Instagram Inspiration: what to wear in January, fashion’s boring month

January 8, 2021

After several months of cold weather, we’re looking forward to spring and don’t feel like buying new winter clothes now. As a result, many don’t know what to wear and end up donning the same looks repeatedly, making January the most boring month for fashion and style. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some outfit ideas and inspiration from Instagram to refresh your winter looks without having to shop in January unless you want to, of course!

Dinner for two

Although we’re still in lockdown, you can host a little two-household-dinner. So, give a second life and refresh your favourite pullover with the help of one or several brooches. But wear the brooch in a modern way for extra oomph. Gather your knitwear on your waist and pin it with the brooch. What a great inspiration from Instagram, with this outfit idea, you can wear your old sweater with a totally new silhouette in January.

Running errands

If you need to run errands but ran out of outfit ideas and don’t know what to wear in January anymore, check our next Instagram inspiration. Open your wardrobe and try new colour combinations. Have fun pairing clothes you already have, the bolder the colours, the better. Try fuchsia and red, orange and pink, or follow the inspiration of Sara Lecci on Instagram and pair green with purple.

Zoom meeting

By now, you’re more than expert on looking good for Zoom meetings, aren’t you? You know you must focus on the upper part of your body. So focus on the collar of your shirts. This January, wear shirts with wide Peter Pan collar; they frame your face nicely and are on-trend. Change your look with different scarves as an option.

Walking the dog

An easy way to refresh your winter outfits is by giving a new silhouette to your trousers. Wear your wide-leg pants tucked in the boots for a contemporary take and comfortable look to go for a walk.

Office outfit

Refresh your sweaters and shirts with an overdose of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. And don’t be afraid to mix & match them. As a matter of fact, the more, the merrier. You can update any office outfit wearing different jewellery pieces that elevate and brighten your winter looks.
