While the world may be our runway, not every day has to be a fashion show. There was once a time when many of us would dress in our favorite outfits just to make a trip to the grocery store. If this is still what makes you happy, work it! However, if you are like many of us, you are overdressing for those around you. Instead, many people are now dressing in ways that make them feel their best, usually in something practical rather than an outfit meant to turn heads.
There is always a new trend or aesthetic to try, leaving us with not only an influx of clothing but also ensembles that are impractical for our lifestyle. In reality, most of us need a simple pair of pants and a T-shirt to get us through the day. TikTok creator Rachel Whitehouse tells Refinery29, "The competition of fast fashion or trends and trying to keep up is exhausting." Instead, she has begun to stick to "simple but effective outfits." These so-called "boring" outfits are on the rise, and we are here for it.

While wearing a bright and bold outfit can be a fun way to show your personality, it is often not practical for an everyday look. Filling your closet with neutrals and basics is the best way to ensure you have plenty of wearable outfit options. Mastering minimalist dressing with these pieces will make creating new and comfortable outfits easy. When thinking of items to add to your wardrobe, ask yourself questions such as "Will this pair well with multiple other items in my wardrobe?" and "Is this appropriate for everyday wear?"
We're reverting to our most boring childhood outfit for the ease it provides -- the classic T-shirt and jeans. Many of us grew up with this look as our go-to due to the practicality of it. It was a breeze to throw on, comfortable to move in, and easy to switch up. These are all the same reasons people are still embracing this look today.
While wearing heels, boots, and flats can be a fun fashion statement, they are not the most comfortable or the most practical. Instead, stick with something effective for everyday use such as sneakers. This way, you will be focused on what a great day you're having rather than how sore your feet are.
While most of us don't like to admit it, we live in athleisure at home. Why not wear it out of the house? Comfort should come before everything else when getting dressed, and if you are simply running errands, wear what is functional and comfortable. Dressing for yourself and not for others will make any experience better.
Boring outfits don't have to be slouchy. You can always switch out your casual bottoms for trousers or throw a blazer on top. While the look might not be runway-ready, it serves its purpose and will ensure you nail business casual dressing. We love a sleek moment featuring a gray blazer draped over a black fitted T-shirt. Even when paired with denim, the outfit still looks put together.
