46 Instagram Outfit Ideas to Kick-Start Your New Year's Wardrobe

This is basically a love letter to you, our gorgeous, stylish readers. As usual, our phones are ringing off the hook with new images you’ve tagged us in on Instagram using the hashtag #WentOutLikeThis, and we thought it was high time to give a little attention back to our superfans. So from now on, each month, we’ll add our favourite snaps you’ve tagged with @whowhatwear.uk to this gallery. Side note: Should you not be following us already, what are you waiting for? Here are our favourite looks from recent weeks—so scroll through to see if you’ve made the cut, and check out some savvy style tips and shopping ideas along the way.


Style Notes: Tonal outfits are still going strong this year, but for 2019, pink is the colour of choice. Rosa styles her Topshop slip skirt to perfection with a baggy bobbly knit and colour-clash shoes.


Style Notes: Linen suits have mileage even in winter. We’ll be looking to Kaja Isdahl for inspiration with her choice of band tee and classic Stan Smith sneakers. 


Style Notes: We’ve seen quite a few influencers donning this Rotate metallic midi dress, but Ellie from Slip Into Style is up there in the who-wore-it-best stakes. Pink socks and gold shoes are an excellent addition. 


Style Notes: Everyone’s doing the double-up coat trick this season, and matching checks is our fave way to work the trend—just look at Lena Farl.


Style Notes: Cult high-street dress alert: We’re singing songs of love to this new-in Finery midi, which, we reckon, would flatter all body types. 


Style Notes: If you’re looking for a simple winter ensemble that’s easy to re-create, then this formula from Joana Staygold is for you. The balance of straight leg jeans, fitted roll-neck and oversized blazer is so on-point. 


Style Notes: If you thought checked dresses were left behind in the summer months, then you’d be wrong. Monikh Dale sets the standard in this Zara midi, which she styles with nude boots and her super-cosy Saks Potts coat.


Style Notes: There’s nothing more chic than white-on-white, with a dash of tan. We’ll be copying this minimalist look next time we encounter a smart-casual dress code. 


Style Notes: We’re getting plenty of throwback vibes from Sophie Bradbury-Cox’s ’70s-inspired outfit. We particularly like the pairing of brown animal print and powder blue knit. 


Style Notes: It might look simple, but the devil is in the detail in Habba Heimisdottir’s cold weather-ready outfit. Two takeaways: Belted coats are very cool, and we think knitted dresses are making a comeback this year. You heard it here first.


Style Notes: Bianca must be reading Who What Wear UK lately, as she managed to get her hands on that cult sold-out slip skirt. We love how she’s styled it with a leather jacket and trainers. 


Style Notes: Laura updates her Zara check suit with a fantastic brown belt bag and knee-high boots. Her statement earrings are the perfect finishing touch. 


Style Notes: Lydia’s New Look jumpsuit is the perfect autumn piece. We love how she paired it with white boots and a matching bag. 


Style Notes: Edwige’s pairing of her purple Mango knit and Zara orange check skirt is proof that winter styling can still be colourful and fun. 


Style Notes: Thigh-high boots are trousers. It’s a fact. This simple styling trick takes Mimi’s Mango check suit to high-fashion levels of fab. 


Style Notes: While a cream knit, black jeans, and Burberry trench is a classic autumn outfit, Eunice swaps normal ankle boots for cowboy boots (what a great 2018 update). 


Style Notes: Plaid is one big trend of winter 2018/19. Andrea incorporates it in a classic trench.


Style Notes: We love how Eni has styled the summer dress of 2018 with a simple bandeau and Dior heels. 


Style Notes: Elif’s commitment to the yellow trend pairs perfectly with the neutral tones of her Mango bag and white jeans. 


Style Notes: Sara must have read our 15-second styling guide because we love how she’s used a scarf instead of a belt. 


Style Notes: We love how Daisy mixes her vintage Laura Ashley waistcoat with her H&M slip skirt. Extra points for colour coordinating her shoes and accessories. 


Style Notes: Is there anything more aughties than wearing a bandana as a top? It’s the perfect heat wave summer outfit. 


Style Notes: Alexa’s minimalistic style is the perfect answer to summer office fashion. She keeps the look simple and uses her accessories to style up her outfit. 


Style Notes: Swapping shorts for a skirt puts together this look, and we are here for it. 


Style Notes: Wearing all white is the perfect idea for summer styling. Haafsah’s trending pieces—her Oh Hey Girl blouse and basket bag—are simply timeless. 


Style Notes: Grece’s take on double denim is another reason we love her style. Her strong accessories game brings this look to the top. 


Style Notes: Karina knows how to wear a blazer. Not only has she layered it over a midi, but she perfectly mixes checks and florals. 


Style Notes: Taking on the ’80s this season doesn’t just mean leggings and tight neon. Swap the heels for chunky trainers and this look is full Working Girl. 


Style Notes: These Mango sandals are everywhere right now, and Elsy’s nod to Carrie Bradshaw (loose shorts + strappy heels) shows us why.


Style Notes: Polka dots and gingham? Tuva shows us we don’t have to pick a favourite print for summer. 


Style Notes: Printed dresses are kind of all we need right now. Nicole’s H&M dress could work perfectly at the office or a wedding, so it gets full marks from us. 


Style Notes: Style up your jeans and tee with matching accessories. The camel touches make this look so expensive.


Style Notes: Dina Hansen‘s Scandi-cool casual take on the pink trouser suit ticks all of the boxes for S/S 18.





Style Notes: Looking to the ’70s is always a good idea. Luckily both Madeline’s trousers and retro knit are available this decade—at Zara, of course.





Style Notes: You know how much we love a rainbow knit + print skirt combo for spring. Ellie gives it the 2018 update with a pair of mules.





Style Notes: Black and white doesn’t have to be dull. Adding texture and shape can make a lack of colour so much more exciting. 





Style Notes: Uzi knows the comfortably chic formula: a fab jumpsuit and Nike trainers. Perfect for Monday mornings when you’d rather stay in bed. 





Style Notes: Layering a dress over jeans is the perfect style trick for the early days of spring. Adding these Mango cowboy boots keeps the look fresh.


Style Notes: It’s a double Ganni whammy, and we like it. Buy Maiken’s Ganni Beacon Dress (£235) before it sells out like all of the brand’s others…


Style Notes: Looking for a way to mix up your work wardrobe? Clash checks and pair with high-heeled loafers (preferably Gucci, like these) and a printed tee à la Eni.


Style Notes: Surya couldn’t be cooler in this vinyl trench coat if she tried—yet another reason to invest. Shop for the best vinyl coats here.
