Have you ever seen the TV show Fixer Upper on HGTV? If you haven’t, you are seriously missing out and need to go watch it RIGHT NOW! If you have watched the show, and are anything like me you think, “Man! I LOVE Joanna Gaines style…I wish she would come decorate my house AND dress me too!” Being as obsessed with her clothing style as I am, I did some research and wanted to give you a guide to Joanna Gaines wardrobe.
7 steps to JoJo’s wardrobe
1. SIMPLICITY will never go out of style.

For the past 8 months I've been working on new pieces for October market and I'm so excited the time is finally here! If you're going to @highpointmarket make sure and chk out my new fall collection of Magnolia Home furniture and accessories in H744! (Available in stores Spring '17)
Joanna Gaines lives anything but a simple life, but I appreciate her view on keeping the things that matter most in view, and everything else stays simple. If you haven’t read their book “A Magnolia Story” you need to. I wrote a review about it if you want to check it out.
Her wardrobe is one thing that I’ve noticed she keeps pretty simple. She has a neutral wardrobe palette with simple pieces as staples. It seems Joanna likes mixing textures and color over wearing a ton of bright bold patterns. She basically has a capsule wardrobe because everything goes together and her items of clothing can be interchanged.
2. Add a POP OF COLOR to a neutral wardrobe.

Like I said, she has a simple base wardrobe to which she adds a pop of color using accessories like scarves and jackets. Occasionally you will see her in a bright colored dress or a pattern, but she tends to play those down with basic pieces like a jean jacket.
3. Own a good pair of BOOTS or WEDGES.

One thing Joanna wears most frequently is a good pair of boots or wedges. Add wedges or boots to any casual outfit to get the casual but put together look she has perfected.
4. LAYER your clothing.
Add a cardigan or jacket of some sort to a plain Tee to dress it up! Joanna frequents this tan leather jacket to play up a casual outfit….I LOVE IT!
5. Denim on Denim is OK.

Against all supposed fashion “rules”, Joanna wears denim on denim…. AND ROCKS IT!!! I think the key here is that she wears different shades of denim in the same outfit.
6. DON’T FORGET the accessories and polish!!!
You will mostly see Joanna’s fingers painted in the most beautiful neutral colors, proving once again LESS IS MORE! Also, she wears beautiful simple jewelry that she sells in her online shop Magnolia Market! Check it out! The leather bracelets are my favorite…
7. Fancy can be mixed with casual.
I love how she pairs this denim shirt with frills. I mostly just threw this in because I love the combo so much! Although, I am trying to decide where I would wear it….
When trying to recreate Joanna Gaines wardrobe for yourself, remember: simplicity is key, add a pop of color to a neutral wardrobe, denim on denim is OK, boots are the way to go, and don’t forget the polish and accessories! I hope this guide helps you simplify your wardrobe, and get that style we all love!
