Does anyone else feel like they’re perpetually running late for life? If you’re feeling the pressures of modern living, planning ahead for the coming day is probably at the bottom of your to-do list. However, a little outfit planning will go a long way in making your mornings less frantic.

Rather than running you through all of the possible outfit combinations for every conceivable life event, we’ve decided to break down completely foolproof outfit formulas that really work. The best part is that each look requires only four simple pieces, which you likely already own in one form or another. If you don’t, however, we’ve provided a shoppable gallery for each look to help you achieve style enlightenment – at a fraction of the effort. Oh and we made sure that each look contains a variety of price points, from statement splurges to affordable high-street heroes. You can thank us later.
