I have talked about this for years and I still do it. I absolutely think it helps me to be more content with what is in my closet! I think the key is to not take it too literally. Find something in the same color or color family. Find something you have that can can work. Do not try to be exact!
Here is what I do:
I do a very specific search on Pinterest or Google images or both for a piece in my closet that I want to wear. I type in “black button down shirt outfit”:
I screenshot the inspo that I like the best…
I like how she has light jeans and a brown belt. I probably wouldn’t have thought of that on my own.
I like her darker distressed jeans and the pop of red. I don’t have a red handbag but I have red clogs. See what I mean about not being too literal?
I really like the look of black on light jeans so here’s another inspo of that look…
Here’s another example. I just knew I wanted to wear a sweater with jeans but wasn’t feeling inspired…
I screenshot some front tucked sweater looks because I think showing some waist is more flattering…
And, I got a new fanny pack that works way better for me than my Lululemon bag, so I went to get some inspo for that! The pack looks kinda cheap in the Amazon photo, but it looks way better in person. I am going to use it as my wallet and throw it into my bigger tote for school, but it is plenty roomy for anything else I need to do.
I keep these screenshots on my phone until I try the outfit and see if it works for me.

Do you think this method would help you to shop your closet?
