But really, I don’t think I’ll ever fully be done with formulas! My whole perspective on having outfits planned is that they are great for when you don’t have time to plan, but otherwise, I think it’s great to be experimental and try different things based on what you are feeling and not what you know for sure works.
Do you feel this?
I think everything should be approached in balance. And balance to me is less about being in the middle of the road with things and more about living in a way that creates peace and flow for your life personally. In other words, balance looks different for everyone… something I am learning for myself.
Sooo with that in mind let’s jump on in and take a look at this last outfit of my 5 Spring Outfit Formulas!
Outfit Formula 5:
Fitted Tank + Dad Jean
To start let’s just acknowledge the importance of having some very basic options in our wardrobes – simple tee’s and tanks, comfortable jeans, etc.
The truth is that most of us need comfortable options that we aren’t “thinking” about for the average days. I love a killer inventive outfit, but I also love those basics that look a step up from just yoga pants or sweats. Ya with me?
This outfit is just that perfect blend of basic but elevated for me. And I took it up a notch with my fav overside denim jacket and some snake skin slides.
The simplified version of this outfit can be broken down to this:
Fitted item + Loose item
These jeans specifically are 100% cotton, but they start to loosen right below the bum so they are very comfortable to sit in despite having no stretch (just a suggestion size down). But in general, I have found the combo of 98% to 2% to be the sweet spot in denim that is not a skinny jean.
Here are a couple of other pant options with some stretch if you are looking for a straight leg or dad jean option that has a little more give:
Everlane Cigarette Jean | Madewell Perfect Vintage Jean

Denim Jacket (old) | Similar here | Similar here (made responsibly)
Tell me what do you think of Outfit Formulas? And what will be some of your go-to outfits for the rest of this Spring?
How fun is this! I’m with you. I need more planned outfits for “ready go” but I also enjoy putting together crazy and discovering something new! Clearly you’re having a blast!
Thank you!! Yes, I love easy going outfits that I know look good but require little thinking when I’m in a more whimsical mood but still want to look good. You should plan a try on evening and pair a couple of outfits together for those times!
