5 outfit formulas to make mornings a little easier!

After snoozing your alarm three times consecutively, you’re finally out of bed. Bleary-eyed and badly in need of coffee, you head to your wardrobe, pick out whatever doesn’t look too wrinkled, and throw it on. It’s only when you’re halfway through your commute that you realise your outfit really doesn’t match – and that you’re getting condescending looks from strangers who are clearly judging you.

If you’ve ever been in this situation before, we’ve got just the thing for you. Here are 5 tried and tested outfit formulas that will make dressing a breeze in the mornings:

Outfit formula #1

Basic Top + Ripped Jeans = Trendy Look

Ripped jeans are THE item of clothing that can instantly add ten points to your coolness quotient. They’re highly versatile and look great with basic tops including t-shirts, blouses, and shirts. To turn it up a notch, pair your basic top + ripped jeans combination with stilettos or boots – and you’re ready to take on the world!

Outfit formula #2

Off Shoulder Top + Jeans = Effortless Look

Meeting your friends for brunch? We can’t get enough of this off shoulder top + jeans combination, as well as the effortlessness that it exudes. Also: because off-shoulder tops tend to have a relaxed fit, and aren’t body hugging, this means that you can eat all you want and not have to worry about your tummy showing!

Outfit formula #3

Jumpsuit + Heels = Fashion Forward Look

We know jumpsuits have been heavily criticized by men, who say that they just don’t get it – but we’re never giving up on this highly fashion forward look that makes us feel like we can take on the world. For maximum impact, always style your jumpsuit with heels, a bold lip, and a #ladyboss attitude!

Outfit formula #4

Fitted Top + Pleated Skirt = Date Night Look

If you’re looking for a feminine, yet fun date night look, go for the no-brainer fitted top + pleated skirt combination. Pleats instantly add depth and dimension to your outfit, making it more interesting, and if you’re opting for a pleated maxi skirt, you’ll get the bonus of looking much taller than you actually are!

Outfit formula #5

Shirt + Pencil Skirt = Polished Look

Heading for a job interview or a work function where you need to look sharp? This combination of a shirt + pencil skirt will do the trick! For a timeless look, pair a crisp white shirt with a black pencil skirt; if you want something more vibrant, don’t be afraid to switch it up and swap out your white shirt for something in your favourite colour.
