What's an Outfit guide?

Watch this video to learn why I created the outfit guides and how they help you dress nice everyday. 

 

TIP  -  Jump to 2:30 for a thorough tour of the features that come with your outfit guide.

Here's a breakdown of everything you get with the Outfit Guide suite:

Feature #1 - Outfit Guide Book

The ~300-page outfit guide walks you through updating your clothes using a pre-planned wardrobe framework. Most moms already have the bulk of recommended pieces because they are classic basics.

The main bulk of the book shows you all the ways you can combine your pieces into outfits for every day mom life.

 

The ebook and print version of the book are identical. 

Inside the Book: Mom-Friendly Wardrobe Plan

Reference visuals and an easy shopping checklist to update your wardrobe on your own timeline. No more second-guessing what's on-trend or what you should buy. Go beyond jeans and tees to explore new mom-friendly pieces you will fall in love with.

Inside the Book: Step-by-Step Instructions for Defrumping Your Wardrobe

Read detailed, easy-to-follow steps on using this guide to refresh your wardrobe starting with what you already have! You'll learn how to plan a color scheme, shop your closet, and plan a healthy budget for adding items to your wardrobe.

Inside the Book: 374 custom-designed outfit combinations

I personally plan out all the possible outfit combinations from the pieces in the wardrobe plan so that you KNOW you are using everything in as many ways possible.

Includes visuals as well as written formulas for each outfit so you can re-create it using YOUR own pieces!

Inside the Book: The Outfits on Real Moms (NEW SECTION)

Want to see how the outfit formula actually looks on a real mom? Wondering how the pieces layer? Or whether the outfit can be styled on your body type? An entirely new section will feature 25+ different real moms modeling every single outfit for you. You'll see how they wore the "at home" parts of the outfit as well as how it looks when they added the parts to go out.

Print Copy

Enjoy access to your hard copy every morning by keeping it on your bedside table. No need to even leave bed before deciding what you want to wear today!

I love having a blueprint for how to build my wardrobe and plan outfits.

Before, I would find things on clearance that were a great deal, but really ended up being similar to other pieces or only working in one outfit.

Now I can shop with a plan, and it's so much easier to plan outfits with the guide.

I also like that it's easy to dress up the outfits to be school-appropriate, as I work in a high school. Between, work, church, family, and all the other things I do on a daily basis, I'm all for anything that saves time and brings a little joy to my day!

Mary

Feature #2 - Outfit gallery web app

You'll also receive access to a handy web app where you can swipe through outfits to pick from in the morning.

You're also able to sort outfits by specific clothing pieces. Feeling like wearing your print cardigan? Sort by that item and see all the ways you can style it.

Feature #3 - Huge shopping guide curated for you

If you want me to do all the shopping for you, you’ll love the Shopping Guide included with your purchase. It gives you access to a very comprehensive catalog with tons of options for each item ranging from Amazon to Target to Old Navy.

Also includes plus size and maternity options!

This catalog is updated constantly so that you have a working shopping assistant no matter when you purchase your guide!

I used to spend so much money on cute clothes that I wouldn't wear because I had no ideas how to put them together into an outfit.

Even though I've been buying some key clothing pieces using Corina's plan, I've realized that I've actually been SAVING money thanks to the outfit guide now that I know what to buy AND how to wear it.

No more wasted purchases and I feel really good in the outfits I put together thanks to the guide.

BONUS Feature #1: "Customize Your Capsule" Mini Course

In this easy-to-navigate course, you'll get step-by-step instructions for how to update your wardrobe using the wardrobe plan, how to create your own color palette, how to adapt and swap pieces, and how to shop (even when you have little kids).

Access to this $10 mini course is included FREE!

Here's what's included inside this Bonus mini course:

I include this mini course FREE because I want you to dig as deep as you want with your outfit guide!

You can simply use the outfit ideas each morning to change up your looks or go further and really customize things to work for you. This mini course will help you do that (if you want to).

I love the layout. 

... you do a great job of showing how to customize your capsules. About half the items would work for me as is, and the rest I feel confident in being able to fill in my own pieces using your guidelines.

You give a lot of guidance in your "alternatives" for each piece, which opens up the possibilities for really anyone's personal style to show through, and look completely different from any other woman using the guide, but ensuring that we'll still look put together and always walk in and out of our closets dressed with confidence.

BONUS Feature #2: Additional pre-designed Color Palettes!

One of the ways that my wardrobe plan creates hundreds of outfit options is because I teach you to work with a set color palette. YES, we love using color around here! (Enough of those bland capsule wardrobes!)

If the color palette that the examples use doesn't suit you, just go with a different color palette when gathering your own version of pieces.

To make this easy, several pre-designed color palettes are available to choose from. If you know your season type, you will have season-specific color palettes to draw inspiration from as well!

I love the new colours and pieces, and how well you explained how to use the guide. No more confusion!

how your week looks before the outfit guide...

With the busyness of motherhood, it's so easy to stay stuck in a rut of wearing the same jeans + tee combo every day. Or hoodie and yoga pants!

Whatever your go-to is, I understand how hard it is to think creatively and branch out with your outfits.

That's why I created the outfit guide... 

how your week looks after the outfit guide...

The outfit guide shows you what's missing in your wardrobe for comfortable mom style. (Most moms already have most of the recommended pieces, but have a few key gaps that they need to fill to create more outfit remixability.)

It then shows you ALL the ways to combine basic pieces to create casual look for every day that you actually don't mind wearing all day.

By showing you what to wear each day, it takes the decision making away in the morning while dressing you in something cute and unique for your day.

It's a major confidence and mood booster!

Get ready to feel Pinterest-Perfect without any extra time or effort in the morning!

You'd never guess what a difference it can make...

What other mamas have said about the Outfit Guide...

I'm in love with this guide!

I bought the full year wardrobe because I stand in my closet every morning, look at my racks full of clothes and think "I have nothing to wear." I was looking for outfit inspirations to get me started on what to put together and how to build a flexible wardrobe. I love how Corina helps you do just that in this wardrobe guide.

The outfits are practical, look different from one another, and I can modify them to fit my lifestyle. I like the notes under the outfits that tell you how to put it together. I can't wait to try them all.

I would recommend this to anyone who struggles with getting ready in the mornings. Finally I'm feeling put together.

Rachel

I like the extra advice and suggestions regarding the clothes....if they should be long or short sleeve and the different color patterns. I also like the shopping guide option.

Cynthia

I absolutely love it. The colors and styles you picked are on point for current styles, and it will help me very much to mix and match in ways I wouldn't think to on my own.

Sarah

...It helps me when I am trying out new styles I am not that confident about, to see how you could actually put the pieces together that it might look good.

It is a huge help when I am going shopping, because I know now what I have to look for and don't just buy similar pieces all the time.

Best of all is the list of clothes with advice on what to look for if you don't find or can't afford the exact items shown in the guide. Also the tips below the outfits are very useful, because with all the layers it is sometimes difficult to know how they are meant to be worn all together.

Sabina

After always feeling at a loss with clothes and styling, Corina has provided structure and ease to finally help me have confident style and stay realistic with my life as a mom!

I absolutely love the detail she is has put into a list of items to buy (and where to buy them!) while being conscious of cost.

But she doesn't stop there, the gallery of how to mix and match the items is invaluable. Anytime I get stuck in a rut, I go back to the gallery and find new inspiration for myself.

I have never felt more comfortable or confident in how I dress and it's all thanks to Corina's Wardrobe Guide!"

Lindsay

this is awesome! i purchased the guide for some visual help and simplicity. as a mom of an 18mo and a 3mo, my body has changed a lot and i need help rebuilding my "mom friendly" wardrobe. thank you for including the accessories!!! i was never good with those and never realized what a little boost in that can do for my confidence.

also the online gallery will be a lifesaver while shopping!

Anna

I am SO excited looking through this new guide! These outfits provided here are cute, comfy and super-stylish.

Putting on a cute outfit is *just as easy* as dressing frumpy when you have a the right tools to teach you how to do so!

Brandice

I love Corina's outfit guides!

Even when I have all of the capsule pieces, it's so easy for me to get stuck in a rut of wearing the same handful of outfits. I tend to wear each piece only one or two ways.

The outfit guide helps me to branch out and find different ways to put my pieces together. Using the guide make me feel like my wardrobe is huge! Thank you!

Lisa

Corina has done a fabulous job of pulling together a simple yet flexible wardrobe plan in The Complete Guide.

It helps me to feel polished even when time and energy are at a minimum.

I love being able to access all the outfits online and search by specific piece, saving me so much time in planning what to wear.

My closet is more organized, and my mornings are more efficient. Now when I shop, I have specific items in mind, which keeps me from making impulse purchases. Two thumbs up from me for sure!

Get Real-Time Support

& Feedback from the Private Facebook Group!

You'll love the private Facebook community built around the outfit guide.

Moms are sharing their finds, asking for feedback on clothing purchases and posting pictures of the outfits they wear from the guide!

It has been described as one of the most supportive places for moms online. 

You can take advantage of the archive of shared outfit photos by searching for an Outfit number within the group! (Sometimes seeing the pieces on a real person is so helpful, right?)

Corina's work and the thriving Facebook community she has fostered have become a great source of support and joy to me as I rediscover dressing stylishly as a homeschooling mother of 7.

Frequently asked questions

What makes this 3rd edition different from the 2nd edition "Stay-at-Home Moms' Year-Round Outfit Guide?"

Of course, we've changed the name so that it's just for "Moms" not just "SAHM's". Why? Because this is the essential outfit guide you need for when you're home with kids, whether or not you also work outside the home!

The biggest new features are

  • 8 new pieces to the capsule wardrobe plan (1 removed--the Feminine Vest)
  • 86 new outfit formulas added to make a total of 374 outfits
  • a new section of 25+ real moms modeling every single outfit
  • an easily-divided "essentials" capsule to start with, outfits using two main essentials clearly identified
  • and a new easier-to-use shopping guide!
What new pieces have been added to the capsule wardrobe plan since the previous edition?

The 8 new pieces are: a Black Top, A Long Sleeve Color Tee, Fall/Winter Color Pants, a Fall/Winter Print Dress, Tights, an Extender, a Sherpa Vest, and Athletic Sneakers.

How many outfits are there in this new edition?

There are now a total of 374 outfits. 86 of them are brand new and only available in this edition.

Is this mobile friendly?

YES. 100%. Every feature of this product works on mobile. You can download the eBook to use without internet, and the other features like the web app, mini course, shopping guide and others are in mobile-friendly formats online.

What's the difference between the free PDF and the paid version?

The free PDF gives you just the essentials from the wardrobe plan and 4 outfits from the guide, it's 22 pages. The paid version gives you the ~300-pg book which includes the complete wardrobe plan, all 374 outfits, the outfits on real moms section + ALL the other tools that come with the guide.

Do I have to buy a bunch of clothes for this outfit guide to work for me?

Nope. The outfit guide isn't about spending a bunch of money on new clothes. It's about discovering how to wear what you already have and exploring new pieces that can help you maximize the use of everything you won.

To that end, the outfit guide comes with a clothing checklist called a "wardrobe plan" that shows you the kinds of pieces you should have in your wardrobe. We start by shopping your closet and most moms already have most the pieces in their wardrobe.

The outfit guide will then reveal any additional gaps in your wardrobe. I help you prioritize what to shop for first by marking the most important pieces clearly (even down to what is needed in each season!).

You can then work away at adding missing clothing items as your budget allows. The shopping guide that is included is constantly updated with various price point options from Amazon to Nordstrom to Old Navy. (Many of our users shop only at thrift stores and spend very little filling in the gaps over time!)

Even without having the full list of clothing pieces recommended in the outfit guide, you will be able to explode how many outfits you create using what you already own.

This is possible because the outfit gallery web app lets you sort by specific pieces you already own so that you can start trying outfits already in your closet.

Do I have to buy the clothes on your list for this to work?

The pieces pictured are just examples. The goal is to use the description about each piece to find something in your closet or the store that matches the description.

Should I spend money on this guide when I really need money to get some new clothes?
The smartest investment is a plan! This style guide costs about as much as a pair of pants and explodes the potential of every piece you own. These guides help you shop smart so that the clothes you do buy actually get used. The daily outfit ideas were designed to take each of the pieces in the wardrobe plan (many of which you probably already own!) and use it in multiple ways. Not only will you enjoy fun new ways to wear your existing clothes, but you'll find that the money you spend shopping becomes a much better investment.
Won’t I get bored by the size of a capsule wardrobe?

I call this a capsule because it is focused on leanness and creating remixability in your wardrobe. However at 62 pieces + shoes and accessories this is no mini, boring capsule.

It’s a complete wardrobe framework that will last you a lifetime, with 374 unique outfit combinations!

Does this work for pregnant or nursing moms?

Absolutely, it's designed to work for pregnant and nursing moms too. There are tips provided under each wardrobe item on the list to help you decide whether to adapt a non-maternity item or get something specifically maternity.

You can also choose to just use the essentials from the plan during your pregnancy as the outfits that use them are clearly marked (and you can filter by them in the web app).

And finally, at least three of our models in the "Outfits on Real Moms" are expecting so you'll have plenty of examples of how the outfits look on pregnant mamas.

Do I have to use the suggested color palette for the outfits to work?
Definitely not! I encourage everyone to stick with a color palette they love. The color palettes used in each guide are a suggestion and help demonstrate which pieces need to be in neutral versus in an accent color.

Simply use the free mini course that is included as a bonus with this guide to plan and apply your own color palette!

Isn't it easy enough to come up with my own outfit combinations?

On average most people only actually wear a third or less of the outfit potential because they gravitate towards the looks they're used to and comfortable with.

This outfit guide is designed to take the decision of what you’ll wear out of your hands, both saving your time and energy while also helping you try combinations you never thought of before.

Even though I’ve planned the different outfits in the guide myself, I still fall into ruts of wearing my pieces the same way when I don’t refer to my outfit guides!

Is this a print or digital product?

The outfit guide is available as both an eBook and a printed hard copy (identical in content). The other included resources are all digital (outfit gallery web app, mini course, shopping guide, etc.).

Is every outfit shown on a "real mom" model?

Yes all 374 outfits are modeled in the last section of the book. There is a picture of the "At Home" version of the outfit and the "Going Out" version so you can see how the layering works.

Is the section with the real moms modeling the outfits included in both the eBook and print book?

Yes, the ebook and print book are identical in content. The section on real moms modeling the outfits is included in both!

What sizes and body shapes are the moms modeling the outfits?

There are 25+ models and they range in sizes from 2-18, heights 5' - 5'10'', and cover all the body types. There are also a few pregnant models.

Are there any dressy outfits?

Yes, although this is predominantly a casual capsule wardrobe/outfit guide, I've included a few dressy pieces and 56 dressy outfit ideas for day-to-day needs like baby showers, PTO meetings, recitals, date night, church services, etc.

How often is the guide updated?

This edition will likely not get an update for another couple of years (at least). It was designed to be a bit more classic to last you longer. Even if there is a future update you don't lose access to the edition you own and aren't required to update to keep using it.

Do you have to repurchase this every year?

No, this product is designed to be used for many years to come. Most owners of the previous edition are upgrading simply because of all the additions to this new version, but it's not required.

You will not lose access to your guides when a new edition comes out. (When the Pioneer Woman comes out with a new cookbook, the one you own doesn't stop working for you does it? But you still can't help get that new one because you want all the new recipes! This works the same way.)

How much do you save in terms of time and money by using this Outfit Guide?

There are almost immeasurable time and money savings when you use this Outfit Guide to help you make smart clothing purchases and wear those pieces in every way possible, for as long as possible. But to get concrete, let's say you pay $20 for a new top. Before using the outfit guide, that top might "go" with 3 of your pants and one of your cardigans. So you have 3 new outfits to wear. After the outfit guide, you would buy a $20 top that you KNOW will work with all your bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts). There are 13 recommended bottoms in the plan, so you just added a minimum of 13 outfits instead of just 3. Then consider how unlikely you are to wear your new top in all the possible ways (because who can keep track?!). But with the outfit guide, you simply follow what's laid out for you so you KNOW you're using ALL your pieces in every possible way. You also buy fewer pieces and instead get pieces

Cost reduction: ~400% reduction in cost per wear of the items you add to your wardrobe when you go shopping.

Time reduction: No more time spent just "staring at your closet." Spend less time getting ready in the morning and yet be even MORE put together than before. Bye-bye decision fatigue!

What's the difference between the What to Wear calendar and the outfit guide?

 The book shows you all the details of all 374 outfits and is ~300 pages offered as an eBook and hardcopy.

The calendar is a printable and takes those outfits and spreads them out over the 12 months of the year, with a different outfit assigned to each day (and the extras listed at the end of the calendar 😉 since there are more than 365).

Is there a discount if I order more than one?

Yes, you will automatically get 20% off the second copy if you add two to cart! (Limit 6) Get one for yourself and one for a friend. Email us for how to get the 2nd copy to your friend.

Does this guide help me plan my color scheme?

Yes the mini course that comes with the guide has detailed steps and editable templates you can use to make this easy and fun!

Does this work for plus size too?

Yes, we have moms of every shape and size using it and looking fab! We also include plus size shopping options in the Shopping Guide that comes with the Outfit Guide.

What if I’m over 40, will this still work for me?

Absolutely! A majority of our moms are actually in the 35-55 range. And we have many seniors using it too.

The plan is flexible enough to adapt to your taste and style while still allowing the outfit formulas in the Outfit Guide to work beautifully.

What should I do with the clothes in my wardrobe that aren’t on the list?

If you like them and they fit well, keep them! You can swap them in on some of the outfit formulas within the Outfit Guide. They will simply add more versatility!

The point of this product is to help you find the best in your closet and start using it. It's not about changing your entire wardrobe to fit into a box. You use the Outfit Guide as a framework to keep you sane, chic, and happy in the wardrobe department!
