the Day. Feeling adventurous? Throw on some animal print or neon. In a feminine frame of mind? Break out that sundress! Below, find seven mood-based looks, one for each day of the week, that will inspire you to dress in the moment. No matter your style vibe of the day, we have an ensemble that will help you look your best for any occasion; because when you look amazing, you feel amazing, and that alone can set a positive tone for the 24 hours that follow. Here's to many good-outfit days ahead!
A classic look is timeless and versatile. No matter where you're headed, these elevated basics can help get you there. This shirtdress is essentially a blank canvas and can be layered or accessorized in infinite ways. For a utilitarian-chic vibe, the printed scarf and shiny loafers add loads of polish and class.
Fresh, flirty, and fun, a feminine look is all about sweet details and pretty prints. This floral dress is virtually seasonless, as it can be worn now with a tee underneath, later with a jacket and tights, and all by itself come Spring. Add a pop of color with a bright cardigan and tie around your waist for definition and major street style points.
Think of leopard as your new neutral; it pairs well with any color or print and looks fantastic on everyone. And not only is head-to-toe animal print having a moment, but it's also the perfect way to stand out when you're feeling bold or courageous. On less-risky days, pair just one leopard piece with all black for a toned-down but still trendy look.
Taking crisp workwear to the next level, pair a plaid blazer with tailored pants and heels for a business-chic look that'll ensure you own any boardroom. While keeping your separates streamlined, liven things up with your accessories and choose a structured bag in a rich jewel tone along with elegant jewelry that pops.
Put a modern spin on a retro vibe by rocking hoops along with flared pants and bold booties. This red pair is surprisingly versatile and will look equally amazing when worn with jeans or a midi skirt. Berets are also gaining major traction again this season, so stock up now and get use out of yours all through Winter.
Rather than opting for your go-to leggings and sneaker combo when you're feeling sporty, switch it up with fitted joggers and slides. Just as comfortable but infinitely more stylish, this look works on the weekend and in the office. And instead of throwing on an old t-shirt under your hoodie, try a button-down for a unique spin on casual cool.
No color is sunnier than yellow, and when you're feeling cheerful, a lemon-hued dress is sure to keep your spirits high. Combine with fresh footwear in white, and top off with a contrasting sweater on chilly nights. To let your dress truly shine, team with a neutral bag but tie a printed scarf around it for a sweet burst of unexpected color.
