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.
For a Special Occasion
Wow-Factor Dress + Cool Shades + Cute Clutch + Strappy Sandals
A special occasion is cause for both celebration and panic – what are you going to wear when the spotlight is on? Fortunately, with the help of a sparkly cocktail dress and chic accessories, this formula couldn’t be easier.
For the Office
Plain Tee + Patterned Skirt + Awesome Booties + Roomy Tote
If you want to be boardroom ready without being boring, try this easy combination, which pairs a simple tee with a fun skirt for maximum style impact.
For Every Day
Bold Jumpsuit + Thick Belt + Aviators + Sneakers
From running errands to catching up with friends over brunch, all you need for an entire day out is a jumpsuit, sneakers, and cool accessories.
For Date Night
Statement Top + Statement Trousers + Chic Footwear + Cool Bag
For an unforgettable night, wear an unforgettable outfit that pits statement piece versus statement piece. If you’re more keen on wearing a dress rather than a top and trousers for date night, focus on a statement frock and a smashing pair of oversized earrings. Other than that, this formula is all you need for a memorable look that will wow him.
