We all have those days, you know the ones where your up all night long studying for exams, and then before you know it, it’s morning. You’re feeling lazy and tired, just wanting to hit that snooze button. You have to get up and start your day, and then even deciding what to wear can be difficult.
Don’t cringe to the thought of getting dressed, but the goal is to look cute in your comfortable laid-back outfit.
I recommend, you ladies, to avoid sweatpants, yoga pants, Uggs or ugg-ly boots, oversized sweatshirts, thin leggings, and any workout clothing.
Let’s begin, with the most common pieces in any ladies’ wardrobe, a pair of skinny jean and a plain white tee. This simple look can have many variations.
You can add a print or plain scarf, and then pair it off with a knit cardigan and simple flats. If it’s a rainy day pair it with neutral color ankle boots.
If you’re not into flats or boots, recommend a pair of sneakers such as Keds or Converse.
For a get-up-and-go look, try a chambray shirt with colored jeans either burgundy, khaki, olive or any fall color. Pair this outfit with a fashion scarf and any shoe of your choice.
Do you have simple dress that you are dying to wear? Well, pair it with a neutral color cardigan. If its chilly outside put a jacket or coat on, add knee high socks adding a shoe of choice preferably flats.
For skirts, wear a skater skirt or A-line skirt it can be print or simple. Add a simple knit sweater, cute tights to your liking and pair it with ankle boots. Finish the look with accessories like a gold cuff, or watch then add a stack of bracelets.
Warning when wearing a dress or skirt, make sure it’s not windy!
For those cold and rainy days, put a dark wash skinny jean or black jean, pair with a long sleeve stripe shirt. Put on a khaki coat and dark brown boots. Accessorize with a black knit scarf and beanie, if you prefer.
Now for hair and makeup, I know it can be a hassle, especially when you’re running late to class and just so tired, but here are a few quick tips to look good with your laid-back outfit.
Have you heard of the ‘no makeup’ look? It’s pretty and simple to do every morning.
To begin, apply a BB cream which is a five in one everyday cream. it includes foundation, moisturizer, sunscreen, concealer and primer all in one coat. This is a quick and easy touch to brighten up your face in half the time it would take to apply the regular amount of makeup.
Add a hint of blush to enhance your cheek bones; apply mascara, then a tinted lip balm.
Doing you hair shouldn’t take more than five minutes. Here are a few quick styles.
The topknot or bun is the simple way to do your hair, just add a turban or headband to complete a look.
A cute, lightly teased ponytail is quick. Try a loose side braid to get that effortless, laid-back look.
So remember, yoga pants and sweatshirts don’t have to be your go-to this season; there are plenty of options where you’ll be comfy while still being adorable.
